Sharp new Sony PlayStation 5 concept renders published as retailer starts taking preorders for the next-gen console
LetsGoDigital’s artistic team has been busy with making new renders of the PlayStation 5, which sees some alterations in comparison to previous renders thanks to an alleged leak in regard to the console’s color scheme, overall form, and connectivity. The device is now decked out in silver and black with a similar button layout as before covering the front side.
The PS5 in LetsGoDigital’s newest speculative renders retains the V-shaped design, with the points of the “V” facing towards the front of the console. There are three buttons above the disc slot (standby, reset, and eject) that are joined by two LEDs on the left side of the front face. The right front side of the console is adorned with five USB ports, a power button, and a label for the SSD.
An online retailer based in Belgium and the Netherlands, Game Mania, has already started accepting preorders (pick-up from store) for the PlayStation 5 on its website. Keen gamers can sign up with a payment of €50, which will be discounted from the final price of the next-gen console. Although there is still no real clue of what the final price could be, many are still optimistically hoping for something around the US$499 mark. (PlayStation 4 Slim on sale now at Amazon)
Strangely enough, the preorder page for the PS5 has already been garnering mixed reviews, with the entry currently showing a rating of 3.9 out of 5 stars for the far-from-released console. It seems a bit early to judge something that still has over a year before its scheduled launch date (Holiday 2020), but perhaps there are some die-hard Xbox fans out there who want to take some wind out of Sony’s sails.
