The PS5 is going gray with its new camouflage accessory line

Sony has announced a brand new color for its lineup of PlayStation 5 accessories: gray camouflage. PlayStation 5 console plate covers, DualSense controllers, and Pulse 3D wireless headsets will be made available for pre-order on September 15. The covers and the controllers will launch worldwide on October 14, while the headsets will ship sometime in December.

These accessories will be first offered on the PlayStation Direct store, followed by other participating retailers starting on October 28. Eligible countries include the U.S., U.K., France, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg.

As usual, the faceplate covers are compatible with both the disc and digital versions of the PlayStation 5.

The purpose of this camouflage design is to give the console a more contemporary feel. If you look hard enough, the design team weaved in PlayStation shapes within the camouflage design itself.

No information has been given about the pricing of the gray camouflage lineup, but previous colors were priced at $55 for the faceplates and at around $75 for the controllers. The headset usually retails for $100. The price is worth noting as Sony recently announced a price increase for the PlayStation 5 console itself outside of the U.S. Thankfully, it seems like the accessories aren’t following suit.

That isn’t the only PlayStation accessory news we’ve gotten recently. At Gamescom Opening Night Live, Sony unveiled its latest controller: the DualSense Edge. The customizable gamepad will give the PS5 its own version of the Xbox Elite Series 2 controller. That controller has the same black-and-white color scheme as the standard DualSense, so it’s unclear if it’ll get color variants like gray camouflage down the line.

Is Helldivers 2 coming to Xbox?

Helldivers 2 was a massive hit right out of the gate for developer Arrowhead Game Studios, and the game's popularity has only grown since its release in February of this year. Shedding the top-down perspective of the first Helldivers, this cooperative third-person shooter took the world by surprise by being equally hilarious, fun, and challenging. It demands everyone work together to overcome massive hordes of bugs while also dealing with the fact that one player's slipup could derail the whole mission in the most humorous fashion. It's a total riot, and it's not hard to see why.

However, players on Xbox haven't had an opportunity to join in on the fun, as the game is only available on PlayStation 5 and PC. Since so many modern games have timed exclusivity, you may be wondering if that's the case for Helldivers 2, and we've got the answer for you below.
Will Helldivers 2 ever come to Xbox?
It's very unlikely that Helldivers 2 will ever come to Xbox consoles. The primary reason for this is that Helldivers 2 is published by Sony Computer Entertainment, which is a direct competitor to Microsoft. Sony is known for being very protective of IPs and brands, meaning the company tends to keep its published games off of competing consoles.

3 PS Plus free demos you should try this weekend (May 17-19)
Peter attacks enemies with the Symbiote Suit in Marvel's Spider-Man 2.

One of the most underrated features of PlayStation Plus Premium is the game trials that it offers. Although Sony does not put its AAA games on the service the day they release, it and several other third-party publishers offer up free demos that essentially give players full access to the game for a limited period of time. It's a great way to test a new game before you buy and it also gives you an excuse to try out a variety of different games this weekend without making the time commitment to beat them all. I looked through the full list of game trials that PlayStation Plus Premium offers and pinpointed three of the demos that are most worth your time.

The first is a two-hour demo for one of the PlayStation 5's biggest exclusives. The next will give you a two-hour taste of the latest fighting game in a long-running franchise. Finally, the one-hour trial of one of the year's best indies will get you hooked on the card-based roguelike that consumed my life for a bit.

When is Stardew Valley update 1.6 coming to consoles?
Unfortunately, we don't have an immediate answer regarding when Stardew Valley update 1.6 will land on consoles, though we do know it's on the way in the near future. In a social media post on April 26, developer ConcernedApe gave a minor update on the console versions of the newest update, saying, "Console and mobile ports are still in progress, thank you again for your continued patience!" This doesn't answer much, but it should at least give console players the peace of mind that the update is still headed their way and will be available as soon as possible.

In the meantime, you can check out Stardew Valley's 1.6 patch notes to see everything new in the update, which includes a wide variety of bug fixes, translation changes, and gameplay improvements that should make most players happy.
