Sony just revealed its PS5 console: Here's what we know

From CNET: At its Future of Gaming event Thursday, Sony gave viewers a look at the new PlayStation 5 console. The company showed off the upcoming PS5 at the end of the event next to the new DualSense controller that we debuted back in April. Sony also displayed a suite of gear like an HD camera, controller charging station media remote and Pulse 3D wireless headset. It's unclear at this time if the gear is bundled or optional to add.

The new PS5, which was also pictured laying on its side, is a futuristic white with black finish and blue highlights.

The next-gen console will have two versions: a standard model with a Blu-ray drive and a slimmer Digital Edition machine that's discless -- it relies entirely on downloads and streaming. CNET's sister site GameSpot reported that the PS5 uses a solid-state drive, as opposed to a hard drive like previous PlayStations, and that game discs will support a capacity of up to 100GB.

Though prices and release dates weren't yet given, Sony CEO Jim Ryan said the company planned to launch later this year. You can watch the reveal below:
