If you like a black PS5, we can inform you that a customized PlayStation 5 version with PS2 theme can be purchased today from SUP3R5 (January 8).
SUP3R5 has announced that you can order the cars from 21:00 tonight, so if you are interested, you should set an alarm so that you can be ready in the same second that the cars become available. Consoles can be shipped worldwide (including Norway), but the manufacturer reserves the right to refuse to send parcels to certain parts of the world if the postal service proves to be problematic.
The car with the impressive retro look is not officially linked to Sony in any way, which is not surprising, but the result is nothing to say. Look here.
Orders will open at 15:00 EST on 01.08.21. pic.twitter.com/w6Pay4WbFAJanuary 4, 2021
The custom console with suitable DualSense controllers will be released in the spring of 2021 (or “late spring”, as the manufacturer says), and the creators aimed to emulate the expression of the iconic PS2, which is still 20 years after its launch. sold PlayStation console of all time, with 155 units sold worldwide.
SUP3R5 also informs that they will only produce 304 of these consoles, so if you like a black PS5, then you just can’t wait, you have to be ready with the card number stored when the sale starts.
Why only 304 units? This should be a reference to when the PS2 computer was originally launched: 03/04/00. As for the DualSense controller, the company has been a little more concerned with symbolism and will therefore make 500 black variants, which will give you a slightly higher chance of hijacking a controller or two from the console itself.
According to SUP3R5, there must have been up to 54,000 people on the waiting list 12 hours ago (at 04:00 Norwegian time) and it is clear that this number is increasing and increasing only in the hours before the launch of the black PS5 car. We may not need to point it out, but not only do you have to be fast, but you also have to have a good dose of luck if you want to be able to handle one of these beautiful PS5 variants.
Although I say you should never be told the odds, we also want everyone to have expectations under control for tomorrow. Right now, we have just under 54,000 “waiting lists.” We are horrified by that number. We take root for each of you.January 8, 2021
The product listings on the manufacturer’s website also state that the DualSense controller must be completely disassembled in order to be converted to a black version, which means that the warranty you obtain from Sony is no longer valid. this might be worth thinking about before placing a large order. The console itself will still be subject to Sony’s warranty, as only the side panels will be replaced.
The DualSense controller costs $ 99 (about 840 Norwegian kroner, before taxes), and for the car itself you have to pay $ 649 (5490 Norwegian kroner, before taxes). For us Norwegians, it may not seem so bad, but if you add customs duties and VAT, you are quickly up to almost 7900 crowns, without transport. Of course, you can also buy pure gold PS5 cars for 85,000 crowns, so the price is, of course, relative. Right now, most people are probably happy if they can find the PS5 in stock.
It can be risky
Needless to say, we do it anyway: if you order a PS5 machine or DualSense controllers from SUP3R5, you do it at your own risk. This is neither officially accepted nor approved, so Sony may ban everything before delivering any car. After all, this has already happened to a company that sold custom PS5 cases last year.
If you are looking for a completely normal PS5, then we can inform you that there is still a car drought in Norway, but there are rumors that new transports are on their way to the UK these days. We can always hope that this means that some cars will drip on us in the not too distant future.
