You can't expand the PS5 storage at launch

The buttons use a dual shock absorption system, but the analog sticks are used here the same ones that were already used in the DualShock 4.

When we first reported on the announcement of this company, we did mention that they were not affiliated with Sony PlayStation and that there might be some issues with these faceplates.

If you've been following the leadup to the PlayStation 5's November 12th release date, you'll know that a company called PlateStation had emerged in mid-October to offer a way for people to customize the new console. Not only does the enhanced PlayStation controller feature haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, which both prove to be novel features of Sony's next-gen console, the DualSense also sports an up-to-date USB Type-C connector for fast charging. Sony has confirmed to The Verge, that the slot reserved for SSD expansions will be disabled at launch and is "reserved for a future update".

Many PlayStation 4 owners are wondering what steps they need to take to use their PS4 data on the new PlayStation 5. Most of the frustration was apparently directed at Sony's absence of communication as the company has vowed to remind its fans in advance of the console becoming available.

"But then Sony's lawyers told us it was their opinion, Sony's intellectual property extended to the faceplates, and that if we continued to sell and distribute them in any country, we would end up in court". It is possible that Japanese gamers who didn't have the chance to secure a preorder but are still expecting to get the PlayStation 5 will be disappointed with this news. It will be tough to find the consoles from any store on launch day.
