Sony PlayStation 5 : Comin Nov 2020

PS5 Release Date, PS5 Games, PS5 Power vs Xbox One X, PS5 Price Speculation - All the PS5 Info lets discuss


Here are all the rumors and speculation surrounding the PS5, including a potential PS5 release date, power, and launch games of Sony's inevitable PS5. Is the PS5 releasing in 2019?


What we Want From the PS5 Speculation aside, what would we ideally want from the PS5? Backwards compatibility for PS4 games would be brilliant, simply because you'd be able to carry over classics like the Shadow of the Colossus remake to the next console generation. We've seen how well Microsoft is handling backwards compatibility with its Xbox One consoles (including getting amazing results updating Xbox 360 games to run in 4K on Xbox One X), and something similar on PS5 would be great.

In terms of pure power, the PlayStation 5 has to significantly exceed the power of the Xbox One X. This means featuring more games running in 4K at 60FPS. If the PS5 can deliver about 10 TF of power we'd be happy, as this would allow devs to create games that look a generation ahead of what we've got now.

But what would the dream launch lineup be for the PS5? Death Stranding and The Last of Us: Part 2 are hugely anticipated blockbuster games, with the former especially looking to push the performance of whatever system it's on to the very limit. We've also mentioned Ghost of Tsushima and a sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn, and the latter would be the perfect way to kick off a new console cycle from Sony.

Asymmetrical design can look good as well. Its just that this one does not.

Infact, it seems like the disc version looks less terrible horizontally, while vertically its the other way around.
"Less terrible" is an appropriate description :lol:
Lol look at these two design grand masters giving verdicts on design. hahahaha "Its just that this one does not."

Would it be wise to get a PS5 at launch or within the first 2 - 3 months of its release? Considering these factors:

(a) The rupee is depreciating and based the past trends, the longer I wait, the worse it will be, making the purchase more and more expensive. I already bought an amount of USD last year at a much lower cost than its current value but now I realise that even if I use those a couple years from now, I would lose out on the probable future gain on investment so in either case the loss would be more or less equal.

(b) Earlier models usually have issues. The Xbox 360 had RROD, the PS3 had YLOD, the earlier PS4 and XB1 also had a considerable number of sudden death cases. Is it likely that these issues can be identified within the first 2 - 3 months?

Better to wait for atleast a year as prices of consoles in pak are highly inflated on new launch. i remember the ps2 on launch being sold around 35k, ps3 around 75 - 80k, ps4 more than 1 lakh. within a year these prices were halved. as for the currency depreciation concern, "Ghabrana nae hai" :D

Rumors.
The PS5 will cost $499 in the US and £449 in the UK when it launches at the end of the year, according to somewhat reliable leaker IronManPS5 on Twitter. That tracks with the rumors we’ve heard so far around Sony’s next-generation games console. But the leaker also revealed that the PS5 Digital Edition will be $100 and £100 less than its disk drive-equipped sibling, costing $399 and £349 in the US and UK respectively.

It’s worth pointing out that IronManPS5 has previously leaked what was claimed to be the price of the DualSense controller, which the leaker said will cost $59.99 and £54.99. And IronMan PS5 also noted that the PS5 will launch on November 20. However no sources were mentioned, and IronManPS5’s reputation as a fully-reliable leaker has yet to be established. So do take such leaks with a pinch of salt.

Here’s what PS5 game boxes look like



Sony gives us a peek at Spider-Man: Miles Morales in physical form




Cover art for Spider-Man Miles Morales on PS5



If you’re picking up the PlayStation 5 later this year — particularly the model that will include a Blu-ray drive — you may be interested in what physical copies of PS5 games will look like. Well here you go: As part of Sony’s plan to drop random, often minute details about the PS5 unceremoniously on a Thursday, we have our first look at PS5 game boxes, thanks toMarvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

It’s a familiar look — nearly identical to physical copies of PlayStation 4 software, only with a white strip in place of the PS4’s gradient blue strip to match the PlayStation 5’s bold black and white design. Of course, it bears the also-familiar PS5 logo, which Sony revealed back in January.

Sony plans to release the PlayStation 5 this holiday season. The company revealed Spider-Man: Miles Morales in June, alongside a slew of other first- and third-party PS5 games.

Here’s a closer look at the game’s box:

Sony has pretty dramatically ramped up planned PS5 production. They are anticipating producing 120m units in the next 5~6 years.

Could this mean the console production is cheaper than expected (and the price will be too ?).

Who knows. Let's see. For now it just means Sony are anticipating selling a lot of these.



