PS5 Next-Gen Console Details
PS5 or Play Station 5 is a gaming console and successor of PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro. Sony Interactive Entertainment is the developer of the game. The developments about PS5 came in 2019. The lead architect of Sony, Mark Cerney, gave some details about the console in 2019 while giving an interview to Wired Magazine. As per the speculations, PS5 will have a solid-state drive, a custom AMD GPU capable of ray tracing, backward compatibility with most PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR games, and support for both downloadable and disc-based games.
PS5 Release Date
Gamers were excited when Sony announced that they would have a release event for PS5. The event was supposed to happen on 4 June 2020. Everyone was waiting for the release as it would unveil the much-awaited PS5. There were also rumours that Sony will announce Silent Hill revival on that day. However, they decided to postpone the event for a later date. The reason for the postponement was the coronavirus pandemic prevailing in the world. Sony thought it is not the best time to celebrate the launch of PS5 when something bigger is happening around. It is now expected to release between October 2020 and December 2020.
Sony has not given away any details regarding the design of PS5. However, a picture is circulating on the internet that claims to be the design of PS5. As per that photo, the design of PS5 looks rather different from all of its predecessors. The latest rumoured design looks very bulky and thick. It looks twice as thick as PS4. The design has similarity with its dev kit and looks like a door wedge. This may not be the correct design, but it may be more accurate than any other fan-made design.
Previous Speculated Designs
Earlier, another speculated design of the console went viral which looked really bad as per the standards of Sony. It looked more or less like a shoebox. The latest design has triggered the circulation of this shoebox design again on the internet. Sony is yet to reveal the design, and it is unlikely that they will release it anytime soon.
