PlayStation 5 is one of the most awaited consoles right now. However, there are concerns that the current COVID-19 pandemic might delay its release, which is originally planned for Holiday 2020. But fret not folks, Sony executive Eric Lempel recently sat down for an interview with gameindustry.biz. There, he revealed that despite  the  COVID-19 concerns, Sony will still release the PS5 in Holiday 2020 as planned. In addition, Sony also released the very first ad for the PS5:

In the interview, Lempel stated that “It’s a massive challenge on every front.” He added “Not just for the parts of the organisation that I oversee, but for all parts of the organisation. The nice thing is that we’re pulling it together. We will launch this year — that will happen — and from my end we will absolutely make sure that we will bring all of the magic and all of the excitement of launches that we have had in the past. We are still committed to doing that. It’s more challenging than ever, but our gamers expect a lot from us. It’s a chance to celebrate the beginning of a new generation. This spot kicks off PlayStation 5 marketing efforts, and this is just the beginning. So you can see this as the initial entry. Hopefully it looks high quality, hopefully it captures the imagination of the viewer, and from here, it just gets bigger and better.

The new PS5 will have two versions. One is the Digital Edition, which does not have a disc tray. Instead, it will only carry digital versions of games. The other one is of course the regular version which can carry both physical and digital versions of the games.

And not just that, but Sony also unveiled other accessories for this new console. These include the new new “DualSense” controller, which will of course be wireless, as well as a wireless headset, and HD camera, and a media remote.
