The PS5 consoles have finally been revealed and we have all the official details ahead of the launch later this year.

The PS5 configuration uncover was a stun, and it included the unexpected revealing of the PS5 Digital Edition – a smoothed out, all-computerized support without a circle drive. It’s another sign that reassures makers have their eye on a future without physical media. While Sony didn’t uncover the PS5 cost or discharge date, we presently know a great deal of what we can expect when the PlayStation 5

Sony officially confirmed some details, including the official name and rough release date, back in October 2019, and, at CES 2020, Sony confirmed the official PS5 logo. Sony has also leaked information about the PS5 DualShock 5 controller, which we now know to be the DualSense controller.

PlayStation 5 will come with these specs

  • CPU: AMD Zen 2-based CPU with 8 cores at 3.5GHz (variable frequency)
  • GPU: 10.28 TFLOPs, 36 CUs at 2.23GHz (variable frequency)
  • GPU architecture: Custom RDNA 2
  • Memory interface: 16GB GDDR6 / 256-bit
  • Memory bandwidth: 448GB/s
  • Internal storage: Custom 825GB SSD
  • IO throughput: 5.5GB/s (raw), typical 8-9GB/s (compressed)
  • Expandable storage: NVMe SSD slot
  • External storage: USB HDD support (PS4 games only)
  • Optical drive: 4K UHD Blu-ray drive

Extra Features :-

  • Currently available PSVR hardware will be compatible with the PS5.
  • Built-in haptic motors in the DualShock 5 will vibrate in various ways depending on the surfaces in a game as well as “adaptive triggers” that could give add resistance in required scenarios.
  • The PS5 will let gamers install individual game modes, instead of forcing them to install an entire game. That means if you’re not interested in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare single-player campaign, you can choose to only install the multiplayer. (It’s fair to assume you’d still have to buy the whole game though.)
  • The PS5’s home screen will show gamers mission details, or if friends are currently squadded up online.
  • It will support 8K resolution. That might not matter much right now, but it could be relevant a few years down the line when 8K TVs are more commonplace.
  • Sony announced a slew of PS5 peripherals that will likely be sold separately including: the DualSense controller Charging Station, Pulse 3D Wireless Headset, a media remote, and an HD camera

PlayStation 5: DualSense controller :-

With each new PlayStation comes a new DualShock controller, except this time it doesn’t. Sony has gone to the next level and created the DualSense controller to partner the PS5.

It’s a sleek and modern-looking design with a two-tone finish instead of the standard single hue of the DualShocks. Sony has promised that the new controller “will captivate more of your senses as you interact with the virtual worlds in PS5 games. The features of DualSense, along with PS5’s Tempest 3D AudioTech, will deliver a new feeling of immersion to players.”

That added immersion is set to come across primarily through a more evolved sense of touch. Haptics have replaced the rumble technology to create a broader range of more realistic feedback. Players will now get more nuanced sensations such as the slow grittiness of driving a car through mud. The L2 and R2 trigger buttons feature adaptive, programmable resistance so that players can feel more or less tension through certain actions. Source :- whathifi

Pricing :-

Chances are, the information is not true at all. However, just in case it is, the PlayStation 5 will be released on November 20, 2020. PlayStation 5 comes in two editions; PS5 and PS5 Digital. Amazon France had the pricing details for both. The PS5 is listed at €499 whereas the PS5 Digital is listed at €399. In terms of US pricing, this brings the price of PS5 to $565 and $450 for PS5 digital.

PS5 was touted to be an expensive console. The numbers that were rumored were pretty high. This news would come as a relief to many. It is expensive compared to the previous generation, but it brings a lot to the table.

The digital edition is cost-friendly. Then again, there are only a few who still use discs. PS5 has backward compatibility, which would make it convenient, given the fact that PS4 users would surely have all the discs lying around. Source :- EssentialSports
