Looks like Sony may have a plan to make the Playstation 5 look less like ass and more elegant by the way of official shells.
Discovered by OPAttack, the official patent is titled “Cover for Electronic Device” and is described as an “ornamental design for a cover for an electronic device.” The patent then has a diagram of the PS5 faceplates for illustrative purposes.
This could explain why Sony threatened companies like CMP Shells if they had their own plan in the works. Or perhaps they realized it was a missed opportunity? I don’t know!
What I do know is that the black shells that I ordered from CMP improve the look of my PS5 1000% and my Xbox Series X is no longer embarrassed to share a media shelf with it.
