Final Design of PlayStation 5:
PS5 is a two-tone black-and-white console with a vertical configuration and sloping white fins that cover a rounded black box.
The console will come in two styles: an asymmetrical PlayStation 5, and an asymmetrical PlayStation 5 Digital Edition ensure to give gaming laptops and PCs a good competition.
The difference between the two is obvious: The former has a disc drive, while the latter will play only digital games. As such, it’s likely that the PS5 Digital Edition will cost less, but it’s not clear how much the price break might be.
Thanks to this mega reveal, the only piece of the PS5 puzzle left now is the price of these two new consoles and a specific launch date.