Sony's new-generation PS5 game console shipments are estimated to reach at least 120 million units in the next five years after launch in fourth-quarter 2020, roughly double those for Microsoft's Xbox series X, according to sources of its backend supply chain in Taiwan.

The life cycle for household game consoles may be shortened to five years from 6-7 years, and PS5 shipments may challenge 120-170 million units when its 5-year cycle expires, compared to 110 million units registered to date for PS4 launched in November 2013, the sources said, adding that Sony has recently boosted its PS5 shipment estimate for 2020 to near 10 million units.

All PS4 peripherals will/should work with PS5. The only caveat is that DS4 will only work with PS4 games on the PS5, it cannot be used as a native PS5 controller for PS5 games.

All PS5' will come with at least one Dual Sense so not really a big issue.

Sony confirms which PS4 hardware will work on PS5



DualShock 4 won’t be supported on PS5 games

Many PlayStation 4 controllers and accessories, including racing wheels, headsets, and the PlayStation Move motion controllers, will work on PlayStation 5 and the games designed for the next-generation console, Sony confirmed Monday morning. But the PS4’s DualShock 4 controller will have an important limitation on PS5: Sony’s current-gen gamepad won’t be compatible with PS5 games.

On the PlayStation Blog, Sony outlined PS4 controller and accessory support on PS5. It’s mostly good news. Officially licensed racing wheels, arcade sticks, and flight sticks will “work with PS5 games and supported PS4 games,” Sony said. Platinum and Gold wireless headsets, as well as third-party headsets that connect via USB port or audio jack, will work on PS5. And PlayStation Move controllers will work with “supported PS VR games on PS5.”



The DualShock 4 and officially licensed third-party PS4 gamepads will work with supported PS4 games running on PS5, Sony said, but not for software developed specifically for PS5. Why? “[We] believe that PS5 games should take advantage of the new capabilities and features we’re bringing to the platform, including the features of DualSense wireless controller,” Sony said.

The DualSense controller for PS5 was unveiled in April. The successor to Sony’s DualShock line will include haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, and a built-in microphone array, as well as a new “Create” button that replaces the DualShock 4’s “Share” button.




Sony also confirmed that the PS4’s PlayStation Camera will be compatible with PS5, but will require an adapter “that will be provided at no additional cost to PS VR users.” Sony says it will reveal how PlayStation Camera owners can get that adapter at a later date. Sony has a new camera accessory designed for PS5 that it calls the HD Camera.

PlayStation 5 is expected to launch sometime this holiday.

Sony’s ‘Ready for PlayStation 5’ TVs are not, in fact, ready for the PlayStation 5


Next-gen consoles make a next-gen TV purchase more confusing

The next generation is just a few months away, with Sony and Microsoft both planning to launch their respective new consoles, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, this holiday season. Both companies have equipped their consoles with next-gen video features such as support for gaming in 4K resolution at 120 frames per second. That requires HDMI 2.1 — a technology that is just starting to make its way into modern televisions.

As with any new console generation, there’s a lot of potentially unfamiliar tech jargon associated with the PS5 and Xbox Series X, such as variable refresh rate (VRR) and auto low-latency mode (ALLM). It’s creating a confusing landscape for anyone looking to future-proof their living room by buying a new TV for the next-gen consoles.

Last week, Sony came out with a new label for TVs that describes two of its 2020 models as “Ready for PlayStation 5.” The branding, which resulted from a partnership between the company’s electronics and gaming divisions, is meant to “make it easier for consumers to select the optimum TV in preparation for the highly anticipated launch of the PlayStation 5,” Sony said in a news release.

That sounds promising! Anything that could alleviate the pain of researching TVs and clear up the alphabet soup of initialisms for their features would be helpful. Sadly, that’s not what’s happening here. “Ready for PlayStation 5” is a mere marketing tagline — nothing more than an attempt by Sony to hawk its own TVs. (In fairness, a “tagline” is exactly how Sony describes “Ready for PlayStation 5”; the company isn’t trying to pretend the line is something it’s not.) It’s a huge missed opportunity.

Sony’s first two quote-unquote PS5-ready TVs are the X900H and the Z8H, both of which are LED TVs that can display 4K120 content (or will be able to eventually, anyway). The X900H is a 4K TV that starts at $999.99 for the 55-inch model, while the Z8H is an 8K TV, with the cheapest option being the 75-inch model at an eye-watering $5,999.99.

While both TV sets are now available for purchase, the X900H doesn’t yet support 4K120 inputs — or any other HDMI 2.1 features. That will come at some point in the future with a firmware update. (Asked if the update will be available by the time the PS5 launches, a Sony representative told Polygon that the company could not comment on timing.) And for what it’s worth, the Z8H only supports 4K120 content on one of its four HDMI inputs. That means you wouldn’t be able to hook up a PS5 and an Xbox Series X to the TV simultaneously and experience 4K120 gaming on both consoles.

