If you’re still waiting to get your hands on a PlayStation 5, well, shame. Sony is working on pumping those stock numbers up (way up), but we’re miles away from there being enough PlayStation 5 consoles out in the world.
For those of you who did manage to lay your hands on the console: this one is for you. Sony is releasing a Grey Camouflage range of PS5 peripherals, recolouring the DualSense, Pulse headset, and the console’s side plates.
PlayStation’s grey area
“The PlayStation design team reimagined our camouflage pattern to reflect a fresher, more contemporary feel. If you look closely, you’ll notice that the iconic PlayStation Shapes have been subtly incorporated into the pattern,” says Sony, speaking on the updated design.
Yes everyone, ‘look closely’ at the inclusion of the PlayStation logo on your PlayStation devices. Cleverly integrating a logo into a series of greyish blobs may not be worth the accompanying price increase, though.
The new design is hardly ugly. The newly-minted devices look pretty clean and attractive, particularly if you’re a fan of a certain sort of military shooter. It certainly beats the look of the vanilla PlayStation 5, though any of the aftermarket side plates and controllers do the same. Will it be worth the price to look like you’re about to deploy on patrol? That’s up to you to decide.

Sony’s grey camouflage range is releasing soon, with international pre-orders opening on 15 September. The official release takes place on 14 October. Whether South Africa will get them right away remains to be seen. We’re sure we will see them, even if we’re slightly behind the U.S.
No prices were mentioned. An educated guess suggests that the new range will cost more than a standard controller. That’s usually how the game goes in South Africa — unless there’s a serious special on. That won’t happen for some time yet. The disguised gear has yet to even launch, it’s far too early to hope for a price drop.
