We’ve known for a while that Sony would be releasing its next-generation console, the PlayStation 5, by the end of 2020, but we didn’t know what it would look it. Yesterday, Sony revealed the PlayStation 5, and it definitely wins the award for most visually striking, compared to the Xbox Series X’s more monolithic look.
In addition to what the console will look like, Sony gave us little more information about the PlayStation 5. It will come in two variants, one with a 4K Blu-ray drive and the only as a purely digital console, and both will be able to stand vertically or horizontally. Sony didn’t share any kind of pricing information, but we can assume that the console without the 4K Blu-ray drive will be the more affordable option. Sony also officially released all specs that will enable the PlayStation to play games in up to 8K resolution (as well as 4K at 120Hz), which you can find on the company’s website.
Maybe most interestingly, Sony also revealed the trailers for several upcoming games that will feature on the PlayStation 5, such as Horizon Forbidden West, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Resident Evil Village and Demon’s Souls. All the trailers can be found on the PlayStation YouTube channel, here.
