The PlayStation 5 is certainly a unique-looking console, and frankly, not everyone is a fan. That said, there may be some good news for people who don’t like the console’s black and white two-tone look – some seemingly legitimate leaked images of a conveyor belt in China offers a better look at the white fronts of the PS5, and it seems they can be removed / replaced quite easily. To the point that it feels like there is a chance that Sony will sell replacement fronts. You can see the images below yourself.
Of course, take all this with a grain of salt for now. These images don’t seem to be Photoshops (I’ve done enough Photoshops to know), but there’s always a small chance that this is an elaborate hoax with fake 3D printed components. That said, this seems legitimate to me.
So if these images are indeed the real deal, it seems that the PS5’s plates are not held with screws but with some sort of pins / hooks, which indicates that they are relatively easy to remove. This could be because Sony plans to sell interchangeable bezels or it may just be that Sony wants players to have easy access to the inside of the console for whatever reason. Cooling was a big consideration in the PS5’s design, so maybe you can jump out of the outer shell as an emergency if the machine overheats?
Oh, and another thing is seemingly reconfirmed by this image – the PS5 is a big boy. If that piece of paper on it is a standard 8 1/4 x 11 3/4 inch sheet, that would be in line with previous estimates that the console is a sturdy 14 to 15 inches long / long.
What do you think? Will the PlayStation 5 have interchangeable fronts? And if so, what look do you go with your machine?
