After many months of waiting, Sony finally took the floor to unveil the first PlayStation 5 games, but also, and especially the design of the PS5 console.

PS5 arrives in late 2020

After a nice one-hour conference, Sony closes the show with the reveal of the design of the PlayStation 5. It’s the end of the suspense, the PS5 console is black and white like the famous DualSense which was unveiled in April 2020. The little surprise? It is that there will not be one, but two PS5 consoles at launch.

Scheduled for the end of 2020, the PS5 console is revealed in two elegant futuristic white dresses with a black body in the center of these. A console that is directly inspired by the DualSense controller. The little extra? Blue lighting on the sides of the console that make everything very classy. The PS5 console can be positioned upright (vertically) or lying down (horizontally).

While for many years rumors have been announcing two Xbox consoles for the new generation, it is finally Sony that surprises everyone with two consoles. For the moment, no difference in power. However, the second console will be a “Digital” edition. A version without 4K Ultra HD disc player that will logically have a lower price. It is very curious to see Sony moving towards this strategy. Is the firm in the process of moving towards an alternative solution to the Xbox Game Pass to offer a very advantageous subscription system to highlight dematerialized games? Case to follow.

The sound on PS5 will be something pretty incredible according to Sony. So, logically, a Pulse 3D headset will also be offered when the PS5 console is released. A very elegant helmet that takes up the design of the console and the controller.

Sony has already announced it, PS4 accessories will be backward compatible on PS5. Thus, the PlayStation VR headset will be compatible. And even if the PS Camera should be, Sony will offer a new version of the latter again in line with the PS5 console and the controller. Clean and elegant black and white design.

Finally, a remote control will also be available when the PS5 console is launched. This seems to indicate that the PS5 will be very oriented towards streaming services and applications. For the moment, Sony has not detailed the characteristics of this accessory.

New information should be revealed in the coming weeks around the PS5 and its universe, but also around its games. The console is still scheduled for the end of 2020.
