We have been seeing rumours a few PlayStation 5 Professional just about because the PS5 and PS5 Digital Version first launched. Nonetheless, they appear to have ramped up slightly since 2023 began, with some even suggesting we’ll see a brand new machine this yr.
One report even claimed we might see the PS5 Professional introduced in April this yr forward of a launch nearer to Christmas. And whereas that appears unlikely to us, contemplating the PlayStation 4 Professional was introduced in September 2016 a few months earlier than launch, it stands to motive that Sony will need to improve its current machine(s) sooner or later. It additionally has a monitor document of introducing a mid-generation refresh round three years right into a console’s life cycle.
There are actually just a few issues it might do to entice PS5 customers to improve – extra processing energy. a graphics enhance, even cooling programs have every been touted in leaks. What we’ve not heard a lot about thus far although is what it might appear to be.
That is the place designer Latif Ghouali steps in. He has produced some glorious renders of a doable aesthetic for the PS5 Professional. Posted on Yanko Design, his pictures present an angular model of the console that owes a lot to desktop PC fashions from Alienware.

Even the DualSense controller will get a makeover in his idea designs – with much less curves and extra edges. We’ll be sincere although, whereas we are able to get absolutely behind the console form itself, a controller is designed in such a means for consolation and ergonomics. We’re unsure both apply to the controller pictured.
Nonetheless, we are able to dream and are significantly keen on the downlighting Ghouali has added to the underside of his model of the PS5 Professional. It will not look pretty much as good when mendacity flat, in all probability, however would look nice in the event you’re enjoying in a darkened room.
We’ll simply have to attend to see if Sony does announce one thing within the coming months and, in that case, simply how shut this idea will get to the ultimate mannequin. We’ll maintain you posted on all of the hypothesis within the build-up, that is for certain.
