The DBrand Saga
Sony’s announcement comes a few weeks after it filed a patent for its PS5 faceplates. The company had earlier threatened legal action against multiple third-party companies that sold black faceplates. Sony also threatened to sue DBrand, which forced it to yank its faceplates from the market. However, just days later, it replaced them with a new design and even came up with a marketing campaign that ridiculed Sony’s lawyers.
Now only if there were a way to get your hands on a PS5.
