Popular Japanese YouTube channel 赤髪のとものゲーム実況チャンネル!! is set to go cope with a PS5 preview this weekend, but for now, the video’s thumbnail is fascinating enough. This is really the first time that we’ve seen a real PlayStation 5 console outside of press shots from Sony (and rather poor quality dripped factory images).
The console itself looks rather good, and the inner case is a lot shinier than we believed it would be. Whether you think the style is awful, you’ve got to admit that it’s a striking piece of tech.
Our preferred feature of this thumbnail, though? It needs to be subtle way in which it makes the next-gen console look smaller than it really is. As we all understand, the PS5 is a monster of a machine– the biggest Sony has actually ever made— but this thumbnail makes it seem fairly lightweight. Extremely smart.
Are you a fan of the PS5’s style? Do you wish it was in fact this size? Update your viewpoint in the remarks section below.
