The PS5 is going to be a powerhouse of gaming. New titles are releasing alongside this console, plus its eco-friendly! Wow, Sony seems to be trying to set the standard for the next generation of consoles.
Here are a few confirmed specs for the PS5:
- 4K Blu-ray player – which is about time! We haven’t been able to watch DVDs on PlayStation consoles since PS3!
- VR capabilities – there are even hints at PS VR second-gen technology
- 3D Audio – meaning the sound will be heard clearer in three-dimensional spaces. This will be amplified by a custom Radeon Navi graphics card
- Backward Compatibility – Cross-Generation Gameplay means games can be played between PS4 & PS5. Plus games started on the PS4 can be completed on the Ps5 because it runs on the same tech
- Solid State Harddrive – this is going to help with the load times and games running seamlessly

Knowing the specs is cool. But let’s be honest, it is the games that are going to win us over. We know the PS5 will provide 4k and immersive gameplay. However, all of that doesn’t matter if the games are weak. Call of Duty, GTA, and 2K games are regular games that will release on the PS5. These games will be upping their graphics to coincide with the specs of the new-gen. Now for the juicy stuff:

PS5 is set to release in 2020 around November. I don’t think there will be any amazing bundles for this new console. Maybe a few bundles which include some of the hottest PlayStation games. The price hasn’t been released but it is said to release at a Suggested Retail Price or as Mark Cerny, “…that will be appealing to gamers…” TBH, that could be anywhere from $400 to $1000. The gaming industry seems to think we’ll buy anything…which we might but that’s not the point! Give us a good price so we can then turn around and buy the PS VR2.
