This morning, the PlayStation 5 arrived on the Ars Orbital HQ, which implies we’re allowed to say a number of issues—emphasis on “few”—as the brand new console’s November 12 launch date attracts nearer.

First off, have a look… on the field! You’ll be able to look as lengthy and exhausting on the console’s field as you would like. As a part of our console evaluation settlement with Sony, we’re not allowed to share photographs of something inside the field but, however we’re allowed to substantiate that there’s certainly a working PlayStation 5 console in there. (Not cake.)

However we actually cannot say the rest about its contents. Something that resembles an “impression” is off limits at this level, so in case your many questions have not already been answered by a Sony promotional video or social media publish, we will neither verify nor deny. (Our field completely pales in comparison with one among Sony’s lead {hardware} engineers tearing a whole PlayStation 5 aside.) On the very least, we will zoom in on the field’s effective textual content, which you will discover within the above gallery.

A kind of pictures confirms the precise contents you’ll be able to count on, together with a single DualSense gamepad, a packed-in copy of the brand new Sony recreation Astro’s Playroom, and cords for HDMI and energy. Curiously, the field would not verify the HDMI cable’s score. Is it HDMI 2.1, to assist the field’s declare of “4K/120fps” imagery in HDR, or freaking 8K? Or will newer TV house owners want to purchase an extra cable? Even we’re not allowed to make clear at this level.
