Also, there are many new games, the new games include a Horizon Zero Dawn sequel, a Demon’s Souls remake, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and much more to come.
The PlayStation 5 looks very different and nothing like the PS 4, or the PS3. In fact, its curved design and color scheme have more in common with the original PlayStation than any recent versions. A curvy mixture of white and black plastics with blue highlight lighting with a black stand, which makes it different from the ‘black box’ designs of previous PlayStation consoles.
As there are two editions, the PlayStation standard edition has a 4K Blu-ray disc drive, and the PS5 Digital Edition is slimmer and disc-free. The consoles themselves feature a slick and modern design which will make it hard to choose between them. Both the consoles have USB-C charging for their DualSense Wireless Controllers and can make use of a new PS5 PULSE 3D wireless headset, media remote, and alongside an HD camera accessory.
