Which PS5 should I buy?

Along with the accessories, Sony revealed that a PS5 Digital Edition is being made as well. As its name suggests, you can't use normal discs with it. Instead all media will need to be downloaded to its SDD. This is similar to Microsoft's Xbox One S All-Digital Edition.

According to comments made by Sony's Jim Ryan to CNET, the only difference between the consoles is the disc drive.

As you saw, there is a small difference in the form factor of the two consoles. I'm sure you also observed, the basic design aesthetic is consistent between them. So there is that and the fact that the digital edition does not have a disk drive. That is it. Other than that, they are identical products.

Which console you then buy comes down to a matter of preference. Do you sometimes buy physical discs and do you have physical PS4 games you'd like to play on your PS5? If the answer is no, you'll probably want the PS5 Digital Edition.
