Ever since the PS5 launched, many people have been calling for PlayStation to release new faceplates in different colors. While third-party companies have released different color plates–and faced legal pressure from Sony for doing so–there wasn’t an official PlayStation option. That will change later this month when Midnight Black and Cosmic Red faceplates release via PlayStation Direct. We received the Midnight Black faceplate ahead of launch, and the process of giving your PS5 a fresh new look only takes a matter of minutes.
After disconnecting the cords from the console and removing the stand, the PS5 needs to be placed horizontally on a flat surface with the PlayStation logo in the lower left-hand corner.
