So, for some time now we have confirmed that the supposed design of the PS5 dev kit that was out there for some time is the actual thing.

Initially I found the thing horrible, but apparently I've been changing my mind recently.

We got an early mockup design, that was latter rendered by let'sgodigital.

This:

Became this:

And I found it pretty lame... but now they have done another version of it, and I think it looks pretty cool.

Now:

I just realised that what made it look so lame, at least to me, was the color scheme, and specially those blue lights coming out of it.

The V design actually looks cool to me, it reminds me the X shapped original XBOX which is one of my favorite designs.

It may be a bit too goofy... but I apparently like that, lol.

Update: a real picture of the dev kit has been leaked, here:

The patent is very identical to Ps4 design patent. There would be no need for patent if it was just a dev kid, in my opinion.



I have never cared about what the console looks like. It can be the size of a Cradit Card or a Refrigerator, it doesn't matter to me. The size and look of the console have no absolutely no effect on me.

The only thing I care about from the physical Home Console hardware is how the controller feels. Again, it could be the ugliest thing that ever exsistsed, but if it feels great and works right, then it doesn't matter to me.

I am only picky about design when it comes to Mobile. A Mobile Game Console has to look presentable, be pocketable, and function comfortably for long periods.

I'm buying PS5 and XB4 regaurdless of their looks.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

Personally I do not like a console or any equipment with a lot of lights on it. After a while they just because distracting under my TV. This thing looks huge and I rather it be the size of the PS4 or even the X1X. Give me a nice sleek minimalist design. I have a lot of stuff underneath my TV so space is a premium.

Yeah, those made the news here and this register was made here.

I dunno, tho, usually dev kits are big boxes, those don't need patents, but now it has a design, and they patented it.

Then this would be by far the ugliest main console of all time.



It's a device for the living room and should be as unobtrusive as possible.

But think about it.

We would short it to PSV together with PS5, because of the shape, and that would make people forget about the actual PSV, the Vita, like it never existed.

This might have been Sony's plan all the time!

Your consoles are at the same height as your eyes, when you sit on the sofa?
