    Does choice of colour include special/limited editions? Seems a no-brainer it'll be black, but I wouldn't want to lose the poll and suffer a lifetime of shame for guessing wrong if there are five blue-and-gold PS5's made as launch prizes and that counts as a colour option.

    I'm never been as less certain about a new console, 50/50 it's black but I can see Sony deciding to do something different. I do predict there will only be one colour at launch, whatever that colour is.

    The question is not what colour the PS5 will be, it's which black will it be? Black hole black? Black Panther black? AK47 black?

    Sony know their box has to fit in with every room. They can't be too outrageous, meaning the options are black, grey, or white. Grey hasn't been popular for CE devices since the 90s. White is in but doesn't suit every room. Black works everywhere. Ergo, it's black, only to be differentiated by trimming, highlights, and lights, for exactly the same reasons PS2 was black, PS3 was black, and PS4 is black. I also expect matte because people don't like the finger-prints showing up on glossy surfaces as happened with PS3 - makes it look worn in a way a matte finish never does.

    I feel you have done more to market this game than the team who developed it! :yes:

    Personally I cannot wait to play Life of Black Tiger in 8K/120fps on PS5. What a gem.

    And possibly the first time that a group of people on the internet have ever agreed.

    EVER!

    In photos yes, but 5 seconds after handling it revealed it was a device to perpetually capture and display your finger prints.

    black to the future?

    seriously, its probably "charcoal black" or something like that that easy to read and understand. Unlike paint color names.

    Need another poll for the color of the led. This poll wasn't contentious enough.

    It'll probably be more about 8k/cinematic 24 fps. ;) Critics will rave about how the cinematic feel elevates it to another level.
