This is what a Spider-Man PlayStation 5 console could look like [video]

We are days away from Sony’s PlayStation 5 (PS5) release. Those of us who were lucky enough to nab a pre-order just in time would probably regret it now if Sony confirmed a limited edition console.

Sony has released limited edition console before: Several specialised consoles released under the PS4 Pro moniker, including a bright-red PS4 Pro Spiderman Edition back in 2018.

While Sony has officially confirmed a PS5 limited edition, we can day-dream about one, right? That is exactly what Giuseppe Spinelli, a digital artist from Italy known online as Snoreyn, did.

We can’t stress this enough: This is an independent concept not officially endorsed by Sony. You won’t find this edition for sale anywhere. At least not yet. Sony, are you seeing this? We want a Morales-inspired PS5, please.

The images and video used in this article were painstakingly created and digitally designed by Snoreyn and licenced to Let’s Go Digital. We’ve republished it here with express permission; please respect the artist.

In Snoreyn’s design, the PS5 Digital Edition console and Dual-Sens controller is beautifully decorated on both sides, with a 3D-designed Spider in a mesmerising deep red colour.

The spider web extends over the entire console, creating a perfect contrast with the matte black exterior. Snoreyn imagined the spider web to reflect red light, which provides a playful effect reminiscent of Miles Morales outfit.

Now look at the controller: The touchpads features the Be Yourself slogan, while the controller itself is richly decorated with a shiny spider web. The various red elements around the buttons and touchpad are a nice touch.

Watch: Morales-inspired PS5 console

Sony will release the PS5 consoles in seven key markets from 12 November 2020. Those markets include the United States, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea.

The global rollout of the much-anticipated consoles will continue on 19 November 2020, with launches throughout the rest of the world, including Europe, Middle East, South America, Asia and South Africa.

Pre-orders opened on 17 September 2020 at select retailers, and the stock quite literally flew off the shelves. The PS5 standard console costs R11 999.99 (that’s the one with HD Blu-Ray, while the Digital Edition goes for R9 999.99.

Backwards compatibility

Sony also confirmed that the PS5 would only support PS4 games. The entertainment giant has gone out of its way to make the fans know that the new PS5 will not be backwards compatible beyond the PS4.

Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO Jim Ryan in a recent interview was at pains to emphasise that the PS5 focus was on allowing current PS4 players to play titles from the vast PS4 games library.

“We keep in mind the engineering specialised for the PS5, as we produced the device. In the midst of that, the PS4 already has 100 million players; we thought they ought to want to play PS4 titles on the PS5 as well indeed, so we included compatibility with the PS4”.
