When players are going to pick up PlayStation 5 games this year from store shelves, they will be available in Blu-ray disc inside identical plastic boxes used for PlayStation 4 title and its iconic gradient blue strip is now swapped with white.

Sony is probably matching cover design for PS5 physical boxes to their next-gen console design of black and white. Interestingly, it also has "Only on PlayStation" branding missing while featuring both PlayStation 5 and PS Studios logo.

Primary launch lineup for PS5 console mostly includes a number of cross-gen titles and Miles Morales is the biggest exclusive that Sony showed off so far, which serves as a follow-up sequel and is a full standalone experience as well.

Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales sets a year after he discovers his powers and continues as he starts fighting crime in Harlem as a costumed hero, taking cue from Marvel's Spider-Man and The City That Never Sleeps DLC series.

Though video game companies usually makes change to boxes when crossing generations, to make them more noticeable on store and it makes sense for them to do so since there are more than a billion PlayStation 4 games out there.

Sony has yet to reveal a release date and retail price for PlayStation 5 console this holiday season. Other than a few minor changes, general mockup for next-gen box art looks similar to design used for current generation of console.
