Marketingwise the blue bar on the side with the logo not horizontally makes no sense,the PS5 logo needs to be as consumerfriendly as possible so also as readersfriendly/recognizeable as possible.

Been used before. Saturn. PS1. Dreamcast. Game Boy. Game Boy Advance. Nintendo DS. 3DS. PS3.

Not for a small PS5 thingy on the side but they atleast mostly used the full space to make it more visible,this again makes no sense.

So just put PlayStation 5. Argue with the person who made it



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

That would be better yes,i was not really trying to argue with you but just commenting on the covers themselves.



Don’t hate it, don’t love it

If they switched the logo and background colors I think I’ll like it a bit more.

I too would prefer black case/banner with white logo/text:

This looks really good and is much better than Miles version.

If it were me, I'd make the front top label look sorta like the console shape. Thinner at the PS5, then flare out gently at Only On PS to the opening side.

I'd also go white strip on the bottom and top, again resembling the console. White outer, black inner, symmetrical, horizontal.

Have the box art show through the thin gap above the PS symbol and PS5 area, as well as the thin gap to the right of Only On PS, where the white extends to the edge of the box but the inner black stops just short, like the console.

*Same idea but vertical along the spine would work as well. You could even make it so the front was only showing the right half of the console standing vertically. Or make the entire spine the console middle so that when the box is fully open, the right and left of the spine are the left and right third of the console, front and back.

*Hmm. What about the optical disc bulge though? To leave that out on the box art would seem totally meme worthy actually. I do think the digital version symmetry would look better. Just assume it takes after the upper top/far right portion of the console I guess?

Spider-Man is going multiplat, didn't you hear? 

Just kidding. Not sure why it isn't present on the boxart. 

Perhaps they've just dropped the label for PS5, because they intend to release more of their exclusives on PC (like they're about to do with Horizon: Zero Dawn), and don't want to be accused of false advertising. Obviously too late with Horizon: Zero Dawn, but not for future games.

I think they should still use it, to stand out a little. I mean, it's true at the time of the original release, even if it goes to PC a few years later.



A 13 year old could have probably photoshopped a better cover.



PS4 case looked better, actually, the better Sony has ever done imo



Switch!!!

The case should be black



Only thing I don't like is the white banner. Should be black with white font like the pics posted in this thread.
