PS5: the same console, 2 ways to play

The differences will therefore be the way you use your games… and the price. Do you want to pre-order one of the PS5s to have it asap? The ideal solution is to make an online purchase, as quickly as possible.
With the PlayStation 5, it will be possible to purchase physical games at any store or from online resellers.

If you want to sell your video games after having finished them, it will be better to go on the PS5 Blu-Ray.
