This black PS5 throws some serious shade at Sony

It's no secret that gamers have been yearning to see the release of an all-black PS5. The console's current design has proved divisive to say the least, with the white-and-black machine memed to oblivion when first revealed last summer. Now, Dbrand has released black faceplates for the console – and the tech accessory company couldn't have been sassier about it.

Dbrand's Darkplates are simple, plastic covers that can attach to your PlayStation and turn those infamous white sides black. If you've been lucky enough to get hold of Sony's latest (here's where to buy a PS5) but would prefer it to look a little less like a Stormtrooper, this could be the best way to help the machine properly join the dark side.
