The PlayStation 5 only comes in one color. White. But if that’s not to your liking, there is a company called PlateStation that makes a family of colored plates to help you customize your console. However, that come’s at a bit of a cost.

Using these plates, you are able to tint your PS5 in the following colors:

  • Cherry red
  • Chromatic silver
  • Black
  • Blue
  • Camo

To install them, all you have to do is remove the existing white plates (they just pop off) on your PlayStation 5. Then, snap on the replacement plates.

These plates are some of the first customization options that you can get for the brand new Sony PlayStation 5. The fact that this is coming so soon is actually no surprise. First of all, there has been a lot of criticism about the design. Also, memes making fun of how the PlayStation 5 looks are in no short supply. Its asymmetrical and large, and well, people don’t like that. Sony has always had problems designing consoles when it comes to the aesthetic. Remember the PS3 grill? Yeah. Me too.

I wouldn’t exactly call white a popular color right now, either. Check out this link to see all PlateStation’s covers. You can get the for the ridiculously high price of $40.

Perfectly Priced For PlayStation Fans

Whoa whoa whoa. The PlayStation 5 is great and all, but let’s slow down a minute. Hold the phone. Wait. $40 for a tiny, thin, mass-produced, injection-molded piece of plastic? Well, I guess it’s ok, I mean, you have to pay for the brand. All that research and dev… wait a minute. This is not a Sony product? Its third party? So, you mean to tell me, there is no reason at all for the absurd price? So what you are saying is.. the price is not high because Sony has to pad in the development costs of the PS4? So basically, what you mean is.. this PlateStation company just has a 95% profit margin. Ok, cool. Just making that clear.
