The website launched last week as PlateStation5.com and was offering unofficial PS5 shells in a variety of colors and patterns for $ 39.99. However, after just one day, the company was contacted by Sony’s lawyers stating that the name had to be changed due to trademark infringement. Speaking to VGC, a company representative said he was hoping the switch to CustomizeMyPlates would make everyone happy.
Unfortunately, Sony eventually discovered that making unofficial seashells was completely against their intellectual property rights. CustomizeMyPlates said, “But then Sony attorneys told us it was their opinion that Sony’s intellectual property had expanded to include the building blocks and that if we continued to sell and distribute them in any country we would end up in court. ”
The company had hoped to be able to deliver the faceplates to customers two weeks before the launch of PS5. Now they have decided to stop production and refund all purchases. The company said it will focus on developing other legal console skins and accessories instead.
Last month’s official PlayStation 5 teardown video showed how the two faceplates could easily be detached from either side of the console. Sony hasn’t announced any plans for interchangeable shells yet, but obviously we’ll have to wait for an unofficial product before unofficial or third-party brands can sell their own shells.
The PlayStation 5 will be available from November 12th. The release of PS5 accessories like the new DualSense controller, new camera, and new headset is likely to come out earlier than the console, possibly even later this week. We have our first impressions of the innovative new DualSense as well as the pre-installed start title Astro’s Playroom. If you get an additional $ 40 thanks to a canceled pre-order for the faceplate, you can now pick up a full year of PlayStation Plus at half price and gain access to the PlayStation Plus collection.
