Sony Playstation 5 revealed by Sony, Sony PS5 coming in two models, one with Blue-Ray disk and one download only console. Fans are super impressed with the design and excited with the specs.
Sony unveiled the new Playstation 5 and debuted a bunch of PS5 game trailers, including Resident Evil 8, Horizon Forbidden West, Gran Turismo 7, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and more.
Noticeably are blue lights emitting from the vents at the top for heat dissipation, the USB ports (standard UBS & USB C) in the front of the console, a power and eject soft touch buttons flushed into the body of the console and the playstation logo at the top corner of the console.
No idea what the back looks like as this was not shown in the big reveal.
Physically the digital download version of the PS5 looks a hair tinnier than the blue ray version. The console can placed horizontally or vertically. In terms of color sony has gone with the single two tone black on the side and all white on the outside of the console. I’m not sure how the console would look after a couple of months gathering dust around the house but I personally think the colors are classy and beautiful.
It looks like Microsoft STADIA now has a competitor in the Sony PS5 Digital version where gamers do not have to buy hard copies of the games they want to play.
We even got to see what the accessories look like. The next-generation PS5 will arrive later this year during the holidays.
The DualSense™ wireless controller for PS5 offers immersive haptic feedback1, dynamic adaptive triggers1 and a built-in microphone, integrated speakers, headset jack, Touchpad, all integrated into an iconic design.
Dual sense charging station – obviously to charge both console controllers which is very handy.
New HD Camera as well for quality high resolution camera with the ability to support 8K game play. I’m not sure who has an 8K television but this would be interesting to say the least. On the plus side the console can support 4K gaming at a 120 hertz

So we still have Questions unanswered like what the back looks like, how much its going cost and what gaming is really sounds like, Will it come in other colours besides the two tone black and white.
Sony has kept a tight lip over the price(s) of the new consoles, leaving Gamers guessing and also we do not yet know when the consoles will be released. At the moment according to Sony’s website we are told the consoles will be available during the holiday season.
