The standard PS5 ships in a sleek white box, but in order to differentiate the two models, the PS5 Digital Edition comes in an elegant piano black carton.
cannot wait to see a special edition one... dam, the first supply should be unique "DAY ONE" edition
It really wouldnt surprise me if Sony were to brand some as Day One.
Is this the official packaging?? Actually not that attractive.
Nah that’s a MS thing . It’s possible but I doubt it
@jz, all the more reason I said it wouldnt surprise me. Sony has a habit of doing their own spin on something MS has done previously.
You really need to be in love with the brand to call "Obscenely Attractive" a box with a render of the console. I think it depends on how much you like the PS5 design.
nah...Sony is not desperate like MS in that department
Who cares about the box? It's going in storage the second the console is ready and plugged in my TV.
That would be awesome, to make some Day One editions... don't think it will happen but that would be cool...
I get paid over $90 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I'd be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless. Heres what I've been doing, HERE► https://bit.ly/2zPpkEQ
Nah anything marked day one looks a bit manky down the line playing xb1 at my mates house a few years after its launch his controller said day 1 and it looked werid
Ps5 oversized router edition $499.99
It's a box. Who cares? Seriously.
You watch nobody give a crap about the box for the PlayStation lol It's great...but I want what's inside, please, and wouldn't care if it was served to me in a dirty ashtray!
Hey, that’s a cool looking box if I do say so myself lol. I wasn’t sure what it was at first (before clicking on the article and reading it) and thought to myself “WOW, does that thing come with the PS5? Whatever it is, I want it...🤪😂and little did I know it was the box that the console comes inside of iyiyiy.
Lol true true
Lol, I thought I'd care about boxes but then realized I actually threw out every box lol. Definitely right
Lol. I kept my PS4 box for 3 years. Just had it under my table, left exactly how it was after I’d opened it. I’m honestly not sure why tho haha.
I've been keeping my gaming boxes since the N64 came out, they make for nice displays.
You'd be surprised at how much gamers love their hunks of cardboard. I can be a sucker for boxes too, even though they tend to just sit in my closet. I sometimes fill them with things to save space, such as collector's editions and whatnot. Some collector's editions come with their own boxes.
Will there be a special edition Spider-Man Miles Morales console?
"Obscenely Attractive"... It's the picture of the render of the console, in the box: https://images.pushsquare.c...
Im still waiting to see the tear down of the system. Where is the SSD expansion port and I guess there is no optical out port now.
I agree with you once again. Details are scarce and hype is high...understandable. Unfortunately there haven't even been rumors about ps5 expansion price capability or partners unlike the 220 estimate for the series x/s seagate expansion 1 tb drive. We need more info. I'm all in for ps5 and series x, but let's not give sony a pass for bungling this launch/preorder or the lack of definitive info, that also includes games and their exclusivity or not.
Audio has gotten better over hdmi, but yeah optical is still really good and a lot of people still use sound systems that supports optical. weird that its gone especially since audio is such a big focus on Ps5, but I guess it had to go at some point. I would guess the SSD port is under where the stand is standing vertically or on the backside. Havent gotten a really good look at it though so IDK, but that backside with more USB ports and so much ventilation. I guess PS5 loves to breathe. judging by the placement of the ports back there the mobo is put smack down the middle inside the system so it is flowing air on both sides. cpu heatsink on buth sides might not be crazy talk after all but we will know for sure when we get a teardown.
This is obscenely exaggerated. It's a black box with grey shapes and a picture of the console. It's not particularly interesting or neat; just a pretty plain box.
I can just see the follow up article: "Top 10 Launch Console Boxes All of Time"
If there is such a list... I'd expect to see the Gears 3 box as well as the Halo 4 box. those are really nice box art as well as themed systems.
Lol. That wouldn't surprise me at all; especially here. 'Who won?' they'd ask.
Please don’t give people anymore “fanboy war” type ideas lol
What do you expect from the most bias towards Sony community ever. I pretty much only play PC and have zero allegiance to BRAND. Nothing but corporate stooges on this website.
