Oxford Circus gets a #PS5 upgrade

Transport for London (TfL) has teamed up with Sony to give the Tube station a PS5 upgrade, transforming the Underground signs into squares, triangles and crosses — the classic symbols of the PS5’s Dualsense controller.

The 24-hour Oxford Circus makeover is to celebrate the launch of Sony’s PS5 games console in the UK.
