GameSpot is a video gaming website that provides news, reviews, previews, downloads, and other information on video games. The site was launched on May 1, 1996, created by Pete Deemer, Vince Broady and Jon Epstein. It was purchased by ZDNet, a brand which was later purchased by CNET Networks.
DBrand, known mostly for its skins and cases for mobile devices, has launched its own version of a matte black side plates for the PlayStation 5, going so far as to dare Sony to sue them over it.
Since launch fans of the PS5 have been clamoring for replacement side plates, especially after a teardown of the console revealed how easy it was to pop the side panels off. Since then, some companies have tried, but Sony has intervened–perhaps hoping to supply its own versions sometime in the future. DBrand is probably the most recognizable brand to try its hand at it, though, and its already selling like hotcakes.
The matte black side panels cost $50 (a discount from the regular $60 that they will revert to in the future) and already its first three waves of allocations have sold out. Right now, the company is taking backorders for a shipment that will go out in May, while orders for the digital-only PS5 have yet to open.
