While the PlayStation 5 officially only comes in standard white with a black center piece, it has not stopped people from modifying their new next-generation consoles. Although there have been many attempts to provide third-party faceplates with varying degrees of legality, the most common adaptations appear to be to modify the base models’ white faceplates. An example of this has a Marvel fan has gone so far as to create a beautifully customized model with Iron Man repellent on the side.
More specifically, Reddit user DGR8EST-1987 recently shared his craft on the platform, posting pictures of the progress from just painting the thing to adding the repellent itself. Roughly speaking, it looks like the faceplates were removed, painted red, and then an Iron Man repellent night light was added to the side with some extra details added to make it seem like it blew out from the side of the thing. You can check the finished result below:

For what it’s worth, changing the PlayStation 5’s faceplates seems relatively straightforward, but be warned that tampering with such things usually voids the warranty. There is also always the possibility that you irreversibly break something in the process. The PlayStation 5 itself is now available with the version that includes a $ 499 disk drive, while the all-digital console costs $ 399 – if you find one in stock.
