MediaMarkt trolls PS5 price and console design leak attempt and two-tone fan-made PlayStation 5 concept renders elicit memories of the PS3
An attempt at “leaking” the PS5 price and potential final console design has been thoroughly trolled by MediaMarkt. The failed leaker used the pages of the German retailer’s website to mock-up images of a PS5 purchase page complete with pictures of the console and the price. These fake images, which have been appearing on social media and internet forums, depicted the PS5 priced at 499 Euros (US$566) with free delivery on the Spanish-language site for MediaMarkt.
For those who didn’t instantly recognize the already widely published fan-made concept design of the PS5 used in the “leaked” images, being supposedly listed on MediaMarkt’s pages would offer a lot of credibility. Fortunately, the company has already taken to Twitter to have a chuckle at the expense of the attempted leak’s creator, stating: “The PS5 has not yet come out, but we see that a user has managed to take pictures of it on our WEBSITE. Does it come from the future or has an initial course of Photoshop been taken?”
Another fan-made PS5 design concept has hit the news, thanks to Concept Creator (Jermaine Smit) and LetsGoDigital. The renders and video show off a PS5 console decked out in black and white, with the two tones separated by a blue LED so that it looks like the DualSense’s colorway. As for the overall design, this particular PS5 concept has the rounded look of the PS3 and seems to shun the idea that the final design will be overly thick and more reminiscent of the V-shaped devkit.
The video for the PS5 concept also briefly shows off a game disc for GTA 6, which is one of the many games expected to become available for the next-gen console. More details about games for the PlayStation 5 will be revealed at the event taking place on Thursday June 11, which Sony has recommended viewers make sure they have some headphones to hand for as “cool audio work” will be part of the show.
