Go disc-less, if that's your thing.

PS5 hardware

Sony Interactive Entertainment has unveiled the PlayStation 5 hardware. It will be available in standard and digital editions.

The standard model will feature an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive, while the digital edition model will ship without a disc drive. While there are some slight differences in the look of each model, they are largely similar in appearance.

“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 Sony Interactive Entertainment president Jim Ryan in a press release. “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.”
