Recent reports confirm that the custom PS5 faceplates company PlayStation 5 is on the verge of facing a threat of sue from Sony due to copyright infringement.

Earlier, Playstation had revealed a teardown video confirming the sale of their custom made PS5 faceplate made from, “premium industry-standard plastic” at 32$ each. Available in five color combos of Cherry Red, Chromatic, Indigo Blue, Jungle Camo, and Limited Edition V1 Matte Black, the new faceplate was offered at free shipping worldwide which was to begin its market debut from November 14th onwards.

However, prior to its launch, it seems that the journey might not be in smooth waters anymore. Sony has recently traced down the creation of PlayStation 5 faceplates being a part of the PS5 intellectual property. It has in fact asked the company to change its name and threatened to sue it if unaltered, on the grounds of copyright infringement. Commenting on this, the company writes,:

“We thought this switch would be enough to keep everyone happy, and honestly were hoping so since we were already underway with our product development,”…..But then Sony’s lawyers told us it was their opinion, Sony’s intellectual property extended to the faceplates, and that if we continued to sell and distribute them in any country, we would end up in court.”

The company, keeping in mind this serious concern has therefore changed its name to CustomizeMyPlates and has been refunding to all the customers who had enlisted their names and made payments for pre-bookings.
