After numerous leaks and rumours, a sort-of legitimate non-official render of the new upcoming PlayStation 5 (PS5) has emerged.

The images have been based on the patent Sony reportedly filed with the Brazilian National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI) and, subsequently, with the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO). The patent was filed by Sony’s Technical Director, Yusuhiro Ootori, who is the same person responsible for filing the patent for Sony’s PlayStation 4. Furthermore, the new device is classified under Class 14.02, which is the same category that was granted to the PS4, according to a report by Tom’s Hardware.



The 3D rendering was created by a Dutch publication named LetsGoDigital. According to the images, the new PS5 console will lose its boxy-shape for a more aggressive design that almost looks like a powerful engine of a sports car. It also comes complete with various multimedia buttons, blue lighting and the iconic PlayStation logo. The V-shape could be used to signify the Roman numeral V.



According to the images, there look to be five USB ports in the front for connecting controllers, USB headphones and external hard drives to the console. Hopefully, Sony will stick to the heavy use of the cool blue LED lighting like the one in the renders. One thing is for certain, if Sony decides to use the same design as the renders, then this will be the most revolutionary PlayStation ever released.

But of course, these 3D images are purely speculative. The only way to know how the final design of the PlayStation 5 will look like is when Sony releases official images of the console themselves. Till then, let’s just hope and pray the new console looks just like this one.
