The PS5 is said to arrive in different colors, but it is unknown, yet it will do so at launch.
Some fans have had mixed reactions to the PS5’s black and white design. They might be happy to find out that they’ll probably be able to buy the console in a different color pattern. Here is what you should know.
PlayStation 5’s New Styles Might Turn Out to Be True
The news about PS5 arriving in different colors comes from a Linkedin thread published by Matt MacLaurin, the vice president of UX design at PlayStation. We get the chance to find out more from MacLaurin before closing the thread, including some details about the PS5’s interface.
While MacLaurin didn’t offer too many details, he was surprisingly candid about some of Sony’s concepts for its next-gen console. He had some things to say about various styles, particularly special editions. When asked about an all-black PS5, MacLaurin said that players would “definitely be seeing some special editions.” He also detailed how the PS5 “is also customizable in ways previous gens weren’t.”
So far, the special editions of PlayStation consoles arrive in various colors, like the white Vita for Assasin’s Creed: Liberation, or the red PS4 with a different style for Spider-Man. If fans want a PS5 with a different style, they might have to pay a premium for it and receive it bundled with a particular game, but it seems like they’ll almost definitely have the option. Utilizing the last PlayStation special editions as a guide, it’s not that hard to paint a picture about the possible PS5 special editions.
Among others, we received a red-and-white PS4 for Spider-Man, a blue-and-black PS4 for Uncharted 4, and a black-and-white PS4 for Death Stranding. So, let’s imagine a sleek purple PS5 for Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, a bold red-and-black PS5 for Spider-Man: Miles Morales, or a baby blue PS5 for Horizon: Forbidden West. None of these styles are guaranteed, but they don’t seem that impossible, right?
