Are looks important? We all use big boxes, with some thinking they can tart up their big boxes with xmas tree lighting. 😉

-edit- that's most of you, lets be honest. 😊

When it's sitting in your living room right underneath whats is the main focus in most people's front room's the TV, yes, yes it is.





I mean, it's not that bad, if you live in a 60's home that had a vision of the future.

I did the same for Argos and Amazon, but rather pick it up from Argos

It does, it's defo not 'over' designed. And TBH, that 'box' is designed to create as much passive airflow as is possible and I dig the functionality design over the ps5's mile out look.

Why didn't they stick with this...

   ????

Would be equally as noisy but better looking.


Anyway....

This is designed to fuck it behind the back of your telly as if it wasn't there whilst it does its job of being quiet and unobtrusive.

Those were rumoured versions of the PS5

If it were real, well, they have to make it bland enough to make people want a custom PS5. The white tops are interchangeable with other colours and designs, apparently. So not so bland after all

It still reminds me of a Virgin Homehub.

Aye, half the internet agrees.

Fugliest console I've ever seen.

A bit disappointing that the xbsx doesn't have AX wireless. PS5 does.

Not a fan of soldered on SSD. Yeah, you can still use a NVME m.2, but they could have used any NVME m.2 in place of soldered on SSD

The teardown video

I was highly impressed with the teardown.
The thermal commponent is very impressive, that fucking heatsink! And liquid metal in place of standard thermal compound.

It looks like they've designed it from a performance and maintenance level up to aesthetics being the last element of design.
Kind of looks bombproof.
But it's still fucking ugly!

This is a funny review "Houston, I can confirm I can see the PS5 from here"

The ps5 is released today in North America and other regions

Watched a teardown last night of the xbox series x, not impressed at all
Big gaping holes at the bottom of the console

The only thing that pisses me off with the PS5, is the soldered on SSD, not good, especially if the NVME M.2 drives don't work and you have to use what only works with the console. Basically meaning, if the internal SSD goes belly up, it's either not going to work completely, or you won't have certain part of it not working

The Xbox series X, has a NVME drive by default. What a shocker Sony

Low stocks around the country, making it impossible for me getting the PS5.

By the way it's going, it will take over a year to get my hands on one

Nope. It's impossible to get one, they're all out because of the scalpers

I got one on release day (UK) and it's amazing. Love the experience. In all my years of gaming, the controller is a revelation worth trying for anyone interested in gaming at all.
Astrobot is an absolutely perfect way to introduce it's capability and a must play for anyone.

Amazon let all the scalpers have the fun of reselling at an overinflated price, and even if I was able to get one, I doubt they would have been able to deliver it

It's an awful situation and surely some manufacturers must start considering ways to be able to register and purchase for things like this, for an initial release. It doesn't kill them but it hurts their overall reputation slightly. Something like being able to register if you're an existing PS+ paid up user and be able to guarantee a new console, something like that.... I dunno. Sorry for anyone who's waiting on one, I'd say on balance it will be worth the wait. Fingers crossed.
