When you look past the somewhat awkward design, the PS5 is actually a pretty sleek device. The black-and-white contrast looks nice in most entertainment centers. But what if you could spruce it up just a bit, maybe put a personal spin on it? The following best PS5 skins pull from the annals of PlayStation, pop culture icons, and generally cool designs to help you put a fun spin on your console.
20. Gran Turismo 7 PS5 Skin
It’s not just that Gran Turismo is a staple of the PlayStation brand that landed this skin on a best-of list. Just look at that coloring. The black, red, and blue shading are quite stunning on their own. Throw in the Gran Turismo 7 logo and white tire tread marks on the DualSense, and you have yourself a complete design perfect for the PS5.
19. Star Wars Stormtrooper Confetti Skin
There are a lot of different PS5 Star Wars skins to choose from (there’s even another later on in this list), but the coloring and simplicity of this confetti skin are hard to pass up. The black PS5 is such a clean look. The colorful Stormtrooper just adds to the fun and stylish aesthetic that’s quite the opposite of Star Wars’ typical palette.
18. God of War Ragnarok Electric Black PS5 Skin
You can’t touch on the PlayStation brand without talking about God of War, and this skin depicting Kratos against the Ragnarok styling is beautiful. The legend is front and center, perfectly detailed to pop against the Ragnarok symbol and neon bolts of lightning. The DualSense skin could have been tweaked a little, but that powder blue is such a nice color for the touchpad.
17. Dragon Ball Z PS5 Skin
Dragon Ball Z is such a popular property that it’s bound to appeal to many PS5 owners. And this design—which features Goku, Vegeta Blue, Majin Vegeta, Baby Vegeta, Saiyan Saga Vegeta, and more—works hard to appeal to console owners. The neon aesthetic pops off the black background, creating quite the contrast that will look beautiful in any entertainment center.
16. Rick and Morty PS5 Skin
The nefarious duo is at it again, this time dragging your PS5 through their interdimensional portals of mischief. This wrap sports two fun designs, depicting the titular Rick and Morty in all manner of peril. Matching DualSense skins really completes the look and the blend of vibrant green and electric picks and purples pop for an attractive and hilarious design.
15. Mortal Kombat Scorpio/Sub-Zero PS5 Skin
It’s a rivalry for the ages as Scorpio and Sub-Zero vie for control of this stunning PS5 skin. The menace from the Netherrealm and the assassin of the Lin Kuei stand side-by-side, both summoning their power to deal a devastating blow to their opponent. This PS5 console wrap comes with two DualSense skins, one depicting the eye of Scorpio and the other the eye of Sub-Zero.
14. The Core Signature PS5 Skin
Stepping away from the pop culture icons making up much of this best PS5 wraps and skins list, this design is just too cool to pass up. The Core feels like a reference to the overactive fan of the PS4, suggesting the internal components ran red hot. Both your PS5 and DualSense will get a molten makeover as a fiery, red inferno threatens to break free and wreak havoc all over your living room.
13. Magna Signature PS5 Skin
Things are really heating up on the PS5—and we don’t mean literally. This signature PS5 skin unleashes the fury of Mother Nature in a stunning flow of magma. The inferno threatening to overtake the console is held back only by the dried lava rock, creating a striking contrast of deep blacks and bright orange. The DualSense skin is just as much a visual treat as both console and controller get overtaken by boiling lava.
12. Horizon Forbidden West PS5 Skin
Aloy prepares for the fight of her life in beautifully crafted skins for the PS5 and DualSense controller. On the console, the heroin of Horizon Forbidden West holds her bow close as a mechanical threat creeps its way onto the scene. Things get even dicier on the DualSense skin, which features a Sunwing front-and-center with a Clawstrider just waiting to pounce on its prey.
11. Star Wars Darth Vader PS5 Skin
The Dark Side has never looked so good. Darth Vader and his iconic TIE Fighter are the focus of this red and black PS5 and DualSense skin. His fist clenched, angered by the elusive Cal Kestis, Vader plans his next move to bring down the Jedi that survived Order 66. It’s a relatively simple design that stands out thanks to the deep red and spots of white accents. The DualSense controller is especially nice against the standard white buttons.
