PS5 PlayStation 5 Sony 1

There are some PlayStation 5 renders doing the rounds, and some sites want you to believe that they’re Sony’s next-gen console. That’s absolute nonsense, of course, considering the company’s yet to even announce a new system. The mock-ups are pretty neat, though, showcasing a slim, almost external hard drive-esque box. There doesn’t appear to be space for a disc drive in these concepts.

For full clarity, the images have been designed in collaboration with the Bonami SpelComputer Museum and are based upon a previous fake, which first appeared on Russian site Rozetked. Ultimately, it’s unlikely the PS5 will be this small, as we’re expecting the Japanese giant to deliver a powerhouse, and we’d be shocked if it dropped the Blu-ray drive any time soon.
