PS5 transparent/translucent cases are now being sold in China. What do you guys think? The price translates to around 15 USD.

schmeathammer

I don't like it at all tbh lol


shabab2992

I think this could have made with better design, maybe with frosted blue/red..maybe. idk haha..


DavidEdgrrr

You can get frosted blue and frosted see through dark grey.


shabab2992

These do not have frosted/matte finish, their surface finish is smooth and glossy. Do you remember the frosted translucent hard disk covers for PS4 or the dual shock 4s? I was thinking more like those.


DavidEdgrrr

Hmmm. I'm not sure. Was looking at the other options when I bought my clear one on eBay.


knightofsparta

Literally if it was like the 500 million PS4 pro then it would probably not look bad. Straight up clear looks horrible though.


SarcasticGamer

The point of transparent anything is to see the internals like the mobo. There's nothing interesting to see under the case since they're meant to come off and nobody wants to see the fan. These look incredibly ugly to me.


ManyShopping8

Wame


OutofMana__

At least you’ll be able to see the dust build up without having to take the plates off lol


tiLLIKS

Looks cheap and tacky tbh


Dagons_Mind_Prods

Kinda looks like my WiFi router like that… don’t like


IvanHer_11

I'm sorry brother, but it looks disgusting.


1Gamerer

You sound like Gordon Ramsay


IvanHer_11

Wonder how many times he's been food poisoned.


SystemArtistic556

Well, that’s a nice way of ruining the look of the ps5. I guess some ppl will like It tho.


Owain_Llew

It's cool, just not my style. Clear casing for the Dual Sense to pair, or even color varients would be nice. Remiscent of the N64 days.


GarionOrb

It looks awful. Like, "Oops, I lost my original plates and all I could find were these pieces of cheap, clear plastic."


RenaissnaceTana

Makes it look cheap


DaedricPrinceOfLogic

Looks terrible


DavidEdgrrr

I put one on my disc drive ps5 and not looks amazing. Makes it look smaller.


BustThaScientifical

Different but not for me.


shabab2992

Btw, these photos are customer review, and I don't have a PS5 😅


Traditional_Flan_210

I think the reason people buy clear cases is so you can see the inner workings of the console and you can't see much here due to the inner case.


jbkinger

I think it looks great. Too each their own, I guess.


Pretend_LunchHour

I like it


QuokkaKiller94

Looks like ass.


McLEANAHAN

Not a fan.


Krmel

Exactly, it is an outer-plate.


McLEANAHAN

Haha, yes


Emotional-Direction3

I like how different it looks bud. However, it would be cooler if you could see all the insides of the PS5. But I know this is how it’s designed ofc.


crimsonkarma13

Different? What are you sick of of the ps5, its barely been out for people to already be sick of its looks


Emotional-Direction3

Nah, I definitely never said I was sick of it. Everyone’s preferences are different man. For example, I just have my PS5 white still. With the PS1 sticker on the logo. Nice and simple yanno


Shmeediddy

Looks like a wish edition


Vinny-the-leader

and then it falls apart after a few months


Sieze5

Cool concept, but I’m fine with matte black plates


Thisissocomplicated

It’s hideous kojima in my opinion


force1reddit

This sense of humor right here. It's like we're kindred spirits. Let's be friends!


Ambitious-Guest-8993

I have black plates in mine from d-brand. These are kinda cool, kinda not? Lol idk something about them I don’t like. But for 15 bucks I would get a set. Maybe in a different color.


Carniscrub

The colored ones look pretty interesting but that clear one bothers me for some reason


HankScorpio20

Too basic and bland. I'm down for translucent but not like this. I like how Nintendo did they Game Boy Color or the N64 or the translucent DS4 controllers.


kkkaro

Yes


Unstab3l

If I could see the innards, then I'd purchase these covers because that would be cool!


Reelshaunloux

Not my cup, but cool to have more options. I’m sure it speaks to someone.


bowzerb

Id rock one, maybe a red tint would be sweet also


stoneskinmedia

Looks like it's flat which I would absolutely pay money for


gondoravenis

no no


Aggravating_Sky_6457

You would know when it’s dusty


Fenasiqer

I like white cover lot better .


Spare_Honey5488

Ugly af


GingerBeardicus86

Honestly? I think frosted would look better


shabab2992

I think so too, like the frosted dual shock 4 series.


GingerBeardicus86

Frosted smoke would also look sick af imo


IceCreamYouScream92

Terrible


crimsonkarma13

For controllers its alright since it has the electronics you can see and the wires but this is just straight up ugly


johnmichaelhowe

If they could create splatter patterns like you see with modern vinyl records THAT might be cool. Making the black box some other color/transparent might be needed also. Definitely a start.


Sh4d0wM00N

Sorry man its ugly IMHO. Unless you get the middle part clear.


LittleDoofus

Makes it look cheap


StinkingDylan

I’m not a fan of any transparent cases. The internals of electronic equipment are generally pretty ugly, why expose them? Like it or loath it, the PS5 is a very distinct design that doesn’t do well if modified poorly.


RLnoskill

Ugly as fuck....I wouldnt put those even if I got them for free.


dopaminef13nd

👎


OdoBangs

All black is the best


Difficult-Dog-3349

Ugly af


overlord9091

Looks very bad


JusaPikachu

kinda love it, kinda hate it


Venian

Looks better in the dark that's for sure


Sergeantpuppy

Nah


NuclearDisaster5

Ugly as fck.


