Okay, so first thing’s first, we need to make it clear that the Playstation 5 is actually not a rumor but a REAL thing that will be released this year, even though the design/controller hasn’t been revealed or seen officially. (Yet).
In other news, the controller will be revealed during the first quarter of this year and the pre-orders will start shortly after – and you bet your bottom dollar that it is going to be a better investment than PS4 Pro.
Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) will launch PlayStation®5 (PS5™) in several countries in the holiday season of 2020 and will make PlayStation®5 (PS5™) available in North America on November 20, 2020 at a recommended retail price (RRP) of $499 .
Since the PS4 Pro costs around $399 approximately at the moment, it is totally worth it to wait and spend a hundred bucks extra for a LOT of reasons!
SPECS – PS5
- GPU: Custom AMD Navi – capable of ray tracing!
- CPU: 8-core AMD Ryzen, 7nm Zen 2
- Storage: SSD
- Optical: 4K Blu Ray media player
- Visuals: Native 4K 120Hz + 8K TV Support
- Audio: 3D
- Backwards compatibility with PS4 games and PSVR hardware
Using SSD and the powerful AMD GPU, the install sizes and times will significantly reduce and also the loading times – no more WAITING! It’s an upgrade that was long overdue and honestly, it’s 2020. C’mon. We can’t be using an HDD for gaming now.
About the controller and it’s design – not much is known at the moment, not even an official name… Although it will be announced by March. We can hardly wait.
This console packs a LOT of power and will be a good competition for other consoles and well, the PC Master race as well! 8k TV support? Hell yeah!
So, sit back, relax, and just wait – it’s not too long for the Playstation 5 to come out and boy oh boy, it’s gonna be EPIC!
Stay tuned for more.
