PS5 Release Date, Price, Performance, PS4 PRO Specs

PS5 Release Date, Price, Performance, PS4 PRO Specs:- Gaming consoles are always exciting, especially when the console in question is the PlayStation 5. Sony’s major installment of the PlayStation consoles.

The PlayStation has always been the greatest console as it used for playing more widely as compared to any other consoles. The PlayStation was first launched in 1996 with PS1 than in 2000 with PS2 than in 2006 with PS3 than in 2013 with PS4.

Now it is time for the PS5, there are many ongoing rumors related to PS5 which resulted in thousands of searches related to PlayStation 5.

While we’re not sure when the PS5 is coming, Sony President and CEO Shawn Layden confirmed in an interview that the PlayStation 5 would be coming eventually.

It makes sense Sony isn’t jumping on the next-gen console yet. The company practically just released the PS4 Pro. It is a mid-generation console upgrade that’s expanded the hardware’s functionality significantly. And probably still sees a lot of life in the fourth-generation PlayStation.

Sony has a system that’s capable of  HDR and 4K upscaled gameplay. For most gamers, it is more than enough for the time being. The console’s existence and recent success forced us to think whether a proper follow-up to the PS4 will ever be needed. We might be moving toward a more iterative hardware cycle.

PS5 Release Date Predictions:-

Some Analysts are predicting we could see the PlayStation 5 anywhere between 2019 and 2020. PS5 is rumored that the console could arrive in the latter half of 2019. Some say that PS5 will have support for next-generation virtual reality. It will be best and will support most of the games as compared to today.

Analysts are predicting Sony could launch the PS5 in either 2019 or 2020. Most recently, NPD analyst Mat Piscatella said he expects the PS5 release date to be in 2020 and would be surprised if it launches before then.

He said: “2020 is what I have in my forecast. The data suggest there’s no need to do it earlier. But I’ve been surprised before so I’m as interested in this as anyone else.”

While Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot predicted at the end of last year that the PS5 release date would be a “minimum of two years away”. This would put the PS5 as launching in late 2019 or 2020.

As we wait for official confirmation, an announcement Sony made this week has led fans to speculate that the PS5 release date could be around the corner.

Sony PlayStation has had an amazing year. Especially after winning  God of War as the game of the year most recently.

PlayStation 5 Rumours:-

Sony hasn’t unveiled plans for the upcoming PlayStation 5 yet, but it seems that one of its features may have already been leaked. According to a very recent update to a Sony patent, the PS5 may include backward compatibility to enable users to play their PlayStation 4 games on the new console.

The latest update related to Sony’s patent was first reported by PlayStation Universe. This patent was basically listed back in the year 2015, just two years after the launch of the PS4 gaming machine. The updated patent notes, “Backward compatibility testing of software in a mode that disrupts timing.” It’s now being considered that backward compatibility may be one of the new features of the upcoming PS5 system.

According to the Comicbook.com, the update to the patent doesn’t indicate that the PS5 will come with backward compatibility. However, it really does look like Sony is seriously considering it for its PS4 successor.

PlayStation Now Compatibility:

The company has been uncertain till now with backward compatibility, to say the least. The best part is that the sony will fully support its cloud service (PlayStation Now) for the upcoming console. PlayStation Now service lets users play some classic PS2 titles and a few PS3 games on the PS4 system. Beyond that, Sony seems really unenthused about the feature.

Sony global sales chief Jim Ryan told Time last year: “When we’ve dabbled with backward compatibility, I can say it is one of those features that is much requested, but not actually used much,” He added “That, and I was at a ‘Gran Turismo’ event recently where they had PS1, PS2, PS3, and PS4 games, and the PS1 and the PS2 games, they looked ancient, like why would anybody play this?”

The software giant Microsoft has adopted a different belief in terms of backward compatibility. The company already has over 400 Xbox 360 titles available to play on the Xbox One console which is a good thing.

The most popular rumor right now is that Sony may give out first details about the next-generation console during E3 2018 this coming June.

Another latest PS5 rumor that’s making whisper right now is that Sony has already sent out PS5 dev kits to third-party developers ahead this year. This is according to supposed industry insider Marcus Sellars. Sellars didn’t provide any evidence on how he got this information, so it’s best to take it with a grain of salt.

PlayStation 4 PRO Specifications

PS5 Release Date, Price, Performance, PS4 PRO Specs

The PlayStation 4 Pro ($400) is the big version of Sony’s latest lineup, offering more than either of the other two models—including 4K and HDR support for games and video.

Sony also updated the HDMI port on the PS4 Pro to HDMI 2.0. This newer HDMI standard also features HDCP 2.2, an updated form of copy protection which allows services like Netflix to output 4K content.

Since this is the 4K model, Sony also bumped the GPU (graphics processing unit) up a notch or two. Which means there are more pixels to push. The more pixels the unit needs to push, the harder the GPU has to work to do it.

Boost Mode is an exclusive feature for the PS4 Pro that was released with the 4.50 system software. Basically, this feature allows existing PS4 games to put that extra GPU power to good use. This dramatically improve graphical performance. Or, in simpler terms: it makes existing games look better and play smoother, even if they weren’t designed for the PS4 Pro.
