PS5 Is Already Getting Some Beautiful Custom Paint Jobs

A week after release in some parts of the world, new PS5 owners are doing some beautiful things with their new consoles and controllers, with custom paint jobs appearing online.The PS5’s removable white plates lend themselves nicely to customisation, with one of the most popular recent posts on r/PS5 coming from Hawkijustin, who used Plastidip (a rubberized coating often used for car paint jobs) to turn the PS5’s bright white sails into a stately matte black:

On the more flamboyant end of things, Craayons custom painted an orange and white design, topped with a skull-and-PlayStation-logo motif (and you can see a video of the full design on Reddit):

Inspired by YouTuber Dave2D, Reddit user akarshbansal11 went for something more on-brand, creating the kind of striking Spider-Man shell theme that I’m sure many are hoping will become an official design one day soon:

Perhaps more impressive are the custom DualSense designs we’re seeing emerge. While we know that parts of the controller are removable, it’s a fairly strudy single unit, meaning full body customisation for the PS5’s controller is potentially a tricky business.

That’s why Yakuza83’s all-black DualSense is remarkable, not only turning the entire controller into a classic PlayStation hue, but replacing its face buttons with DualShock 4 designs, while apparently remaining fully functional:

KrysSpace went in another direction, spraypainting three separate sections of the DualSense to turn it into a galaxy purple design:

And if you’re wondering whether the Xbox Series consoles are getting the same treatment, we’re seeing fewer custom designs so far (presumably because of how the console itself is less modular than PS5) – but it’s absolutely worth pointing out TheBardAbaddon, who appears to have turned their Series X into Kingpin from Into the Spider-Verse. I want this sticker immediately:
