“But a day after our website went live, Sony’s lawyers asked us to change our name (PlayStation 5 at the time) due to trademark infringement. We thought this switch would be enough to keep everyone happy, and really hope so since we’re already developing our product.”
“However, Sony’s lawyers told us that it was their opinion that Sony’s intellectual property was spread on faceplates and that if we continue to sell and distribute them in any country, we could end up in court,” the email continued. “It was made public yesterday and we are now canceling and returning all faceplate orders worldwide … We are ultimately disappointed about this but we have no other option.”
All existing pre-orders have now been canceled and are in the process of being returned to customers.
