Only yesterday, Sony announced their new Console of PlayStation 5 and i am going to dive deeper on the PlayStation 5 Specifications and estimated release date.


Black and now its white

The theme of the PlayStation 5 is now white instead of the usual black color from the PlayStation 2, 3 and 4 consoles. The PlayStation 5 depicts its new slick feature black hardware in the middle warmly coated with its white skin. The controller also follows the same theme as the console itself. Black followed by its white icing coat but it has a light blue waving around the touch pad defining that the future is now and it is time to grasp said future.

PlayStation 5 and its Digital edition

Although hard to notice at first. At the end of the trailer You notice there are 2 consoles laid out in front of you. Only different between those 2 are that one has a disk port while the other one does not. That’s because there a standard edition with a 4K Blu-Ray disc drive, and a slimmer, disc-free Digital Edition.

Sony seems like they are slowly inching closer to the digital era where players buys games via online services compared to buying a physical copy of the games. This may post some worry to players who likes to purchase and collect their games with its box-art and cover.

Of course. swapping games with friends will be a challenge, or selling second hand. Gaming stores will likely be a little worried by its presence. However, game stores and collectors should be safe for now since PlayStation 5 gives us the option to still purchase hard copy games.
