PlayStation Announces LeBron James PS5 Accessories
Basketball legend LeBron James, known for his skills on the court and his influential presence off it, is set to venture into the world of gaming with his own line of PlayStation accessories. This exciting collaboration between James and Sony includes a specially designed controller and faceplate for the popular PlayStation gaming console, both of which bear the imprint of James’ creative input.
Sony recently unveiled these unique accessories on the official PlayStation Blog, generating a buzz among gaming enthusiasts and fans of LeBron James alike. The PlayStation 5 console cover and DualSense pad feature vibrant graffiti-style artwork, adorned with the empowering slogan, “Nothing is given. Everything is earned.” Additionally, the designs incorporate various words and symbols that hold significance for both James and the PlayStation brand, further emphasizing the collaborative nature of this project.
The console cover, priced at $64.99, will be exclusively available in the United States through PlayStation’s official website. Pre-orders for this limited-edition item will commence on June 29, with the official release slated for July 27. Notably, the price represents a $10 premium compared to standard faceplates that lack the unique designs and customization options found in James’ line.
Meanwhile, the custom-designed DualSense pad will enjoy a wider distribution, being sold in several countries including the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Italy, and Benelux. Priced at $79.99/€79.99/£69.99/$99.99 CAD, this modified controller boasts the same striking graffiti motifs and the inspiring catchphrase associated with James. As with the console cover, pre-orders for the DualSense pad will open on June 29 via the PlayStation website, and the product will officially launch on July 27.
LeBron James’ foray into PlayStation accessories is a result of his association with PlayStation Playmakers, a community of passionate gamers, creators, athletes, artists, and entertainers who champion the power of play. James announced his involvement with PlayStation Playmakers on Twitter back in February, joining a diverse group that includes other notable figures such as Finn Wolfhard from Stranger Things, King Bach the comedian, professional BMX athlete Nigel Sylvester, WNBA All-Rookie NaLyssa Smith, and NFL stars Ja’Marr Chase and CeeDee Lamb, among others. Together, this collective is showcasing the profound impact that gaming and interactive experiences can have on individuals from various fields and backgrounds.
With LeBron James lending his creativity and influence to the world of PlayStation accessories, fans can look forward to a unique and inspiring gaming experience that blends the excitement of basketball with the immersive world of gaming.
