Chances of having your PS5 match your Midnight Black DualSense. Probably.

NS PS5 recently celebrated its first birthday, in the meantime over 13.4 million of you tried to get your hands on them. The new generation console was glorified for its time, for the most part. However, there have been some minor complaints about the PS5. Its design surprised quite a few people when it was first revealed and as of now there is no alternative solution.

That could also be about to change. What is that a certain new patent filed by Sony implied anyway. Documents filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office show schematics of the PS5’s case and exterior from various angles. The description says “decorative design for an enclosure for an electronic device”. Potential color, pattern, and other specifics of the sheet’s potential design were not mentioned.

The sides of the PS5 have been a subject of relative controversy throughout the past year. Third-party companies that are well aware that PS5 owners don’t like the base design of the console have created unofficial covers and plates for the console. However, in a few cases, Sony doesn’t like that. In particular, one company went back and forth with the creators of the PS5. After being asked to stop, it returns and dare to sue Sony.

Some time later, Sony followed Dbrand about daring and actually threatened to sue the company on its informal sides. Dbrand stepped back to regroup and then came back again, this time with a completely redesigned mask, its creators claim to improve the PS5’s airflow and cool it down. The third-party mask has vents on the sides to create a rather bulky fan inside the panel.

It will be interesting to see if Sony incorporates that into its new PS5 cases and glasses. It could just be the alternate colors and possibly panels inspired by some first party games. PlayStation launched the PS5 DualSense controller and 3D Pulse headset in different colors. All of the above should also be done with a grain of salt. While it’s likely the patent is for the purposes of making official masks, there’s been no confirmation of that from Sony yet.
