The PlayStation 5, or PS5 Pro as it’s also called, isn’t expected to be released until 2020, so we have time to wait for all the details about the upcoming console. But that won’t stop us from dreaming about what will probably be one of the most highly anticipated releases of this decade. The PS4 Pro has been in production since 2016, and it’s expected to take Sony’s gaming experience to the next level with 4K graphics and more realistic gameplay than ever before.
The internal specs
The next PlayStation 5 is rumored to have some pretty impressive internal specs. It’s said to have a custom 8-core AMD Zen 2 CPU, a custom RDNA 2-based GPU, and 16GB of GDDR6 RAM. Plus, it’s said to support 4K resolution at 120fps, 8K resolution at 60fps, and ray tracing. If these rumors are true, then the next PlayStation 5 is shaping up to be a pretty powerful console. In addition to its beefy hardware, the next PS5 is also expected to offer backwards compatibility with PS4 games and Sony has announced that they’re working on new controllers as well. So far, Sony has only revealed that the PS5 will release in 2020 (a year after the Xbox Scarlett) but we’ll likely learn more about it this September when they announce their new video game system.
The PS5 will have an all-new software interface that is more user-friendly and intuitive than ever before. With this new interface, you’ll be able to quickly and easily find the games and content you’re looking for. In addition, the PS5 will feature a variety of new social features that will allow you to connect with friends and other gamers around the world. The PS5 will also support 4K resolution gaming, meaning you’ll be able to enjoy your favorite games in stunning detail. Finally, the PS5 will come with a built-in Blu-ray player, so you can watch your favorite movies and TV shows in high definition. We can’t wait for it to hit store shelves!
Just as important as what makes up a console’s hardware is its software. After all, who wants to play on an empty screen? Fortunately, the PS5 won’t disappoint here either—it will offer top of line entertainment straight out of the box! For instance, many apps that are available today on phones and tablets are expected to make their way onto console systems very soon. These apps could include things like Netflix and Hulu Plus, which means you’ll be able to access even more great entertainment when playing games on your PS5 system. It will even have Spotify!
The new features
The PS5 Pro will reportedly feature a more powerful CPU and GPU, as well as support for 4K resolution and HDR. The console is also said to be smaller and lighter than the original PS4, and will come with a new controller that features haptic feedback and adaptive triggers. The same sources claim that Sony may announce the PS5 at an event in early 2020, but there’s no guarantee on this. If they do announce it, we can expect it to release sometime during the year.
There are some other rumors surrounding the PS5 as well, including one about it potentially coming with 8K video support. We’ll have to wait and see what happens though! It’s likely we won’t know anything definitive until closer to 2020.
The PS5 Pro will likely be a more powerful version of the PS5, with a higher price tag to match. It’s possible that the PS5 Pro will launch alongside the standard PS5, or it could be released later as an upgrade. We can expect better graphics and possibly more storage capacity from the PS5 Pro. The controller may also see some improvements, such as haptic feedback and adaptive triggers. There are many predictions about what Sony might release for the next-generation console but one thing is certain, we won’t have long to wait before we find out!
Should you purchase the PS5 now?
Many say yes, because they’re excited to get their hands on all of these exciting new features. Others say no; there’s no real need to rush into things when you don’t even know exactly what those things are yet! If you do choose to go ahead and purchase a PS4 right now, remember that you have at least 2 years until Microsoft releases its Project Scarlett – so your decision doesn’t need to be rushed!
How much will it cost?
It’s hard to say how much the PS5 Pro will cost. We know that Sony is constantly striving to make their consoles more affordable, so it’s possible that the PS5 Pro will be priced similarly to the PS4 Pro, which launched at $399. However, given the increased power and potential features of the PS5 Pro, it’s also possible that Sony will price it higher, at around $499. Only time will tell for sure. But here are some features we hope Sony has in store with the next console. HDR on Blu-ray discs: The PS4 Pro doesn’t support HDR on Blu-ray discs. It would be great if the PS5 Pro fixed this oversight by including this feature, especially since Microsoft plans to release an Xbox One S model that does support HDR by year’s end.
