Is The Medium coming to PlayStation 5? Well, developer Bloober Team was recently asked this very question, and it predictably declined to say either way. However, as the game arrives on Xbox Series consoles today, it seems a packaging faux pas has given us a bit of a clue.
Twitch streamers are receiving special, Medium-themed Xbox controllers, and while they look pretty good, you should also pay attention to the box they arrive in. Below are a couple of tweets from influencers who have the fancy pad — take a look at the top of the packaging:

As you can see, PlayStation’s iconic, er, icons are clearly visible up there.
That’s a bit of a strange choice of branding for your custom Xbox controller, isn’t it?
We’re not sure if this is a simple printing error or some sort, or if it means a PS5 port of The Medium is around the corner. Either way, it’s quite amusing. Do you want to see this horror game haunt PS5 in the future? Tell us in the comments section below.
