Some of the Features We Can Expect From Playstation 5
Sony comes out swinging
With the release of the next gen consoles creeping ever closer details about the Playstation 5 have been popping up everywhere, let's go over some of the confirmed features of the PS5 and get an idea of what to expect.
Sony has stated that console gaming is more of a niche market than PC gaming and that they want to heavily cater to that by focusing most of their marketing at "hardcore" gamers, what Sony actually means by hardcore gamers could be very different than what actual gamers would consider hardcore though.
Console exclusives have been such a big deal over the past decade or so but it seems that Sony is planning on cutting back on that and releasing most of their top tier games to all platforms, really it's a smarter business move but may make the consoles feel a lot less different from each other in this next generation.
Single player games can be what makes or breaks a console and although Sony is planning on releasing less of those the ones they do release are promised to be much better quality and developed for longer so they are more fluid and functioing games.
When it comes to hardware they aren't fooling around
Being the next gen of course there are going to be hardware improvements and Sony is pulling no punches when it comes to the power of the PS5. a processor based on AMD Ryzen, A 7nm Zen Micro Architecture ,a custom Radeon GPU with Ray Tracing and a 3D Audio Unit you are sure to get your bang for your buck here regardless of what price they end up settling on when it's released.
Another piece of hardware that will make a world of difference is the SSD (Solid State Drive) that the PS5 will come with built in, This will allow the PS5 to load and run games much faster, in a test the games loaded 18x quicker than on a PS4 Pro.
The PS5 will also support 8k graphics although most games will be released with 4k support, especially at release, this will bring a new kind of hyperrealism into our games.
Last but not least Sony has announced that they intend to put heavy focus on VR and a better overall VR experience , The new VR set will release at the same time as the console, I for one can't wait to see what they can do with it.
So with the information we have so far PS5 is shaping up to be a beast of a machine and could very well end the console wars before they even start in this next generation
