Sony has already talked several times about the PS5 game console and what it will give gamers when it launches. It has promised that the price will be appealing given the console's hardware, which sounds like a nice way of saying it will be expensive but powerful. We recently saw a glimpse at how much more powerful the PS5 will be than the current PS4 Pro with a video showing the load times for the same game compared between both consoles. At the same event where that load time video was recorded, Sony execs also talked about PS5 backward compatibility. Not only will the backward compatibility work for single-player PS4 games, but it will also work for multiplayer games. Sony went so far as to... Read more...
Sony is much more forthcoming with details on the coming PlayStation 5 than it has been with information on past consoles. An alleged PS5 dev kit has been seen in the wild already and Sony has also said that the pricing of the PS5 will be appealing, given the advanced features and hardware that it offers. A new video has turned up that is from Wall Street Journal reporter Takashi Mochizuki. He was at a Sony event where a demonstration pitting the load times of the current PS4 Pro and the coming PS5 was shown off. The game used in the demo is Marvel's Spider-Man. The speed difference between the two consoles is dramatic, and PlayStation chief Mark Cerny hinted at these blazing fast load speeds... Read more...
When Sony releases its PlayStation 5 console in 2020 (or whenever), it will not be edible. We are not expecting it to be, anyway. However, it will contain a "special sauce" whipped up by AMD, in the form of a custom system-on-chip (SoC) based on the company's upcoming Zen 2 CPU and Navi GPU architectures. AMD is understandably excited about the PS5. The company has a stranglehold on the high-end console market, and major console launches are a bit of a big deal—they only come around once every few years for Sony and Microsoft, in between which are less exciting incremental upgrades, like the PlayStation 4 Slim and Xbox One S. As we have already covered, the PS5 represents a major advancement... Read more...
We all know that Sony's upcoming PlayStation 5 is going to be a performance monster; well at least compared to the existing PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro. In an interview last month, the chief architect for PlayStation hardware confirmed that the PlayStation 5 will be packing a 7nm Zen 2 CPU along with a 7nm Navi-based Radeon GPU. That should be more than enough to deliver stout 4K gaming muscle across the board complete with support real-time ray tracing effects. Sony has even hinted at the possibility of 8K gaming for the PlayStation 5. Now, a new rumor is making the rounds, and it comes from industry insider Benji-Sales. According to his [since deleted] tweet leak, the... Read more...
Sony has been rather forthcoming with details of its next generation PlayStation 5 game console and though the new system isn’t as close to reality as we would like, there’s certainly a lot of information on the AMD-powered game cosole out there that we’ve been mining and reporting recently on for passionate gamers. Let’s run down a list of what we know and see if we can paint a clearer picture of what to expect with the next generation Sony PS5. PlayStation 5 Specs And Backwards Compatibility Sony hasn't been shy about committing to what gamers can expect under the hood of the machine that some say has been running around in certain developer circles in dev kit form...

For those that are into console gaming (versus the clearly superior PC gaming experience), the revelation of the hardware details behind the upcoming PlayStation 5 gaming console were incredibly exciting. As we learned from PlayStation hardware chief Mark Cerny, the PlayStation 5 will be powered by an octa-core AMD Zen 2-based Ryzen processor that is backed by a Radeon Navi GPU. Cerny also revealed that the SoC will have a dedicated 3D audio hardware along with a super-fast SSD that offers superior performance to anything that that is currently available on the consumer market. Oh, and we can't forget that that due to it having a similar architecture, the PlayStation 5 will... Read more...
It feels like the current generation Xbox and PlayStation consoles have been around forever, if clumping up iterations into the same generation (such as the Xbox One, Xbox One S, and Xbox One X for Microsoft, and PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Slim, and PlayStation 4 Pro for Sony). New consoles are on the horizon, however, and Sony recently revealed some tantalizing details about its PlayStation 5. How can Microsoft respond? Before we go any further, forget about the disc-less Xbox One S All Digital edition that is up for preorder for $250. That is not the next-gen Xbox we want to focus on. It's not a next-gen console at all, and is basically an Xbox One S without the optical drive, which makes... Read more...
We’ve been hearing a lot over the past few months about the hardware that will power the next generation consoles from Microsoft and Sony. Most speculation has centered around both consoles being powered by 7nm AMD Zen 2-based processors that are backed with 7nm Navi-based Radeon GPUs. Today, a new report is shedding more light on the hardware that will specifically be going inside the Sony PlayStation 5 – or whatever the gaming console will end up being called. Wired has an exclusive sit-down with Mark Cerny, who serves as the lead system architect for the PlayStation 5 (it was also a title he held for the current generation PlayStation 4 family of gaming consoles). Cerny... Read more...
Sony is hard at work on its next-generation of game console, but we still have no idea when that console will land. Some rumors expect to see the PlayStation 5 land in 2019 while others expect a 2020 release for the new console, which will reportedly have an 8-core AMD Ryzen processor. Whatever the launch window is, the new console will undoubtedly need gorgeous, blockbuster game to showcase its hardware capabilities. To that end, new Sony job listings have turned up seeking people to join a development team for an unannounced AAA game. The intriguing part about the job listings is a call out that the design team will focus on the "next chapter of cinematic storytelling." One of the team... Read more...
Last week, redditor RuthenicCookie made the declaration that Sony would be skipping E3 next year. The very next day, Sony confirmed that it would not be making an appearance on stage at E3 2019. Once RuthenicCookie's prediction proved to be true, redditors were quick to see if there were any additional rumors waiting to be spilled – and of course, there were. According to RuthenicCookie, the PlayStation 5 will be announced sometime in mid-2019, and a full reveal will occur later in 2019 at a PlayStation Experience Event. While the official announcement and unveil could happen next year, the actual console reportedly won't go on sale until as early as May 2020 or as late as November... Read more...
Scuttlebutt has been going around for months now that suggest Sony could be getting ready to plop its next-generation game console onto the market this year. Other rumors have suggested that it might be several years out, 2020 to be exact, before the PlayStation 5 breaks cover. Sony is still selling PS4 consoles like gangbusters and it hasn't been long since the PS4 Pro launched making 2020 more likely. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has now announced that its 7nm CLN7FF chips have gone into volume production throwing more fuel on the PS5 rumor fire. In a chat with AnandTech, TSMC president C.C. Wei said, "More than 50 products tape-outs have been planned by end of this year... Read more...
