What a PS5 will look like after a few short years on your shelf and a lot of these in second hand shops

Why? My Wii is still as white as ever.

OT: I'm not a fan of the design. I'm all for better cooling though. My launch PS4 is far too loud.

Technically I could have a thousand PS5s in my home, but the places I’d want to put one of them are slim to none. The look and size of this thing would be a huge reason for me to pick an XBox over the PS5, because that one actually looks neutral, though it’s also not exactly on the small side.

Well if you could technically have a thousand PS5s then if you wanted any of those to play the games I'm sure you would find a way

As far as space is concerned, I mean I could fit about 20 on my coffee table alone. I didn’t mean to boast about money, I can’t afford a thousand PS5s.

If you are a dirty pig or If you smoke 3 packs of cigars a day while playing it in a closed space

I mean, I have two X360's that are still perfectly white, along with a Wii... so yeeeaaaah, not gonna' happen, especially not after "a few short years on my shelf" lol. 



My stuff is still white but going into second-hand shops most white consoles have turned yelllow. The average consumer mistreats stuff esp in the US. A gaming forum crowd lives in a bubble.

My dad isn't part of a gaming forum and his white consoles and tech things are all still white... maybe people should just learn the absolute basics of looking after their things?

I worked in second-hand shops and managed 1 for some years. I also game hunt a lot and finding a white system is rarer. Japanese shops it's usually better. Except it's a mixed bag on Super Famicoms. Heat and/or UV light reacts to a chemical in the plastic. White Saturns pop up a lot but every so often a yellow one creeps in.  In the US tho games and systems are heavily abused. Missing inserts. Cases. Scratched discs. Yellowed systems abundant. Oddly one thing I saw a lot is Wii's were fine except the panel for Gamecube controllers turned yellow. Just the panel door.  Then I don't even want to touch a smoker's system. That smell never gets out. One common issue with used consoles is dead bugs inside them. Cockroaches esp. The plastic yellowing mainly depends on how much heat or UV light it gets.

Somewhat unrelated but another issue with older electronics is those that had a rubberized surface. It deteriorates after a decade or so into a sticky gooey mess. An MS Zune from 2007 or some older Laptops or an OQO.

But that's not what you said. You said that it'd turn yellow after "a few short years on your shelf".

You can do better dude.

I'm not sure that is accurate, unless maybe you are a smoker or have your PS5 in a living room with a commonly used fireplace. I've had my 360 for 14 years now and it is still white, not yellow.

Well if you have that much space on coffee table but nothing on your TV space them perhaps you give more priority to your coffee area =p
