The PlayStation head, in an interview with CNET, discusses the new PS5 design, launch games like Spider-Man, and pre-orders.
"the design was purposely "bold and daring"" It kind of reminds me of one of those concept designs that people come up with that are always more outlandish than the end result. lol....not this time.
It took me a sec when I first seen it, but I really like it, it feels like a next gen console should look to me, if that make sense lol.
Yeah, I agree. Can't wait to see it up close.
First thing I thought was, "Woah!" Keanu style. Then I thought, "This is the future." Like flying cars kind of future. And I think that's what Sony wants to give off. A feeling of next gen gamers expect.
Oh, so its actually big? I think I'm interested now because I thought it was small and vertical which equated with me as looking like a router...
@uRaDecepticon It is absolutely MASSIVE haha. Certainly didnt look like it at the time of reveal (except the height which based on the controller next to it seemed pretty significant). But now that there are more comparison pictures using the disc drive and usb ports for reference, it is one BIG a** console. Just as a reference point, it makes the Xbox VCR and PS4 pro look small
The DS5 is supposedly bigger than the DS4, and the system looks like it's about 3x wider than the controller, so probably about 25% wider than the PS4P. and 50-100% thicker or about as thick as the OGPS3. depth it looks about the same as the PS4, but hard to tell with an angled picture. The one with the disc drive also has that raised part which will make it thicker. So, yeah, this will probably be a massive console.
Looks like a router lol.Still, Sony have always had good engineers, they design some damn sexy consoles.
Like, if I saw a router like that, i'd buy it
Yeah, exactly. All those things that you see in the thumbnails on YouTube - this is that. But, I really do like it.
I'm not even a Sony fanboy but I think this is the best console design in yearssss. The Xbox on the other hand looks like a shoebox lol
I think it looks better sitting on its side. To be honest, it looks kind of like something you'd see in a David Cage game, because he seems to like that contemporary futuristic look, which also tends to be fairly simple lines.
While I like the design (it’s grown on me) I just saw pic of how big it is compared to other consoles including the Xbox Series X... and it’s biiiig. I’m going to have rearrange things in order to fit it into my entertainment space. https://preview.redd.it/m68...
Perfect - about the same size I had in my head, like a High-end UHD player. It'll slot in nicely, or as a tower next to my PC. Not ideal for some, but behind the TV could work in some scenarios.
Yeah, I certainly didnt think at first it was so massive (the height part was easy to notice because of the controller next to it) but it didnt seem that bulky until compared to others side by side. At least the digital version looks thiner, since ill probably go with that one
I really like the design, but it's WAY too big. It looks bigger than my fat PS3. 😟
It actually is bigger than the fat PS3. There's a comparison online where they scaled based on the disc drive and USB ports. It's massive. People were complaining that the SX is so tall, but the PS5 is considerably taller. You can lay it on its side as well, though the size could make it difficult to fit depending on your setup. It'll work fine for me because I have a pretty open setup, but I'm waiting for the black model.
I think size has something to do with the cooling. I'm all for it if that means it'll be whisper quiet.
My biggest gripe is that the console and the accessories will start yellowing after constant use. Don't want to stain the clean whiteness of it. : /
that's not really an issue with white plastics anymore. That was something caused by the reaction between the bleach colorant and oxidation due to light back with older plastics they used for electronics. Older plastics for electronics were more like PVC material than the polymer structures they use today.
What is “way too big” when it’s overall size is half of what a comparable pc would be in size? Like... are you one of those people that does not live in reality.. or are you one of those people that think reality should exist how you see it?
If I wanted another PC next to my TV I'd buy another PC. When I buy a console I expect it to fit where my other consoles are located. Also, quit being a cunt.
Obviously it was made for vertical orientation. That is a no-go though for any kind of entertainment rack. I really don't care what it looks like though, I just care what the games look like. So far the games only look like PS4 graphics but in 4K. 4K is diminishing returns and is very power intensive, it is not that noticeable vs checkerboard from normal viewing distance. I kind of wish they would have gone with lower res but more effects. They brag about clank character being raytraced but BFD, only one character is RT? They need more work in separating the game graphics from what we have now, a bump in res won't cut it.
It can be laid flat as well.
Of course it can. But the cooling systems in the PS5 and SX were designed for vertical orientation. They'll work horizontal, but you'll get optimal cooling when it's vertical.
@Porkchop that’s not true . There areno vents on the outset shell. Either way the intake is the same standing up or flat .
I'm sure if they designed it to lay flat they thought of cooling in that configuration @porkchop
Lamer - If you think any current console is pumping out Ratchet & Clank or Horizon 2, you're seriously mistaken - 4K or not.
I'm sure it'll be fine on it's side. Sony has revealed every console since the PS2 with a vertical orientation, but none of them actually came with the stand in the box to do so. It just looks cooler for marketing purposes. So long as it has the proper airflow set up, horizontal will be fine. I actually think it looks better horizontal myself.
vertical= best console design ever horizontal= meh i'm having mine be vertical
Wish it came in all black
I'm definitely going to see if the two white parts are easy to remove from the rest and paint them.
Looks good. But, I prefer the original PS4 design (Not the slim) defiantly better than XSX but "future facing"! Nah, it looks like something from PS3 era
It's not ugly - it's fine - but it's definitely the result of trying to hard to be futuristic.
I think going disc less is a mistake PS5 plays PS4 I own a lot of PS4 games on disc I can't play them on a disc less system. I am not rebuying the digital games I had to buy because of the COVID 19 crap going disc less is a mistake just look how well that disc less XB1 Microsoft made is selling.
No one is forcing you to buy a discless PS5 - you don't need to justify your position. Its your choice.
I somehow feel that the headline is missing something.
Eh, it says all it needs to say.:)
Yeah, I tried to edit after I submitted because of wrong story type but you cant edit that after it's been approved, then the title disappeared and you cant edit that either🤦♂️ Edit Somehow got it back, not sure what I did🤷♂️
Blandest headline ever
I really like it, especially the all digital model. It reminds me of a skyscraper you'd see in Dubai. It just screams premium, high-end sophistication.
