When will Sony start making their own custom colored PS5 faceplates? I really want mine in black.

I know that third party websites sell them. I've seen videos on YouTube that the faceplates from Wish & Aliexpress are bad quality and bad color quality.

no one knows.

The other guys clearly misunderstood your question as you’re obviously asking for some inside information on a potential new product for Sony, how foolish of them.

I just asked my uncle who’s the head honcho of PlayStation when they’re going to release official custom skins and he told me “soonish”

Hope that helps

I wonder if he knows my uncle. He works at Nintendo.

Imma call BS on that story.


We all know Sony say "soon"

Your uncles just pulling your leg.

I got mine from a local shop, it is actually pretty good quality and looks amazing next to my xbox. PIC. My advice is look through ebay and find one from a trustworthy seller and give a shot.

Dbrand is the same quality as original, go for that if you can't wait

ID: hdcy604

+1 for dbrand, my dark plates don’t feel any different in quality to the original plates….

Jesus, just looked it up, 70$ for two piece's of plastic.

How much do you think PlayStation ones would be lol

ID: hdbu3uq

its pricey or go for the cheap ones with lower quality on Wish

ID: hdfk6u2

I paid 60 with a discount

ID: hdgjmrx

Two sides and a centre transfer … they do look bloody good.

ID: hdgrdcq

I bought those the moment they became available. Best $60 I've ever spent to not have to look a the shitty white anymore.

They could have made so much additional money with that, don't understand why they don't sell those plates. In the mean time i got used to the white color, so i don't want to change it anymore.

Painted mine day one with black fusion paint. Haven’t had any problems or smells. $5. Just make sure you do multiple thin passes over the course of a few hours and not one thick layer.

Bought black plates off amazon I'm very happy with them

ID: hdc47pi

Got mine from Amazon as well, was ~25€. Great color (black) and quality, can't complain.

Link? I’m interested

Search on Amazon, they will show up...

Why do that when they can just sell you a whole other PS5?

10 : Anonymous2021/09/18 12:50 ID: hdbr2x5

Here's my all black PS5. Got the plate for $35 from Amazon. Excellent build quality and dbrand matte black front skin.

my uncle works for sony he says they should be out next month

PS5 should maintain the white aesthetic. It’s branding. It’s like white AirPods. Stay the course.

Moreover, white is better as you can’t see all of the dust particles on it. Too many black consoles. Looking at my Series X, which I do think looks cool, you can see the dust particles all over it due to static electricity.

They could also do grey

Grey needs to make a comeback. Or do what N64 did and do transparent consoles.

I'm in the UK and got some very good quality ones off of Amazon for about 30 quid. Very happy with them.

Midnight black face plates with black dualsense and PS5 red power indicator lights (instead of white) would look sick

Got mine from AliExpress, they are very good quality.

Dbrand sells them and their top quality, But I would like mines with the PS logo on it and dbrand can't do that because legal reasons

17 : Anonymous2021/09/18 10:46 ID: hdbfrct

Amazon, all black PS5.

Dbrand is the best...problem is they take a while to ship. They only produce em in in batches

Hold on, let me call my good friend John Sony real quick

Just buy a can of spray paint and do it yourself. I did

21 : Anonymous2021/09/18 09:07 ID: hdb8rcz

I think FlamingToast plates are good quality (from what I’ve heard)

Or maybe it’s dbrand

One of the two

They make decals, not faceplates.

I painted mine black with Plasti Dip spray. Black is way better than white.

Going by when they launched the faceplates on ps4, then we'll likely see them in November of 2023.

Ordered mine from vgfgamers.com. Solid set of plates!

I wish someone sold a glossy black plate, like my original PS3, retro style

27 : Anonymous2021/09/19 08:59 ID: hdfxq9n

$10 in China

When Sony thinks they could make a profit selling them, that's when

29 : Anonymous2021/09/19 12:56 ID: hdghlf0

I'm still holding on hope that some collector's editions will have plates, specifically for Gow. Although i don't think it's hard to find plates somewhere else?

31 : Anonymous2021/09/19 14:30 ID: hdgstxq

I bought the dark plates from dbrand. They’re better quality than the one plates IMO

32 : Anonymous2021/09/18 13:42 ID: hdbx1bk

Check NASCompares YT channel, he's got it all black and more. In some of "QA" type of video (recent one) he linked where to buy all of the custom parts he has. I don't know about quality, I'm not into that, couldn't care less about a console casing.

Same, I would love a black PS5 with red lights, and when you turn it on instead of beep you get Darth Vader breathing
