Sony PlayStation 5 PS5

Another day, another PS5 rumour. A somewhat obscure website address has been discovered, and it's caught the internet's attention for a couple of reasons. The domain is, which of course refers to Sony's next gen console. However, if you visit the domain, it'll redirect you to the official PlayStation website.

Some have assumed this means Sony is buying up PS5 related domain names simply to lay claim to them before anyone else has the chance, and while that's possible, could have been registered by someone else -- anyone can buy a domain, after all. It's a bit of a strange one, this. We imagine Sony will be conscious of this sort of thing, but as far as we can tell, the platform holder doesn't seem to have ownership over any obvious PS5 domains.

Anyway, we wouldn't read too much into this -- chalk it up as a rumour for now.
