Sony officially reveals the design and color scheme of next-gen PS5 game boxes, and they're not radically different.

The PS5's game cases will be different enough to distinguish between current- and next-gen games, but Sony hasn't opted for a dramatic redesign. The PS5 game cases feature a slightly darker transparent blue plastic casing, and the game cover art is accompanied by a stark white banner instead of the PS4's stylish blue gradient.

All in all the PS5 cases are extremely similar to the PS4. Of course we haven't seen the back of the case, which should relay key information about the game's features and functionality, e.g. install sizes, console enhancements like ray tracing, etc. That info would make for some real news.

It's what's inside the PS5 cases that'll set it apart from current-gen.
