Here is what the new PlayStation 5 has to offer

After much delays, Sony Entertainment has finally released its much awaited gaming console, the PlayStation 5

The Sony’s PS5 which should have happened earlier before now was delayed until Thursday due to civil unrest in America that began with protests against the murder of George Floyd.

In a livestream yesterday that was followed by millions of its fans, Sony Interactive Entertainment showed the PS5™ hardware for the first time, with its bold, two-tone design marking a radical departure from previous PlayStation consoles.

PS5 will launch in two options: a standard model with an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive, and a digital model without a disc drive, offering unprecedented choice at launch to gamers.

“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 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.”

As to what and what accessories come with the PS5, Sony announced the following:

PULSE 3D wireless headset : Offering 3D audio support and dual noise-cancelling microphones;

HD Camera: Featuring dual 1080p lenses for gamers to broadcast themselves along with their epic gameplay moments;
