Here's your first look at the PlayStation 5 console

And its discless digital-only version.

Sony has finally unveiled its PlayStation 5 console. The sleek and curved box will come in two flavours - one with a disc drive, and one without.

Meet the PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition.

No pricing or launch date details were announced today.

The white-coloured console can be orientated horizontally or vertically. Both versions have a USB and USB-C port in the front.

Also shown: a controller charging station which docks two DualSense pads, a headset featuring 3D audio support and noise-cancelling microphones and a media remote with built-in microphone.
