What an exciting time for PlayStation gamers as the Insomniac team has just wrapped up a captivating panel at San Diego Comic-Con with some fantastic new reveals from Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. This includes a first look at the PS5 console: Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Limited Edition Bundle, featuring a custom PS5 console skin skin and matching DualSense wireless controller.
We were excited to introduce these impressive skins to our fans today because of how they capture the look and feel of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. The threat of Venom and the symbiote will be one of the most formidable challenges our two Spider-Men will face in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. That’s why we wanted to reflect the intensity of the symbiote and its transformative ability and power with a takeover skin for the PS5 console and DualSense wireless controller.
The PS5 cover shows the tendrils of the symbiote aggressively approaching the Spider-Man icon, threatening to consume the last bit of the remaining glowing red. The symbiote has been fully attached to the back of the PS5 console with Spider-Man’s iconic white icon of Insomniac’s advanced suit on display. On the DualSense wireless controller, you can see a larger part of the controller taken over by the symbiote design.
It’s been great collaborating with the teams at Insomniac Games and Marvel on this new look for the PS5 console and DualSense controller. Here’s Senior Art Director Jacinda Chew sharing her thoughts behind the design inspiration:
“The design was inspired by the in-game symbiote taking over console and controller, but you can still see some of the underlying red under the tendrils. This represents the various ways players will experience the symbiote takeover in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. It’s a constant tug-of-war for dominance, whether internal or external, and the outcome is not certain.”

We recognize the importance of the symbiote, so we hope gamers can feel the inspiration behind this stunning design while playing Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. With Tempest 3D Audiotech on the PS5 console, you can identify the sounds of bio-electric powers, dangerous enemy attacks, and the bustling traffic of Marvel’s New York. While traveling through different parts of the city, the PS5 console’s ultra-high-speed SSD allows you to experience almost instant character switching between Peter Parker and Miles Morales. And with the DualSense wireless controller, you’ll feel the swinging action with adaptive triggers, while haptic feedback provides responsive vibrations as you experience Peter Parker’s new symbiote abilities and Miles Morales’ evolved bioelectric abilities.
The PS5 Console: Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Limited Edition Bundle includes a limited edition PS5 console, a limited edition DualSense wireless controller, and a coupon for a digital copy of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Standard Edition.
