The next-gen gaming console will be released during the holiday season later this year.

Singaporean console gamers out there, time to start saving up your money.

You will need it for the PlayStation 5, which will be launched during the holiday season, or between October and December. Sony revealed early on Friday (Jun 12, SGT time) how the PS5 will look for the first time – and it’s beautiful.

The white-and-black PS5 stands vertically and comes in two versions: one with a 4K Blu-ray drive, and a slimmer Digital Edition without the drive.

Several accessories, such as a wireless headset, a camera, a media remote and a charging dock for the PS5 DualSense controller, were announced too.

If you are wondering about the consoles’ specs, it is powered by an eight-core AMD Zen 2 CPU and a custom AMD RDNA 2-based GPU. It comes with 825GB of storage, with the SSD providing 5.5GB/s of performance – which means the PS5 will run really, really fast.

The PS5 will be able to support 8K graphics, 4K graphics at a 120Hz refresh rate, and 3D audio.

If you are worried about spending too much on new games, don’t worry. The majority of PS4 games will be compatible with the PS5.

Sony has also announced several games that will be released for the PS5, including Ghostwire: Tokyo, Horizon: Forbidden West, Village: Resident Evil, Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Gran Turismo 7.

The PS5 comes nearly seven years after Sony launched PS4 back in November 2013.
