Sony PlayStation 5 : The Next Gen Begins

PS5 Release Date, PS5 Games, PS5 Power vs Xbox One X, PS5 Price Speculation - All the PS5 Info lets discuss



Here are all the rumors and speculation surrounding the PS5, including a potential PS5 release date, power, and launch games of Sony's inevitable PS5. Is the PS5 releasing in 2019?


What we Want From the PS5 Speculation aside, what would we ideally want from the PS5? Backwards compatibility for PS4 games would be brilliant, simply because you'd be able to carry over classics like the Shadow of the Colossus remake to the next console generation. We've seen how well Microsoft is handling backwards compatibility with its Xbox One consoles (including getting amazing results updating Xbox 360 games to run in 4K on Xbox One X), and something similar on PS5 would be great.

In terms of pure power, the PlayStation 5 has to significantly exceed the power of the Xbox One X. This means featuring more games running in 4K at 60FPS. If the PS5 can deliver about 10 TF of power we'd be happy, as this would allow devs to create games that look a generation ahead of what we've got now.

But what would the dream launch lineup be for the PS5? Death Stranding and The Last of Us: Part 2 are hugely anticipated blockbuster games, with the former especially looking to push the performance of whatever system it's on to the very limit. We've also mentioned Ghost of Tsushima and a sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn, and the latter would be the perfect way to kick off a new console cycle from Sony.

PG's favorite Richard Leadbetter on how developers are happy with developing for the PS5:


Every single developer I've spoken to developing for PS5 has been evangelising how easy it is to work for, Its essentially the same development environment as PS4 and you scale up from there, for the new powers, the features and whatnot. I can't stress enough how happy developers seem to be with this situation
There is simply no doubt that the XSX on paper, the more powerful machine. However again, speaking to developers the development environment they are dealing with some people seem to be extremely happy with it, other people are having problems with it because they've moved away from what was previously the XDK which was specific for the Xbox to the GDK which is a more general environment for PC and for Xbox and even Xbox one is encompassed by the GDK

The sales are there ofcourse, different types. But the pros of buying physical is ofcourse you get it for cheap even and then resell it to recover the cost, whereas on digital you'll be locked from doing the same.
Yes, main reason a fully digital future is not viable at this time.

So when you buy a physical copy and install, it doesnt register to a single PSN account and can be sold again multiple times to be used on multiple PSN accounts?

No, disc games don't imprint a permanent license on your profile, you need to have the disc in tray for that license to be valid. It's not like digital where it creates a permanent license on your profile.

MS wanted to do something like this at the start of the xbox one generation, that physical copies would require activation and be tied to a specific account, they wanted to eliminate the used game market. But the backlash was so severe that they abandoned it.

It led to arguably the best corporate video ever:

Yes that's true.

Morever the option provided by Sony to game publishers is that they can provide the opportunity to convert physical game of PS4 to digital PS5 game, and the requirement, confirmed as far as I know, would be to use the disc for authentication in order to play the digital copy on PS5. So one will have to keep the disc in PS5 in order to play the same game on digital format.

Yes, this is the same method used on XBO for the 360 backwards compatibility. If you have the disc in the tray, it will not just run the game off the disc, it will still download an entire new BC compatible version of the game, you just need the disc in the tray at all times for verification.

    So anyway, unlike most of the haters, i actually finished Cyberpunk 2077 yesterday. I'd rate it a 7/10 honestly. It's not bad, it's just underwhelming in it's gameplay aspects. It's storyline is decent & there are some deep moments in the game. The friend/foe relationship between V & Johnny (Keanu) is fun to watch as well. CDPR should've put more effort into it, it could've been a grand game.

    I guess they're using the similar upsampling technique they've always used. Just like how Xbox One X renders at a base 1440p resolution then reconstruction makes it to 4K

  • IzHee IzHee:
    1440p on consoles not 1220p which was a mistake on their end

    Metro only has RTGI so obviously the console version will have that.

    lets see if 4A delivers
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    they likely made engine improvements as well so all things considered the console output is about as expected. Full RT suite was never gonna happen
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    yes, the benchmarks you shared which showed how a 2060 is reportedly trailing behind in the 1440p/60 FPS mode, and we can't do a proper RT comparison because you can't unlock th FPS on console to see what kind of overhead there is :p
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    i just showed the benchmarks, but whatever i guess

  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    DLSS Is the real game changer as I have said many-a-time

  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    not with RT and DLSS off at least :p

  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    but looks like 2060 is pulling above its weight with North Light engine
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    that a $500 console is able to be in reach of a 2080/3080 is an incredible thing in itself
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    there can't be universal equivalent since every engine performs differently

    we dont know if the settings are equivalent but the results vary with every developer, there's no universal equivalency right now
