The PlayStation 5 Is Starting To Take Shape - And We're Excited

The PlayStation 5 Is Starting To Take Shape - And We're Excited

Last month, Sony revealed some details about its upcoming PS5 console (assuming that's even what it'll be called) to Wired, and perhaps most impressively, its insanely fast loading times.

"Under the memorandum of understanding signed by the parties, the two companies will explore joint development of future cloud solutions in Microsoft Azure to support their respective game and content-streaming services".

However, at the Sony IR Day 2019 corporate strategy meeting, a video comparing the performance of the PS4 Pro against the supposed PS5 was shown, as reported by Gematsu. Using Spider-Man as an example, Sony showed that players on the PlayStation Next Gen could be ready to play in just 0.83 seconds, versus 8.1 seconds on a PS4 Pro. Also included as part of the game engine is a third-generation AMD Ryzen CPU with eight cores and a custom AMD Radeon Navi GPU.

The presentation confirmed that the PlayStation 5, as some are calling it, will feature backwards compatibility. Developers and publishers could release two versions of their games: a PS4 version and a PS5 version optimized to leverage the full brunt of the system's higher-end specs.

This makes ideal sense given the console's massive 98.6 million install base and Sony's emphasis on a seamless generational transition.

Not much is known about the PS5 as of the footage's release, with a written report previously being the only information that we had on Sony's next home entertainment video game console.

Back when Mark Cerny gave his unorthodox approach to discussing Sony's next-gen console via tech magazine interview (not an elaborately staged conference with members of various media wings), he offered insight on the hardware of their new gaming box.

Sony had dominated the console gaming world for quite some time now.

Sony believes that the PlayStation 5 will allow the fastest transition ever seen between its consoles. Ryan also highlighted some strong usage stats for the 96.8 million PlayStation 4 owners out there, who averaged 21 hours on the console per week in the last fiscal year.
