PS5 Concept Designs Built in Dreams Are Sleek as Hell

Sony has yet to reveal the official design of the PlayStation 5, and all we know of what the hardware could be is based on leaked photos alleging to reveal the PS5 dev kit. But thanks to one intrepid player and PlayStation's create-what-you-want game Dreams, we have one impressive, futuristic take on what the PS5 could look like. IGN fan (and longtime Podcast Beyond! listener and Facebook group member) Dan Kuhl built a PS5 concept design in Dreams, fashioning the would-be console out of the suite of tools included in Media Molecule's Early Access version of Dreams. Check out the gallery below. [widget path="global/article/imagegallery" parameters="albumSlug=ps5-dreams-concept-by-dan-kuhl&captions=true"] Speaking to IGN over email, Kuhl explained that he took some inspiration from the alleged leaked dev kit photos, but that he "just tried to make it look like a more consumer-friendly realistic(ish) console." The most difficult part of putting the console together for Kuhl was actually sculpting the ports on the back, as he hoped to make them appear somewhat real. Kuhl's original rough designs have begun to crop up around the web, with some trying to tout them as "real" designs, but Kuhl's creation is 100% fan made Kuhl wanted to note that he's not an expert 3D sculptor — most of his work in the field has come from Dreams, where he's made plenty of other designs you can check out. He's uploaded this design to the Dreamiverse so players can jump into the game and take a close-up look by searching for "PS5 Console Concept."
