PS5 Console Design and Peripherals
Last night we saw the PS5 for the first time, Sony has chosen a futuristic design for this console and it looks amazing.
There will be two versions available a standard console with a UHD Blu-Ray drive and the digital edition. The latter has a slightly slimmer look due to the lack of the drive, with both looking equally impressive.
A wide selection of games gave us a tantalizing demonstration of the PS5 capabilities, with many franchises we all love having updates, or new titles. These included Demon’s Souls, Gran Turismo 7, Sackboy A Big Adventure, Horizon II – Forbidden West, Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart, Spider-Man Miles Morales and many more.
The new DualSense controller was again on display with mention of the Haptic feedback and Adaptive triggers, offering new ways to interact with your games.
To complete the gaming experience Sony will be releasing peripherals to complement the PS5. There is an HD camera, media remote, dual controller charging station and headphones with support for 3D audio.
