Alleged PS5 Slim design bemuses the internet

Rumours about the so-called PS5 Slim have been doing the rounds pretty much since the launch of the PS5 itself. And probably for good reason – the latter is so gargantuan that gamers have been crying out for a more svelte take on the design. But if it looks anything like these new leaked images purporting to show the new console, fans might be disappointed.

Images started circulating this weekend of a new console case, catchily codenamed 'CFI-2016'. And it looks rather a lot like, er, the current PS5. Unlike Sony's previous 'Slim' versions of PlayStation consoles, it seems the PS5 iteration won't be straying far from the original formula. (Don't fancy waiting?
