The new console for PlayStation users, the PS5 is a highly anticipated device that gamers have been waiting for. Although Sony has been a bit late in the race, there is a lot of existing things from the new Blue-ray player that’s capable of reading 4K or HUD to the more powerful engine in the box. The new console would cater to the content needs of different taste as well as meet the ever growing need of hardware capabilities of new games.
So, to answer your question does the PS5 have a DVD, Blue-ray, and HUD reader. The answer is no, yes, and yes. It has the capabilities to run Blu-ray and UHD, but unfortunately DVD games will not work in the console. Games compatible with PlayStation 3 and PS2 will not run on the latest console. PS5 is not yet ready to part with physical-disk games as a large number of gamers still rely on physical disk to play games.
Eliminating the DVD is still not logical as it would mean leaving the large population of gamers who still own or prefer physical disk. The world is not disk-free yet.
