PlayStation 5 Gets Two Versions? Cheaper Streaming System vs. 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray

With a lot of buzz already sounding around the PlayStation 5, now comes in another  spate of rumors suggesting there’s more in store, much to the delight of ardent gamers, of course.

It may happen that the Japanese company would launch two different variants of the PlayStation 5, as shared by Value Walk. When Sony decides on unleashing its upcoming console to avid gamers, it may do so by giving them options. While this is a far cry from the company’s traditional strategy, it won’t come as a surprise since multiple options seems to be the name of the game when aiming to attract hordes of buyers.

As with the evolving gaming industry, it makes sense to deviate from former strategies and offer more to the ever-aware consumer. One of the two consoles is expected to feature a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray drive while the other would revolve around downloadable games. Sony will naturally be extending support to the latest Blu-ray format since “a disc-based cinema culture” continues to matter to consumers.

However, for those avid players who won’t be considering the purchase of discs as an important aspect of their gaming experience, Sony would probably want to make available a model based on streaming and downloading titles.

One of the major advantages that this streaming and downloading console will offer is the price point, which should be quite lower than the other variant. This would also work well for the manufacturer, making higher profits on such a model. Such consoles could be leading the gaming industry in the direction where the tech giants would like see it, since they have clearly been pushing for titles being sold digitally.

Gamers can continue to keep themselves entertained with the exciting titles gearing up to arrive this year for PS4. The PS5 isn’t expected to launch before 2017 or 2018. Avid gamers can always come back here for more updates, speculations and rumors on the PS5.
