The PlayStation 5 is a massive console that stands out with its flamboyant design. The packaging and box are austere and unceremonious, contrasting with the console itself. The PS5 is made up of four separate pieces, with a glossy black case sandwiched between two matte white plastic plates. The irregular curves and overhanging plastic corners make it look a bit bulky and out of place among sleek and simple tech. The console has various ports and buttons on the front and back, including an Ultra HD Blu-ray optical drive and several USB ports. The stand is necessary for proper positioning, and it can be attached or removed depending on how the user wants to place the console.
