Fresh off the reveal of PlayStation 5’s futuristic console design, a Sony executive has opened up about “surprising” features that players won’t expect.

After months of anticipation, Sony finally lifted the curtain that gave players their first look at the PS5 console on June 11. While the hardware’s striking design left fans stunned, an executive for the company says there is more to it than meets the eye.

PlayStation’s Head of Global Marketing, Eric Lempel, followed up the event with an interview, and detailed his thoughts on the next-gen device’s unique design. He also revealed it has more features to it that we have not yet seen.

PS5 has “surprising” features

Following the PlayStation 5 rollout event, the Sony executive sat down for an official podcast for the company where he dished out details about the console. Lempel revealed that fans will be amazed.

“And while I think everybody got a good view today, with all the shots you saw in the show, when you see this thing in person, there are a lot of nice, surprising features. It’s just something to look at. It’s gorgeous, it’s just a marvel,” he said.

The Sony employee further gave his thoughts on the company’s departure from a more traditional box design, and explained the reasoning behind the futuristic look they went with for the PS5.

“It’s a departure from anything we’ve done before, but something really special. This is the piece of hardware that really represents the expansive worlds that you’re going to jump into when you use PlayStation 5,” he continued.

Unfortunately, Lempel didn’t explain further as to what he meant by “surprising features,” which makes sense given that the event was geared more towards the games that will appear on the platform.

The PS5 launch seems to be shaping up to be an epic one. From Spider-Man: Miles Morales, to the wildly anticipated Demon Souls Remake, the next generation of gaming is finally almost here.

At the time of writing, the console has no concrete release date or even a price so far. Although the Japanese publisher states that it will be hitting stores in Holiday 2020.

Popular Twitch streamer its_iron was stunned after he managed to pick up an extremely lucky win during his Warzone broadcast, despite dying in the final 1v1 duel for the victory.

Picking up wins in Call of Duty’s battle royale, Warzone, can prove to be quite challenging for even the best of players, as you have to outlast 150 players in a single match to come out on top.

However, one Warzone streamer its_iron managed to pick up a bizarre victory, even surprising himself after somehow winning the battle royale match when he had been downed by his final opponent.

During his November 27 Warzone broadcast, Its_iron had attempted to run the final player over with his cargo truck, but they had managed to explode the vehicle just in time with an airstrike killstreak, downing the streamer’s character in the process.

With the opponent running towards him to confirm the kill, the streamer had already admitted defeat and began praising the player for his clever tactic to counter his idea. “What a play, good stuff,” he admitted, thinking he had lost the Warzone match, “I can’t even be upset that at that one, heck of a play.”

However, as the Twitch streamer had picked up a self-revive Kit earlier in the game, the game did not end when he went down, and he was shocked to realize that he had actually won the game when he looked back at his screen.

“I never even saw him call in the [airstrike] either” he added, before reading his chat and discovering he picked up the win, “I won? No…he killed himself with the airstrike?”

Despite securing the win, the streamer revealed he did not feel as if he had earned it, adding that the other player had deserved it instead. “I feel bad, that’s unfortunate. I don’t feel like I won that,” he said.

While the airstrike initially worked well against the streamer, his final opponent was likely unaware of the second bombing run and eager to secure the kill before its_iron could use his self-revive to get back in the fight.
