Sony PlayStation 5 : The Next Gen Begins

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.

They may not go ahead with this design now that they have an accessory for the rear buttons. Though I would appreciate a controller with it built-in.

Like I said before, i think the accessory is there solely *because* of these buttons being in the DS5. The accessory is just to ensure forward compatibility with the DS4. No wonder it literally came as an announcement out of nowhere.

Sony has a patent for a new PlayStation controller



The controller patent features two new buttons



Image

On Dec. 26, Sony was approved for a patent on a new type of PlayStation controller. The patent is on the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) database, but it isn’t quite clear what Sony intends to do with the controller.
The design itself is similar to the familiar DualShock 4 design that most players are used to with the PlayStation 4. The new controller has the same layout for its face buttons, directional pad, and analog sticks. The only real departure on the front of the controller is that there’s no PlayStation button visible on the patent design.
The back of the controller is where things get a little more interesting. The patent contains potential designs for the new controller — though they aren’t final — that include two new buttons. The new buttons appear to be programmable to perform the functions of other buttons on the controller, so you could have them do the same thing as the circle or square buttons if you wanted.


Image: Sony via WIPOThe two back buttons can be activated with triggers in most of the proposed designs. While they seem to be located directly behind the analog sticks on most of the proposed layouts in the patent, there is mention that they might move to other places. This could mean that the controller is customizable, or just that Sony wants to cover its bases for possible design iterations.
While this new patent’s timing is a little conspicuous considering the PlayStation 5 is set to come out in 2020, there is no indication which PlayStation this controller is actually designed for. It’s worth noting that the proposed design does feature a micro-USB port on the top of the controller, the same as the DualShock 4, while the PlayStation 5 controller is supposed to have a USB-C port instead, so it’s possible this is an iteration of the older controller.
I hope this isn't the final design. Sony still can't learn how to place buttons but that is part their stubbornness to stick with the stupid touch pad at the front. The back button look damn awkward.

DS3 was the last good controller they made. Well technically the DS2 but that DS3 didn't mess up the design as much as DS4 did.

Why is an individual who's PS4, as per him, collects dust and who's controller of choice on PC is the Steam controller so bothered about the Dualshock 5's design or its inclusion of a touch pad?

As someone who's played 100s of games using the DS4, I'm glad the DS5 will have a touch pad. It's utility is more prominent in VR games.

The test leaks that emerged in recent days tell us nothing about the CPU component but confirm 36 available compute units running at 2.0GHz - which while unconfirmed would give us a 9.2 teraflop GPU for PlayStation 5.
https://www.eurogamer.net/amp/digit...-spec-leak-analysed?__twitter_impression=true

PS5 might be significantly less powerful than Series X 12TF, as both consoles share the same GPU architecture. This is probably the only way Sony can hit the $399 price point.

I assume going by the leaks, the gap will be much bigger than Ps4pro < Xbox one X?

Everything is assumption and heresy right now, supposedly these leaks DF is citing are based on outdated github information.


Also, supposedly there is one Xbox SKU which is 4.1 TF, which is much slower in sheer TF count compared to Xbox X. If these rumors are true it will probably be like XBX>PS4 Pro>BaseXBO levels of power differential between the 3.

Is it confirmed that lower tier Xbox will be Gcn powered? That's kinda wack if you ask me.. that architecture is already 8 years old

we literally don't know anything confirmed about these consoles, the only thing is MS's vague statement to gamespot that the next xbox will be 4x the power of the XBO and 2x the XBX. People are getting the 12 TF count from that (XBX is 6 TF).

Itni bhi lutt nahi machi ab...

We know about 8 cores/16 threads Zen 2 CPU and that GPU is based on custom RDNA GPU with ray tracing and some form of SSD. This much is locked at this point.

I'd say Zen 2/RDNA/SSD are the fundamental building blocks and hence the most important specs. The nitty gritty details will be kept secret for obvious competitive advantage. Clock speeds, RAM and SSD capacity could be altered in the current phase but not the rest.

Maybe a couple of cores and portion of RAM will be left explicitly for the OS like last gen. So effectively it will still be a 6 core/12 thread console.

PS5 was supposed to be 8 tflops, it is actually higher!

And, XsX was supposed to be 4 times as powerful as the XBX, it is only Twice as much! Boo..

Both XB and PS have promised hardware based ray tracing so .. yeah likely they will have something akin to that.

During their annual hardware CES keynote, Sony gave some information on PS5 (nothing new) and PS4 has surpassed 100m units sold. Only the fourth console to have done so and the third in the PS family.

EVERYONE PLEASE READ THIS As far as all the leaks are concerned I’ve looked into it and done my homework and 9.2TF of next generation architecture is of the same equivalent of 12TF of this generation architecture because they are roughly 25% more efficient and that is a 100% verified (FACT)So that would actually make the PS5 if 9.2TF also twice as powerful as the Xbox One X. Which is where these 12TF Xbox series X numbers actually came from. All Microsoft have ever said is that the Xbox series X will be twice as powerful as the Xbox One X, they have never said 12TF EVER again a (FACT)On top of that It isn’t (ACTUALLY) confirmed that the XBOX Series X is more powerful than the PlayStation 5 (OVERALL) the current leeks only suggest the GPU is more powerful. But what people aren’t realising is that the XBOX Series X GPU will also have to deal with ray tracing which will take anything up to 35% of its power to do so. (DEPENDING ON DEVELOPERS USAGE)However according to the same leeks the PlayStation 5 has a separate way of dealing with ray tracing outside of the GPU so developers will not need to draw power from the main GPU when adding ray tracing and that may give the PlayStation 5 the edge in graphical power overall. (WE JUST DON’T KNOW ENOUGH YET)We also know PlayStation 5 will have 3-D audio technology at a hardware level as well; Yet that is not something confirmed in the XBOX serious X. Plus there is a big possibility that the PlayStation 5 may have a superior custom built SSD and the XBOX Series X may only be using a standard SSD; which would also make a significant difference, but the PlayStation 5 would then have an advantage. (. (AGAIN WE JUST DON’T KNOW ENOUGH YET)So people need to stop saying there is this massive 3TF power difference because that is unlikely to be true and a lot of people are going to be very disappointed.

    I hope Microsoft acquire SEGA or Capcom next they need some footprint in Japan and Japanese games on their service.
