Like the proverbial Model T, the PlayStation 5 will launch in any color you like, as long as it’s white. If that doesn’t match your decor or taste, a company called PlateStation has unveiled a series of third-party colored plates to make your console look a little different.
You can tint your PlayStation 5 in chromatic silver, cherry red, black, blue, or jungle camo. To install them, you presumably pop off the PS5’s existing white plates, as shown in this PlayStation 5 teardown video — much as you’d do to upgrade storage — and pop on the replacement plates. Note that the product is not associated in any way with the Sony or PlayStation brands.
#PlayStation5 Custom Plates

These appear to be some of the first of what will no doubt be many customization options for the PlayStation 5. That’s especially likely given the general criticism and memes of its large and asymmetrical design and the fact that many folks would prefer a color other than white. You can see all of PlateStation’s covers here — they’re now up for pre-order at $40 with a 10-day return policy.
