Just a month before the launch of the PS5 Sony joins hands with American fast-food restaurant chain Burger King to tease the UI reveal date of their upcoming next-gen console and also gives a taste of the PS5’s startup sound.
The PlayStation 5 is Sony’s upcoming video gaming console, and the Japanese conglomerate seems to leave no stone unturned to hype up its worldwide release next month.
Recently, Sony collaborated with Burger King aka ‘BK’ for an ad campaign to showcase a taste of what the PS5 UI will be like and also hints the upcoming console’s startup sound.
Burger King mascot reveals PS5 startup sound
In the short clip posted on BK’s official Twitter handle captioned “do Whopper sandwiches normally do this?”, the company mascot ‘The King’ himself is seen inside the kitchen, opening up and looking into a Burger King parcel.
The inside of the parcel lights up blue and plays a sound, hinted to be similar to how the PS5 will startup. The King looks inside the parcel for a second time and at the end of the clip, the numbers ’10/15′ appear, which suggests Sony will officially reveal the PS5 UI on 15th November.
The 15-second clip has sent the netizens into excitement, as the clip soon went viral all over Twitter, which has gathered over 2.4 million views.
Check out the clip below, which was retweeted by PlayStation’s official Twitter handle.
