Here's Your First Look at PlayStation 5 Hardware

Sony held their Not-E3 event earlier today where they showed off the industrial design of the PS5.

There appear to be two versions of the console. The first version contains a 4K UHD Blu-ray drive, while the second edition does not. This second edition is called the Digital Edition. Visually, it's quite striking and is a sharp contrast against the more industrial looking Xbox Series X.

The trailer also showed off various accessories like a DualSense charging dock, HD camera, and remote. However, it's unclear at the time of writing if these accessories will be included in the retail version of the console, or if they'll only be available separately. No hard release date nor price were shared.

Sony also shared the Tweet below which contains additional images of the consoles and their accessories:
