A piece of Sony marketing material seems to confirm that the PlayStation 5 will come in black, but is it real?
When the design of the PlayStation 5 was finally revealed, fans’ opinions were very clearly split. Some loved it, some hated it, some thought it looks like a Wi-Fi router.
There wasn’t much agreement on the colour scheme either, and many have been calling for a black version ever since the DualSense controller was announced.
It turns out such a variant may actually exist, as some allegedly official Sony marketing material has been shared online via the ResetEra forum and it features a black PlayStation 5 and matching DualSense controller.
According to the poster who shared the images, the material is part of an in-store promotion to encourage workers to sell more Sony Xperia phones, for which they’ll be rewarded various prizes.
Other users on the forum have pointed out that the PlayStation 5 in the picture has likely been photoshopped so as to match the aesthetic of the rest of the picture, but even if the image is faked that doesn’t necessarily mean the promotion itself – and the black PlayStation 5 – isn’t real.
And assuming that this promo is official (which it does seem to be considering the amount of effort and detail put into it), it would be weird for Sony to advertise a black PlayStation 5 in any capacity if it had no intentions of making one.
It’s certainly not confirmation of anything though and so we’ll still have to wait for Sony to make an announcement itself.
If it does exist, the next question is if it will be part of the initial PlayStation 5 launch or come afterwards. Which is also impossible to say, not least because Sony has yet to announce when the PlayStation 5 will actually launch.
All it has said is that the PlayStation 5 will be out later this year, in time for the Christmas season.
