Excitement was palpable at the San Diego Comic-Con as Insomniac and Sony PlayStation unveiled a limited edition special Marvel's Spider-Man 2 PS5 console.

The standout feature of this special edition console is its design, inspired by the ominous Symbiote lurking in the shadows of Marvel's Spider-Man 2.

Andrea Perez, Senior Vice President of Brand, Product & Services Marketing at PlayStation, emphasized that the menacing presence of Venom and the Symbiote would pose a formidable challenge for the two Spider-Man protagonists in the game.

Jacinda Chew, Senior Art Director at Insomniac Games, described the design as being inspired by the Symbiote, which seems to have taken over the console and controller, but hints of its red hues remain.

"This representation symbolizes the various ways players will experience the Symbiote takeover in Marvel's Spider-Man 2," said Chew, as quoted in the official PlayStation blog on Sunday, July 23, 2023.

The limited edition PS5 console will be sold as a bundle, including the wireless DualSense controller and a voucher for the digital copy of the Marvel's Spider-Man 2 Standard Edition.

For those who already own a PS5, Sony is offering the option to purchase the cover for the limited edition Marvel's Spider-Man 2 PS5 console and the cover for the PS5 Digital Edition separately.

Furthermore, Sony will sell the special edition DualSense Wireless Controller for Marvel's Spider-Man 2 separately, catering to existing PS5 owners.

Pre-orders for the limited edition PS5 console will begin on July 28 in the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Australia, and Portugal.

Sony also revealed that the PS5 Spider-Man edition console will have a limited release in select countries through chosen retailers. However, its availability in Indonesia remains uncertain.

As for the products, they will be officially released on September 1, 2023, just ahead of the Marvel's Spider-Man 2 game launch.
