One of the characteristics that has always characterized PlayStaiton since its first version, were its characteristic colors. The four action buttons and their colors became an iconic hallmark of the console and the brand. Now then, they have just revealed that the new PS5 will not have these classic signature colors, as they have detailed, it is because a more “universal” design was sought.
This was revealed by Yujin Morisawa, designer of the console during an interview with the Washington Post. In this interview, the designer spoke about the conception of the design of the new PS5, as well as his new controller. As he revealed, the decision he made was due to the fact that they sought to simplify their concept, as well as make them more universal.
“I wanted to simplify it and make it universal. The form already shows which button it is. You don’t really need a color for the buttons, so I made it one shade, “he said.
