SONY has already unveiled two slick, white PlayStation 5 models – but a top-secret third version may be in the works.
An image of a stunning black-and-red PS5 has turned up online, and may be an official Sony document.
The next-gen console was announced earlier this year in two versions.
There’s the PS5 proper, and a second, cheaper version with no disc tray.
Both models come in white, but there’s increasing speculation that a more traditional black version on the way.
A post to gaming fan site ResetEra seemingly reveals Sony marketing materials showing off a new PlayStation model.
The image, posted by user BarrBarr, looks like a poster advertising several Sony products – including a camera, earbuds and the Sony Xperia 1 II smartphone.
But the image also depicts a PlayStation 5 in a brand new colour pattern: black and red.
“Not sure where to post this,” BarrBarr’s post read.
“But at work we have just received a promo picture that shows a black and red PS5.”
The console is largely dark with a red trim, in contrast to the white-and-blue PS5.
Sony hasn’t confirmed that any such console edition exists.
And it’s entirely possible that the photo is a total hoax.
But PlayStation’s design boss Matt MacLauri previously said gamers can “count on even more beautiful (and hopefully radical) special editions” going forward.
