the new SONY PlayStation 5 console presents an aesthetic distance from its predecessor. compared to the black, squared PS4, the PS5 is white, asymmetrical (only the disc drive version) and features a curvy, streamlined appearance. in fact, the design matches that of the previously presented DualSense controller which features haptic feedback, adaptive triggers and a built-in mic. as for the console, the specs are equally impressive: AMD zen 2-based CPU with 8 core at 3.5GHz, 16GB of GDDR6 memory and a custom RDNA 2 AMD GPU with 10.28 TFLOPS of processor.

‘with PlayStation 5, we are making a significant leap to deliver a truly new generation of transformative play experiences that will redefine expectations for what games can be,’ said jim ryan, president and CEO of sony interactive entertainment (SIE). ‘worlds will be richer and more beautiful, they’ll captivate your senses in ways you didn’t think possible, and you’ll be able to experience them much more seamlessly, with lightning fast loading. today’s showcase is just a glimpse of what’s to come in the next generation, and we want to thank our community for taking this journey to PS5’s launch with us.’
