After months of speculations, Sony has finally taken the cover off from its upcoming PlayStation 5. At the online PS5 event, Sony unveiled its next-generation console, the PlayStation 5. Actually, it unveiled two of them, a standard edition and a digital edition with no optical drive.
Just like the Xbox Series X, the new PlayStation 5 is designed to stand vertically. It has a sleek design having white panels on either side sandwiching a curved black interior. The center portion of the hardware is having a standard USB-A and a USB-C port on the front along with blue LED lighting and vents along the top curve. As of now, the back panel of the console is still a mystery for us.
The PS5 features a futuristic design that looks like a futuristic architectural design for a new-age skyscraper, thanks to the curves and those protruding wings at the top. However, the most notable thing was two different models of PS5.
The two consoles are marked by the lack of the 4K UHD Blu-ray drive on the Digital Edition. This model is thinner and has a more symmetric design while the standard edition is bulkier and somewhat more awkwardly proportioned.
“The PS5 gameplay experience will be the same, so the choice is all yours. While there are some slight differences in the look of each model, for the overall design, we wanted to deliver a console that’s bold, stunning, and unlike any previous generation of PlayStation,” Sony added.
Sony also showcased a range of accessories for the new consoles. We have already seen the DualSense Wireless controllers that feature haptic feedback and a built-in microphone. There will also be a Charging Station for charging two DualSense controllers simultaneously, an HD Camera for possible motion tracking, a new Pulse 3D Wireless Headset, and finally, a Media Remote for using the console as a Blu-ray player and streaming box.
The PS5 is scheduled to launch in late 2020 worldwide
