If you’ve it in you to beat scalpers and bots to the punch, you’ll be able to place an order for a retro PlayStation 2-inspired PlayStation 5 beginning 3 pm EST on Friday, January 8th.

Produced within the USA, the console by SUP3R5 can be restricted to 304 items – a quantity that itself is impressed by the PS2’s authentic launch date of 03/04/00. The beginning worth is $649. SUP3R5 can be promoting DualSense controllers individually for $99 every, they usually’ll be restricted to 500 items. Both merchandise will start delivery someday in late Spring this yr.

A disclaimer concerning the DualSense notifies potential consumers that its “retro inspired conversion process requires a complete disassembly” of the system. This implies that there can be no warranties so in case your controller conks out, you’ll be wanting $99 and nothing to switch it with. The excellent news is that the console itself gained’t be disassembled – solely its facet panels can be eliminated in the course of the makeover, which doesn’t void guarantee.

“The SUP3R5 team carefully applies the retro inspired design to each unit by hand, a tedious process that is performed with the utmost attention to detail and quality,” reads an official description. “The entire process is performed gloved and with necessary safety precautions, leaving your console, controller, and accessories untouched by human hands.”

Considering {that a} important proportion of the PlayStation group nonetheless hasn’t secured the usual white PS5 that was formally launched final November, with the ability to order this one looks as if a pipe dream. But it’s price attempting, I assume.
