PS5: Third-Party Company Already Selling Custom Faceplates

The PlayStation 5's faceplates will be removable, and while Sony has yet to announce any plans to release official variations of the standard white color, a third-party company has already created and put some up for pre-order that are set to ship on or before PS5's release date of November 12, 2020. PlateStation 5, who is “not affiliated in any way with Sony, PlayStation, or the PlayStation 5 brand,” is offering five new faceplate options for new PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition owners, including Cherry Red, Chromatic, Indigo Blue, Jungle Camo, and Limited Edition V1 Matte Black. [widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”albumSlug=platestation-5-unofficial-ps5-and-ps5-digital-edition-faceplates&captions=true”] Each faceplate retails for $39.99, and the team behind PlateStation 5 has said that this site was “born out of the single desire to create a Matte Black custom faceplate, simply because we believes it was what the PS5 community deserved.” As they were building it out, the community and their partnering manufactures inspired them to make the other options as well. Sony gave us our best look at the removable faceplates with its PS5 teardown video, and this new aspect of the PS5 have many wondering if/when Sony will offer other official options and what this will mean for limited edition consoles. [ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/10/09/biggest-ps5-teardown-takeaways-next-gen-console-watch”] The PlayStation 5 will be released on November 12, 2020, and will launch alongside such games as Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Demon's Souls, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, and much more.
