The PlayStation 5 console design was revealed by Sony at the end of a packed PS5 reveal event that was streamed today to millions of people around the world today.

Big announcements from the PS5 reveal event include sequels to PS4 hits Horizon Zero Dawn and Marvel’s Spider-Man.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be coming to the PS5 this year while Horizon Forbidden West does not have a confirmed release window.

The PS5 reveal event also announced Gran Turismo 7, the much rumoured Demon’s Souls remake and Resident Evil 8.

The latter will be out on the PS5 in 2021.

In a blog post Sid Shuman, senior director at SIE Content Communications, spoke a bit more about the PS5 design following its big reveal.

Shuman said: “Today was an exciting day for gamers around the world, as the PlayStation 5 showcase granted us our first look at PS5 games under development… and culminated with the reveal of the PS5 system itself.

“Actually, two PS5 systems.

“At PS5’s 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.”
