Sony’s revealed the next version of its PlayStation gaming console due out this winter – with some fans suggesting it looks a bit like a “wi-fi router”.

There are two versions – a standard P-S Five and another “Digital Edition” without a disc drive.

There’s no details of the price yet – but it’ll go up against Microsoft’s next-generation Xbox released later this year.

According to the Playstation website; “At launch, we will offer two options: a PlayStation®5 console with an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive and a PlayStation®5 Digital Edition without a disc drive. The PS5 gameplay experience will be the same, so the choice is all yours. While there are some slight differences in the look of each model, for the overall design, we wanted to deliver a console that’s bold, stunning, and unlike any previous generation of PlayStation”.
