Sony unveiled the design of the PlayStation 5 game console on Thursday.
The PS5 was unveiled at the end of a video stream where Sony and its partners mainly talked about new games that will finally be launched for the console but, at the end of the event, showed their new game console for the first time.
Sony introduced two versions of the console, including a standard “PlayStation 5” and another “PlayStation 5 Digital Edition” that does not have a disc drive. This suggests that it will only have one hard drive to store the games, and it may cost less than the other version.
Sony has not talked about a price or release date for the console, except to say that it will happen later this year.
But Sony revealed the technical specifications for the PS5 earlier this year. The console will run on an eight-core AMD Zen 2 processor. Sony also announced Thursday that it will sell several accessories for the new PS5, including a wireless headset with 3D audio support, an HD camera so that players can stream while playing, a special multimedia remote control to navigate the PS5 menu and a DualSense charge. to power the controllers.
Sony also hasn’t announced a price or release date for the accessories, but it’s safe to assume that they’ll be launched at the same time as the main console.
Sony has also revealed some of the games that will arrive on PS5 this year and next year.
The PlayStation 5 will compete directly with Microsoft’s Xbox Series X, which will also launch later this year.
