Playstation 5

I don't think there's thread about Sony's new console, so here it is.

Mark Cerny finally broke silence and we got some news. You can read it in detail here:

https://www.wired.com/story/exclusiv...t-gen-console/

But if you want summary:

- "Playstation 5" isn't its official name, and Mark calls it just a "next-gen console"
- it definitely won't have its premiere in 2019
- Mark says it isn't just your next "PS console", but one that will bring revolution
- "CPU is based on the third generation of AMD Ryzen line and contains eight cores of the company's new 7nm Zen 2 microarchitecture." - better graphics and amp in memory system's size and speed
- The GPU is a custom variant of Radeonís Navi and "will support ray tracing, a technique that models the travel of light to simulate complex interactions in 3D environments. " - part about ray tracing is especially impressive, it doesn't just make visuals more stunning, but will have its applications in audio (like enemies hearing your footsteps)
- it will support 8K graphics
- "The AMD chip also includes a custom unit for 3D audio that Cerny thinks will redefine what sound can do in a videogame." - so it seems there's a lot of focus on audio
- it will feature SSD so its hardware will be simply on another level; it will also reduce loading time
- "At the moment, Sony wonít cop to exact details about the SSD (...), but Cerny claims that it has a raw bandwidth higher than any SSD available for PCs." - that's a pretty bold statement, we will see how it turns out

That's mostly hardware as Mark and Sony still aren't ready to talk about software, games and/or price. But he still provided a few details:

- it will still support physical media (THANK GOD), so it won't be just digital
- it will be backward-compatible with PS4 games; yeah it's sad that only ps4 is included here, but (arguably) the most famous titles were remastered on ps4 so it isn't that bad, better than nothing right?


We won't know when new info will appear, but definitely not on E3 as Sony won't be attending.

So If i want to play uncharted 4, having Ps5 is better than Ps4 Pro?
Because I'm still waiting for Ps4 Pro prices to go down and yet there is a better one replacing it?

I've only seen Ps4 pro prices go down as low as $340-$350. Maybe Sony will drop its retail price down later this year? just a guess

Yeah, PS5 will be better than PS4 Pro - at least that's what Sony is telling us. But I've played Uncharted 4 on PS4 Pro and it looks absolutely stunning. I have no idea how PS5 is gonna top this.

edit: ofc that's only if your TV supports 4K resolution and HDR, otherwise I wouldn't bother buying Pro at all.

If you have a choice then I would recommend to wait for PS5 release. Buying PS4 Pro at this point wouldn't make much sense, especially since price is still pretty huge.

I'm really interested in the SSD and bunch of developers that are already planning to release stuffs for this console. It's also nice for them not to release it this year since that would help me collect money first before deciding to buy it..
