We already know that the faceplates of PS5 are removable and Sony does not want to have custom faceplate manufacturers at all.
Dbrand, PS5 custom faceplate manufacturer challenges Sony to sue them
You know some time ago, Sony put a legal barrier to Custom PS5 faceplate manufacturers. The company told the manufacturers to stop developing custom faceplates. However, one company did not listen to Sony at all. In fact, the company eventually challenges Sony to just sue them. Yes, you heard it right Dbrand another custom faceplate manufacturer for PS5 wants Sony to sue them.
What makes Dbrand so aggressive against Sony is still a mystery. But we think that Dbrand already finished manufacturing their custom faceplates, which you can find pictures of it below. Dbrand, the custom faceplate manufacturer for PS5 also made a long announcement about this situation. You can also read the announcement just below:
”As the title of this post suggests, we’re now the global leaders in PS5 Faceplates. Sue us, Sony. This project has been in the works since just before we told you not to buy PlayStation 5 skins. Spoiler alert: that’s the reason not to buy a PS5.
After moving a few more chess pieces through four dimensions, we added a new production line to our plastic injection moulding facility and got to work. The skills we’ve refined through the past few years of developing the Grip Case has uniquely positioned our organization to create OEM-grade Faceplates: ones with all of the precision, attention to detail, and needlessly elaborate packaging that you’ve come to expect from dbrand.
We’ll be entering mass production on PS5 Faceplates by year’s end. However, we won’t be accepting orders until we have stock at our Toronto HQ, ready to ship. If CD Projekt RED has taught us anything, it’s that selling products before they’re finished is a bad idea.
If you’re among the millions of humans who didn’t get a PS5 for Christmas, stay calm when you see these go out-of-stock. We anticipate that the demand will outpace supply at launch. But rest assured Faceplates will be a permanent fixture in our portfolio.
On the other hand, if you’re among the millions of scalpers hoping to differentiate their overpriced PS5 with a custom faceplate. We encourage you to sign up for the launch notification here. That’s it from us. Congratulations on surviving 2020. We’ll try harder in 2021.”
This is the end of the announcement of Dbrand on Reddit. You can also check out the discussion by clicking here. Maybe this attempt of Dbrand will just encourage other faceplate manufacturers in the future. We will have to wait and see.
