PlayStation 5 Slim concept renders offer clue as to how Sony could reduce the size of its over-sized console

The PS5 is not a dainty console, by any means. Subject to memes mocking its size, the PS5 will probably be replaced by a more compact edition at some stage in its lifetime. In that vein, a concept has shown what a PS5 Slim could look, and if Sony offered it black, along with its current white finish.

Sony has announced two versions of the PS5 so far, a regular model and the disc-less Digital Edition. However, past experience suggests that Sony will release more consoles before it moves onto the PlayStation 6, probably towards the end of the decade. 'Slim' and 'Pro' models would seem likely candidates, and LetsGoDigital and Concept Creator have imagined how the former could look in a series of renders. 

Published on LetsGoDigital and YouTube, the two have not only envisioned a slimmer version of the PS5, but envisioned a black version, which Sony is not currently selling. In the concept video, the PS5 Slim has been given a flat bottom, but it retains its sweeping design and stark colour contrasts. The black model looks more understated and stylish in our opinion, although it resembles a TV set-top box. Ultimately, the white model is more eye-catching, which may be why Sony elected to release a white version of the PS5 to start with.

There have been hints that Sony is working on a black version of the PS5. In June, the FCC published images of a black DualSense, which we suspect would be sold with a black version of the upcoming console. The black DualSense may be a limited edition controller, of course, but it would be unlike Sony not to release a black console this generation, too.
