Does... The Burger King Have the PS5?
After a tease from PlayStation and Burger King, it seems like the fast-food mascot has his hands on Son'y upcoming console.
We’re about a month away from the release of the Xbox Series X | S and the PlayStation 5, and press, influencers and even a few celebrities across the board are beginning to get their hands on early versions of the consoles. While Xbox has sent out more units to press and influencers, Sony has seemingly taken a more influence-driven approach, favoring celebrities like Travis Scott, and now, The Burger King.
About half an hour ago, the official Burger King Twitter account tweeted a video of the company’s (somewhat creepy) mascot, the Burger King, opening a bag from the fast-food restaurant with a blue glow shining out of the bag with a short jingle playing before he packs it back up and the video displays the date 10/15

Based on everything we can tell, the Burger King just delivered us our first official taste of the PlayStation 5 UI, with what is presumably, its startup noise. While there’s not much else to go off of, this is likely a tease for an announcement of just what exactly the PS5 UI looks like, which would be par for the course for gaming marketing in 2020. Outside of a couple potentially leaked videos, Sony and PlayStation have kept details about their console’s user interface surprisingly hush, which is either promising or worrying, depending on whether or not you liked the PS4 UI.
Or, it could be a surprise announcement for a sequel to the infamous Xbox-exclusive licensed game, Sneak King? If so, announcing it as a PlayStation exclusive as a cute little jab at Xbox would be downright hilarious.
