PS5 Third-Party Face Plates Are Already Available To Preorder

The PlayStation 5 comes in a sleek duotone design with white fins jutting up from the black center. Sony hasn’t officially announced any plans for other colors or faceplate designs, but a third party has already started selling preorders for a handful of other faceplate colors and patterns.

The site Platestation 5 is offering five faceplate designs: cherry red, indigo blue, chromatic, jungle camo, and a limited-edition matte black. Each is priced at $40, including the limited-edition version, and the site says it’s aiming to ship within two weeks of the PS5 launch to assure they arrive close to your new console.

Be advised, we haven’t sampled these faceplates ourselves, so we can’t vouch for their quality or fit. If you want to take a gamble, though, read up on the store refund policy just in case.

A recent teardown video showed how easily the plates could be removed, which suggests swappable faceplates will be relatively easy. Custom faceplates were a feature of the original Xbox 360.

PlayStation 5 launches on November 12, and we’ve gotten a console in-hand so you can view the box–complete with banana and egg for scale.
