PlayStation 5 Digital Edition loses the disc drive

Where we're going, we won't need optical media.

Just as many rumors predicted, Sony has revealed a disc-less PlayStation 5 model. The PS5 Digital Edition sports the same curvy design as the standard model, but loses the disc-drive hump on the side.

Unfortunately, Sony isn’t divulging any actual details — we still don’t know how much it’ll cost, or how else it’ll differ from the disc-equipped console. (Obviously, you won’t be able to play 4K Blu-rays.) Here’s hoping for a healthy discount, though, and enough storage space to avoid cleaning out your library often. And maybe, just maybe, Sony will be able to speed up its notoriously painful download speeds.
