If you’re hoping to be able to customize your new PS5 with a fancy custom mask, you might have to wait for Sony’s official solution. One company that supplied replacement PS5 panels in different colors canceled its order after threatened to sue. Talking to VGC, a representative for Customize My Plates – known as PlateStation5 until a few days ago – confirmed that they are canceling all disc orders. It cites Sony’s legal threats as the reason behind both its name change, which Sony claims has infringed its own trademark, as well as its cancellation.
“… Sony attorneys told us that is their opinion [that] Sony̵7;s intellectual property extends to glass panels and if we continue to sell and distribute them in any country, we will have to appear in court, “the representative said.
It will give up on the custom dashboard business, but it’s likely that Customize My Plates will offer plate replacement products in the future. Instead, it now offers the console and console, which are vinyl sheets that you can stick to the console itself. They don’t replace existing glass panels as the original components would have, and they’re a bit cheaper.
Due to how easy it is to remove the sides of the glass (without tools to do so), Sony will most likely offer its own alternative products in different colors. It will definitely be easier than giving completely different colors to consoles, something Sony has done in the past. The Xbox 360’s first iteration also features a replaceable mask. We’re sure many people want to create camo for their PS5, but they may not find it later.
The PS5 launches on November 12th. As of now, it’s only available in white, as is the DualSense controller. Check out or the PS5 pre-order guide for information on availability on both the console and its accessories.
