Sony just revealed its PS5 console: Here’s what we know

At his Future of Gaming event, Sony gave viewers a preview of the new PlayStation 5 console on Thursday. The company showed PS5 coming soon at the end of the event next to the new DualSense controller that we debuted in April. Sony also presented a suite of equipment such as an HD camera, a controller charging station remote control, and Pulse 3D wireless headphones. It is unclear at this time whether the equipment is provided or optional to add.

Here is the new PlayStation 5.

The new PS5, which was also shown lying on its side, is a futuristic white with a black finish and blue reflections.

The next-generation console will have two versions: a standard model with a Blu-ray player and a thinner Digital Edition machine that is not revealed – it relies entirely on downloads and streaming. CNET’s sister site GameSpot said the PS5 uses an SSD as opposed to a hard drive like previous PlayStations, and that game discs will support capacity up to 100 GB.

Although pricing and release dates have yet to be announced, Sony CEO Jim Ryan said the company plans to launch later this year. You can watch the revelation below:

The company discussed new games for the new console, teasing titles like a sequel to Spider-Man, Resident Evil 8, and Horizon Forbidden West. You can watch the trailers for these new games below:

Sony had delayed the event after global protests broke out in response to the murder of an unarmed black man, George Floyd, while in police custody. Sony originally planned to hold its event on June 4 despite the coronavirus pandemic, which closes the annual E3 video game show this year.
