The PS5 could’ve been even larger


“In the beginning, when I started drawing, it was much larger even though I didn’t know what engineering was going to do. It’s kind of funny that engineering actually told me it’s too big. So, I actually had to shrink it down a little bit from the first drawing.”

Even though the final product is still pretty chunky, he said they’ve come to “the perfect size” — any thinner and the air flow would suffer. As for the console’s design, Morisawa said that he was inspired by the idea of “five dimensions” and that he wanted a look that conveys the aura of a powerful machine. That said, the console’s design may not be for everyone. When we tested the PS5 for our review, we found that it felt “flimsy and precarious,” like a premium device sandwiched in “between two thin pieces of plastic” that couldn’t “survive even a short drop.” We still gave the console a score of 87, however, for fast 4K gaming, minimal load times and a solid launch lineup.
