Burger King does Sony a solid and reveals PS5 box

2 min read

Just a few weeks ago, a Burger King opened down the street from my office. Now, you must understand that I was more than a little intrigued at the prospect. Having lived in a sleepy town in the middle of nowhere, the number of restaurants and fast-food chains in my new city of dwelling… well, it’s enough to get the imagination stirring.

I was debating whether I should go and see what people like about this place that’s reportedly the king of burgers but couldn’t bring myself to muster the energy. Then I saw an advert on Google that included Burger King giving away PS5s and revealing the console’s box in the process and, because I’m a petty bastard and I was mad that I didn’t win one, I chose to just make a sandwich instead. However, none of this is important right now as the real story here is that we know what the box for the PS5 looks like!

Okay look, it’s not all that massive but people like knowing these things, right? To coincide with Sony’s reveal of the (super generic but also inoffensive) PS5 UI, the company teamed up with Burger King to get the box out into the public eye. Wouldn’t you know it but the box for the PS5 looks exactly like you’d expect. It’s pretty massive, shows off the console cleanly on the side, and comes in either black or white. The box, not the console. Slow down there, buckaroo. The whole point of the box reveal was that Burger King has teamed up with Sony to hand out free PS5s to certain lucky customers who order a certain meal. I doubt we’ll be blessed with such an opportunity here in South Africa but we can dream.


So there you have it, folks. When we eventually get to a point where the PS5 is actually available on our shelves properly, that’s the box you’re looking for. Just be sure to recycle that thing when you’re done with it because it looks like it’s going to take up a load of space. Oh, and don’t leave it on the side of the street the day after Christmas. That’s a great way of letting robbers know exactly what you have that’s worth stealing. Hey, I got your back. Just trying to keep you safe.

    “I doubt we’ll be blessed with such an opportunity here in South Africa but we can dream”
    but thats the thing right, do we not deserve it? we support all these big companies in Africa, what do they give us? Not a few of us, millions of us across the continent, have they ever blessed us with free stuff like this? Are we not deserving? Just the other day Doritos started running a PS5 giveaway, but only for european countries. Hows that for a slap in the face, I buy bags of the stuff every month! Where’s our large giveaways!

      All these conglomerates only favor western & European nations, they use our money, milk us dry, to benefit them. Not only food industry, but also in tech and I can name them all, we ourselves pay them millions every month, their stuff is great, but where’s our free stuff!

      We’re probably 0.0001% of sales, I’d be surprised if any of them can find us on a map.

    So if you see someone walk out a store buying one of these when you can’t get your hands on one, you can say, “Now there goes a groot doos.”

    Did they also reveal decent food, because that would be another first.

    For reals, the boxes were revealed with the consoles a month ago. Why is this making news?

    I doubt this would happen down here. I saved up for the last two years for a ps5, after the pandemic all my money was used to support my family and disabled sister. And i would jumo at any chance to win a ps5. This is so sad that its too expensive here. I have every console from ps1- ps4. Sadly, i think i might inly be able to afford this in a few years
