PlateStation 5 offers several colors and designs for the PS5 faceplates

PlateStation 5 is the third party seller for PS5 custom faceplates. Sony’s console has a white outer case, and fans speculate that it will be easily removable. The PS5’s official teardown video also confirms this:

Accordingly, fans can replace the white case with custom cases based on their style and preference.

The PS4 was available in Jet Black, Glacier White, Gold and Silver color variants and it will be no surprise if Sony itself releases the PS5 in other colors. However, Platestation 5 is already offering some unique designs.

As for now, there are five color options:

  • Matte Black
  • Cherry Red
  • Chromatic
  • Indigo Blue
  • Jungle Camo

The Mattle Black custom faceplate is a limited edition. All the color variants are certainly more attractive than standard color options like white, gold and silver.

PlateStation 5 believes “Custom has no limits”

PlateStation 5 was born out of the single desire to create a matte black custom faceplate, because the producers believed that the community deserved it. However, the partnering manufacturers have inspired PlateStation 5 to create even more options for the PS5. This initiative by the seller also fits its motto, “Custom has no limits”.

The PS5 has not even released officially, and a lot of fans might not trust a third party seller with the console’s dimensions and size. Also, Sony could release its own custom faceplates soon, and loyal customers will prefer Sony’s products over PlateStation5.
