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.

This is the best decision they could have made with the game, certainly didn't seem like a $70 title.

Being on PS+ for 2 months may end up giving it the Rocket League momentum.

lmao, this just proves what a useless metric volume was when it comes to PS5 with its weird curvy design. they went overboard with cooling, used variable clocks, have a less powerful GPU and still had to make it that huge.

^ I think both the machines look fairly ugly in horizontal orientation. Vertically however, the PS5 looks bomb. Its like a machine from the future lol. The series X doesnot look bad by any stretch but i think its for people that are more into minimalist stuff.

Yeah I agree. The disc drive on the PS5 is in a pretty weird spot when placed horizontally. The Digital edition seemed to look better horizontally in the renders. Still waiting to see an actual picture, though.

The ps5 reminds of terrible Alienware cases of 2005 era - the cheap looking plastic doesn't do it any favor too. The series X looks minimalistic which is nice but it's understandable if it looks boring to some people

Yep. Cheap tacky Alienware best describes it in all orientations.

It also makes the OG Xbox look small lmao

New NXGamer video detailing the recent string of patches some PS4 games have received and what it translates to for the PS5.

Interesting enough, I did not know that Days Gone's install size has been cut in half via patching since the game's launch. Went down from 64~GB to 37~GB now.

Sony's probably experimenting with this stuff to help minimize game installs for the 700~ GB only available space for users.

Controller Impressions are super impressive across the board. I think haptics are one of the most underrated things whenever we talk about controller in general and its great that Sony has put special emphasis on the controller this time around.
