I wouldn't buy it. There is a lot of room in that general design to impress me though, I can imagine that whole V thing to be extremely pleasing to the eye if they add the whole Ps2/ps4 structure and stay away from cruved edges, glossy surfaces and asymmetry.

If they kept it that look then Sony is asking me to wait for a slim model lol

Don't care either way. Price, lineup and power matter. Design seems largely irrelevant.

What if it looks like an used diaper?

As long as it doesn't smell like one. The ones from my baby is enough.

My wired headset has a fat usbplug which doesnt fit so does my usb hub etc

The PS4 USB ports are not good. I have a handful of flash drives with bulbous plastic casings that won't fit into the the launch model or the Pro. I assume the slim has the same design.

And why do you guys buy this stuff? I rather use the slender and smallest possible usb stick available

That V shape looks like a dust collector. Top should be flat.

I don't much care what the console looks like, so long as it's not totally ridiculous. I'd like to fit nicely on my shelf, and not stick out like a site thumb. It can be a little bit larger the other systems, a little bit smaller, a slightly different shape, etc. So, I'd be fine if it looked exactly like the dev kit.

With all that said, the look of the device is really a major marketing decision. Marketing works psychologically. So, I may not even be aware that I'm less likely to purchase a strange or ugly looking console. I feel like I don't care, but is that really true?

I may be one of the few people that liked the design of it on all its goofyness. Also consoles are stored in place that we don't keep looking at them anyway

So you like it, but even if you didn't, it wouldn't matter.

I think it looks gross, but I don't think it really matters, because I'm willing to bet that Sony comes out with a nice design before launch. In other words, consumers will never see this abomination. And I think most everyone knows that, but in the small unlikely event that this thing actually does get released to consumers, a lot of the PS Fans don't want to be caught saying something bad about the design. In other words, yes, I think that most of the people who are saying they like the design are either lying, or their bias has them convinced of something. This is why so many people are mentioning that the look of the console doesn't matter. People wouldn't be saying that so often if the design looked nice. Sometimes I wish I wasn't blessed (or cursed) with the ability to read people like a book.

But yeah, nothing against said people, but I just wanted to call it out for the record.

That fan video that was posted a few pages back with a theoretical PS5 had some cool ideas, and looked decent. I like the display on the controller as well as the  HDMI ports for PSVR on the front.

I get what you're saying, and it's obviously a lot more complex than simply "I do" or "I don't" mind the look of it. Because while you may personally not mind what a console looks like, or at the very least you might not think you do, there is a chance that investors mind, and if the investors first impression of the product is that it doesn't look nice, that (or any number of countless other factors) could lead to you making that purchase, directly or indirectly.

But much like the boomerang controller design, I think this will be changed with the amount of negative reception it's getting.



I think it looks too flashy for me. Hopefully the lights wouldn't attract my gaze, because I usually don't look at my console while playing.

I'd prefer a sleek design, as usual.
And the empty space I'm sure could be used for something better. It's reportedly designed that way for stacking multiple systems, which is something you shouldn't do with consoles.

Yes I like when I'm accused of being lying. Would you show some evidence of it?

Just look at the pool and you'll see a lot of Sony fans not liking the design, and a lot of posts stating the same.
