Some Marvel's Spider-Man 2 fans have decided to make their own faceplates for the PS5 in response to scalpers selling the official versions at ridiculous prices. Marvel's Spider-Man 2 comes out later this October, and Sony has been revealing new information about the game at a steady pace.
As a part of Marvel's Spider-Man 2’s promotion, Sony decided to release special DualSense controllers and faceplates for the PS5 console. Both items are also available in a custom PS5 bundle that comes with a digital copy of the game. As these Marvel's Spider-Man 2 PS5 consoles and accessories were only available in limited quantities, stock quickly ran out, probably leaving many fans disappointed. Now, it looks like players have decided to make their own faceplates instead.

Reddit users named Equivalent_Task5515 and tamanui1202 have made their own Marvel's Spider-Man 2 faceplates after not being able to secure the official items. Equivalent_Task5515 has shared an image of the faceplate to go along with their post, showing that it closely resembles the official faceplate sold by Sony. On the other hand, tamanui1202 has shared a video of their custom faceplate, confirming that they were able to get the Marvel's Spider-Man 2 DualSense controller but not the faceplate. Tamanui1202 also mentions that they used the black PS5 faceplates as the base, while Equivalent_Task5515 appears to have utilized the default white one.
Many users in the comments section seem impressed by the PS5 faceplates, as they congratulate both posters on the final product. Gamers on tamanui1202’s post even ask if they take custom orders, with a few players stating that it looks just like the original Marvel's Spider-Man 2 faceplate. Some users also want tamanui1202 to share a tutorial on how to make it so accurately.
On Equivalent_Task5515’s post, one player mentions that a personal touch is better than an overpriced product, which spawns a discussion on whether the plates are worth the asking price. Regardless, many gamers state that it looks great, with another user also claiming to have designed their own PS5 faceplates.
As the Marvel's Spider-Man 2 consoles, DualSense controllers, and faceplates were in limited supply, it is no surprise that the products were scalped for ridiculous prices. Scalping was a fairly common issue that plagued the release of current-generation consoles, and it seems to have continued with any item that has limited availability. It’ll be interesting to see if more PlayStation players decide to make their own custom faceplates if they are unable to get the official ones sold by Sony.
Marvel's Spider-Man 2 will release on October 20 on PS5.
