The Darkplate also has an optional skin for the glossy black middle area of the PS5, in case you wish to customize its color or simply make it less of a breeding place for finger prints. Beyond the matte black choice, there appear yellow and white skins as well as patterns like “robotic camouflage” and “redcode.”.
Transforming your PS5 to matte black will not be especially low-cost and might not be all that fast. The PS5 Digital Edition variation of the plates, meanwhile, hasnt yet been put on sale at all.

Its fair to say the PlayStation 5s substantial, two-tone industrial style is not for everybody, and now Dbrand states it has an option. The business best understood for its custom-made phone skins and cases has actually put “Darkplates” on sale, with the guarantee that the precisely carved slabs of plastic will turn your PS5 into a murdered-out matte-black hunk of hardware.
This isnt simply an unofficial device– Dbrand is actively encouraging Sony to sue it for putting the item out. The background there is that a small company, initially called PlateStation5 then CustomizeMyPlates, was forced to cancel and refund orders for a similar item in 2015 following legal action from Sony. Now Dbrands order page reads “Go ahead, sue us” at the top.
The goading doesnt stop there. Dbrands Darkplate includes a texture rather inspired by the PlayStation button icons microtexture found on the PS5 and its controller. The company explains it as “a familiar-but-legally-distinct apocalyptic spin on the timeless PlayStation button shapes.”
