The PlayStation 5 is set to launch November 12. But when it was first unveiled back in June, after months of speculation and teases, its design caused quite a stir.
It's a tall, asymmetrical console with a black and white color scheme — a pretty major departure from the last several generations of PlayStation consoles.
The PS5 is unique looking to say the very least and reactions to its design have been divided. The look has been widely compared to an internet router, and memes began circulating widely soon after its reveal on June 11.
But in all the conversation about the PlayStation 5's design, one neat little detail has been overlooked:
In the video revealing the new PlayStation console, you can see tiny little PlayStation symbols providing texture.
Here's a closer look:
We're talking, of course, about Sony's now iconic triangle/circle/cross/square symbols — the same symbols that Sony has used since the original PlayStation.
Here's another closeup of the PlayStation's new DualSense controller, seen in person on a review unit sent by Sony to Business Insider.
The symbols were spotted by at least one Twitter user on the new PlayStation 5 gamepad, the DualSense, after the trailer debuted, and we've since confirmed the detail with a review unit sent by Sony.
The trademark PlayStation texture also appears across several PlayStation 5 accessories, from the new HD camera to the gamepad charging dock.
