PlayStation 5 game boxes are going to look the same same but slightly different

Same-but-different

Sony has finally revealed, much to the delight of the millions of box-art starved fans around the world, what a PlayStation 5 cover will look like. That’s it, that’s the story and Google’s SEO is going to slap me harder than a sober Russian in a Mrs Palmer and her five daughters flesh collision on this but what the heck:

PS5-box-art

Nice. Because I’m desperately trying to think of some way to spin extra words on this, I will say that the slash of white on the cover suits the new style of the PlayStation 5 console, which I’m still convinced happens to resemble an Autobot wi-fi router before it gets given the command to heroically roll out. There’s also a banner of white on the spine, so at least these games will stick out from your collection of PlayStation 4 games, if you’re still collecting physical copies that is and haven’t joined the rest of us in the non-refundable digital sun.

According to sources that I’ve just made up, Xbox game covers will also follow a similar path on the Xbox Series X, presumably having a touch of green that is easily confused for Mountain Dew-vd films.

  1. Honestly i think this will be the last generation with physical disc games, so maybe that’s why they just basically repeated the PS4 covers

      I like the idea of consistency between covers and box size. Like you said, digital is taking over and having those PS4 games (with backwards compatible upgrades) lined up with PS5 versions is going to look NEAT.

      Imagine a memory card future, with today’s tech it’s really cheap to make a 200GB SD Card…. And with SSD’s being used in consoles, I think it’ll be much easier to make media read from SD cards to SSD, not to mention the space saved for not having a clunky optical drive.

        Maybe with the PS6 that could be possiblity as it would eliminate the need for multiple discs but as sony is a part of the BDA , that chance is slim
