LeBron James and PlayStation announced a partnership to create a limited-edition PlayStation 5 console cover and DualSense wireless controller.
The console will have a limited release in a few nations around the world and will have components designed with James and his love of gaming in mind.
The console contains multiple crown logos along with the phrases "Nothing Is Given, Everything Is Earned" and "Chosen Ones".
LeBron was hyped and excited to announce this partnership with PlayStation; he said it was crazy to create something like this.
“It’s still crazy to think a kid from Akron who grew up playing games is getting to create something like this. Designing a console cover and controller with PlayStation that gives a nod to my I Promise students and where we come from is a pretty cool thing." said LeBron.
He continued by saying, "I hope it’s something that continues to inspire everyone who touches it, and that they have a little fun finding meaning in every detail.”
A new project named PlayStation Playmakers is launched, which is a group of pop culture icons from diverse fields. LeBron is one of them, along with others like the pro BMX rider Nigel Sylvester, the country singer Jimmie Allen, and actor and comedian King Bach.
The consoles will be made available later this year. However an exact date has not been announced yet, it may be released around October or November 2023.
