The cat’s finally out of the bag
After teasing about the PlayStation 5’s internals and the all-new DualSense Controller, Sony officially revealed the final design of the console itself. To launch in two versions—one with a BluRay DVD drive and one without any optical drive—the PlayStation 5 goes for an edgier, vertical design with white panels on either side, and a curved black design in between. There are two “fins” on top of the console, with openings for ventilation and blue LED lighting. The front panel comes with what appears to be a USB-A and a USB-C port. While both versions share the same design, the Digital Edition has a slimmer overall build.
Aside from the console, Sony revealed some of the PlayStation 5’s accessories. These include a DualSense charging station, a media remote, HD webcam, and 3D Sense wireless headset—all dressed in white and black.
At the online conference, Sony also revealed an initial list of games coming to the PlayStation 5 like Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Horizon Forbidden West, Gran Turismo 7, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Resident Evil Village, NBA 2K21, Deathloop, and Hitman III. GTA V is getting several upgrades like additional content, technical improvements, visual upgrades, and performance enhancements when it becomes available on the PlayStation 5 by the second half of 2021.
The PlayStation 5 will be available by the end of 2020.
