Dbrand reveals new PS5 darkplates after pulling the original
Dbrand has unveiled a brand new design for its PS5 Darkplates a few days after the original sale.
If you’re not familiar with the original darkplates, they looked exactly like the PS5’s side shell, but instead of being white, they were matte black. While marketing the first version, the company lured Sony to “go ahead, sue us” and Sony issued a legal threat. Shockingly, just a few days after Sony was forced to pull the old version, DeBrand is already ready with a new design. The company says it has been in development since September, but will not conveniently tell us when Sony began a ceasefire and shutdown.
Darkplates 2.0 looks a little different than the original model. While they’re still attached to the sides of the PS5, the new Darkplates are more rounded rather than having a sharp, popped collar-look closely related to Sony’s console. (They now have a flagship vent next to the PS5’s wings.) The new darkplates come in three colors – matte black, “retro gray” and white.