Runaque

The PS5 doesn't even look exciting this way, it's just boring as hell! All things might look different if they offer transparent casing to replace the black chassis of the device.


Plane-Ad-7069

Not that nice.


Co1nz

It looks horrible


korksz

Any electronic device with transculent cover (except PC) looks disgustingly cheap. But fortunately for you, if you like it, noone else's opinion matters.


shabab2992

I don't like it so much either. I like frosted translucent shells like those translucent dual shock 4s. These photos are from buyers' review.


JAY2KREAL300491

No thanks, you can’t see the guts anyway so there’s no point.


TheBoy9_

The problem is the inner shell is not translucent as well.


UnrealWarfare

It looks horrible, especially with that fan protector.


Mattia90_

I can feel the pain of Sony’s designers when they look at that thing there


LukeyyEDH

Looks dreadful.


BrandNew098

I don’t hate it, but I used to love the idea of being able to change the plates and I’m growing more and more to the idea I just like it white unless it’s an official Sony made limited edition or something like that. The white honestly blends perfectly with my decor anyway. That said - it’s still pretty cool this can be done and it’s noninvasive to the console itself.


nelson_knight

Fingerprint city


stinkypinky0213

Looks stupid


smart-or-luck

Ugly


michaellox23

Looks kinda meh honestly


Erdbeeere

Pretty useless since there is a black cover behind that....


Jtiago44

It's ugly.


Lawfool85

I like them. Holding out in hopes of matte texture plates like the transparent ps4 controller.


bakedpotatowcheezpls

Not a fan, but to each their own.


Sanser_

Looks like a graphic card


Finalfantasie

Frosted would look significantly better (kind of like a throwback to the N64), all clear looks kind of gross and ridiculous.


rocademiks

This looks…weird. It’s like a man with a hairy bush and tiny wank walks around in transparent trousers.


PlaystationJason

Would be perfect to paint from the backside but the mounting clips would be in the way and therefore, still visible. Unless you worked them into the paint scheme.


iLamb3r7

Nope, I don't get the clear back or case stuff. Not my thing 🤣


Hateinyoureyes

Ewwwww. Someone needs to made a squared up version that we can customize


hudnaga

Uggo


xwulfd

it becomes a Polystation 5 lol


Party_Wasp

Id settle for just a ps5 lol.


based-Assad777

Interesting. If I got a ps5 at this point id seriously consider taking the plates off and having it on my shelf just bare since I find the big white plates garish and to shrink the profile a little. Looks like an industrial space ship without the plates which isn't nessisarly a bad thing.


iwillsuckyourduck

ur console gone be reaaaal hot my dude


based-Assad777

Why? Wouldn't the fan have even more unimpeded flow


SupermassiveQuasar

These translucent covers only work if you can actually look at the guts. I don't know what it's purpose is on this as everything is still hidden by the black housing underneath.


_____wanker_____

It’s the same thing I have with transparent controllers, it just doesn’t look good **But maybe if the PS5 had RGB**


TheGamingLife

Well personally i like it. It gives the opportunity to install a couple more lights inside of the casing to really make it stand out.


darthbader89

🤢🤮


BigRedSaysBigRed

The see through don’t do it for me. If the insides looked more like the inside of an N64 controller (purple see through all the way!!!!!!!!!!!)I think I’d have much more interest in it. But it’s a few screws and a fan so meh. I like the solid red one in the second photo though!!!


stixesty

No thank you..


CrimeFighterFrog

Looks awful


Amaranthine7

It’s looks bad. It kind of reminds of those see through controllers that were round during the sixth generation. Difference is the controllers were cool because you got to see the parts that make up the controller, the PS5, you don’t really see anything cool.


latex1974

As bad as the white lol not nice


Snakeeyez541

Ugly as f


gabiruman

It doesn't look good, mainly because there are no electronics right below the plates. For it to be cool, all the PS5 body it would have to be translucid.


Grouchy_Cherry2670

I like it but I think it looks a bit trashy just out in the open. No offense 😄


iupz0r

I liked it


harry_d17

Cool idea but looks cheap imo


dalarki

I like it


Khayne82

They probably made all kinds of options, this is just one of them. Not for me I will eventually get the matte black one from DBrand but I’m in no rush. Obviously the lines of the PS5 disappear pretty much in black but it also blends in better with my other consoles.


Snake4390

Ew no lol Sorry I know somebody may like it but that just looks awful. Now if there's a way to make the glossy front section transparent, maybe.


SociallySoloGaming

I think anything that comes out is pretty cool tbh, might not be FOR me but still cool.


Comfortable_Card_146

Would be cool if you could get plates that refracted the ps5 light to make it look like they were glowing


RandomBurglar00

Can't say I love it


Vista101

This looks awful


Chriswebb3608

NGL. This is actually ugly AF. Like just offer the cases in different colors and its a win. No clue what was going on in their heads with this.


The_Squidly

Would have been cool if we could actually see some internals, but it’s just a fan and a disc drive


TurnOffTheSystem

Would make a good base to custom design your own plates!!


Cyoher_Stone

Looks like shit


Kastri14

China is shit


PANTHERS-FAN-OF-91

Agreed


N0SYMPATHY

Lol based on all the posts where there consoles are filthy dust traps I think it's best no one buys a clear one. Then we will have to see it in pictures all the time.
