Sony PlayStation 5 design is here!
Before moving on to the PlayStation 5 features, we would like to point out that you are disappointed. The disappointment is not the device itself, but the lack of shared information. Because Sony showed new games during the event, with the PlayStation 5 design, a few minutes before the closing, and ended the event. Many issues that are expected to be clarified from their features to the price still remain unclear.
PlayStation 5 has a vertical design that uses black and white colors in harmony with the new controller DualSense. While Sony has preferred the horizontal design in all game consoles so far, it is not known why such a decision has been made, but there are two different models.
In addition to the standard model, PlayStation 5, the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition model appears. The Digital Edition does not have any optical drives, as the name suggests, and the only way to install games is to download them from the internet.
The standard model has a 4K Blu-ray drive. Since there is no optical drive in the Digital Edition, it is expected to be thinner and cheaper in price. However, as we have stated above, the prices have not been announced yet.
In addition to the new game console, several accessories were announced, including the DualSense charging station, a new HD camera, Pulse 3D wireless headphones and remote control. While the ventilation holes of the PlayStation 5 can be seen easily from the front, there is a USB-C port in addition to the standard USB.
