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.

Glad I went with the lighter, more compact, and less power consuming (and probably cooler running) version of the console.
Where is this from ? Eurogamer?

In the grand scheme of things 10W doesn't mean a lot realistically :p

It's like one really good energy saver bulb.

lol yeah 10W isn't much. I'm more interested in knowing whether it has better thermals and lower fan noise as a result of there being no disc drive.

Someone on Reset Era estimated usable storage based on current OS allocations:

Assuming OS sizes don't change for next generation consoles, we have:

XSX: 931.32 GB - 151 GB (OS allocation) - 41 GB (Quick Resume allocation) = 739.32 GB usable
XSS: 465.66 GB - 151 GB (OS allocation) - 24 GB (Quick Resume allocation) = 290.66 GB usable
PS5: 768.31 GB - 69.32 (OS allocation) = 699 GB usable

Only 40 GB of difference between XBSX and PS5.

Not that full 1 TB would've been sufficient anyway. It's all about shuffling/deleting games.
It's taking into account the Quick Resume feature which Sony hasnt announced yet. 41gb is a conservative estimate. 3 AAA games would likely take more.

But for 2020, this is too low. 500gb for base consoles was also too low for its time. I doubt anyone stuck with that throughout the whole generation. Unless youre okay with shuffling /deleting games all the time.

Sony also needs to send out some early units to key people of interest (Keighley etc) to drum up pre-release hype.

MS has been making all the right moves in that regard so far.

    As for L4D, i think they are making Back 4 Blood which looks similar
    Link
  • SolitarySoldier SolitarySoldier:
    Yeah, a new non VR SP IP or a sequel would be best. They can't count to 3 so a sequel doesn't seem likely. Portal is my favourite and would love a sequel but don't expect one. I think I'll take whatever if they bring it on consoles too. Might go for VR as well.

  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    Porting old collections to new console would be a waste of time honestly.
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    Portal VR isn't a likely possibility. They did explore it while developing Alyx. The fast pace nature and continuous perspective changes through Portal might be a little too much to handle in VR.
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    They specifically said single player games so the announcement could be related to Portal. Or maybe they will revive Left 4 Dead as a SP game? Would be great if they announce something new as well.

  • SolitarySoldier SolitarySoldier:
    Would be sad if Valve exclusively focuses on VR. Koi non VR collection hee de do old games ka.
