With the PlayStation 5’s release approaching immediately, fans are already starting to think about limited editions of the console that might tickle their fancy, and one artist has even created their Spider-Man: Miles Morales design. Sony has already promised unique edition designs for the PS5 that will come in the future and has explained that that the outside plates on the console will be completely customizable.
Many declared their disapproval of the standard PS5’s black and white design, with an internet trend comparing the console to a wifi router, and many more comparisons drawn by some pretty hilarious memes poking fun at the system. The fact that the PS5 functions both vertically and horizontally didn’t help with the memes, but it is also a motivating feature, as not all consoles work both of the ways. Various new designs for the PS5 have surfaced, including one that replaces the white plates with 24K gold ones along with a golden DualSense controller and headphones.
Giuseppe Spinelli, who some might know as online as Snoreyn, collaborated up with LetsGoDigital to make a Miles Morales themed PS5 and controller. LetsGoDigital shows that although delivering this design at launch to coincide with the Spider-Man: Miles Morales game would work correctly, this is an unofficial design that Sony has nothing to do with, so followers won’t be seeing this design on original consoles. This design shows the Spider-Man symbol in red over the two black plates.
The spider is deliberately elevated so that it’s in 3D, sitting on a web that extends over the surface of both vessels. The web has been done in a shinning red colour that variations with the matte black background. The web shows red light, and this combined with red LEDs around the ventilation openings creates a fun but elegant effect. Miles Morales’ suit inspired the design, and the DualSense controller also gets a makeover suggestive of his crime-fighting costume. A silky reflective red web on a black background cover out the controllers, with the figures on the buttons in red as well. The DualSense touchpad is adorned with the slogan, “Be Yourself”.
Having removable plates allows its users to choose a design for their PS5 without having to spring for a pricey special edition. A few limited-edition versions of the PS4 have come out over the years, and new ones have been released as recently as this year when The Last Of Us Part II graced the PS4.
