Hype around Sony’s forthcoming PS5 console is building quickly. Fans on the internet are already speculating about what new features Sony will bring about players this year, and a few are currently snooping to get a glimpse of what the PS5 might hold.
Dutch site Let’s Go Digital discovered a patent filed off at INPI (National Institution of Industrial Property) in Brazil that was later registered on August 13th, 2019 in WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office). The patent design, which also lists longtime PlayStation engineer Yusuhiro Ootori, shows ideal to put a piece of pizza.
Pictures have emerged on Twitter revealing a very similar layout. It is shown sitting near a development kit that was PS4.
Now, is the last PS5 layout? Unlikely. It doesn’t follow the modus operandi. By going with angled edges and a minimalist aesthetic, the PS4 distinguished itself. For Ootori to take such a design step would be surprising.
