About PlayStation 5
PS5 was released in two versions: a base model with an Ultra HD Blu-ray–compatible optical disc drive, and a Downloadable Edition without this drive, which was designed to be a more affordable option for those who prefer to purchase games digitally.
The PS5 is backward compatible with more than 99 percent of the PS4’s 4,000+ game library, making it accessible right away. PlayStation VR is compatible with the console. Sony describes the updated PlayStation 5 user interface as “simple and informative,” with real-time updates on friends’ activities, available multiplayer activities, and single-player missions and rewards.
