However, the console itself stole the limelight at the PS5 reveal event in June, with some fans praising it, some criticising it, and many creating memes out of the console.
As how the console looks aesthetically pleasing is such a vital part of a console development, it was important that Sony got the design of the PS5 right. Did they? Let's find out.
What does the PS5 look like?
The PS5 itself is of a similar colour pallet to the DualSense controller, with Sony opting to give the console a two-tone black and white design.
Gone are the flat, hard black edges of the PS4. The PS5 instead boast an impressive white outer shell, although we have our concerns as to whether white is really the best colour in the long-term (get your Dustbusters ready)...
The PS5 first appeared standing upright, but fear not as it can also sit horizontally, which may be necessary given its large stature. Coming in at a whopping 15" high, the PS5 is considerably taller than the PS4 and Xbox Series X.
Is the PS5 design confirmed?
If you're asking this question, then the chances are you don't particularly like the PS5's design.
Unfortunately, this is the final design of the console barring some major design flaws, and so if you are intending on sticking with the PlayStation into the next-gen, this is what you're stuck with.
However, don't lose hope if your main problem with the PS5 is the colour scheme!
In a tweet announcing the reveal event, PlayStation showed off a black DualSense controller, indicating that their products will not solely come in the two-tone design.
Fans have since created mock-ups of an all-black PS5, and it looks stunning.
