Today was Sony's big PS5 games event, and the company also took the opportunity to give us our first glimpse at the PlayStation 5 console itself.
The PS5 design is definitely different than most consoles we've seen in the past, eschewing a black box design for something a bit wavier. The top and bottom of the console are white and sandwiched in between them is a black section where the ports are located. The white-and-black design matches the PS5's DualSense controller that Sony revealed a couple months ago.
The Ultra HD Blu-Ray disc drive lives on one of the white portions of the PS5, but Sony also confirmed today that it'll offer a PlayStation 5 Digital Edition without a disc drive.
Because the sides of the PS5 are wavy, you might think that you won't be able to lay the console on its side. Sony offered a brief glimpse of the PlayStation 5 laying down on its side, though, resting on a small base.
Along with the PS5 console itself, Sony gave us a look at some of the new console's accessories as part of today's reveal. They include an HD Camera, a DualSense Charging Station, a Pulse 3D Wireless Headset, and a Media Remote.
One detail that Sony didn't reveal today is price. Presumably the PS5 Digital Edition will be a little cheaper than the model that comes with a disc drive, but we'll have to wait a bit longer before we know how much the PS5 and its accessories will cost.
Sony will launch the PlayStation 5 this holiday season.
