After seeing what the devkit PlayStation 5 looked like, this new concept design is much closer to what we would expect from Sony.

The MediaMarkt Saturn concept doesn’t follow the design of the PS3 or PS4, but it is very easy on the eyes, featuring rounded edges and a compact look.

On top of that, there are big openings for fans along the side of the console, as well as sleek edge lighting.

Though the concept design isn’t that exciting in itself, the new Dualshock 5 controllers are a sight for sore eyes.

It follows the same style as the Dualshock 4 but with a twist – the feedback panel that was on the top has been replaced with a touchscreen, for additional functionality.
