The PlayStation 5 Revealed - TWO consoles, vertical and horizontal orientations and new peripherals also revealedPlatforms: Sony PlayStation 5
Sony have unveiled the look of the PlayStation 5 at the end of tonight's presentation and it defies all expectation with TWO consoles coming - the PlayStation 5 and the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition - the latter of which will be disc-less supporting digital downloads only.
The new consoles are sleek featuring smooth lines and perfectly match the new DualSense controller - which when seen in context looks beautiful.
In addition to the consoles a new headset, media remote and PlayStation Eye camera were also shown.
While the consoles were shown in vertical orientation in the video we believe they can also be used horizontally and the stand at the bottom will support the console either way.
