Earlier today, Sony finally took the lid off and officially unveiled its next-generation console, the PlayStation 5.

After unveiling the DualSense controller back in April, the new design of the console matches its peripheral perfectly with a sleek spaceship-like curve. The biggest surprise was Sony announcing a disc-less digital-only version of the console, simply called PlayStation 5 Digital Edition. You can clearly see the difference in size on the side of the console from the removal of a disc drive.

Additionally, Sony also showed off accessories that included a Pulse 3D Wireless Headset, Media Remote, DualSense Charging Station and HD Camera. Before the actual unveiling, Sony showed off some titles that will be available for the console including fan favorite Grand Theft Auto V, a preview of NBA 2K21 with Zion Williamson, an all-new Gran Turismo 7, Hitman III, and Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

While the system is slated for a Holiday 2020 release, we are still awaiting a release date and pricing. Stay tuned for more information as it comes out. Sony has been showing solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement over the last few weeks with the postponement of the unveiling from June 4 until today, 8:46 moments of silence for George Floyd, and a $100 million global social justice fund by Sony Music Group
