Fan’s PlayStation 5 Renders Drop Online To Show Off Potential Console Design
A leaker has shared a sneak peek at what Sony's highly-anticipated PlayStation 5 could look like in a batch of new console renders.
Sony announced in October that the PlayStation 4's successor would be called PS5 and is slated to launch in holiday 2020.
And now ResetEra user CrimsonNocturne dropped concept images of the upcoming console, which shows off a bulkier design than the PS4.
The console's large ventilation is on the back alongside connection ports for HDMI, the power cable and more.
LetsGoDigital reports that the console renders, which retains the V-shaped design, has the disc drive on the left-hand side and the power button closely next to it.
"The game console is considerably thinner at the front than at the rear, so there is sufficient room for ventilation," the publication explained.
"The disk drive is placed on the left front, immediately next to it an on/off button is positioned."
The leak also claims that the PS5 will feature a blue LED light strip, which was used for the PlayStation 4 Pro.
Sony's hotly-anticipated console has not had an exact release date or price revealed.
But a PlayStation leaker suggested that PS5 would launch in North America on 20th November and will be priced at $499.
The same leaker also claims that the console could support titles from Sony's past four home platforms.
An industry insider, called Kleegamefan on ResetEra, claims to have used one of Sony's PS5 dev kits and believes the console is more powerful than Microsoft's new machine.
"Right now, game performance is better on PS5," the user wrote.
"I believe that is probably because PS5 development hardware and software are in a more advanced state.
"I fully expect Scarlett to close that gap once they ship more mature dev kits and software.
"It must be said, since software, not hardware, is a traditional Microsoft area of expertise, it's very possible that they could ultimately deliver more advanced DirectX development software in the end, allowing games to run better on Scarlett even if the hardware is less capable, they added.
"I don't know this to be the case, but the possibility can't be discounted."
Sony's fierce rivals Microsoft announced last week that its next-generation console, previously dubbed 'Project Scarlett,' would officially be called Xbox Series X and is slated to launch in 2020.
