Well, we’re right about one thing – it’s just technically a trick. Because while the PlayStation 5 doesn’t come out until next week, people seem to have already copped the much-awaited gaming console, through Instagram at least.
Thanks to Instagram user @ARoneverything, the AR filter that conjures a fake PS5 box on the surface in front of you has become an overnight sensation on the photo-sharing site. The filter’s creator only has one request: that people use it “ethically and responsibly.”
With everyone anticipating its November 12 release, some gaming outlets are already – and actually – getting their hands on the PS5 in advance treat to see what all the hype is about. Check out how the PS5 fares in your mind by watching these unboxing videos:
As for the rest of us, we still have a week to save up for the PS5. Alternatively, we could just live with our frustrated budgets and settle with this AR filter.
