Finally, Sony's PS5 Has Been Revealed, Look And Specifications

After months of slowly dropping information, Sony has finally revealed the PlayStation 5 in a livestream event earlier today. Here's what it looks like.

Finally, the wait is over, Sony has revealed the PlayStation 5, its look and specifications. The PS5 console features white and black colors to match the look of the new controller.

About the look, the PS5 stands vertically and comes in two versions: a 4K Blu-ray drive and a Digital Edition. The Digital Edition looks much thinner than the 4K Blu-ray variant for not sporting the drive.

With the absence of the drive, the PS5 Digital Edition will also come at a lower price though Sony hasn’t revealed pricing yet. During the livestream, the tech giant only mention the design and didn’t provide a firm release date or price tags for either of the PS5 variants.

Like with the Xbox Series X, you can the PlayStation 5 horizontally or vertically. The stand is built to work in both orientations and it seems that the Digital Edition has a different stand. At the top of the PS5, there are vents for dissipating heat, along with USB-C and USB-A ports at the front.

In addition, Sony has made several accessories to be used with the PS5, namely a Pulse 3D wireless headset, a new HD camera, as well as a media remote. It’s unclear if the PS5 will be launched alongside the new PS5 consoles.

Sony revealed PS5 hardware months after the Xbox Series X was revealed in December last year.

Over the past months, the Japanese giant has been providing more information on the PS5. The console, which will come out in the holiday season, will be powered by AMD’s custom RDNA 2-based GPU along with AMD’s an octa-core Zen 2 CPU. The custom AMD chips are expected to provide 10.28 TFLOPS of power with variable frequencies on the GPU and CPU.

In addition, Sony is applying a proprietary SSD solution for boosting load times in gaming. It will offer 825GB storage along with 5.5GB/s of performance. To make the most of the read speed, the company is requiring all games to be installed to the internal SSD.

On April 7, Sony announced the DualSense controller for the PS5. The device comes with haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, and a new create button designed for sharing gameplay content. It will still sport the buttons and the D-pad on the top half while there will be two analog sticks on the bottom. Also, the DualSense will feature a touchpad at the center and a redesigned light bar on both sides of the touchpad.

Finally, the PS5 will support over 4,000 PS4 titles.
