The standard white model is the only PS5 model currently available (for those who happen to find it). And less than a month after the console was released, custom consoles are already showing up on the web in North America and Japan.

A final example of a custom PS5 shows a console “wrapped” in vinyl. For a specific rendering:
As a reminder, Sony does not currently offer any PS5 other than the white model. However, statements by one of these representatives suggest that other colors are already planned. And a recent rumor has it that a PS5 made in collaboration with rapper Travis Scott may also be in the pipeline.
