PS5 Roundup: Price, launch release date,


The November release of PlayStation 5 is coming soon. At its latest PS5 advertising event, Sony finally confirmed the release date console, price, and launch list. New information has been coming out slowly since then, and we keep tabs on everything below. There is a lot to understand and to make sense of it.

Perhaps most notable is the recent development in terms of the PS5's earlier plans. Contrary to previous pre-registration process, pre-generation Sony pre-renewal orders are now available to select vendors, including Walmart (now on sale) and GameStop. Other retailers such as Best Buy, Target, and Amazon are slowly following along.

In recent months, we have learned about the technical specs of the PS5, as well as its new DualSense controls and specific games. We’ve seen Unreal Engine 5 Gameplay work on the system, and while it’s not a full game, the technical details of the system mean we’ll be getting closer to photorealism in other games.

Sony plans to launch the PS5 on November 12 - just two days after the release of Microsoft's Xbox Series X. However, that supply shortage will not be due to COVID-19. Sony has denied it and said it would happen, saying the report was false. No matter, you definitely need to work hard to pre-order the console if you want to have it on the first date.

During 2019, it was revealed that the PS5 will also be able to keep up with PS4 regression and SSD storage, and will support PSVR. At the launch of June 11, Sony also unveiled a host of new console features, including an HD camera, wireless headset, and a charging station controller. You will need an adapter to connect certain PS4 accessories to the PS5, too, like the PlayStation Camera. As for software compliance and PS5 back, it seems that only PS4 will be supported - PS3, PS2, and PS1 games may not be included.

Below you can find all the details known about the upcoming Sony console.

 We may hear more details - big or small - in the coming months, so be sure to bookmark this page and check as often as possible. Also be sure to check out our PS5 vs. Comparison Guide Xbox Series X to get a rundown of the biggest difference we know about so far.

PS5 Design And Box Art

During its June 11 reveal event, Sony finally showed exactly what the new console looks like. Similar to the DualSense controller, it plays the construction of two white and black tones, with bright lights embedded between the two.

The PlayStation 5's disc-drive model, stands up straight. The console can also set its side using its base stand, and comes in a digital format that does not include a Blu-Ray disc drive, a PlayStation 5's disc-drive, which is upright. The console can also set its side using its stand base, and it comes in digital format only that does not include a Blu-Ray disc drive.

Sony has released more details about the console, which will come in two different versions at the launch. The above version includes a 4K Blu-ray disc drive, but you'll also see the PS5 Digital Edition console, which leaves the Blu-Ray drive and is quite small. The console can stand upright or on either side, in both cases using the black stand seen in the photo.

The PS5 will be one of the biggest game consoles ever, and according to PlayStation’s VP of UX design Matt MacLaurin, this is due to the amount of heat generated by the console. The inclusion of a leaked patent suggests that there may be some type of SSD console that will also consume such a large size, even though the additional Xbox Series X-related storage is small.

As per pre-order PS5 in the wild, box art images in both standard and digital forms are beginning to spread. You can see them in the gallery below.

Both standard and digital versions of the PS5 will be unveiled on November 12 - just two days after the release of Microsoft's Xbox Series X.

Price of PS5

The two main variants of the PS5 are sold separately: the standard PS5 will cost $ 499 and the digital version will cost $ 399. “I believe we will be able to pull it off with an SRP suggested retail price] that will appeal to gamers because of its high-quality feature,” said Mark Cerny, a leading PS4 developer currently working for its fan base. So take the latest news as you will.

Of course you wouldn’t expect Sony to say anything different, but one feels the company has learned from the high prices of the PS3 - and the subsequent struggles of the console - and the high cost of PS4 and subsequent success. This is especially true given Microsoft's own challenges at the beginning of the Xbox One life, as it sold the system for $ 100 full over the PS4 and was forced to cut to deal with this over time.

Does PS5 come back compatible with PS4 games?

Cerny has confirmed that the PS5 will be back for PS4 games, as the two consoles are built with the same internal design. According to the PS5 Showcase on September 16, PS5's back-to-back integration will come in the form of the PlayStation Plus Collection as an additional benefit to existing PSPS subscribers. This will give PS5 players access to the library of the best PS4 games, including God of War, The Last of Us Remastered, Persona 5, Monster Hunter World, and more. Currently, the full list is not provided, but you can find a list of everything verified so far below:

The PlayStation Plus collection should be the welcome news for those disappointed with PS4's failure to keep up with PS3, PS2, and PS1 games. However, Cerny noted that the 100 most played games of the PS4 will be played on PS5 when it is launched and all will run much better than before. “Running for PS4 and PS4 degrees in advanced forms also adds to the difficulty,” Cerny said. "The intensity is very high in this and some game code can't handle it. Testing should be done by topic.

