Surprises everyone with Playstation 5 Digital Edition

Sony has kicked off its live stream with a surprise announcement of not one, but rather two new Playstation 5 consoles, one of them called the Digital Edition and coming without a Blu-Ray drive. Sony also revealed a bunch of games, but so far, details about the console itself are still scarce.

The design of the Playstation 5, which will be shared between both versions as well as the new Dual Sense controller, is pretty impressive. We are looking at a curved console which does not appear as large as originally thought. Sony also released a short Playstation 5 hardware reveal trailer so you can check that out as well.
