Sony has finally unveiled the first look at the PlayStation 5 console and... it sure is curvy. And white. A real futuristic-looking piece of kit, that's for sure. The actual look of the next-gen hardware has been shrouded in secrecy for months now, but the grand reveal finally came at the end of Sony's PlayStation Future Of Gaming Event.
You know what? You don't really need to hear from me. Take a look at it for yourself in all its glory, right next to the new DualSense controller. Which of course we've already known about for some time now.
So what do you think? it's certainly kind of a departure from the PlayStation 4, which was a lot more... angular. But at the same time, it still has that sleek vibe that screams "PlayStation". I dig it.
Sony also confirmed a handful of features for the new console - most of which we've already known about for some time. The console packs a 4K UHD Blu-Ray drive, custom AMD GPU, and very impressive SSD that's said to massively reduce loading times. The console also comes with an impressive 10.28 Teraflops of GPU power, which is just shy of the Xbox Series X's 12 Teraflops.
What we didn't know before was that the PlayStation 5 will come in both disc and digital-only models. This isn't much a surprise, given that we seem to be heading towards a disc-less future, but it's cool that Sony gave us the option here.
Unfortunately, we still have no idea exactly how much the console will cost, which is... a shame. We can probably assume the model without a disc-drive will cost a little bit less, but until we hear official word from Sony on pricing we have no way of knowing for sure. Still, we now know exactly what the PlayStation 5 looks like after a very long road. One step at a time, I guess.
