PlayStation, a video game console developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment, has always been Gamers’ favorite console. And all the consoles launched by Sony had been a tremendous success. In addition to this, PlayStation 5 is expected to be launched late in 2020. The lead architect Mark Cerny was the first to reveal the news of the upcoming PlayStation 5 in an interview with Wired Magazine in April 2019. And the launch of this console is most awaited by many.
Finally, Sony launched its official teaser about the upcoming gaming console in Amazon and Flipkart. It is also listed on the official page of Sony. And the listing page confirms that there will be two variants- PlayStation 5 with a disc and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition.
Sony PlayStation 5- Design:
Sony officially confirmed the PS 5 design on June 11, 2020. The PlayStation 5 is being expected to be launched with a standard edition with 4 K Blu-Ray disc drives and a slimmer, disc-free PS5 Digital Edition. The controllers can be charged with a USB-C charger, and the use of HD camera accessory can be made along with the new PS5 wireless headset and media remote.
The PS comes in a dual-tone black and white design with blue LED lights surrounding the air vents. The consoles will come with 16GB DDR6 RAM and 825GB SSD for faster loading speed. In addition to that, the upcoming PlayStation 5 will be powered by AMD Zen 2-based CPU. PS 3’s custom hardware was a difficult element for the developers. So Sony has planned to make sure that PS 5 is developer-friendly.
The upcoming gaming console allows the user to install individual game modes rather than installing the entire game. The home screen of PlayStation 5 will display the Gamers’ mission details and even shows if friends who are active online. The developer company has already announced that the DualSense Controller charging station, a media remote, an HD camera, and Pulse 3D Wireless Headset will be sold separately.
