The PlayStation 5 (プレイステーション ファイブ, Pureisutēshon Faibu)?, officially abbreviated as PS5, is the fifth home video game console produced by Sony Computer Entertainment and the successor to the PlayStation 4 as part of the PlayStation series. It was released on November 12, 2020 in Japan, South Korea, New Zealand, North America, Australia and Singapore, and on November 19, 2020 for the rest of the world.
The console comes in two different variations: one has an Ultra HD Blu-Ray-compatible optical disc drive, supporting physical copies, and the other has the disc drive absent, which is more focused on downloading games digitally.
The PlayStation 5 has backwards compatibility, supporting a majority of old PlayStation 4 titles, in both physical and digital format.
