It looks like a jetpack. I wonder how much R&D Sony have invested in making their next console less noisy. I'd say we'll see a much more scaled-down version of that for the final product. That schematic looks more like a dev kit than a console.

Hope it's better than the 4. It never really bothered me over the years too much, but I notice it a lot now in comparison to my absolutely whisper quiet PS3.

And I just did a full internal cleaning hoping that would make a difference - nope, if it did it's imperceptible. It's just a fucking loud beast. I don't care what these things look like anymore, just make it quiet.

That guy is in this PS4 teardown video:



EDIT: Since I'm Dutch myself I did some digging, you can read about the Patent here.
EDIT 2: Interesting PlayStation logo color, nod to old/original SIE?

Couldn’t agree more, they should just take a similar approach MS did with the OneX . One thing MS does right is hardware this gen.
As for the patent it’s the strangest heatsink design I’ve ever seen unless the block on the V part is where the heat pipes go into.

That's what the Dutch article mentioned as well.
If that's the final design then it looks rather messy (even if it's a sketch).
Yeah I don't really like it either, but I have doubts it'll be the final design. Sony is usually a lot more 'subtle' with their hardware designs.

From what it looks like if you stand it up so the V shows properly the output cords (HDMI and USB) look like they will come out from the top? Something seems off to me.

It has legs on the right side when looking from the front to stand it on it's side.

I hope the ps5 is dead silence, the reason I didn't jump to the pro is the sky rocket🚀 noise. I got enough of that with my launch Xbox 360 and ps4.

Should rename the thread, see my post above, the article, new Tweet with images and what's not.
This is the PS5's design itself or the dev-kit at least (would make more sense looking at that extra button and port).

Look more like a devkit



There is no need of 5 USBs or the LEDs on a retail console

Probably a dev kit that closely mimics the case design for the actual PS5. I say this because if *any* of the supposed rumors of performance is true(2080 card)
then it will surely need a good cooling solution. Anyways, this *looks* like it would be big enough for tons of cooling...including a liquid cooling option.
