Sony Unveils the PlayStation 5

Raymond Wong and Ryan Houlihan, writing for Input:

The PS5’s bold design is already dividing gamers. We can’t decide if we love it or hate it. It’s no sleek PS2, which — fun fact — was inspired by a skyscraper. The PS5 is weird, organic-looking, and resembles something Zaha Hadid would come up with. There’s no disputing the fact that it’s not boring, though. In 26 years of PlayStation, the PS5 is the most daring design yet and breaks with past console aesthetics. It’s very clear Sony made the PS5 to be shown off, not hidden inside of a cabinet. But would you proudly display it? It’s unlikely to match anything in your home.

I like it, but I think it’s clear that the “Digital Edition” without a Blu-ray drive is much better looking. Also, it’s very big compared to previous generation PlayStations.
