The Future of Gaming: Sony unveils PlayStation 5 and PlayStation Digital Edition

Sony has officially revealed the design of the PlayStation 5 along with a ton of new games at “The Future of Gaming” event. The PS5 console features a white and black finish with a futuristic design. The new finish matches the new DualSense controller, which was unveiled earlier this year.

Sony is launching the new PlayStation 5 in two models, a standard model with a 4K Blu-ray drive and a Digital Edition without an optical drive. While both models more-or-less look the same, the PS5 Digital Edition is thinner, primarily due to the lack of an optical drive. The Digital Edition should also be cheaper as it ditches the optical drive.

Sony’s PS5 can be placed vertically or horizontally; the stand is built to work in both orientations. The PlayStation 5 appears to have vents of the top for heat dissipation.

There are a couple of USB ports on the front of the console. Sony also revealed a ton of accessories alongside the PS5, including – a DualSense charging station, a new HD camera, a Pulse 3D wireless headset, and a media remote.
