Playstation 5: Sony has officially unveiled the next generation Playstation 5 console on 11th June 2020. The reveal event was amazing as we got to see the Playstation 5 console for the first time. However, the price and the release date have been kept under wraps by Sony. That’s a bummer if you ask me! I mean a 90-minute presentation should include price and release date of the console. Sadly, Sony hasn’t revealed any details regarding the cost and the release date.
So let’s dig into the details regarding what we can expect in terms of design, hardware, and the specs of the upcoming console.
Sony Unveils Playstation 5 And Its Digital Edition Hardware
PlayStation 5 has been the talk of the town ever since its announcement. There has been a lot of hype build in terms of the next-generation console. And now, Sony has officially unveiled the next-generation console and the PS5’s digital edition hardware. After months of delay, Sony has announced two different versions of the consoles. One is the standard version with the disk drive on the bottom right-hand side. And the second is the digital version which does NOT have a disk drive.
Playstation 5 Design
PlayStation 5 has a completely futuristic design which completely differentiates it from the upcoming Xbox Series X. The Sony PlayStation 5 comes in a strikingly modern white and black case and both an All Digital version and disc version. The console has a sleek, vertical design with white panels on both sides.
The centre portion has something that looks like a standard USB-A and USB-C port on the front. It also has blue LED lighting and vents along the top curve. The Digital Edition is thinner with a more symmetric design, whereas the standard version is bulkier and awkwardly proportioned.
