Despite looking a bit like a winning contestant on Robot Wars, we kinda liked the look of that strange V-shaped Sony PlayStation 5 dev kit.
Don't ask us to explain it, there was just something rather nifty about it as a concept.
Then again, we're also quite partial to the look of the new tower shaped Xbox Series X console recently unveiled by Microsoft.
That being said, the new Xbox is entirely impractical for our own TV set up at home. But that's just this writing speaking personally based on some ikea furniture I'm sure half the country probably uses also.
The point is, we sort of liked that V-shaped PS5 dev kit.
It's just different enough to look interesting without being totally impractical for most users home setups.
The problem is, in the few pictures we have seen, it still looks rather fugly in it's existing chasis.
But thankfully, some clever clogs has carved out enough free time to design a professional render of the v shaped design but with a similar aesthetic to the PS4 Pro and PS4 Slim design ( Via Reddit ).
Have a proper look in the gallery below at all the pictures.
Now, judge us if you want, but hey, we like the look of it and would happily make room for it in our TV unit without a second thought.
Sure, it has got a bit of the doorwedge look about it, but we like it. Maybe we're just sick of every slim black rounded Sky box looking thing.
Slap a Gamecube style handle on it and we'll be sold.
Realistically though, we doubt the finished PS5 unit will look anything like this angular dream of the dev kit fans have seen in pictures on the internet.
For anyone who perhaps doesn't know, a console dev kit is essentially just a super stripped back version of the console, made more for developers to test and create their games.
The finished console, sold on shop shelves pretty much never looks like these crazy looking machines. Need an example? Look at the PS4 dev kit below as a prime example.

PS5 News and Leaks
So far there's an awful lot of details about the PlayStation 5 console which have been shared, but they're quite bitty and to make things easy, here's the key takeaways we have learned.
First up, the PS5 will supposedly have Ray-tracing support that is hardware-based and deliver incredible next-gen graphics and shadows.
There will also be a new SSD that will help boot times, loading times and streaming of games too. That's sure to be handy with PlayStation's increased focus on Streaming and PlayStation Now service, which is confirmed to continue on PS5.
As for that new Dualshock 5 controller, it'll have adaptive triggers, haptic feedback, new speakers and will charge using USB Type-C.
"With haptics, you truly feel a broader range of feedback, so crashing into a wall in a race car feels much different than making a tackle on the football field. You can even get a sense for a variety of textures when running through fields of grass or plodding through mud," explains PlayStation President and CEO, Jim Ryan.
