Everything on the PlayStation 5 (PS5)

Now that the PlayStation 5 is revealed, we know what the console of Sony looks like. The PS5 is a big step forward from the PS4 in several ways, such as the controller with trigger effects. On this page, you can read all about the PlayStation 5.

PS5: this is what it looks like

PS5 appearance

The PlayStation 5 is white with black and has a modern design. The PS5 also has a blue LED strip. Because of this, the console has a futuristic look, like it's an object straight out of a Marvel movie. The size of the PS5 is 39x10.4x26cm, so it's slightly taller and wider than the PS4 Pro, which was 32.7x5.5x29.5cm.

The DualSense controllers have haptic feedback. The controllers also have dynamic trigger effects. These are triggers with resistance that adapt to the game you're playing. In terms of appearance, the controllers kind of look like the current DualShock V2 controller. The name of the controller is DualSense, as successor to the current DualShock 4.

Digital Edition

In addition to the normal PlayStation 5, there's the PS5 Digital Edition. This edition doesn't have a disc tray and you have to download your games on the console. This way, you don't have a pile of games on your TV cabinet. But you'll have to make choices to prevent a full storage.

Backwards compatibility

Backwards compatible

Something that PlayStation fans have been complaining about since the launch of the PS4 is the lack of backwards compatibility. The PS5 does support this. This means you can easily transfer your digital game library to the new Sony console via your PS account. This way, you can play PS4 games you bought digitally on the PS5. In addition, you can also insert physical PS4 disks in the PS5 to play these games.


Ryzen processor

The PlayStation 5 has an RDNA 2 architecture GPU by AMD that achieves a maximum speed of 2.23GHz. You can play 4K games with a maximum refresh rate of 120 frames per second. In addition, the PS5 has a CPU and an SSD that ensure games load up to 20 times faster than on the PlayStation 4. It also has 16GB RAM and support for 3D sound which allows you to hear the depth and direction of the sound.
