Dbrand reveals new PS5 Darkplates days after pulling the originals

Bruh they circumsized the ps5

ID: hh8cumw

How to make your brand new PS5 look like a chinese knock-off console that only plays Atari/NES emulators for just $70!

3 : Anonymous2021/10/19 03:28 ID: hh6xfgq

$60?!?! Lmao fuck that

ID: hh71le0

$70 once they officially launch too it seems

ID: hh72g8f

Yeah lmao that is not happening. I’ll wait for the Chinese/AliExpress knockoffs that are exactly the same, lawsuit proof through obscure companies, and probably branded with way cooler designs

ID: hh87lkz

You can get Aliexpress ones for $10-$25.

Lol design is truly subjective. Everyone saying they're ugly but I love the rounded corners matching the middle section.

ID: hha6szi

Same. I like the more compact and minimal design

5 : Anonymous2021/10/19 01:09 ID: hh6gkuv

Those look awful.

ID: hh6tl74

I don’t care for the vent myself, but I have my ps5 on its side on a shelf where they won’t be terribly visible. So great to just change the colours in my case.

Definitely would say its not so good for people who have them more on display.

ID: hh7mu4u

If it’s colours you want you have a huge option on AliExpress for 1/3 the price of these.

ID: hh77163

I think it looks better, tbh. Horizontally, this doesn’t look like it just fell over like the original plates do.

Dbrand to me always came off as a cheesy company that is known cause it gets YouTubers to shill their name out. Like when youtubers hawk those shitty anonymous ear buds

ID: hh7awum


ID: hh7r10h

The audacity to even put con in their name.

ID: hh76vyi

a company that make huge markups for selling stickers.

ID: hh7cj28

That's pretty much it, they charge a massive mark up for laser cut vynil and spend a good chunk of the proceeds shilling on reddit and YouTube. This whole Sony thing actually worls out for them in terms of visibility, the press is giving them the time of day when they would normally be largely ignored, as they should, they cut vynil and charge 1000% margins for it, it's not rocket science, I can do exactly the same for almost free on any MIT fablab.

ID: hh9l30l

MKBHD fucking rimjobs them every video

7 : Anonymous2021/10/19 01:14 ID: hh6h7zd

Glad I grabbed the OG darkplates. These are horrible looking

ID: hh71ee9

Same. Don't like the look of these ones.

ID: hh7cks0

Me too, the cut look and Airvent looks horrible. I don’t think Sony forgot to put enough air flow on the machine.

ID: hh8wbjx

lol they tested it, like 5⁰C colder with airflow shells

8 : Anonymous2021/10/19 07:59 ID: hh7jfki

To me it screams like this whole "they sued us" is just attention seeking especially with the news of this new design

ID: hh8p60o

Wait till you find out what the purpose of marketing is...

9 : Anonymous2021/10/19 06:19 ID: hh7ckjf

That looks pretty terrible but kudos to anyone who wants those count me out

10 : Anonymous2021/10/19 04:00 ID: hh70r32

Looking forward to the headline in a few months that reads “Sony sues the company that dared them to sue a second time”

11 : Anonymous2021/10/19 01:20 ID: hh6hw6v

I wonder if having that vent there does anything?

ID: hh6w2g6

Id be willing to bet a lot of money that its negatively affecting the console. These things are designed to be the shape they are for a reason. Putting those vents there like that is a direct path for dirt to enter the heatsink

ID: hh7lkyz

If Gamers Nexus PS5 video is to be taken into consideration, then they even mentioned that some holes in the side plates over the vent area would probably improve the overall cooling.

ID: hh6z27n

You'd be willing to lose a lot of money then.

GNs tests already showed no sidepanels mean better temps (which is already obvious for anyone who ever built a pc) and dbrand even mentions dust filters on their post on


12 : Anonymous2021/10/19 08:55 ID: hh7n2j4

I'm still waiting for news on official side panels...

13 : Anonymous2021/10/19 10:31 ID: hh7tkif

Honestly had to click the article thinking the thumbnail was just a plate less PS5

14 : Anonymous2021/10/19 07:36 ID: hh7hz05

Ewww those look really ugly

ID: hh7yt0t

It looks like one of those cheap black market consoles that try to trick your clueless relatives into believing to buy the latest console for you on Christmas, the xStation Series 5.

EDIT: On a series note, Sony Playstation did patent the design of their plates .. in order to produce aftermarket plates the design has to change visually or it's simply not legal.

15 : Anonymous2021/10/19 01:12 ID: hh6gxbn

That looks fucking stupid

16 : Anonymous2021/10/19 07:55 ID: hh7j6j7

Wait why did they change them? Didn't they have the whole "go on, sue us" ordeal going on? Did they actually get sued?

ID: hh7z2hr

Sony didn't have a patent registered at the time, which was why they were so bold. Well now Sony does, so they had to back off.

They can't straight up copy the shape like they did. That's why this one looks different.

17 : Anonymous2021/10/19 02:36 ID: hh6r9f9

….I like them

ID: hh905j4

I could do without the fan hole but I kinda dig the smaller plates

ID: hhano24

Yeah, don't really see much wrong with them. I suspect herd mentality took over in this thread!

Far too much hate for what is essentially a better design lol.

18 : Anonymous2021/10/19 01:12 ID: hh6gwoo

They look at least unique this time and not straight copyright infringing on Sony's design.

Should probably last longer this time around

19 : Anonymous2021/10/19 05:22 ID: hh786ut

I think Sony had a reason not to put a vent opening there. I would be afraid to put new designs onto my ps5

20 : Anonymous2021/10/19 05:11 ID: hh779k2

Nice, looks awful

21 : Anonymous2021/10/19 12:02 ID: hh81e10

Get fucked I actually emailed them about a custom design like this when the original released. Glad to see it happen. Heaps cleaner than the big fins of the original. Would be perfect without the fan holes though, those are ugly af

22 : Anonymous2021/10/19 12:55 ID: hh86vfh

The price is ridiculous and clearly piggybacking off the sue me hype.

I also feel that perhaps the people who designed the ps5 might have included a vent were it necessary in the original production models. Which would have saved on plastic usage over the 700 ps5's they've made so far.

23 : Anonymous2021/10/19 18:27 ID: hh9hmeu

Looks terrible in my opinion

24 : Anonymous2021/10/19 21:10 ID: hha6cg5

Am I the only one who thinks they look good?! I mean the black one makes the console blend in more and they got rid of the ugly fins. The vent on the black one you won't barely see and why not have a bit more airflow? But still not worth those prices.

25 : Anonymous2021/10/19 06:22 ID: hh7ctm0

Holy shit

is cringe as fuck.

26 : Anonymous2021/10/19 09:38 ID: hh7pxvb

My white PS5 looks perfectly fine as it is. Having an open fan is bad as loads of dust is going to get in. It doesn't look like it even has dust filters ffs.

27 : Anonymous2021/10/19 08:29 ID: hh7lf3e

Great can't wait to see pictures of these twice a day saying "looks better in black" that totally aren't part of dbrands marketing campaign .
