Sony offered fans a long-anticipated first look at the PlayStation 5 in a presentation on Thursday afternoon.

The new console is a major visual departure from previous PlayStation hardware. It's white, asymmetrical, and has a set of fins sticking out of the top.

The PlayStation 5 console matches the new controller - the so-called "DualSense" gamepad - which was revealed earlier this year.

Sony is launching two versions of the PlayStation 5 this holiday. There's a "standard" PlayStation 5, with an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive, and a "Digital Edition" without a disc drive, the company said in a press release.

Here are the two consoles side-by-side:

Design-wise, the two PS5 consoles are very similar.

As seen above, the digital edition is symmetrical, while the standard edition has a bump where the disc drive is located.

It's unclear what the price difference will be between the two versions, but the functional difference is evident: The "digital model" is unable to read discs, while the standard model can.

In practice, that means that the Digital Edition is only able to play downloaded games - the latest step that the video game industry is taking to move away from physical video games.
