Preorders for PlayStation's limited-edition Marvel's Spider-Man 2 PS5 console, DualSense controller, and console covers went live last week. Unsurprisingly, all three of the stylish PlayStation products proved to be very popular, much like the Collector's Edition of the game itself, which quickly sold out when Marvel's Spider-Man 2 preorders became available in June. The Spidey gear has gone in and out of stock, but right now you can still preorder the special-edition PS5 console and matching DualSense controller. The console covers, on the other hand, sold out fast and are difficult to secure for a reasonable price.
The console and accessories release September 1, well before Marvel's Spider-Man 2's October 20 launch. Featuring Peter Parker, Miles Morales, and a whole suite of supervillains (including the fan-favorite Venom), the sequel is looking to improve upon everything that made the original such as hit. For details on the various editions and bonuses up for grabs, check out our Marvel's Spider-Man 2 preorder guide.
The Marvel's Spider-Man 2 Limited Edition Bundle gets you everything, as it pulls together a PS5 with the Spider-Man 2 faceplate, a Spider-Man 2 controller, and a digital copy of the upcoming game.
PS5 bundles with games typically cost $560, but this particular one is going for $600. Every major retailer except for Amazon still has preorders available, though GameStop is only taking orders in stores.
Don’t want to mess around with swapping out your faceplate? You can still join in on the web-slinging fun by picking up the Marvel's Spider-Man 2 DualSense controller. This is the traditional DualSense with a black and red color scheme. That means it offers adaptive triggers, haptic feedback, and everything else that makes the DualSense one of the most technologically advanced controllers around.
This special-edition controller costs $80. At this time, preorders are still available at multiple major retailers, including Best Buy. Amazon and GameStop are currently sold out.
If you already own a PS5, there’s no reason to spring for the above bundle. Instead, you can snag a Spider-Man 2 faceplate--if you can find one. These are available for the standard PS5 and digital edition. Featuring an aggressive front plate with a black and red design, along with a white Spider-Man logo, it’s arguably the best official PS5 faceplate yet. The back plate, meanwhile, is a standard black.
The faceplate costs $65, slightly more than a standard faceplate. It's unclear if retailers will receive additional stock closer to launch. As of now, preorders are sold out.
While preorders are open today, none of these items are expected to start shipping until September 1. So if all the units sell out before you get a chance to reserve one, there’s a good possibility a new shipment will arrive in the coming months--so keep your eyes peeled for restocks at your favorite retailers.
