Just last week, Sony rocked the gaming world when it finally unveiled the PS5 design for the first time. Odds are, given how off-beat the console’s design is, it’s not something everyone will like since it doesn’t follow the conventional design of how consoles look like.
Speaking to Bloomberg, Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) President Jim Ryan was asked about the PS5 design, and he comments that the company has designed the PS5 with the living room area in mind.
Can you tell us a little bit about the PS5’s design, because at first glance it looks more like something that you would find in the furniture section of a store rather than its consumer electronics zone?
The PlayStation sits in the living area of most homes, and we kind of felt it would be nice to provide a design that would really grace most living areas. That’s what we’ve tried to do. And, you know, we think we’ve been successful in that. – Jim Ryan, Sony Interactive Entertainment President
Do you agree with Ryan’s sentiment regarding the PS5 hardware design? Should Sony have stuck with a more traditional console look or is it time we got something fresher in terms of new console appearances? Let us know your thoughts down in the comments below.
