S'fine. I kinda like it. Even the blue light version. Whatchu got against blue lights?

Nothing, blue is my favorite color, but all those lights coming from the mockup, be it any color, really makes it looks like a stupid thing xD

It would be great if lighting was at the very least optional to some degree, if not user adjustable. Other than urgent status lighting, like red for a problem with the system, it would be great it you could choose everything. Maybe have a separate dedicated LED light for status?

Choose start up color, shut down color, standby color, gaming color, movie color, etc, or just turn it all off. Worst case have the internals light up on start up and shut down, but only for a few seconds at most, then have them shut off. I don't see why this couldn't be an option, if there was a separate LED for urgent status display, or if the system could override the internal lighting.

Definitely an option to shut off the controller lighting though. Like how much more black could it be, off.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

It reminds me of something from the 80's. It just needs that vinyl fake-wood finish with chrome highlights to finish it off.

Hopefully the consumer released console has a more toned-down look to it.

I think you're confusing the 70's with the 80's.  The 70's was the era of wood finish on electronics.  In the 80's is when we started shifting to sleeker all plastic designs.

Atari in the 70's:

Atari in the 80's:

You are right of course.
Although the first picture, the Atari 2600 was popular all through the 80's and even got relaunched in the 80's for more budget-sensitive buyers before it got discontinued in 1992.
Actually grew up with one in my household.

It reminds me of GCN actually. More the controller than the console, but both seemed too much like a child's toy to see mass appeal as far as I was concerned, even though I didn't mind it since it was unique.

The PS5 dev kit looks kind of like a child's toy, or at least has that vibe to me. I would expect the closest consumer type design from PS to look something like this instead, which I wouldn't mind at all. The digital display is a bit much, but otherwise it's close to something I could actually see sitting on store shelves.

And no, a PS4/Pro design with a 5 stack for PS5 is absolutely unacceptable. Pro is borderline with 3 already.

The Dev kit design is shaped like a "V". - Which is the Roman numeral for "5". - Aka. Playstation 5.
I don't get the connection with the GCN...

The GameCube was shaped as a cube, just like the PlayStation 5 (V) is shaped as a V. That's the connection, shape based on names.

Well, if it's optional there is no problem.

And agreed, as the DS5 will be keeping the light bar they definitely should add an option to turn it off.

I get they need it for PSVR tracking, and that it might cause problems if someone doesn't know it and think their controller doesn't work on VR... but just make it mandaroty when a PSVR is connected them.

You plug/turn on a PSVR and your lightbar will immediatly turn on regardless of your choice.

You unplug/turn off the PSVR and it gets back to how you choose to let it, on or off.

I actually like the dev kit design better.

Not only the huge display, but the added curve inside the V... feels really strange.

And they used a Greatest Hits PS2 disc in the presentation, eww, they clearly have no taste!

Also, stacking is love. Here:

This is the future!
