As far as I'm concerned, there are three big questions dominating the global conversation right now. When can I go outside and hit the pub again? Did Carol Baskin actually feed her husband to the tigers? And what exactly will the PlayStation 5 look like?
Sony's upcoming next-gen console is no longer as mysterious as it was even a few months ago. We now know everything there is to know about what's going on under the hood of the machine, and we recently got a look at the brand-new DualSense controller. The only thing that's really left to discover is the design of the console itself.
Of course, now that the DualSense is out there, it could be argued that we have some indication of what the PS5 will look like. After all, a controller tends to reflect the design of its console... right? For example, the Duke was ugly af and the original Xbox was also ugly af. A match made in heaven.
The good folk at LetsGoDigital seem to agree with this line of thinking. Using the sleek, sci-fi-inspired DualSense controller as a jumping-off point, they've put together an absolutely gorgeous concept piece imagining exactly what form the next-gen PlayStation will take. I can't speak for everyone, but I'd be pretty damn happy if this was the official design.
Take a look at it in all its glorious... erm, glory below. I personally like how it kind of evokes the classic PS2, especially the gorgeous all-black version.
We obviously have no idea of knowing how close to the real thing these concepts are, but I wouldn't be surprised if the official product ended up looking something like this. As long as it doesn't look like a small fridge, I'll be absolutely fine.
Sorry. I don't mean to dig at the new Xbox, but I need this thing to slide under my TV stand, you know? I have no idea where the hell I'm supposed to put the Xbox Series X, but there's approximately zero room for it anywhere near my actual television. Not ideal for a home console.
Hopefully we won't have much longer to wait before the PS5 is finally revealed in all its glory. Just last week, Sony Interactive Entertainment president and CEO Jim Ryan said that the console was still on track to release by the end of 2020 and that we'd get our first look at the next-gen PlayStation in "the coming months".
