PS5’s release date, specs, and rumors for Sony’s PlayStation 5

Console wars are more intense than ever, and the stakes are higher than ever. But the question is, will PS5 live up to the people’s expectations and continue to be the reigning champion? Also what is the PS5 going to look like? We have many information about the PS5 skins and PS5 decals. Let’s see what info we have on Sony’s next-gen console.

As expectations are high for the launch of Sony’s PS5 next-gen console later in 2020, what we have gathered will blow your mind away with incredible specifications and eye-catching design. We are closer than ever to the release date with bundles of announcements and rumors, making us very excited.

The Official PlayStation 5 website shows that it Launches holiday 2020. Following their trend, we assume it will be 2020 November or December. The official announcements started back in 2019 when Mike Cerny, the chief architect on Sony’s next console, stated that Sony is working on the successor of PS4 Pro. At that time he didn’t mention that it was going to be PS5, that announcement came later on. However, Mike Cerny did reveal a lot of technical information regarding the next-gen console.

Features of PS5

Combining that with the above official statements, the capabilities of PS5 will be:

  • Video Output: 4K HDR, 8K Support Included
  • CPU: 3rd Generation, 8-core AMD Ryzen CPU built with 7-nanometer Zen 2 microarchitecture
  • Hard Drive: SSD which is 19 times faster than traditional SSD
  • VR: PSVR Compatible and new models
  • Backwards compatible: PS5 will be backwards compatible. Sony wants us to expect a lot, but it is safe to say that at least all PS$ games will run on PS5.

The eye-catching shape of PS5 hasn’t been revealed; however, the most plausible one is of the let’s go digital. If you surf the internet searching for PS5 skins, there will be a lot of different designs. The only thing common is that none of them look like their predecessors. Think of these as PS5 decals because nothing is official yet.

A few games that we might see on PS5:

  • Call Of Duty: Black Ops 5
  • Cyberpunk 2077
  • GTA 6 (VI)
  • The Elder Scrolls VI
  • Ghost of Tsushima
  • Death Stranding

PlayStation 5 (PS5) has to contend with more companies as now Google’s Stadia is in the race too. That’s why we saw more stress on the Remote Play feature back in 2019. Remote Play feature was already available in PS4, and this feature allows people to stream from their console to a computer, smartphone, or PS Vista handheld console. Sony stated that:

“The evolution of Remote Play would provide a seamless game experience anytime, anywhere.”

A few rumors related to the price of PS5 have been floating. The accurate range of its price is likely to be around $499-$550, given that the cost of PS4 and PS4 PRO costs 100$ lesser makes it more believable.

Final words

To win the race, PS5 has to be faster, efficient, eco-friendly, technically superior, and also be better at remote gaming due to Google Staida and Microsoft’s Project xCloud. There is still some time left that will help us determine the winner of next-gen console wars.
