If you have some concerns about the leaked PlayStation game console patent for what could be the highly anticipated PlayStation 5 game console, you might be in for a pleasant surprise if Sony actually uses the design. At least if the actual production model were to look like a 3D rendering, that LetsGoDigital themselves.
The first report of the leaked patent, the Dutch publications have created their own 3D renders of what could be the next PlayStation 5, all based on patent illustrations they obtained showing the console from different angles. Which includes the back and its ports.
While the console in these illustrations might seem like some weird night vision goggle from the future - and quite a departure from the PS4's design, LetsGoDigital's 3D renders are of course still a cool factor by a few positions.

- All of these games are confirmed and expected on the PlayStation 5
- Will the PlayStation 5 be as powerful as NVIDIA's Rituximab 2080?
The taste of things to come
Unlike the dull white on the shady gray look of the console you could frolic in the illustrations, LetsGoDigital gives the rumored PS5 an all-black sleek and shiny look. It also comes complete with the PS5 logo, media buttons and blue backlighting.
To make it look even more attractive, that curved V-shape, on top of which we reasoned, could be due to the Roman numeral V, as well as slits on the sides at the bottom, which could be window vents, lit with LED lights. Finally, it looks like this, five USB ports on the front for connecting controllers, USB headphones and external hard drives to the console.
Of course, these 3D models are completely speculative. It was confirmed that the design was indeed registered in the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) database in August of this year, and Matt Stott, senior artist at Codemasters, so to speak, has now deleted the tweet that this is a PS5 Dev kit. Still, the only way to know exactly how the PlayStation 5 will look when Sony releases official images of the console itself.
So we'll have to wait and see how accurate these 3D images are.
