Redesigned Sony gaming consoles are speculated for the 2026 release.
When it comes to gaming, few things beat the thrill of an exciting new console release. The hype, the pre-orders, the midnight releases – it’s almost enough to make a gamer’s head spin. The ones who are lucky enough to get their hands on the latest gaming consoles feel like they’ve won the lottery – and the rest of us have to be satisfied with the knowledge that our turn will come.
It has been quite a while since the PlayStation 2 came out and took the gaming world by storm. Over the years, the PS2 has undergone several different iterations – all of which have been met with great anticipation and fanfare. The latest incarnation of the PS2 – the Slimline, is the perfect recipe for the upcoming Sony gaming console speculated for release in 2026.
Sony’s iconic game console is widely praised for its timeless design, although it has not faded over the years. This prompted product designer Mirko Romanelli to reshape the PS2 Slimline but rather than create something entirely new, he decided to keep the original PS2’s form, and update it with a more modern interpretation. Therefore, the updated console is more compact and can be placed vertically or horizontally according to the available space and user preferences. (Via)
