[PS Blog] New DualSense wireless controller colors arrive next month, followed by new PS5 console covers

Lies about why mods reply ban and warn me.
Also they should have done a yellow one as well imo it would look neat

So if somebody want a black ps5 they need to pay 600 instead of 500, if it's logic for you it's not for me, even more since black is the core signature color of Playstation.
It's not my logic, it's business logic. If you ask me, we will have colored consoles at earliest with a slim model or perhaps they will offer bundles with the plates in the future for 499.

Ehh, im sorry you have flawed logic, it has nothing to do with being sensitive. You either pay for things or you dont, so unless youre an expert on how much these things should cost and you can show us… then why complain? You come across as an entitled whiny lil brat. Theres obvious demand for something like this and it provides an option to people who dont want to drop 500 bucks for the inevitable new ps5 default colors.

Also this gif is funny but u could be more original instead of ripping from other gaffers.
My logic is hardly flawed.

Did I elaborate on my opinion? Nope. Could I have? For sure. Sue me.

Did I say it wasn't in demand? Did I say it serves no purpose? Not in the slightest. As a PS5 owner I understand the desire to to remove the hideous side plates and their collar popped look. (im kidding, calm down) but not for 15% of the original cost of the machine (digital edition)

Its an overpriced accessory in my opinion. Not complaining in any factor.

Your gif comment is laughable.
 
yea children play consoles, who woulda thought......what is wrong with people.
I guess you have a reading problem. I didn't say that children don't play games. I have only criticized this "neon-ish" color selection as something children would pick. I would have expected Sony to have brought more sober colors as the main demographic is of older players.
 
Children with parents?
We were talking about the target group for those loud colours and children are already a small group and parents willing to pay for this makes the group even smaller. I wouldn't buy that on principle for my kid for that price and i'm definatley not alone with this attitude.

The average PlayStation user is much older, i think it was 30+ and what child has 55 bucks for a color?
my point is, just because it's not your aesthetic doesn't mean other people don't like it.

it's not tacky or ugly, you just have different more conservative style in your gaming set up.

It's not just about kids, its about different strokes for diff folks, some peoples gaming set ups are all pink/blue, this would go along nicely.

You can theorize all you want, but you asked where is a kid going to get the money and the obvious answer is the same place they got the money for the console itself: parents.

Yeah there will be people mixing colors and all kinds of combos probably.
 
I don’t like them at all :( The thing is that since they are only selling the plates, the main part of the console stays black which makes not a bad contrast. It’s like all dark. I think they should have went with light color plates to make up for it.

Not too obvious, i had to pay for my Nintendo stuff back then (yeah it took some time) and not all parents can afford 55 bucks for some blingbling.

that's still a dumb thing to say regardless.

I read the statement correctly.

So just rich kids game nowadays? I know those kids exist, there is a reason why games like Fortnite make a fortune, but i doubt that this is the norm.

It's more common than you think. People have access to more money now than they ever have.

Ps5 wins and gives you customisation! I will keep my white but pink one looks good. Why are they not selling replacement white

Wow, black is a huge improvement for my eyes.
I wouldn't spend extra money on it but definitely an improvement.
Maybe if they had a deeper, darker, blue....

So thats why Sony was willing to sue any companies that were making custom covers based on the PS5 cover.
Dbrand thought they were clever and could fight it....Sony already knew they were making their own product so could attack Dbrand

Get fucked Dbrand you mess with the bull you get the horns.

Though I admit I actually really like the Darkplate 2 design without the "horns"?


lol the Dbrand website is hilarious

It does look a lot sleeker.

Didn't notice the pricing before. $60 nah

I'd just wait on some cheap Chinese knockoffs for a quarter of that price. :messenger_beaming:

Only the Black look good to me the others look like they will make your PS5 look cheap but that might be just the pictures.

When u pay 20 bucks for a 3 pack of tshirts do you say to yourself OMG its just cotton then go out in public shirtless?
T-shirts are at least practical.

I hate all of the covers except black. The controllers are a different story. I kinda like that purple controller.

Ok.....now I'm confused. Dbrands plastic costs more than Sony's plastic.
It offers actual changes to the form factors and benefits to the design. (smaller, better cooling) along with customization.

Still too expensive. All I said was that it was legit.

I agree on the colors. I hope they bring out some different options. Afraid my retinas will experience PS5 burn-in with these.

They went from "Sue us. We dare you". To "Avoiding lawsuits..." and still acting like they are the badasses in all this.
It's their whole image as a brand. Kinda funny when it came back on them but they do make quality stuff. I like the look of their covers better, less flair, but they aren't any cheaper than official plates.
