While the PS5 has proven immensely popular with gamers (as anyone who has tried and failed to get hold of one will attest), it hasn't fared quite as well with designers. From the gargantuan console itself to the clunky DualSense controller, the new generation of gaming ain't pretty. But it seems it could be worse. Much worse. McWorse.

Not only has the fast food chain clarified that the image was released accidentally, but Sony has also confirmed that it isn't, er, lovin' it. (Happy with plain old white? Here's where to buy a PS5).
