The Sony PlayStation 5 game console currently has a white panel. If you want an all-black PS5, the well-known skin company Dbrand just announced its own PlayStation 5 panels, which are matte black.
No price details are currently available. Dbrand said that they will only accept orders when there is sufficient inventory at the Toronto headquarters. They shared that the panel will start mass production at the end of this year and will be available in 2021. They provide two versions, covering a digital version and a CD-ROM version.
If you want to be the first to know when you can place an order, you can put your details here. Dbrand also added that once the panel can be purchased, they will provide an optional bundle that includes the Middle + Controller appearance.
Before the PS5 was launched on the global market, the company had previously accepted orders for its custom PS5 appearance. Unfortunately, they cancelled all pre-orders because they were not satisfied with the final appearance of the skinned PS5 because the white color is still showing.
It is also worth pointing out that a British company previously tried to sell custom PS5 panels online, but Sony sued them for trademark infringement. Obviously, they think this will not be a problem, because Sony only has patents pending on the panel. Facts have proved that Sony’s intellectual property rights have been extended to the panels themselves. If Sony continues to sell them, Sony will take the custom panel company to court.
When asked if Dbrand is worried about potential legal issues with Sony, the famous Dbrand robot replied “we encourage them to try.” Another person also asked Dbrand what was their plan not to sue, and they answered “Sony, good try”.
We also want to know how Dbrand circumvents intellectual property issues. What we do know is that they do not have a PS5 logo, and may have slightly changed in design to distinguish them from Sony’s printing plates.
At present, PS5 is still difficult to buy, Sony did not even replenish inventory when it was officially released in Malaysia. To recap, the PS5 digital version is priced at RM1,869, and the Ultra HD Blu-ray optical drive version is priced at RM2,299.[ SOURCE ]
