ALWAYS dreamt of a black PlayStation 5? It’s now a reality thanks to one accessory maker.
Until now, it’s only been possible to have the standard all-white PS5.

It’s a stark contrast to the black PlayStations of yesteryear – and the Xbox Series X for that matter.
But Canadian firm Dbrand has created black PS5 “DarkPlates” that modify your console’s look.
Of course, you’ll already need to own a PS5, and they’re hard to come by.
But if you can get your hands on one then you can upgrade the design easily.

The sheets of plastic attach to the exterior of the console in a very unobtrusive way.
It’s not free though: you’ll pay $49 (£35) for a set.
Sony’s new PS5 is seriously attractive and has legions of fans who love the new design.
However, not everyone agrees that a minimalist design with a single colour is ideal.
“With the release of Darkplates, the unthinkable has happened,” said Dbrand.
“We’ve taken Sony’s monumental achievement in bad design… and made it matte black.
“We can only assume that our prizes are in the mail.”

Sony has used an all-back colouring for its consoles since the PS2 was released 20 years ago, so perhaps it’s time for a change.

Grab a VR headset and you’ll be able to play the legendary Beat Saber – like Guitar Hero, but with lightsabers.
And Dell’s Alienware R10 Ryzen Edition is a gaming PC powerhouse that crushes both the new consoles.
