The folks at Lets Go Digital have conjured up a render of what the PS5 box art may look like come this holiday season, and it’s pretty much how you would expect, with a sleek design that champions the console’s 8K and HDR support.
PS5 Box Art Render
Obviously, this is not an official render of the PS5 box, but it’s as close as we’re going to get for the time being. It’s a lot like what Sony did with the PS4, so we wouldn’t be surprised at all if this is quite close to the final product.
Sony has confirmed that the PS5 will launch in holiday 2020, and despite the disruption caused by the outbreak of the coronavirus, it has said that there’s no delay in sight. We also recently heard that Warframe will be coming to the PS5 alongside horror title Quantum Error.
Sony recently held a deep dive into the system’s architecture. Among some of the new details revealed include info on the PS5 SSD, which will feature 825GB of usable space, as well as confirmation that the console will be backwards compatible with a huge amount of PS4 titles.
This does however mean that the long-rumored ability for PS5 to play PS1, PS2, and PS3 games won’t be happening. Then again, getting the console to play PS3 games would be pretty tricky given that system’s Cell processor architecture.
In addition, we also heard some possible new info about the PS5 operating system, which appears to feature interactive interfaces.
Sony hasn’t confirmed the PS5 price yet, suggesting it is looking to see what Microsoft is doing with the Xbox Series X before making a move. That hasn’t stopped a retailer from taking a stab at the cost though, which isn’t exactly encouraging.
