Who else is anxious about handling the upcoming PlayStation 5 gaming console?
Here is another tipster to keep your heads up, and this time around, it’s about the gaming console processing unit which teases to launch latest 2020. If you are familiar with tech news you do be aware that Sony recently announced to skip the E3 before any official announcements were made. Just a few days away from that, a source seems to have some tips regarding the upcoming PS5 production, although, they claim it will be announced sometime in the middle of next year, with the full reveal coming at a later PlayStation Experience Event.
The source describes that the PS5 as a monster, a “4K/60 stable and at the same time kinda monster,” adding that it features a Ryzen 8-core CPU, which aligns with previous rumors. Back in April, it was claimed that the console would also use a custom GPU based on AMD’s upcoming Navi architecture.
The source also informs that most developers already have PS5 dev kits while another rumor which surfaces at the beginning of the year teases that the machine will cost $500 at launch. Games-wise, the source says three big upcoming PS4 titles—Death Stranding, The Last of Us Part II, and Ghost of Tsushima—will all be PS5 launch games. We still don’t know if backward compatibility will be present, but it seems a safe bet.
In addition to what has been said already, we were also informed that the VR devices will also get an upgrade in which the current version’s breaker box is being moved inside the console, while the PSVR2 will have a built-in camera. Moreover, new PlayStation Move controllers are in development. Sony is also said to be testing virtual reality gloves for more realistic effects. While all of this is still, by the way, a compiled rumor, you are not expected to take it dear to heart, especially for game lovers. However, it doesn’t stop you from expecting mewer updates from the gaming brand.
