Sony should take a look at these radical PlayStation 5 concept renders
A lot has been said about the expected hardware specifications of the PlayStation 5 console lately. But there is something else that should be considered along with all of the gigahertz and teraflops – what it will actually look like. There has been a fan-made design render of the PS5 doing the rounds for quite some time now, but Sony has a bit of a habit of making huge style changes from each generation of PlayStation.
The PlayStation/PS one had its design based around the game discs it relied on, and then the PlayStation 2 came out looking nothing like its predecessor. The PlayStation 3 removed the hard edges and opted for a curvier and sleeker look, and even though the PlayStation 4 is now over five years old it still looks like something from the future. So what will the PlayStation 5 look like?
The design geniuses at LetsGoDigital have had another go at revamping the PS5 concept render, and this new effort looks incredibly different to anything Sony has tried before. A large LED-lit “V” is pasted over the top of the device to represent the number 5. The “PS5” and “PlayStation” logos are present…and there’s little else. It’s slightly reminiscent of a high-tech flattened accordion; it’s a daring design that would attract attention – both negative and positive.
