Sony has unveiled its latest edition of PlayStation, creating a buzz online.
The tech giant shared images of the futuristic-looking gaming console on Twitter. “Harness the power of a custom CPU, GPU and SSD with Integrated I/O that rewrite the rules of what a PlayStation console can so,” Sony wrote on its website.
According to the company’s hardware unveiling video, the PS5 gameplay experience will be the same. “While there are some slight differences in the look of each model, for the overall design, we wanted to deliver a console that’s bold, stunning, and unlike any previous generation of PlayStation,” the video states.
Stark differences in the design elements include sleeker silhouettes and the ability to stand the consoles up vertically. The radical look has taken gamers by surprise, and plenty of memes have been born.
“The PS5 looks like a new campus performing arts center that replaced three academic art departments and cost US$60 million dollars,” one Twitter user joked. Another thought it looked like the Lord of the Rings tower with the Eye of Sauron.
