This PlayStation 5 guide page discusses whether the latest console has a DVD or Blu Ray reader? What reader does PS5 support? Will it be possible to watch 4K movies on the console? Answers below.
Yes, the PlayStation 5 console is supposed to have a Blu-ray reader. What's more, it will be a 4K Blu-ray reader that will allow you to read much more capacious discs. The PS5 games will most likely be sold on 100GB Blu-ray discs.
The same disks are used to distribute 4K movies on Blu-ray. So it's safe to assume that the console will allow you to watch movies in 4K. Unfortunately, there is bad news for DVD fans - the console will no longer support discs with this format. It was confirmed that the console would not support the PlayStation 3 and PS2 games.
As for external drives, it will be possible to plug them into the console. So you can easily transfer data with the help of a disk or flash drive.
