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.

What a mess Sony has created. So much confusion and indecision. Aik tou they wait for MS to do everything first, uske baad bhi ye halat hai. I don't mind cross-gen or PS5-only exclusives but which game is which, what changed, how long one need not get a PS5, will the cross-gen games suffer, etc etc. What's next, are we going to get a Horizon FW PS5-only remake later in the generation because the version they are making right now may not be up to the mark?

Sony’s official PS5 specs confirm the console is an absolute unit




The biggest PlayStation ever

The PlayStation 5 will be Sony’s largest console ever, according to official system specifications released on Thursday, confirming speculation from fans that the next-gen PlayStation will be just absolutely massive.

Here are the official dimensions of the standard PlayStation 5 and the discless Digital Edition of the console, as revealed via the PlayStation Blog:

PLAYSTATION 5
  • Width: 15.35 inches (390 mm)
  • Depth: 10.23 inches (260 mm)
  • Height: 4.09 inches (104 mm)
PLAYSTATION 5 DIGITAL EDITION
  • Width: 15.35 inches (390 mm)
  • Depth: 10.23 inches (260 mm)
  • Height: 3.62 inches (92 mm)
Sony notes that those dimensions do not factor in the size of the included base, which will give the PS5 a larger footprint when standing upright.


Weighing in at 9.92 pounds (4.5 kg), the PlayStation 5 is also the second-heaviest PlayStation to date, behind the weighty launch-model PlayStation 3, which weighed 11 pounds (5 kg). The PS5 Digital Edition is a bit lighter at 8.60 pounds (3.9 kg).

Console shoppers will need to clear plenty of space on their shelves and TV stands, especially if they’re also buying an Xbox Series X this November. The higher-end next-gen Xbox measures 5.94 inches wide, 5.94 inches deep, and 11.85 inches high (15.1 cm by 15.1 cm by 30.1 cm). It’s a heavy one too: 9.81 pounds (4.45 kg).


Fortunately, for space-conscious consumers, Microsoft also has the cheaper Xbox Series S, which is almost 60% smaller than the Series X. In a vertical orientation, the Xbox Series S measures 10.8 inches (275 mm) tall, 5.9 inches (151 mm) deep, and 2.5 inches (63.5mm) wide.

So yes, the PlayStation 5 is big. Easily the biggest modern console to date. Might want to find the right spot for it before launch — if you manage to secure a pre-order, that is.

Lol sorting by sold/completed items on eBay for PS5, shows how much people have paid for.

Although not sure if actual sales or how eBay system works on such sales.

Digital edition preordered via Sony. The queue wait was surprisingly short. People on other forums were reporting wait times of 1 hour or so lol.






Special thanks to @amaga bhai for getting the order placed. If you're in Pakistan and got one of these emails and want to book your PS5, get in touch with him.

Congrats on the purchase, so you're gonna let that Sony invite lapse, or giving it away to someone ?

Gamestop still haven't announced trades for the PS5 yet, they were incredibly quick to put up XB pages within hours of the release date announcement :-/

Waiting for that before deciding which venue to take.

Just a heads up @Chandoo. If you're planning on sharing your invite with someone, you'll need to also give them the login details for the PSN ID you used to sign up, or the order won't go through.

This...weird looking thing, is bigger than OG Xbox and that's without the ugly blades and base stand?



Both consoles appear to be designed to primarily stand vertically, looking rather unwieldy on their sides.
Apparently not clear to some "geniuses" here.

PS5 pre-orders might not arrive on time, Amazon warns




Expect potential delays



Securing a PlayStation 5 pre-order has proven tricky over the last few days, as nearly every retailer seems to sell out of their stock the second it goes up. Amazon appeared to be a good bet for many PS5 hopefuls, but now, anyone who got a pre-order from the retail giant might want to think about backup options — at least, if they want their console to arrive on Nov. 12, the PS5’s U.S. release date.

An email from Amazon to numerous pre-order customers warns that the console might not show up on launch day. Sent Friday afternoon, the message — which was received by some Polygon employees with existing PS5 pre-orders — says that “you may not receive this item on the day it is released due to high demand. We’ll make every effort to get the item to you as soon as possible once released.”

The email goes on to say that customers can track their order via the Amazon website, and, should they wish, cancel unshipped items. It’s unclear if Amazon sent this email as a precaution to everyone who pre-ordered the PS5; Polygon has reached out to the company for comment, and we’ll update this article with any information we receive.


In the past, Amazon has bungled day-one shipments for new gaming hardware, like the Nintendo Switch, or popular games, like Animal Crossing: New Horizons — so even if the email is a “just in case” thing, it’s not outside the realm of possibility that some PS5 pre-orders might arrive later than anticipated.

It’s also worth noting that COVID-19 has, on the whole, greatly affected the availability and shipment of even basic goods. While Sony has promised that it is making more PS5 hardware than it did for the PS4 launch, actual shipments of the system might not be immune to things like the overall mail slowdown in the United States.