He also discussed how back-to-back alignment would be considered in the PS5 internally, and how performance would not be removed from the next console sequence given the nature of their feature-building approach. "One way you can achieve backward compatibility is to install the previous console chip set to the new console, as we did with other PlayStation 3s," he said. "But that's right, it's very expensive. The best way to add any difference to the previous console concept is to customize the new console chip. back-up. The strategy is that, if the back-up integration is in the console, it's in it. It's not that lower costs will eliminate the back-up integration as it does in PlayStation 3. "

SIE president Jim Ryan told GameSpot site CNET retrospective and cross-gen is important for PS5 to help players have a seamless transition.

"Whether it is a relapse or it may be played for generations, we will be able to transform that community into the next generation," he said. "It won't be a binary option whether you have to be in the PlayStation 4 or the next gen to continue your friendship."

On acceptable terms too, the PS4 games will run much faster than your current console, in part because the PS5 will contain a solid state drive, unlike the hard drives sent by current boxes. Cerny showed the loading screen from Insomniac's Spider-Man taking less than a second in the PS5 development kit, compared to 15 seconds in the PS4 Pro.

Sony has shown faster loading times during the launch of investors in May. You can see the video below, taken by Wall Street Journal journalist Takashi Mochizuki.

Sony has not yet commented openly on the recurring theme of PS3, PS2, or PS1 games on PS5. However, the Ubisoft support site page says that those game programs will not be supported.

In an interview with The Washington Post, Ryan followed up on the issue of back-up and said it had been tested by "thousands" of games, and most of them work. In fact, he ensures that the "99 percent" library is compatible, leaving very few games to play in PS5.

PS5 and Disc Drive models

The company has confirmed that the PlayStation 5 will contain an AMD chip with a third-generation CPU based Ryzen. It will have eight Zen-nanometer microchip microchip 2. The console will also support 8K game, but this will depend on high-end TVs.

The drawings will be driven by a custom version of Ravion's Navi line. This graphics chip will support radiation tracking, something that is gaining popularity in movies and video games. Although traditionally considered to be a light source, Cerny says that this method can also improve the sound of the game. In fact, the PS5 will fully support 3D audio.

The above-mentioned SSD also has great details, as it means the games will load faster and can handle more things on the screen at the same time than the consoles powered by the current HDD. Bullets and cameras can move faster in gameplay, as locations can be loaded much faster than at present. It will also lead to faster installation times for games and patches.

The PS5 will have two options available - one has a disc drive and the other does not. With the exception of a small form difference, these consoles are similar in terms of strength and other features. PS5 discs will have a capacity of 100 GB, and the console will also support 4K Blu-Rays.

Sony has also confirmed that the PS5 can support 4K views at 120Hz for those with TVs that can support that. The 120Hz frequency range is almost double the standard TV standard. You can check out the full specs below

PlayStation 5 Specs Component Spec CPU 8x Zen 2 Cores at 3.5GHz (frequency frequency) GPU 10.28 TFLOPs, 36 CUs at 2.23GHz (frequency frequency) GPU Architecture Custom RDNA 2 Memory / Interface 16GB GDDR6 / 256-bit Memory Bandwidth 448GB / s Internal Custom Storage 825GB SSD IO Installation 5.5GB / s (Raw), Standard 8-9GB / s (Compressed) Extended Storage NVMe SSD Slot External Storage USB HDD Support Optical Drive 4K UHD Blu-ray Drive PS5 Controller

Sony opened up the PlayStation 5 controller view: "One of our goals with the next generation is to deepen the feeling of immersion while playing games, and we had the opportunity with our new controller to think that the concept of touch can add to that immersion.

To that end, two new features have been introduced with the new PlayStation 5 controller. First, we adopted a haptic response to replace the 'rumble' technology available to controllers from the 5th generation of consoles. With haptics, you feel a very wide range of response, so hitting a wall in a race car feels very different than doing something on the football field. You can also get an idea of ​​the variety of textures as you walk through grass or mud fields.

DualSense controller for PS5

"The new design is what we call flexible triggers, which are attached to the trigger buttons (L2 / R2). Engineers can arrange the triggers to feel the touch of drawing a bow and arrow or accelerating -road car through the rocky terrain. In combination with haptics, this can produce a feeling. "The creators of the game have begun to discover the first types of new controls, and we can no longer wait to see where their imagination goes with these new features."

On April 7, Sony shared more details, re-confirming that the controller is using a rechargeable battery. It also features a design, which you can see above - it has a toned look and features a built-in microphone, so you don't need to wear an online voice chat headset. In addition, the share button from PS4's DualShock has been replaced by what Sony now calls the Create button. Details of what the change is all about are not shared, as Sony explains in a PlayStation Blog post, "With Create, we also pioneer new ways for players to create content for epic games to share with the world, or just enjoy themselves."

