Unofficial Black PS5 Cases Back on Sale

The company that sold custom PlayStation 5 cases and had to stop doing so after an encounter with Sony's lawyers, has reintroduced its product to the market.


  1. Customize My Plates has reintroduced replacement cases for PlayStation 5;
  2. The sale was previously discontinued after a visit from Sony's lawyers;
  3. Products will hit the market under a changed name - CMP Shells.

Some time ago we reported of a company making replacement case panels for PlayStation 5 that Sony didn't like - the Japanese company dispatched its lawyers to stop the sales before they got any traction. It seems that representatives of the manufacturer in question - Customize My Plates - have found a way around the restrictions imposed by the Japanese company (via GameRant).

For now, there are two products available, to be sold under the changed name of CMP Shells. The first is a standard, completely black case (priced at $49.99 without shipping). The second is the so-called CMP Blackout - it looks the same as the CMP Shell, but in addition, we get a similar-looking DualSense pad case (priced at $69.99).

GameRant editors also reported on a third offer - the so-called Kratos model with the God of War: Ragnarok logo, which was also supposed to be sold bundled with a matching pad skin. Unfortunately, it seems that this model has been withdrawn from sale (perhaps in fear of copyright infringement) because currently it does not appear on the manufacturer's website.

CMP Shells assures that this time there should be no problems with canceled orders.

"The patent is pending and all sales finalized before it's approved are untouchable. We didn't know before. Now we do. Further, we have not replicated anyone's proprietary design. Our shells improve upon the original by allowing for more ventilation. We will be able to sell even after the patent is approved."
