Leaked renders show a super slick design for what could be Sony’s highly anticipated upcoming console, the PlayStation 5.

The renders are based on an image of the console that was posted on the online message board 4chan by an anonymous leaker.

Images - Console - Shape - Layers - Top

The images show a slick black console in a rhomboid shape in two layers laid asymmetrically on top of each other with two wedges peeping out either side of the bottom layer.

According to the leak on which the detailed sketches are based, the new Sony gaming console will be unveiled on February 5 and go on sale this coming October.

Wedges - Power - Button - PS5 - Logo

One of the wedges is the power button, and the other features the PS5 logo, which was revealed at the CES show in Las Vegas earlier this month.

The design seems reminiscent of an ‘X’ shape – inadvertently alluding to Sony’s main competitor in video game consoles, Microsoft’s Xbox.

Twitter - Users - Reaction - Design

Twitter users showed a mixed reaction to the design.

These images don’t confirm the appearance of the new console but are artistic renders based on the 'leaked' image.

Leak - Month - Selection - Details - Console

The leak, which was posted on 4chan earlier this month, was accompanied by a selection of details on the new console, which have since been posted on Reddit.

The console will cost £449 ($499), according to the leak. This compares with a starting price of £349.99 or $399.99 for the PlayStation 4, released six years ago.

User - Claims - Sony - Console - Design

The anonymous user claims Sony will reveal the console design, controller, user interface and specs at a press event at Sony Hall in New York on February 5.

All PlayStation games from all five PlayStation platforms (PS1, PS2, PSP, PS3 and PS4), will be compatible on PS5, making it an ‘ultimate’ PlayStation console, the post says.
