Everything you need to know about PS5

PlayStation 5 (PS5) is a next-generation home video game console developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment and manufactured by Sony. Being the successor to the PlayStation 4 released in 2019, it is all set to hit the stores this year with its new specs, features and development.

Sony PlayStation 5 (PS5) Release Date

Initially, there were rumors regarding the delay of  PS5  due to the COVID-19 situation. In addition to that, job listing seemingly from Sony pointed at an October 2020 date. However claiming all those rumors false, an official confirmation from Sony claimed that the PS5 will release “in time for Holiday 2020″. So we can expect it to release sometime time between October and December 2020 – giving a direct competition to the Xbox Series X, which is also planned to release it that same time window.  It’s quite observable that November has been the historical time for the previous PlayStation’s launch and it would spare some time before Christmas to get consoles. AMD, the tech giant that’s been commissioned to form the processor and graphics chips in both the PS5 and Xbox Series X next-gen consoles, is “ramping up production” to organize for his or her respective launches. AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su claimed this in early May 2020. This timing is additionally targeted on a November launch window.

Sony Playstation 5 (PS 5) Price

There hasn’t been any official confirmation regarding the PS5 price from Sony yet. In a quarterly earnings call, Sony’s chief treasurer Hiroki Totoki revealed that the corporate still hasn’t nailed down the PS5 price.

“What isn’t very clear or visible is because we are competing within the space, so it’s very difficult to debate anything about the worth at now of your time , and depending upon the worth level, we may need to determine the promotion that we are getting to deploy and the way much costs we are prepared to pay,” Totoki claimed.

One rumor has suggested the console will fix at a whopping amount of $499 in North America. Although fated to be termed as and treated with skepticism, but it might be still possible as it’s only $100 more than the launch price of the PS4 and PS4 Pro. It is expected that the console’s price is going to be fair enough with the technology it uses. But Sony also has to keep in mind its rival. It’s very unlikely that Microsoft will repeat the error again as it made by launching the Xbox One at a prohibitively high price. So Sony will need to make sure that it doesn’t make an the same mistake as that Microsoft by making the PS5 too expensive.

 

Sony Playstation 5 (PS 5) DualSense Controller Design

The PS5 will accompany a replacement gamepad with the DualSense PS5 controller and not the DualShock 5. The two-tone black and white color PS5 controller color scheme extends to the four face buttons. It still comprises Triangle, Circle, Square and Cross (or X), but void of color. There is blue light on either side of the touchpad. The DualSense controller’s color scheme is different from what we’ve seen in previous PlayStation gamepads, but the overall shape, dimensions and grandeur are additionally a huge departure.

The PS5 controller includes haptic feedback within the L2 and R2 shoulder buttons that are getting to be adaptive. Sony explains that these adaptive triggers are important to let players feel the strain of their actions, like drawing a bow to shoot an arrow. this may let developers program the resistance of the triggers to simulate actions more accurately. The DualSense Controller will this time have a microphone inside the controller. This might allow enthusiasts to connect with friends while playing. Sony is teasing more details about this button before the console launch.

Sony PlayStation 5 (PS5) Design

Sony has gone futuristic and minimalistic with the DualSense’s design. And, while we all know that the PS5 won’t look anything a bit like the dev kits we’ve seen so far, the alien-futuristic design could even be within the proper vein. Though there’s still been no official PS5 design announced till now, but the reveal of the DualSense PS5 controller has given us a fairly good idea of what we’ll expect the next-gen console to look like.

It seems that the console itself might itself show up with a primarily white design with black lining or sections. However, all of this is often mere speculation which we cannot know needless to mention until Sony officially unveils the PS5 design. We’re expecting Sony to host another PS5 reveal around June or July to reveal the console’s price and elegance – similarly to how it did with the PS4.

Sony PS 5 specs

During its first official PS5 reveal event, Sony lifted the curtains, thus giving us a far better idea of the specs the next-gen console PS5 will offer. Let’s take a look at them-

  • CPU of AMD Zen 2-based CPU with 8 cores at 3.5GHz of variable frequency
  • GPU with 10.28 TFLOPs, 36 CUs at 2.23GHz of variable frequency
  • memory interface of 16GB GDDR6 / 256-bit
  • Memory bandwidth of 448GB/s
  • Internal storage Customized upto 825GB SSD
  • IO throughput through 5.5GB/s (raw), typical 8-9GB/s (compressed)
  • Expandable storage through NVMe SSD slot
  • External storage via USB HDD support (PS4 games only)
  • Optical drive being 4K UHD Blu-ray drive

Sony’s commitment to custom silicon is raising gaming capabilities to the subsequent level. The developers now comfortable with developing on the PS4, are not being alienated like before. Custom hardware associated with the PS3 proved to be a difficult task for the developers to deal with. But the next-gen gaming console PS5 aims to be very developer-friendly.

PS5 Backward Compatibility

A customized processor and GPU stands for backward compatibility. We were already aware that Sony is going to be using AMD’s Zen 2 CPU processor tech, with eight cores and 16 threads. The official reveal stream also revealed that the PS5 are going to be delivering 3.5GHz frequencies. So, the PlayStation 5 would be running 8x Zen 2 Cores at 3.5GHz (at variable frequencies) over the PS4’s 8x Jaguar Cores at 1.6GHz. That’s an enormous jump in performance.

What’s smart is that the mixture makes it simple for the PS5 to simply handle PS4 backward compatibility – through GPU architecture instead of hours of coding. Most of the highest 100 PS4 games are going to be fully compatible at launch. PS4 games are going to be supported on the GPU silicon. But the GPU seems to be emulating PS4 and PS4 Pro graphics chips. This may not be as interesting as Xbox Series X’s method, which can even be capable of upscaling previous Xbox generation games and adding HDR to previously HDR-less titles.

Tempest 3D audio tech

Perhaps the most important reveal of the day was the 3D audio support, because of the new Tempest Engine. It’s an incredibly powerful system: if the PSVR can support “50 pretty decent sound sources,” consistent with Cerny – with the PSVR’s distinct sound system being one among the more complex audio systems in gaming at the instant – the PS5’s Tempest Engine can support hundreds. Perhaps better of all is that the way you will get to experience this – even a lowly pair of headphones at launch are going to be ready to cash in of the sense of presence and directionality Sony is promising here, with the corporate also committing to later support multi-speaker surround systems with the tech.

 

 

A calm and composed mind brings more happiness than the pursuit of success coupled with constant restlessness. All the seasons seem beautiful to me, for I carry the mindset of blissful happiness within me. I am a blooming young girl who loves experimenting, playing the piano, composing tunes with the belief that every piece of music has emanated from God. Sometimes I draw and pen down my thoughts as well. For queries and suggestions, mail me at subhashreeadarsh@gmail.com
