We finally know what the PlayStation 5 looks like. After a long time under wraps, it was shown at Sony's digital briefing today, alongside a slate of games.

There will be two configurations that we know of: the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 5 digital edition. They look similar, but the latter doesn't have a disk drive.

And while most of Sony's images show the PS5 standing tall, it does indeed also lay flat on its side, seemingly with the use of a stand.

    Great. :rolleyes:
    Almost every gaming device in my gaming area is black and to top it off, I can't place it under the TV because it won't lay flat?
    Ergh.

    *Edit - I "stand" corrected.:LOL: it can lay flat. Didn't see this in original photos and yes, it's important so I can fit it in my entertainment area with my PS3 & 4P. Looks like it's a go!

    What makes you think it won't lay flat ?
    So you're going to bypass these next gen consoles on the basis of vanity!

    So for the design they just took a WD MyBook, indented the center slightly, and used white plastic instead of black?

    I'd rather have seen it look like the dev kit with 6 fans.

    Come on man. The article wasn't that long. You don't even have to know how to read to be able to look at the pictures.

    This looks like a spaceship, less of a console. And I hope that white portions are not plastic that will turn yellow after sometime.

    Compared to the wall torch PS5, yes, I prefer the clean look of the new Xbox. Which makes me very sad! Why did they make it so ugly?
