Sony has finally revealed how the next-generation PlayStation 5 console will look like. Unexpectedly for many, the PlayStation will be made in predominantly white color with a black insert in the middle. The color theme of the gamepad matches the design of the console.
PS5 can be placed both vertically and horizontally. The appearance of the PS5 is quite unusual, especially considering the conservative design of its closest competitor, Xbox Series S, which is a black box.
There would be two versions of PS5 — one is with a 4K Blu-ray drive, and the second one is without, it’s designed only for games in a digital format. The second one looks much narrower due to the lack of a drive.
Besides, as part of the presentation, Sony introduced a wireless headset, HD camera, and remote control, made in the same style.
The cost of the PlayStation 5 has not yet been disclosed, but insiders claim that its price will be about $ 450. This is unofficial information, so you need to wait for the announcement from Sony.
An important part of the event was the announcements of games that will be available for PlayStation 5. For example, on PS5 there will be a remaster of the super-popular game from Rockstar GTA V, the release of which is scheduled for 2021. Also, GTA Online will be free for all PS5 owners for the first three months.
However, most viewers of the presentation were more interested in new games. PS5 will include a sequel of Horizon Zero Dawn, which is called Horizon: Forbidden West. He will tell the continuation of the story of a girl named Eloy, who is trying to save life on Earth.
New racing simulator Gran Turismo 7 was announced at the presentation as well. There would be also a continuation of Resident Evil and Assassin’s Creed. In the presentation, Sony showed the trailer for the upcoming GhostWire: Tokyo. The game will probably be released next year.
Besides, on PS5 there will be a new game about Spider-Man in the person of Miles Morales, which is called Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Not only this all — but the final part of the trilogy about the silent killer Hitman III, a basketball simulator from 2K NBA 2K21, an action called Pragmata, exclusives Project Athia, Oddworld Soulstorm, Little Devil Inside and Returnal, as well as a remake of Demon Souls.
The previous Sony PlayStation 4 console became the most popular console of its generation — it has sold over 100 million devices since the start of sales in November 2013. Now the PlayStation 5 needs to try to update the record by competing with the Xbox Series X, which is also slated for release at the end of the year.
