Almost two months after the launch of the PS5, some of its owners are still waiting for Sony to announce their interchangeable housings to customize the look from the console. In fact, some manufacturers tried to take advantage of the situation to offer their own plates, but they were stopped by Sony with a threat of lawsuit. However, dbrand, the popular brand of skins for mobile devices, dared to challenge the legal actions of the Japanese company.
The desire for a PS5 in black
During the weekend, dbrand confirmed what will soon put on sale its interchangeable covers in matt black color. Of course, they anticipate that the stock will be limited at first; the sale will begin when they have enough units to cover the initial demand. At the moment they did not disclose prices, but said that it was possible to buy plates for both PS5 models. That is, the standard edition and the digital edition.
Also, dbrand indicates that in the future they will launch skins for DualSense. They even mention that they will offer packages that include the interchangeable covers plus vinyl stickers for the mentioned remote. In the images shared by the manufacturer we can already see a PS5 totally in black, which is the look most desired at the moment and what many consider should be the main color of the console.
dbrand is not afraid of a lawsuit from Sony
It should also be mentioned that dbrand already tried to sell skins for the PS5 cases, but canceled the reservations due to how difficult it was to place the vinyl. “You idiots can’t install them properly”they said in November. If you know the brand, you are surely also aware of its curious communication strategy. However, on their second attempt they will not sell skins
Obviously, Sony should not be happy with dbrand’s proposal. Are you afraid of facing a lawsuit? Not at all: “We encourage you to try”, responded when questioned on the subject on Twitter. It seems, then, that they found a way to avoid a legal battle. Several weeks ago, Sony forced PlateStation to change its name and suspend case sales for infringing on its intellectual property, thus setting a precedent for other companies seeking to do so. It will be interesting to see what happens to dbrand, as it is not just any manufacturer.
