Sony dropped a lot of juicy info at its PlayStation 5 event recently including details of the hardware, exclusive games that are coming to the console, and more. The console is set to be released during the holiday season at the end of the year.
First, we got to look at the console itself – a sleek, curved and futuristic design in a cool white and black colourway. Surprisingly, there are two versions – a standard model with a disc drive and one that is fully for digital download games (guess that’s another nail in the disc-format coffin).
In addition to the console and the previously announced DualSense controller, they also revealed the first batch of accessories to go with the PS5 – DualSense charging station, HD camera, Pulse3D wireless headset, and a media remote.
We’re not going to bore you with the specs, so here’s an infographic comparing the PS5 with the Xbox Series X.
Now that’s out of the way, let’s talk about all the games that are coming to the PlayStation, including exclusives and some indies that might just be worth your ringgit.
