The next generation of consoles officially in the near future, Sony and Microsoft are starting to lift the lid on the coming platform. Microsoft officially introduced the next Xbox to Project Scarlett through a video of developers and executives discussing console features and how to authorize game creators in the E3 2019 press briefing. Sony dropped out of E3 this year, but in April it unofficially released the first information about the next PlayStation, known as the PlayStation 5.
Details on both Scarlett and PS5 are still lacking, but in order to become an early adopter you will need to learn more to learn more. Here is everything we know about the PS5.
When is the PS5 release date?
Sony has not provided an explicit release date for the next PlayStation release. But we know when it can arrive. At the end of April, Sony executives said they would not release the PS5 for at least 12 months. It presents the fastest firing timing in the summer of 2020.
Considering that Sony has not said much about the system since then and has not seen any games for development, it's hard to imagine that the console is ready for release within the next year. In other words, Smart Money will debut in the fall of 2020. The PS5 is placed side by side with Scarlett (similar to the PS4 and Xbox One, which launch in November 2013).
What are the hardware specifications for the PS5?
Sony has not yet provided a hardware specification for the console. What we now know, like Scarlett, is that the PS5 will be powered by AMD's technology. The 8-core CPU is based on AMD's third-generation Ryzen processor and the new 7nm Zen 2 architecture, and the GPU will be a custom design for the forthcoming Navi graphics card family.
The GPU will support real-time ray tracing, an advanced rendering technology that debuted in consumer graphics cards from AMD competitor Nvidia in 2018. Now, however, it is clear that Sony will provide hardware-based ray tracing for the PS5's GPU. The company promises that the console will support resolutions up to 8K and frame rates up to 120Hz.
From a non-visual point of view, the PS5 includes a custom chip for 3D audio, allowing the console to deliver more immersive surround sound than Dolby Atmos and DTS: X. It will still provide optical drives for disc-based games. And Sony is promoting the amazing components that make PS5 the biggest upgrade to the current generation consoles. Solid state drives (instead of hard drives), designed specifically for gaming, can significantly reduce load time and allow developers to create larger, more drives. A complex game world.
Is the PS5 backwards compatible with PS4 games?
Yes. The architecture of PS5 is based in part on the architecture of PS4. So unlike the leap from the PlayStation 3 to the PS4, when Sony launches the next console, the old game will not become useless. It is worth noting, however, that Sony has not yet provided details on how the PS4 backwards compatibility works and how much console libraries are supported on the PS5.
Does PS5 support cloud games?
It is not confirmed, but it is more likely than not. In an interview with Wired, Sony's Mark Cerny, chief system architect for both PS4 and PS5, revealed the first details of the next PlayStation, he did not say anything about the company's cloud gaming plans. "We are pioneers of cloud games and when we move toward launch, our vision will be clear," he said.
One of the key developments that represents Sony's interest in cloud gaming is that the company recently signed an agreement with Microsoft, the Xbox manufacturer, to launch a beta version of Project xCloud in the fall. "Both companies will be able to support their respective gaming and content streaming services through a future cloud solution from Microsoft Azure." Azure is one of Microsoft's cloud computing platforms and a successful business segment. Sony now offers a streaming library that includes hundreds of PlayStation 2, PS3 and PS4 games through PlayStation Now, but the company is now investing more in cloud games.
How much does the PS5 cost?
Hardware manufacturers generally do not give price details until the game is significantly late. So, assuming the PS5 will be released in the fall of 2020, Sony does not expect to announce prices someday next year. At this point, all figures will be pure guesses. The company can still finish the hardware, and the components will be a major factor in setting the system cost.
Finally, Sony took advantage of Microsoft's sails by releasing the PS4 at $ 399 less than the Xbox360. The higher price is due to the inclusion of the second generation Kinect sensor. The high-end Xbox 360 was $ 399 before it was $ 499 cheaper than the low-end PS3. Cerny told Wired that the company was thinking about "fascinating" pricing. […] Light of [the console’s] Advanced feature set. "
At this point, everything you know about Scarlett and PS5, both consoles have a similar position in terms of hardware components and functionality. It would be tempting for Microsoft and Sony to stick their heads together with two consoles at the same price.
What games will PS5 release?
Sony and third-party publishers have not released any games that are being developed for the next PlayStation. You can even imagine 2019 games like the upcoming PS4 title – Kojima Productions. Death Strand – Eventually it will eventually be released to the PS5. (Porting the latest latest gen distribution is a relatively quick and easy way to strengthen your console library over a lifetime.)
Considering Sony's large internal studio, we feel strange to know only a few of the major PS4 projects we are developing. Naughty Dog & # 39; s Our Last Part 2 And Sucker Punch Productions & # 39; Ghost of Tsushima. The company's other internal development teams are already working on the PS5 launch titles. Maybe the guerrilla game is 2017 Horizon zero dawn?
