PlateStation has refunded all orders because Sony is threatening legal action against the company
Would you pay $40 to change the look of your console?
UPDATE 11/2/2020: Well, all good things must come to an end, some before they ever have the chance to launch. Such is the case here, with Sony now threatening legal action against the custom plate maker. PlateStation is refunding all orders for its custom PlayStation 5 covers. It is still selling its custom PS5 skins.
The PS5 isn’t even out yet, and there’s already a company out there making custom plates to change the bright white color presented on the console.
Called PlateStation (and not connected to Sony or PlayStation in any way), these plates will directly replace the current plate you find on the PlayStation 5 console. I can’t find anywhere on the site where it tells what these plates are made of, but they currently come in five pretty sweet colorways: Chromatic, Cherry Red, Camo, Limited Edition Matte Black, and Indigo Blue.
As you can see in the video below, the PlayStation 5 can be broken down relatively easily, making the switch to these new plates pretty straightforward.
Each of these replacements from PlateStation will set you back $39.99, which honestly, doesn’t seem terrible if you are trying to completely revamp the look of your bright-white console. The company notes that the custom plates will be shipped on or before November 12.
