Sony describes the PlayStation 5 as "our most striking console yet." It certainly is striking. All the fan renders and concepts couldn't have prepared us for the final design, which looks very fluid and futuristic. But it also looks extremely memeworhty, as evidenced by the handful of memes we've already seen pop up.

"SIE showed the PS5 hardware for the first time, with its bold, two-tone design marking a radical departure from previous PlayStation consoles," Sony said in a recent press release.

Radical departure is right.

Below we've included some of our favorite current PS5 memes, including the awesome sideways Shellder one.
