Sony finally reveals PlayStation 5 console

Sony has revealed the design of the PlayStation 5 console, and it isn’t taking any inspiration from the Xbox Series X.
Sony finally reveals PlayStation 5 console

Sony has finally debuted the PlayStation 5 console, showcasing a new sleek look. 

The company unveiled the console at the end of their PS5 showcase event, where it also showed off an abundance of accessories. 

Alongside the console itself and DualSense controller, Sony showed off a charging station for the controller, a HD camera, a wireless headset and media remote.

The PS5 console will launch in two options - a standard model with an Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc drive, and a digital model without a disc drive. 

Sony stated in a press release pricing and additional details for the PlayStation 5 will arrive at a later date. 

While there's lots of nooks and crannies which look like dust traps, the design itself is much more visually striking than Sony's past consoles, which have largely just looked like dry slabs to shove under the TV. 

The big question is how much the PS5 will cost, with a leaked Amazon listing this week showing something in the £599.99 range - although it's believed that was a mistake. 

Elsewhere in the presentation, trailers for a new Spider-Man title, Ratchet and Clank, Hitman 3 and Resident Evil 8 were shown off too.
