The system design
The PS5 will launch in two variants. The standard version comes with a built-in 4K Blu-ray disc drive and the Digital Edition leaves the physical media functionality behind. In return, the Digital Edition console sports a slimmer profile "that's bold, stunning, and unlike any previous generation of PlayStation," according to Sony's press materials.
Both console versions come with a couple of USB ports on the front, including one classic Type-A and one updated Type-C plug. Sony didn't make any effort to explain what gamers might want to plug into these ports, and the company also left two anonymous-looking slots on the front unexplained. Either way, the system design is striking in comparison to the boxier PlayStation 4 and Xbox One systems.
Other PS5 news
The launch event didn't add much technical information, but the system unveiling was accompanied by many PS5-exclusive game announcements. Launch titles will include car racing game Gran Turismo 7, superhero saga Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and horror thriller Resident Evil Village. Gamers did get a clearer view of the physical design of the new console and the slate of launch-date game titles.
