I have the exact problem, it was a bold move from Sony to go for white.
Lots of home cinema set ups are usually dark tones!
I guess they saw it as a profit opportunity. Release faceplates or a new console at a later date. I don’t think they anticipated other company’s manufacturing plates legally.
The fact that they’re so easy to remove makes me think they’ll be releasing different colour plates in the future.
They knew people would flock to buy the PS5 even if it was pink and shaped like a unicorn lol. They were right.
