PlayStation 5 is officially revealed earlier this month. The console design itself is very unique and different from what we used to get in the past generations of PlayStation consoles.

In an interview with Official PlayStation Magazine, VP of engineering at Epic Games, Nick Penwarden, comments on the PlayStation 5’s console and calls it a “masterpiece of systems design.”

“The PlayStation 5 is a masterpiece of systems design,” Penwarden says. “Not only is it driving a huge leap in computing and graphics performance, but it is also revolutionary in terms of storage and data compression technology, unlocking new kinds of games and experiences for players to enjoy.”
