Update #2: Though it was originally reported that Gold and Silver faceplates would not be available in Australia, PlayStation Australia has now updated that this is not the case. Both colours will be available in Australia, but they will release “at a later date”.
No release date news for the Silver and Gold faceplates has been release, but Analog Addiction will update this post when we hear more.
Update: PlayStation Australia has confirmed the custom faceplates will retail at a recommended price of $27.95AUD.
Original: Sony has announced new custom PlayStation 4 faceplates will be launching in November.
The newly announced faceplates will launch November 19, and can easily be added to your PlayStation 4 console. Simply remove the HDD bay cover, and then slide and click into place your new faceplate in its place.
There will be four colours launching on November 19: Neon Orange, Aqua Blue, Red and Glacier White. Silver and Gold faceplates will launch at a later date in Europe, but won’t be available in Australia, US, and Ireland; while Neon Orange won’t be available in Scandinavia.
No pricing detail have been announced at this time, but Analog Addiction has contacted PlayStation Australia regarding this matter.
