Now that the PlayStation 5 launch is upon us, smaller details about the system and its accessories are coming out. The latest news has to do with the DualSense faceplate. As shown in a John Glasscock YouTube video, it seems easy to remove the black faceplate, which appears under the white touch panel.
In Glasscock’s video, he demonstrates how to remove a Dualsense faceplate at the 53-second mark of the video. He is able to grip the black portion by the edge near the right side of the controller and remove it. He didn’t use any tools when removing it and showed how it can snap off and out of place, exposing the white plastic below. He then holds the face plate on its own, away from the PS5 controller, to show it off.
The video also looked at other potential customization options. For example, Glasscock noted the analog sticks seem to be the typical size and works with covers like ones made by KontrolFreek.
Sony already shared in past videos how people will be able to get into the system’s parts to make changes. In a video looking at the PS5 itself, it demonstrated how to shift plates to remove dust.
The PlayStation 5 and DualSense will launch on November 12, 2020 in Australia, Japan, North America, and South Korea and on November 19, 2020 worldwide.
