While no longer requiring a screwdriver to use the base stand is an improvement, the change is barely even worth mentioning, especially when there are bigger issues to address. Input’s Ryan Houlihan strongly believes the PlayStation 5 sucks, but here are some changes Sony could make to the console to improve it.
The sheer size of the PS5 has become such a talking point that Ikea provides a cardboard cutout replica to see whether the console will fit in media centers. Not to mention, its over-the-top design can clash with the aesthetic of your perfectly decorated room. A slim version would be a win for everyone.
Sony has always released a slim version of its home consoles so the PS5 should be no different. The gap between the standard and slim versions is typically three years, which is a long wait. Fingers crossed Sony releases a slimmer PS5 sooner rather than later.
This last one may sound like a minor gripe, but when you spend $500 on a console, it shouldn’t scratch when you so much as look at it. For some reason, the glossy center panel on the PS5 is a dust magnet and scratches all too easily.
