The PlayStation 5 was revealed today at The Future of Gaming Show. Sony has given us some insights into the PlayStation 5 Variants, its additional components, and looks.

PlayStation 5 Variants & Additional’s

The PlayStation 5 will come in two variants. The one without the Ultra HD Blu-ray disc Drive is the Digital Version, which might be a bit expensive. On the other hand, the one with CD Drive is being described as the base version. There won’t be any performance difference in both Consoles.

“At launch, we will offer two options: a PlayStation®5 console with an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive and a PlayStation®5 Digital Edition without a disc drive. The PS5 gameplay experience will be the same, so the choice is all yours. While there are some slight differences in the look of each model, for the overall design, we wanted to deliver a console that’s bold, stunning, and unlike any previous generation of PlayStation.”

Moreover, the PlayStation 5 will have various components, that includes

  • Dual sense Charging Station.
  • HD Camera (for Streaming?)
  • Pulse 3D Wireless Headset.
  • Media Remote.
