What an exciting time for PlayStation gamers, as the Insomniac team just wrapped up a gripping 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, which includes a custom PS5 console cover design and matching DualSense wireless controller.
We were thrilled to present these awesome designs 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 ability to transform and power with a takeover design for the PS5 console and the DualSense wireless controller.
The front cover of the PS5 shows the symbiote tendrils aggressively closing in on the Spider-Man icon, threatening to consume the last remaining bit of red shining through. The symbiote has completely bonded to the back of the PS5 console with the iconic white Spider-Man icon of Insomniac’s advanced suit on display. On the DualSense wireless controller, you can see more of the controller supported by the symbiote design.
Working with the teams at Insomniac Games and Marvel on this new look for the PS5 console and DualSense controller has been fantastic. Here’s Senior Art Director Jacinda Chew, sharing her thoughts on design inspiration:
“The design was inspired by the game’s symbiote taking over the console and controller, but you can still see some of the underlying red under the tendrils. This represents the different ways players will experience the symbiote’s takeover in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. It’s a constant push for dominance, whether internal or external, and the outcome is uncertain.

We recognize the importance of the symbiote, so we hope players can feel the inspiration behind this stunning design while playing Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. With the PS5 console’s Tempest 3D audio technology, you can identify the sounds of Marvel’s New York’s bioelectric powers, dangerous enemy attacks, and bustling traffic. As you travel to different parts of the city, the PS5 console’s super-fast SSD allows you to experience near-instant character switching between Peter Parker and Miles Morales. And with the DualSense wireless controller, you’ll feel the swinging action of the web using adaptive triggers, while haptic feedback provides responsive vibrations as you experience Peter Parker’s new symbiote abilities and Miles Morales’ evolved bioelectric skills.
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 voucher for a digital copy of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Standard Edition.