10. Purple Venom PS5 Skin
The Lethal Protector has a new task at hand—make your PS5 console look downright vicious. The long-tongued villain/anti-hero of the Spider-Man universe slobbers onto the scene with this purple wrap. The skin achieves full symbiosis with the PS5 and DualSense, creating an awesome aesthetic that Venom fans will undoubtedly admire every single day they see it.
9. Batman vs Joker PS5 Skin
Name a more icon rivalry. Incredible renders of The Joker and Batman don this PS5 wrap, the two about to engage in what’s sure to be a bloody brawl. Judging by Batman’s face, we’d guess this is post-Jason Todd’s murder. The Joker is as gleeful as always to be squaring off against Gotham’s protector. The accompanying DualSense skins shrink the design a little to feature both Batman and The Joker locked in a never-ending battle.
8. Miles Morales PS5 Skin
Spider-Man has made quite a splash in the PlayStation ecosystem. While this skin depicts his protege, Miles Morales, and not the wallcrawler himself, it’s difficult to deny just how cool this design is. The graffiti-inspired art style is quite fitting for Miles, and it’s done so well to look as if it’s an official cover of a Miles Morales comic book. Miles’ contrasting colors really stand out, especially on the accompanying DualSense skins.
7. Ratchet and Clank PS5 Skin
Another PlayStation favorite, Ratchet and Clank has been around since the era of the PS2. It was the PS5 release, Rift Apart, that elevated the series using the power of the console’s SSD. This skin kind of captures that upgrade with its dual worlds, with Ratchet ready for battle on one and newcomer Rivet joining the fray with her own perils. The contrast of the two dimensions makes for a wonderful piece of art that belongs on any PS5 console.
6. Reimagined PS2 Retor PS5 Skin
Do our eyes deceive us, or is that a PS2 playing Horizon: Forbidden West? Oh, of course, it’s a PS5, but with this retro skin, it’s hard to tell. The classic PS2 logo is the focal point of this PS5 wrap, but the black really helps sell the design. That it carries over to the DualSense is a great touch, giving the controller the appearance of its predecessor, the DualShock controller.
5. Metal Gear Solid PS5 Skin
The Metal Gear Solid series got its start in PlayStation’s ecosystem, so it’s only fitting that the patriarch of the Snake family is featured on a legacy skin for the PS5. This wrap captures the iconic art style of the series, paying tribute to Punished Snake in a remarkable portrait. The console features two sides, one adding a bit more color. The DualSense skin is a very simple rendition, with the visual of Snake cutting down the middle of the control for dramatic effect.
4. Kingdom Hearts PS5 Skin
The Kingdom Hearts series has some breathtaking visuals as Disney and Square put their heads together for a winding tale of light and darkness. This PS5 console wrap seems to capture that struggle almost perfectly, with a pair of images using black and white to represent the two sides of the fight. Sora wields his iconic keyblade and prepares for the fight ahead, ready for whatever dangers await in the darkness.
3. The Last of Us Part II PS5 Skin
You can’t really talk about the PlayStation ecosystem and not mention The Last of Us, so it’s fitting to have this The Last of Us Part II skin adorning your PS5. The phenomenal artwork depicts Joel and Ellie in an art style that captures the drama of Naughty Dogs’ series. The DualSense skins divide the pair, with Joel on one controller and Ellie on another, almost as if to signify the separation caused by Joel’s big decision in The Last of Us.
2. Resident Evil Umbrella Corps PS5 Skin
Another long-running series that got its start on the PS1, Resident Evil is one of gaming’s greatest franchises. This PS5 wrap puts the company responsible for the initial outbreak that devastated Raccoon City front and center, the red and white of Umbrella’s logo immediately drawing attention. The entire design is quite fun, with blood splatter coating the console and accompanying DualSense skin.
1. Final Fantasy VII Remake PS5 Skin
Final Fantasy VII was a crucial part of the PS1’s lifespan, and its remake deserves some recognition on the PS5. This skin features both Cloud and Sephiroth, dramatically posed with the Mako Reactor between them. Cloud wields his iconic Buster Sword while Sephiroth stands as the legendary One-Winged Angel. The DualSense skin goes a different route and features Tifa in a vibrant design.
