Sony has revealed PlayStation 5 on Jun 11th. Since then son many have been reviewed. Some say how ugly the new PS5 looks. Well, for about me though I agree with them about half and a half because of PlayStation 5 Standard Edition with Blu-ray drive that does look ugly a little. But the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition that is a real beauty came from heaven for me at least don’t how others feel about it.
YouTube PS5 Hardware Reveal Trailer
The YouTube intro when I first played the video the first thing that came to my mind was Tartarus. Like how it was changing its shape and it’s color between black & blue (batman v superman). Tartarus is the deep abyss that is used as a dungeon of torment and suffering for the wicked and as the prison for the Titans. Then slowly from that abyss emerged the new titan PlayStation 5 with traditional blue lights and new black and white color pattern. It looks so cool & futuristic but the real beauty is PlayStation 5 Digital Edition.
PlayStation 5 is primarily designed to be placed vertically and will include two versions one with a 4k Blu-ray Drive and a pure Digital Edition. The Digital Edition is substantially thinner than the regular model thanks to the removal drive.
The PS5 Digital Edition is expected to be cheaper because of the Blu-ray drive removal. But the prices haven’t been announced yet. Sony simply reveled the design during the live stream. Sony also announced in the PS5 website that they will be launching on holiday 2020. Apart from that, no specific date’s been announced on the exact pricing for the either variants of the PS5.
The PS5 console can be placed horizontally or vertically on the tv table or below the monitor. sony has built a stand that works for either orientation. The top of the PS5 unit has air vents for heat dissipation, with USB-A & USB-C ports on the front.
