Sony seems to have tired of fighting with third parties and decided to file a patent earlier this month where various housings can be clearly seen for the PS5, which suggests that we will soon see the devices with more colorful designs.

PlayStation 5, released a year ago, has an interesting looking case. Besides the console, the PS5 has two long sliders that are currently (officially) only available in matte white.

Since Sony does not sell official cases, third-party manufacturers decided to give them a try, although they faced a lot of legal problems from Sony as a result. The patent as such, dated November 16, 2021 and entitled “Cover for electronic device”, It doesn’t have much content, but you can clearly see schematics showing the PS5 box. In a total of 11 design sketches, Sony displays the PS5’s body panels from almost every possible angle.

There are no colors listed in the patent, and it is unclear whether Sony will choose to sell the cases in multiple colors, nor do we know what colors it will be available in if they do. In May, Sony introduced two new colors for its drivers DualSense: a jet black and a deep dark red. These models took a month to market. If Sony finally releases a multi-color PS5 box, some cases will definitely fit these controllers box.

Companies selling cases without authorization from Sony

In October 2020, a month before the launch of the console, the brand PlateStation5 launched a campaign to reserve panels for PS5 in various colors other than the original white, a few days later it became known that Sony had made them stop production and change the name of the company, even if they thought they were legally protected because the patents were still pending.

The company changed its name to CustomizeMyPlates and announced a crowdfunding campaign for the panels in an attempt to “pressure Sony to allow us to do the covers.” It didn’t work and they came back in January, but under another name: CPM Shells. The product had a slightly different design.

Another brand with the same purpose emerged last December was Dbrand, which sold black casings that began to be sold in February and sold out in May. They went bankrupt when Sony pulled them out of sale, threatening a fine of up to $ 150,000 for each case sold. A few days later, they announced a 2.0 version of the panel, with a different design without the “fins” and with vents.

Sony has updated the app Android PS Remote Play, which now includes an additional controller function for users of Android 12. Now you can connect a DualSense controller and use it to play PlayStation 5 games remotely. In addition, it is important to mention that Sony already provided DualSense controller support for the iOS version of the application in early 2021.

It should be noted that for the thousands of users who have a PlayStation 5, claim that the DualSense controller delivers a great experience, like the new control button, in addition to its design that introduces a new feedback system, much more complete than its predecessors with what has been played so far on game consoles, computers and smartphones.
