Sony continues to entertain its fans with new offers. The company is in process of creating a new version of PlayStation 4. Even though this release will keep gamers entertained for a few more years, we want to know more about new generation of console by Sony.
PlayStation 5 Release Date
Will there be a PS5? Why not? It would be logical of Sony to release this console. The first generation came to the market almost 20 years ago. The gap between PS3 and PS4 was 7 years. It was a long period because the time gap between PS2 and PS1 was about five years. PS3 was released in six years after PS2. So hardly can we expect PS5 to come in the near future. In addition, the latest Sony VR device is released for PS4 only and company is going to make the most of it. Perhaps they will focus on improving this branch for some time. When will PS5 come out? The closest date possible is 2020. It’s also connected with the development of the hardware which this console uses. Nevertheless, it may take a longer time for PS5 to arrive.
When does PS5 come out exactly? No one knows the PS5 launch date precisely, even its developers. We could only guess that new PlayStation 5 release date should be expected not early than 2020.
And I mean not only a better graphics. The whole concept of gaming console could be reimagined by 2020, there might be VR-only or holographic stuff. Nevertheless, it is all like people’s dreams of flying cars back in the 80s. What we know for sure, in next few years 4K will be everywhere, just like Full HD now, and we will conquer new horizons. It might be 8K, or something radically new. We will see. One way or another, we expect a revolutionary approach to gaming, and Sony should made it.
Price and Recent News
The answer to the question how much does Playstation 5 cost is too premature at the moment. It largely depends on a situation and on inflation of currencies. We expect the $350-400 equivalent of today prices.
There are PlayStation 5 rumors says that new generation of PS may come in two versions. It may seriously affect the price of PS5. An average price of PS4 is around $400. So it’s expected that new PS will come with approximately the same price.
Design of the upcoming console is going to be completely different from what we know today. There’re no details but many sources say that PS5 will be of a radical appearance. There’re assumptions that this consoles can be cloud-based.
Will PS5 support Sony VR device? Yes, it will. However, there’re predictions that the company will release a new PS5 VR headset which will be compatible exclusively with the new console, while the one made for PS4 will become outdated.
Other PlayStation 5 news claims that anticipated console will come with new type of joysticks. They will have ultra-modern lightning and new types of vibration. They may even get one more small display situated right on the joystick. Perhaps it will show amount of ammo, health bar and so on.
As you might predict there’s very little information on this topic. Since AMD was so enthusiastic about PS4 we can only assume that it will stay with Sony in 5th generation too. Virtual reality may well become another part of PS5. PS VR which interacts with PS4 hints that system is going to be developed. Perhaps PS5 will provide deeper immersion into a gameplay. We expect PlayStation 5 graphics on a much higher lever than current PS4 and its Pro version. It is likely to support native 4K and upscale 8K resolution. We can also expect PlayStation TV to be another part of new console. There’s an idea that it will stream wireless. Some sources expect that Sony will remove optical disc from their consoles. Will they leave at least a flash drive for offline gaming?
We could only speculate on Playstation 5 games, but according to rumors, we could expect games list consist mainly of VR titles. There definitely will be new games and remakes of the old ones, just to keep traditions.
