Sony revealed what the physical boxes for PlayStation 5 games will look like in a blog post on Thursday, using the upcoming Spider-Man: Miles Morales as an example. While they look a lot like, well, game boxes, there are still a few interesting design details to note.

Sony will once again sell games in blue cases, similar to PS4 games, but the PS5 cases are a slightly darker blue that seems to match the blue accents on the PS5 console and controller. And the PS5 header at the top of the game label is white and black (instead of the blue of the PS4 header), also matching the design of the PS5 hardware family.

The PS5 game box doesn’t appear to have any language indicating that you’ll need the PS5 with a disc drive to play games that come in physical boxes — but if you opt to get the digital-only PS5 when the consoles are released, you probably won’t be shopping for physical games anyway.

If you want to make more comparisons between the PS5 and PS5 game boxes, here’s the game box for Spider-Man on PS4:
