Love it or loathe it, the PS5 is at best an unorthodox looking console. Dbrand, the ever outspoken accessories and hardware modding manufacturer, has found the solution, however: translucent coloured plastic skins, just like those in the 90s. Whether you had a PS1 memory card, a Tamagotchi, a Nintendo 64, or a Game Boy Color, you’ll immediately recognise the style.
The official website leans hard into the nostalgia: “You're doing some online shopping. A company called Dbrand is selling Retro Darkplates for your PS5. Their translucent colours remind you of your old N64.” The description goes on and on, with the same tongue-in-cheek attitude the organisation is known for.
The plates are available for the standard, disc-based PS5 and its Blu-ray-less Digital Edition alternative in Smoke Black, Atomic Purple, Ice Blue, and Fire Orange. They’ll cost you anywhere from $84.00 to $99.95, depending on which option you plump up for. Will you be customising your console with one of these absolute beauties?
