Sony will unveil PS5 (opens in new tab) special editions "at some point", PlayStation has confirmed in a new interview following the DualSense hands-on live stream (opens in new tab) earlier today. 

Talking to Geoff Keighley on Summer Game Fest (opens in new tab), PlayStation's head of worldwide marketing Eric Lempel was asked whether we might get other colours of controllers or consoles" of the PS5 in the lead up to its Holiday 2020 launch. 

"We'll talk about it at some point," assured Lempel. "It's a hard enough job to get the unit that we showed out but we'll talk about it at some point"

Lempel's comments are interesting in light of recent response to a question on Linkedin (opens in new tab) from PlayStation designer Matt MacLaurin, who promised that PS5 players "can count on even more beautiful special editions” to the base white PS5 design revealed last month.

"Customization with special editions will be beyond anything seen before", continued  MacLaurin, who also expressed his own personal support for a "Horizon Forbidden West (opens in new tab) special edition" of Sony's next gen console. 

Last week, MacLaurin also took to Linkedin to confirm that the PS5 will boast a "100% overhaul of PS4 UI", promising that it's "more subtle than flashy but no pixel is untouched.”

The designer promised that we'll be seeing the new PS5 home screen (opens in new tab), which was teased during last week's Future of Gaming (opens in new tab) live stream, "soon", suggesting another PS5 blowout isn't too far away.
