PS5 PlayStation 5 1

A photograph of what is purported to be the PlayStation 5 has apparently emerged online, although it appears to originate from a Discord server before being shared on the popular ResetEra forums. The image does seem to be authentic, although with coronavirus limiting travel around the world, it’s unclear whether Sony engineers even have access to the production line yet. Group boss Jim Ryan has explicitly said in recent interviews that it’s been forced to finalise the manufacturing process remotely.

Nevertheless, if this is legit then there can be no denying the PS5 is a tall device, but it’s also significantly shallower than we’d expected. In fact, it looks quite attractive from this angle in our opinion.

Again, though, the big question is whether it’s real or not. We’ll contact the platform holder and try to get some clarification.
