Sony’s Future of Gaming show reveals PS5 design12th June 2020
Sony’s Future of Gaming show finally showcased the design for the upcoming PlayStation 5.
The event began by revealing how Grand Theft Auto V (GTA) would once again be making its way to a next-generation console.
Following this, several major games were unveiled – such as the next Horizon Zero Dawn – before the lid was eventually lifted on the hardware.
The rather unconventional design will have two versions, one that supports discs and one that can only run digital games.
Shortly after the reveal, some were quick to highlight how the PS5 looks strikingly similar to a router:

While the Future of Gaming show was not without controversy – as shown by the console’s odd design and the re-release of GTA V – it ultimately did reveal several exciting games that will be available on the PS5.
Firstly, Insomniac Games is developing another Spider-Man ‘expansion’ that will focus on Miles Morales’ version of the web-slinger.
Fan-favourite Aloy will also be gracing PS5’s worldwide as the sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn has been officially confirmed.
Resident Evil 8: Village was likewise unveiled and it will see the return of both Ethan Winters and Chris Redfield, though how it connects to the wider franchise is still unknown.
Much in the same way as Microsoft has been coy about the Xbox Series X’s price, Sony has tiptoed around sharing how much the PlayStation 5 will cost.
Both next-generation consoles are still set for launch at the end of the year, though there is no confirmed date for either.
