All You Need to Know About PS5

The successor of Sony’s PlayStation series, PS5 will be the latest addition to the gaming console legacy. This is not to be confused with the previously launched PlayStation 4 Pro which was just one step ahead of PS4 in terms of the quality of graphics it offered. Playstation 5 will feature a completely new gaming library having new titles and new functionalities.

Launch Date

While there is no confirmation yet about the official launch date of the PlayStation 5, Sony has mentioned its plans to have the launch in the holiday season of this year. Just like the previous launches, players will be given an option to make pre-orders For the console as well as the new game titles.

There is always a possibility of delaying the dates due to the Covid-19 restrictions imposed by the government. Following the delay of the much-anticipated title Halo Infinite which was set to be launched this year but now the date has been forced to 2021, Marvel’s Spiderman: Miles Morales has now become the most exciting upcoming title that is going to be launched this year as a PlayStation 5 exclusive title.

PS5 Pricing Leaks

The anticipated price tag for the PlayStation 5 seems to be hefty, coming out at around $500. This puts the new console from Sony in line with the upcoming console from Microsoft, the Xbox Series X. The Series X is also expected to be launched at a similar price bracket by Microsoft. The exciting discount offers made for the PlayStation 4 titles triggered a wave of excitement among the fans as it indicated that the launch of the PlayStation 5 is nearing.

Features & Specs

PlayStation 5 will have support for gaming on TVs with HDR and 4K resolutions. The new console will bring an array of VR games with dedicated accessories. Sony has announced that it is going to launch an online platform that will feature downloadable games and movie titles that can be streamed using the built-in Blu-ray video player. Streaming services are also some exciting new additions; it will have support for streaming services like Netflix and Hulu. The new console will come with a power-saving option for saving resources while gaming.

The PlayStation 5 is going to be the first console to feature a built-in SSD just like the ones found in high-end gaming computers. The graphic processing has become even more capable with the ability of the Solid State Drive (SSD) to load 8k graphics with a 120Hz refresh rate. The rendering capacity of the new GPU is set at 10.3 teraflops which are expected to significantly boost the gaming performance. PlayStation 5 will come with the latest 3rd-gen Ryzen CPU along with a custom graphic card from AMD’s Radeon Series. The new PS will have support for ray tracing which is expected to bring more realistic and better 3D graphics rendering.

Backward Compatibility

Thankfully Sony has confirmed that the new PS5 will have complete backward compatibility, meaning you will be able to play all the gaming titles from PlayStation 4 in the new console. It has even been mentioned that the players can expect the games to run even better in the latest version. Players will not only be able to use the older disk versions of the games but also retrieve their digital purchases from their PSN account, as long as they use the same PlayStation Network account in their new consoles.

PS5 Controllers and Headset

DualShock 5 controllers were certainly great in terms of the haptic feedback offered. Still, Sony has promised to bring a new and even better haptics engine in the new DualSense Wireless Controllers which will come with PlayStation 5. The rumble feature will get replaced by an adaptive haptics engine which will regulate the intensity of the resistance based on the type of content that is being displayed. Like its predecessors, DualSense Wireless Controllers will have support for USB Type-C along with in-built speakers.

Sony has boasted of its new Pulse 3D Wireless Headset that comes with noise cancellation enabled microphones. It will have a USB-C port for charging and a 3.5mm headphone jack for being compatible with mobile devices. The new Pulse 3D will also have a bunch of features for providing additional conveniences like volume and microphone shortcuts. We’re expecting Sony to include the Pulse 3D Headset within the box of the PlayStation 5 considering the whopping price tag; however, players should be prepared for yet another setback of about $150 for purchasing the Headset separately. The new generation PlayStation has certainly made us excited for what it is offering. The new specs, the advanced functionalities, the improved performance has worked towards increasing the anticipation among the fans regarding the launch of the new console. Another thing to get excited about is the partnership of Sony with Microsoft that will bring cloud-based game streaming to the gamers.
