The PlayStation 5’s white outer shell can be easily removed from the console. It’s yet to be officially confirmed, but the theory is that we’ll be able to replace the default casing with different coloured or patterned faceplates in the future. We wouldn’t be surprised to see Sony flogging all kinds of custom panels down the line, but a third party outfit looks to have beaten them to the punch.
PlateStation 5 is a website offering a handful of alternate colour faceplates for your PS5, and its products are available to pre-order and purchase right now. If you’re not a fan of the white casing, you can go here and select from a few different options, shown off with some 3D renders displaying the console equipped with various colours. At the time of writing, you can choose from red, blue, camo, chrome, and of course, black. They’re all available in standard and digital edition sizes, too.
The custom faceplates will set you back $40, but we’re sure plenty of people will pay up to have a PS5 in their favourite colour. There’s no guarantee that Sony will offer official variations, so PlateStation 5 is your best bet for now.
Having said that, the company is extremely new, set up days ago, so there’s no track record to speak of. We’d be careful about splashing cash at this stage, but if the business follows through with decent products, it could be a good option.
Anyway, what do you think of these unofficial custom faceplates? Which colour would you want to put on your PS5? Are you happy with white, or will you be forking out for a different style? Give us your thoughts in the comments section below.

This looks good, I hope sony make official colored version though, I want psone classic faceplate
I like the white, and it matches my furniture thankfully, but the ability to customise is a good thing. Not sure I would trust a company to get the exact dimensions and shape correct before release though – I mean, have they actually managed to get their hands on a faceplate from a factory or something? Wouldn’t surprise me, but also wouldn’t risk it pre release.
I want a Zelda themed faceplate on one side and a Halo themed on the other. This way it will scream “PlayStation”
Not sure why they chose to display the new colours against a background of the same colour… they really don’t stand out.
I’m sure there will be some good options eventually, but the 3D renders of these (as opposed to physical photos) and awful eye for design with the matching backgrounds make me think this probably isn’t the company to go for. Will wait and see. Would rather pay a slight premium for a well made and finished replacement.
I imagine Sony will announce something about official ones at some point. We havent had our weekly drip of information yet. Although im more interested in them confirming how to get the camera adaptor to be honest.
I am almost certain that interchangeable face plates was Sony’s plan from the beginning. I am calling it now they will sell themed controllers bundled with themed faceplates. Just you wait
Question is whether they will sell special editions separately, or lock them behind a PS5 purchase. I hope it’s the former, they’d be stupid not to sell them separately, but I can see some exclusive face plates that are only available if you buy a new system.
I’d be interested why you need to have your ps5 in camo. Do you intend to play it while hunting and don’t want to spook your prey? Don’t you need a camo tv then too? Doesn’t your white dualsense need to be covered by a camo blanket because its not in camo? So many questions.
@Fred_Red I’d say that’s harsh just because it’s a go daddy website. Small businesses need to start somewhere. Plus you can check out with PayPal so you are protected.
Here’s hoping Sony do official ones soon enough so those of us who want a black console can get one.
If the only way to get an Azur Lane faceplate is to go unofficial, I’m okay with that.
