Redesign it all, no on is putting effort into recreating the computer chip, the hard drives the fans etc it's still the same stuff all squares in phones,computers, consoles etcWell...yeah. They do want to keep costs low. If they increased production cost of the housing to make it a different shape, this would then trickle on to consumers who would have to pay more for the console. The point is to keep the cost as low as possible so consumers can be charged the lowest possible price to increase install base.
Sure, it would have been interesting to have a circular console & I have seen some of those custom designs, but they're all just shells, there's no thought given to the internal components which just fit better in square housing. If you made it circular a square disc drive, square solid state drive & a square fan unit would have to fit on top of each other in the machine.
Form factor plays a big part into why 99% of consoles are square.
not enough money in the collectors edition business? or will they continue without physical discs? that would be it for me then... not into toys or statues.. just steelbooks and full slips :/And i have a feeling this will be last disc version console. ps5, and perhaps maybe even this launch unit is last disc version model even for ps5 unless there is a themed one within 1 year of release to tie in with a game launch. Gimme a miles morales ps5 plz
It's going to be pretty substantial.
Its definitely gonna be bigger than the Series X but that picture has been debunked. The shadows don't match, its just a photoshop of what they think it'll be like.
Has it been debunked? It doesn't look like the correct shape so I'm sceptical, but all I could find before posting is people speculating whether it's real or not.Its definitely gonna be bigger than the Series X but that picture has been debunked.
