Sony may have prevented third party sellers from providing you with replacement face/side plates, but you can do whatever you want to them yourself. This guy wrapped his PS5 in vinyl.
Lol I love that you say "TVR style". I had a Tuscan with 7 colour flip paint, pretentiously called 'Cascade Moondust'! Looked very similar to this. Works beautifully on the PS5 curves. I want it!
Sony is going to sue them
They'd have a hard time trying to sue TVR, they've done bugger all for years but make promises of finally bringing us a new car lmao fwiw, I realise that's not what you meant and you were trolling, but it did make me chuckle.
I want plates not vinyls
Yeah, I'd prefer plates too.
That looks dope.
Agreed :) But it'd look better if the vinyl wrap didn't cover the logo.
Seems like a little fine tuning with an X-acto blade would solve that.
And we see the issue with vinyl wraps in this video - the PS logo on the top is completely covered up, and it's the same thing for the "sony" text on the inside edge. Plus over time, the constant heating up/cooling down is likely going to cause the glue to fail, especially when it's not adhered to nice, smooth surface.
You're really exaggerating the "heating up/cooling down" of the side panels here. lmao. It's not like the entire thing is an oven. The "glue" isn't going to fail. This is car Vinyl wrap. If it can wrap black cars and withstand 100F degree in the sun, it can handle a frickin' console.
Not really. If the entire console was glossy plastic, sure, but the console's texture doesn't allow for the best adhesion of the vinyl. Airbrush would have looked a lot nicer.
They vinyl wrap cars bud, do you think cars never heat up?
You're ignoring the difference in surface texture.
surface texture makes no difference dude, ive seen people wrap their matte cars in vinyl wrap which is a way tougher texture than a ps5. your idea of vinyl wrap is like based in the 80's and 90's lol
"surface texture makes no difference dude..." Yes, it does.
I wouldn't necessarily mind the logos being covered tbh
No you're exaggerating the issue of surface texture.
Not sure what it's like.tbh, but isn't it loads of triangle, circles, squares and x's
Fantastic response, best to keep it simple when you're wrong. Look I never said the texture isn't an issue but its not the issue you're trying to make it out to be and you only are because you were proven wrong about the heat issue so you moved on to texture. The fact is using the correct vinyl material and correct tools for applying it like a rivet brush to work the product down means the texture on the PS5 panels is not the issue for vinyl applications you're trying to make it. I encourage you instead of arguing to do some research on the subject, 3M has good information and videos regarding the topic, I think if you were better educated on the subject you'd be less argumentative and combative with people here all of which are trying to politely educate you as to why you're wrong.
is the only color I would consider. Ferrari red
This reminds me of a certain group of people where I live who used to do pearl paint jobs on their Fox Body Mustangs and lowered Mazda B2200 trucks..... it never looked good.
Love the white and black, don't again see the fasination in wanting to change the colour. PS1, PS2, PS3, PS4 all came in one colour. Months down the line different colours were brought out. The Xbox series X is black no ones moaning about that!!
Looks like people are capable of vinyl wrapping their PS5's after all. Looks sweet.
Instant douchebag: just add a hideous skin weve seen a million times.
