PlayStation Enso: The PS5 in 2018 - concept pics and dream specs

The PlayStation Enso - a designer's view of what the PS5 might look like in 2018!...

If, like us, you have ever found yourself idly wondering what your PlayStation console might look like in the year 2018, then this latest concept art from designer Harold Smook is sure to tickle your gaming fancy.

Yanko published the pics you can see right here of Smook's Playstation Enso 2018, announcing that, "design-wise the console takes inspiration from the Japanese and Buddhist Zen elements, with the premise being based on the symbol called Enso (meaning the glow of enlightenment). (Culture, PS3, Tech)

2018 is pretty fast.
I look forward to other designs. But this one is absolutely crap.

did they completely skip the ps4?

"- USB 4 connection
- DVD Drive with terabyte capacity
- Backward compatibility with DVD and CD data
- SD memory slots for terabyte capacity memory disks"

This sound as futuristic as Johnny Mnemonic did in 1995.

<Insert flashback scene Family Guy style here>

My guess... someone finding this post in 2018 will laugh at the archaic specs.

lol lame...
why would the controller turn into a useless ball?

How the hell is anyone supposed to use that thing.

PS9 is coming soon, PlayStation cocaine!

that ball is the WHOLE system.. it's all virtual reality (according to that commercial) i would be amazed if sony can do that with the PS9 if they're still around at that time.. tho i'd probs not be very amazed then depending on how the tech changes

Try designing ps4 instead.
2018 won't deliver PS5.

Never knew that...
Tupperware was in the business of designing pie-in-the-sky future games consoles!

Those are...
Pretty weak...I dont think the PS controller will ever change again. I could draw a better concept on a napkin.
Max Power  +   1993d ago
that just looks awful. I mean why would he design it like that, and why would someone publish this concept like its a good idea?

Denocao  +   1993d ago
So... you are supposed to play with Sony's balls?
I don't think so. I will pass.
But I am sure many fanboys cannot get enough of Sony's balls anyways.

...Are we going by odd numbers now? o-o

...I think we should talk about the PS3 and the PS4 for now.
Luck_y_Penny  +   1993d ago
this looks pretty bad honestly. Sony would never make something that round
madpuppy  +   1993d ago
It's freaking horrible. yeah, that will fit in a rack nicely. and those controls....weee!
NarFan  +   1993d ago

Jerk120  +   1993d ago
Ps5 won't exist because Sony will give up consoles after Ps3.

By that time console makers might be all portable!

Just think if we had a console with all the power of a PS3 that was portable with it's own touch screen. The drive device that holds the cheap media wirelessly connects to all your games over the internet or through the new bluetooth spec.

It's already started to head this direction with mobile phones, PSP etc. The big bulky consoles devices might soon disappear or become simple docking stations for high end portable consoles.

Look at it this way.

The hand held doesn't need 1080p if it's on a tiny screen. The only time high end graphics are needed is when the screen is used with an HDTV. The full power to create those graphics aren't needed until the scale is raised. In any case this a tiny hand held could run something like drakes fortune graphically and only need the extra graphics power if used in conjunction with a TV.

In this situation one game could be designed for portability yet run high quality when displayed on devices that require extra resolution.

Another thing to note: With the HDTV's today we don't even need cable connections to transmit digital signals to our TV's. Anyway, the future is anyones guess as these are just a few thoughts I had. This is why I don't think we should be thinking this far into the future.
