A new PlayStation 5 concept design video has been uploaded by VR4Player and the striking console features a novel idea for the cooling solution, which appears to consist of a fan hidden under a removable lid. Screenshots taken from an unknown platform of the future PS5 game Lord of the Rings: Gollum have been shared online.
Daniel R Deakin,

VR4Player has come up with a fresh concept design video for the PlayStation 5 that features a unique shape for the upcoming console (it has been fairly described as akin to a “taco”). Surprisingly, it actually looks quite sharp with its LED strips, rounded edges, and appropriate PlayStation-themed pattern that helps to highlight the black stylized V-shape design feature on the top. Sandwiched between the legs of the “V” is a white lid, which when removed in the video reveals the cooling solution for this PS5 concept (video embedded below).

Hidden underneath the lid is a rapidly spinning cooling fan that appears to have some of its own blue lighting for that essential flare required of a component of the PS5 next-gen console. It’s a fun touch and looks great, as do the consoles in their numerous colorways: There is white, black, patchwork metal, and even a rather snazzy Spider-Man design. The impressive concept design video also includes a look at some PS5 accessories, such as the DualSense controller and PSVR headset. The white version of the console might remind you a bit of a First Order stormtrooper’s helmet, but it is still a standout PS5 concept design.

Screenshots from the Lord of the Rings: Gollum have found their way online (see images below). The game is planned for release on the PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC, but it is not known which platform these particular images were taken from. Unfortunately for Daedalic, the developers behind the game, it seems the general response from many critical gamers so far has not been positive, with some suggesting the screenshots look like they were taken from a PS3 game and others bemoaning the somewhat cartoonish design given to Gollum. Lord of the Rings: Gollum for the PS5, XSX, and PC, is currently scheduled for release in 2021.
