PS5 and PS5 All-Digital Revealed in Future of Gaming Show

Sony’s PlayStation 5 was finally revealed to the masses via their Future of Gaming Show presentation on Thursday. We got an exclusive look at some upcoming games too, including Horizon II: Forbidden West. However, the new look and the two different versions of PS5 are what stole the show.

 

The one big thing that a lot of people were hoping for that we didn’t get was a price tag. However, the addition of an all-digital PS5 alongside the traditional PS5 gives us a decent idea of what we’ll be looking at in terms of console pricing. It’s no secret that over the past couple of years, the industry has been moving into a completely digital space. Microsoft and Xbox have also expressed their interest in things like an all-digital console and their xCloud service. Considering this transition and the simpler hardware that comes with an all-digital console, it’s likely this will be the cheaper alternative of the two PS5s.

 

 

While it’s impossible to truly say until the prices are announced, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the PS5 all-digital version to hit around the same mark as the Xbox One X, which was $499 USD. This will likely be the new standard price for consoles going forward, assuming that consoles will be the standard still when the next group of them come out. It wouldn’t be surprising to see the traditional version clock in at as high as $699 USD.

 

However, this does little to belay the excitement of this new design. The only bit of information that may be concerning is the vertical design of PS5. Consoles often go into cubbies on entertainment centers in living rooms, and if the console can’t be put on its side like the most recent Xbox consoles, then that could pose a problem. When that’s the worst of your issues, though, you’re in pretty good shape. Let’s raise a glass to the new generation.
