Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that it will release new gray camouflage versions of the DualSense wireless controller, PlayStation 5 console covers, and Pulse 3D wireless headset this fall. While expected to be released alongside the October release of modern military shooter Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, the new gray camouflage pattern designs will primarily serve as a tool for making jokes about how you can't find your DualSense controller (because it's camouflaged).
The gray camouflage console covers for those who prefer the classic white PlayStation 5 appearance to the modern design will provide an opportunity to joke or annoy their spouses, partners, or roommates, saying, "Dont worry, youll never have to see that ugly PS5 again." This is in reference to the camouflaged design, which would only work in practice if you were, say, hunting deer in the woods.
Sony's Gray Camouflage Collection for PS5 will launch on October 14. The DualSense controller and PS5 console covers will be launched sometime in December. Coloured DualSense controllers retail for $74.99, a $5 increase over standard PS5 controllers, and existing console covers retail for $54.99.
Here's a closer look at the PS5 Gray Camouflage Collection, trust me, they're all there if you look closely! Haha.
The Gray Camouflage collection follows a similar pattern of PlayStation 4 releases. During that console's life cycle, Sony released DualShock 4 controllers in at least four camouflage colors: green, blue, red, and gray.
In January, Sony began selling colored PS5 console covers, allowing current-gen console owners to get rid of the standard white covers by getting Midnight Black, Cosmic Red, Nova Pink, Starlight Blue, and Galactic Purple options. DualSense controllers were also released to match.
