A PlayStation 5 Black Edition concept design video has been posted on YouTube by Snoreyn (Giuseppe Spinelli), and it shows exactly what many fans would like Sony to deliver in time for Christmas this year. It’s already been mentioned that there will be custom PS5 consoles, but Sony could do little wrong by also mass-producing a black edition.

PS5 Black Edition anyone? It’s likely the answer to that question, especially among PS5 fan community forums, would be an overwhelming yes. There have already been many calls for Sony to produce a black version of the PS5, and if the white “wings” of the console are removable, then it wouldn’t be too much of a job to replace them with black ones. The current black-and-white console has been adopted well by the fanbase, regardless of the frequent “it looks like a router” comments, but as this new concept design video by Snoreyn (in association with LetsGoDigital) proves, a PS5 Black Edition needs to be in the works.

The excellent and surprisingly dramatic clip by Snoreyn is clearly copied from the official Sony reveal of the PS5 hardware from a couple of weeks ago, with the talented designer adding his own personal touches. So now everything is beautifully clad in black: Both the Blu-ray PS5 console and the PS5 Digital Edition console, and the accompanying DualSense controllers. There have already been some fan-made attempts at creating a black version of the next-gen console, but as is frequently the case, Snoreyn has come along and shown almost everyone how it should really be done.

Releasing a PlayStation 5 Black Edition for the masses seems like a “no-brainer” decision for Sony, and it would be surprising if the company did not issue such hardware at some point, possibly even in time for Christmas. Sony still has some surprises in store for PS5 fans, and custom editions and a black variant of the console could feature as part of any upcoming official revelations. Snoreyn has even sneaked in a Max Payne game for the PS5 in his concept design video, which many gamers would welcome as a long-delayed sequel to 2012’s Max Payne 3.
