Sony has published a patent that would allow the platform holder to manufacture and sell faceplates for the PlayStation 5.
The patent (via OPAttack) was initially filed back in November 2020 and was finally granted a year later on November 16, 2021. The actual, legal name of the patent ‘Cover for Electronic Device’, but if you click through you can see that it is – clearly – targeting the PlayStation 5 hardware.
What isn’t clear from the documentation is whether on not these will actually be removable faceplates, or rather skins you can apply to existing hardware. Either way, given the way Sony has repeatedly had legal encounters with companies producing voers for its most recent hardware, fans will no doubt be pleased there could finally be an official option for them on the horizon.
