Sony unveiled the PlayStation 5 console hardware and some added accessories during the PlayStation 5 reveal event 2020. This was a bit of a surprise for me as I figured they would wait until Gamescom in August.

Overall the PlayStation 5 is actually quite a seductive piece of machinery. A very modern yet futuristic design aesthetic makes it look somewhat alien in nature. Some very large vents glide up the front towards the very top which showoff the cooling potential. Sony revealed two PlayStation 5 models, one with an HD Blu-Ray player and a disc-less model. Sony also unveiled a stereo camera accessory similar to the camera that launched with the PlayStation 4.

The Playstation 5 will also have some new headphones that will take advantage of the consoles 3D audio technology. A media remote and Dual Sense charging station will add to the list of items that will push the PlayStation 5 to be a dominant multimedia machine.

The PlayStation 5 will be released sometime this holiday 2020. Stay tuned to Gaming Access Weekly for more PlayStation 5 news.

I'm an old timer that started in 1988 with Tempest at the Disney arcade; in 1989 I was given an NES with Contra and Super Contra, thus sealing my fate forever. I moved onto the Genesis, followed by the original PlayStation, PC (mainly just for DOOM) and the N64. I got a launch day PS2 settling for the PlayStation family of consoles until 2015 when I renewed my interest in the PC world. Outside of gaming, custom PC water cooling and car parts are life.