Both the X900H and Z8H will eventually offer gaming-oriented HDMI 2.1 features, in addition to the usual game mode, but the level of support is inconsistent. The upcoming X900H firmware update will add support for 4K120 content, VRR, and ALLM to the TV, along with enhanced audio return channel, or eARC. The Z8H already supports 4K120 content and eARC, as well as 8K content at up to 60 Hz — but it doesn’t offer VRR or ALLM, arguably the two most important items on the list for gamers. (For more information on HDMI 2.1 and its new features, check out our explainer on next-gen TVs.)


We asked Sony if it could provide a checklist of gaming-oriented features that a TV must support in order to qualify for the “Ready for PlayStation 5” tagline. The company did not. Instead, a spokesperson told Polygon that “Sony put the tag on the X900H and Z8H models because they are capable of displaying 4K/120fps and 8K gameplay images from PS5,” and noted that only the Z8H supports 8K content.

The Sony rep also highlighted some TV features that aren’t specifically geared toward gaming, pointing to the color and contrast delivered by the X1 family of image processors and “sound that comes directly from the TV screen.”

“These technologies make Sony’s X900H and Z8H truly ‘Ready for PlayStation 5,’” said the spokesperson. (These technologies don’t have anything to do with gaming performance.)

It’s disappointing to see that Sony is concerned more with marketing than with providing a service to prospective customers, because this idea has so much potential.

As we laid out in our TV explainer, the nascent market for HDMI 2.1-equipped TVs is a minefield of caveats and question marks. Just because a TV is billed as having an HDMI 2.1 port doesn’t mean the TV will offer the gaming-specific features that a new console owner would be interested in using with a PS5 or Xbox Series X. Can you imagine spending thousands of dollars on a new TV to pair with your next-gen console(s), only to discover that the set doesn’t support VRR? (It’s worth noting that Sony has only mentioned VRR support for the PS5, not ALLM.)

Now imagine a certification program that would clarify a key point for consumers: which TVs on the market support all of the PS5’s new HDMI 2.1-based video features. Buy one of these TVs to make the most of your new console, Sony could say, giving PS5 owners a measure of security in a second large purchase.

Here are the most obvious must-haves for such a checklist:

  • 4K120
  • VRR (for gaming without stuttering or screen tearing)
  • ALLM (to ensure responsive gaming)
  • eARC (the Xbox Series X won’t have an optical audio-out port, so HDMI will be the only way to output surround sound from the console; we don’t know about the PS5 yet)
HDMI 2.1 also features two other enhancements for gaming, quick frame transport (QFT) and quick media switching (QMS), that would be nice-to-have features in a TV. But specification sheets don’t seem to call them out, so it’s hard to tell if they’re included on new TV sets. And of course, outside of HDMI 2.1, a great TV for gaming needs to have minimal input lag.

As for 8K support, forget about it. Microsoft and Sony are both saying that their next-gen consoles are capable of 8K output. But we’re not convinced that there will be 8K content available via next-gen consoles — or anywhere, really — anytime in the near future. There’s no real justification for buying an 8K TV in 2020.




Looking at the two TVs that Sony is highlighting, it seems like the X900H would indeed fit the bill as a TV for next-gen consoles. In its review of the X900H earlier this month, Rtings described it as “an overall great 4k TV for nearly any type of content,” and found that it’s particularly well-suited to gaming, having measured very low input lag of 15.2 ms when playing in 4K HDR at 60 Hz. (In its news release this week, Sony said the X900H’s input lag is just 7.2 ms for 4K120 gaming, but that figure came from “internal testing conditions,” since the aforementioned firmware update hasn’t been released publicly.) Once the firmware update is live, the X900H will check all the boxes on our list of must-have HDMI 2.1 features.

HDMI 2.1 is starting to become more widely available. Aside from Sony, TV makers including LG, Samsung, TCL, and Vizio are offering HDMI 2.1 ports on at least some of their 2020 models. But with the profound lack of consistency in support for specific HDMI 2.1 features, consumers are being forced to research everything themselves, poring over spec sheets and support websites.

An industrywide certification program would be a win-win for Sony, Microsoft, and TV manufacturers — and, most importantly, for consumers. TVs and game consoles are expensive pieces of electronics, which makes the threat of buyer’s remorse particularly worrisome. A guarantee of a TV being “PlayStation 5-ready” or “Xbox Series X-ready” would make people feel more confident in buying both a console and a display, which could help increase sales on all fronts.
