Sony’s postponed livestream occurred just hours ago to officially reveal what we can look forward to in terms of the highly-anticipated PlayStation 5 – and let’s just say, we’re more than completely sold.
While the specs and controller have been public knowledge for some time now, there was a showcase of the PS5’s in-game experience – which, as of this moment, promises to deliver plenty. More importantly, we finally learned what the console actually resembled in its physical form after months of guestimating through concept renderings.
Onto the matter of price, an Australia RRP has yet to be confirmed. But unsurprisingly, rumours have been aplenty – especially given the fact a leaked and since deleted Amazon UK listing set the purchase point at £599. That’s approximately AU$1,090.
Anyways, enough chat – take a look at the PlayStation 5 for yourself below.