SIE manager Jim Ryan added, "DualSense is showing a complete departure from the provision of our previous controls and has taken a firm stand for us by making a generational leap with the PS5. The new controller, along with many new PS5 features, will be a game changer - - To continue our work at PlayStation to push the boundaries of gaming, now and in the future. To the PlayStation community, I would like to thank you very much for sharing this exciting journey with us as we head towards the launch of PS5 in the 2020 holidays. in the coming months. "

PS5 Accessories

Along with the disclosure of the console look, Sony has outlined a number of accessories that will make it available next to the console. Here is the rundown so far:

PULSE 3D ™ Wireless Headset - offering 3D audio and microphone help with dual audio

HD Camera - with dual 1080p player lenses for streaming and their popular gaming moments

Media Remote - Remote with built-in microphone for roaming movies and streaming services

DualSense iteshi Charge Channel - Easy DualSense Charging amabili Two Wireless Controllers

You can pre-order these accessories in our PS5 pre-order guide


Unlike the Xbox Series X, which will be using the same interface as the Xbox One when it was launched in late 2020, the PS5 will get a complete overhaul. It will be a combination of what worked on PS4 and completely new concepts.

So far, we have only seen the launch screen of the system, which is not very bright, but will likely see a visual interface as it approaches launch.

Unreal Engine 5 Gameplay

On May 13 as part of Geoff Keighley's Summer Games Fest, Epic Games showcased Unreal Engine 5 for the first time with a game show running on PS5. This demo was not a complete game, but it was a piece of what the PS5 could do while using the new Epic Games technology. It features extremely realistic viewing, no intrusive texture, smooth frame, and the ability to transfer goods from movies directly to the games rather than redesigned. Unreal Engine 5 will enable Fortnite on PS5 by mid-2021.

This technology will not be limited to PS5, however. Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney made it clear a few days after the event that the Xbox Series X will support state-of-the-art technology, including its Lumen lightning systems and Nanite geometry.

Can I Use Extended Storage With PS5

The PS5 allows users to install non-Sony expandable storage, which gives you the option to purchase off-the-shelf components to get into the system. According to the Digital Foundry report, "NVMe PC drives will be running on the PlayStation 5, [but] the only problem is that the PC technology is far behind the PS5 [and] Sony needs to make sure they work properly."

In a comment by Cerny on the PS5, he noted that Sony is testing end-of-life expandable devices to make sure they can physically fit into the PS5 and deliver the required performance. The company has advised people not to buy cars before it comes up with its recommendations, so do not jump on the bandwagon right now in your efforts to prepare for the incoming launch. SSD storage compatible with PS5 is expected to come a "little over" launch, however.

Sony's approach is very different from the Xbox Series X, which will support external storage devices but only for Xbox One games and other media. For Xbox Series X games, they will need related cards.

Will PS5 support PSVR?

The current PSVR will be supported by PS5, as controllers of the PlayStation Move. "I will not go into details of our VR plan," said Cerny, "unless VR is very important to us and that the current PSVR headset is compatible with the new console." The system builder stopped talking about whether a new PSVR device would ever come out.


It is believed that the Sony data set for CES 2020 could bring some PlayStation 5 news, but that just happened. Sony's Jim Ryan appeared on stage to share some amazing stats on PS4 and unveil the PlayStation 5 logo, which you can see below. Not surprisingly, to maintain the same style used for later generations. Other than that, Sony had nothing new to say about the PS5 during a technology-focused event.

Game Cases

Sony does not move much from the construction of the PS4 PS5 game box, but it changes a few colors. PS5 game charges include a white banner with black letters instead of a green banner with white letters that they had previously displayed.

Energy Conservation

Although the Sonys have been silent on the PS5 since its announcement, they have come forward to reveal more details in conjunction with the announcement of the United Nations plan. The Playing for the Planet Alliance aims to make the video game industry more environmentally friendly. To that end, Sony has announced that the next generation of its hardware will use very little power when put in stop / sleep mode. Only one million PS5 users who turn on the energy-saving feature can save enough electricity to power 1,000 American homes. The company also tests carbon emissions and looks at energy-saving data centers.

PS5 Games: Launch the program and everything else to come

At its event unveiled September 16 for the PS5, we finally got confirmation of the current launch list, which includes the following games:

Destiny 2 will also be available on PS5, and current players on PS4 will be able to upgrade to the next game version for free. In addition, Destiny 2 will involve playing between generations, so PS4 and PS5 players will be able to play together.

The next Battlefield game will return to the PS5 in addition to the Xbox Series X in 2021, the DICE developer confirmed in April.

Control will be available on PS5 and those who purchase the Ultimate Edition of the game will receive the next free upgrade. However, those who buy any other version of the game will have to buy it again.

Another game that could be confirmed for PS5 is the return of Final Fantasy VII, after Square Enix president and CEO Yosuke Matsuda said: "I believe our teams have made it possible for the game to support the next generation and the current generation. , so I'm not too worried about that and I believe fans will be able to enjoy it both, including the next- comfort generation. "

However, it is not clear whether Matsuda was referring to the dedicated PS5 version of the game, or if he was referring only to the PS4 version played on PS5 in the background. If it is the latest, then we can count all PS4 games as played in PS5.

The new PlayStation 5 display will allow you to see more details about friend games without opening the apps themselves. "Or it will be quick to play start-up games," said Cerny, "We don't want the player to start the game, see what's going on, start the game, see what's going on. Multiplayer servers will provide real-time console and activity. and what rewards you can get for achieving it - and all those choices will be reflected in the UI. As a player you just jump right into whatever you like. "