I play on everything and I absolutely agree with you about the N4G community.
That's funny because there's been a lot of xbox trolls in almost every Sony thread I go too. You don't have that same energy for xbox fans, or is it only Sony fans you pay attention too?
@GuzsKreist I was going to say the exact same thing. @Silly gameAr Ignoring the point and still trying to start a flame war, when the argument was against ALL fanboys. You're part of the problem.
Kind of like that box for xbox series x the other day that people thought was the greatest thing ever. In the end, it's only a box, right? I never really looked at the box myself. I was mostly interested at what was inside that box.
@Silly I could see actually see a comment like this if there were something unique going on with the box or packaging, but there isn't. It's decidedly plain and minimal, and not punchy at all which can be cool, but again, this isn't anything. I'm sure Xbox's box won't be anything that stands out either.
We've seen Xbox's boxes already. Tbf, the Xbox Series X box box is nice - if you're into boxes, which I'm not really, so...!
It’s nice to look at things I can’t pre order because it’s sold out everywhere. But...but...but we’ll have 16 million ps5 consoles ready to buy. My fucking ass. >:(
The biggest electronic retail chain in my country got only 3000pcs. It was all over after 4h. The site was hammered. I was hitting refresh for 2h. I've managed to snag one though, along with additional DS, charging station and new camera.
I managed to get another Dualsense Controller and Spider Man Miles Morales (Ultimate Edition). That’s a start. Kinda knew my chances of getting one were slim. Good luck to those waiting and congrats to those that did obtain this beauty of a console.
That's why I'm just going to wait six months or so for all the hype to die down. I want a PS5, and I'm going to get one, but I'm not going to die if I don't get one right away. Plus, by that time more games will be out for the system.
2020 has been a horrid year with Covid-19. Movie theaters closed, theme parks closed, concerts cancelled. There is nothing fun in 2020. Nothing but chaos, hatred, killing. Turn on the news and there is nothing but murders and viruses.. In comes the Playstation 5 and Xbox series X when we need them most. I usually wait to purchase a new console but 2020 is the best time in my life to purchase a next gen console. The only bright lights of 2020 are Playstation 5 and xbox series x.
That's a good comment. Smile everyone. Ps5 is here. Literally the only good thing for me too. saying that I've been doing quite a few press-ups in the garden I'm feeling a difference! Have a great day
You could say you're literally 'pumped' for PS5, ha! ...My bad, I'll just leave...
I agree that 2020 has blown monkey chunks, but it sounds like you haven't had a lot of good happen in your life this year besides these new systems coming out. If that's true, I hope they're enough to help you climb out of whatever pit you're in.
Oh yeah baby im ready
its just a box, dude
it's a box...
I approve of your accuracy. Until you stamp on it and chuck it in the bin. Then it's an ex box.
Quick make an article about the box...
It and the Series X have some of the best packaging I’ve seen
Seems Sony and Microsoft reversed colors on their respective base boxes. Well I'm sure quite a few of us will be all about that base, or mace, depending on how we handle the upcoming launches. I look forward to punching or saying hello to you all on November 10th and 12th.
I like the digital box better than the physical one.
I’ve got my pre order don’t worry, but that box is defo not obscenely attractive, it’s fugly. No one likes ordering food from a menu with photos of the food, I don’t need a phot of my PlayStation on the box either
You know they do that so people can look at the box either on retail shelves or in a picture in an online listing and see what's inside, right? I for one actually like when menus have pictures of some of the food so I know what it looks like. With a console, that's less important as I know what I'm buying anyways, but maybe some people want to look at it and see the console's aesthetic.
I am getting the PS5 console but the black box looks better. Usually the dark one is the premium.
Obscenely Attractive... Lol so dumb.
Looks like the console got cut in half but its just a box
Looks dope. My favorite console boxing will always be the PS2. It was simply a blue box with the lettering. Simple but clean.
Canceled my pre-order cause of ugly box design /s
