After a long drought, Sony has finally started to reveal some limited edition consoles and controllers for the PS5. It’s fitting that they’re releasing them alongside Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 which is arguably their biggest bet yet. This special bundle will come with a PlayStation 5 and a Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 DualSense controller and it looks stunning.
The console and controller both feature a design that’s influenced by Venom and the symbiote. The console shows a depiction of the symbiote moving towards a White Spider icon while the controller shows the symbiote already taking over the device. This is one of the most aesthetically pleasing designs we’ve seen on a PS5 console and controller in quite some time.
If you want to get your hands on the special console and controller, then you’ll be able to pre-order them next week. They’ll be available on PlayStation Direct starting Friday 28 July. It’s not clear how much this special bundle will cost but it’ll likely be a bit more expensive than a regular console.
Aside from the limited edition console, Sony has also revealed a Spider-Man 2 DualSense controller and a themed face plate for the PS5. The DualSense will be released separately, while the face plates can be purchased for any existing PlayStation 5 console. The designs can be bought separately as well, so you can add some Spider-Man 2 flair to any existing PS5 console you have.
Whether you’re looking to pick up the limited edition console or just want the new DualSense and Face Plate, you can find all of the information you need over on the PlayStation blog. The official release date for the console and DualSense is September 1st while you can pre-order both now.
Insomniac Games also released a story trailer and more details about Venom and the symbiote during its panel. It’s going to be a wild ride with the two Spider-Men facing off against the monstrous symbiote and all of its power.
