The PS5 Slim Midnight Black Console Covers Are Dropping Next Month


Good news for those holding out for a fully-matte, black cover set for their (too) shiny new PS5 Slim console, with PlayStation revealing that the Midnight Black Console Covers for the newer, slimmer PlayStation 5 are launching on March 22nd.

Like the other PS5 Slim cover sets, these will contain a total of five panels, allowing users to attach them to either the fully-digital PS5 Slim or one with a disc drive installed.

They’ll go for $84.95 in-stores, with pre-orders already available at some local retailers below:

In our review of the new “Slim” PlayStation 5 console, we said, “For the vast majority of existing PS5 owners, the new slimmer model isn’t going to inspire any real need for an upgrade – but that’s hardly the point. PlayStation’s not only taken the opportunity to squeeze the immense size of the console down to a more reasonable volume, but added some welcome improvements along the way, meaning those looking to pick up a PS5 for the first time or add another to their household are getting an even better version of an already-great machine.”
