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.

Dave Lee seems to be impressed with the Liquid Metal.

Yes, Dave's video lays it down in very simple terms why the sheer engineering of the console is superb.

But that's only the engineering of the hardware, the software etc will be a whole different subject.


Over two years spent on R&D'ing this old form $5 solution lol.

One renowned YT techie with 3 million subscribers versus one loud forum boi with a hidden PSN profile.

Whose word to take :p

Among them, 15% said they managed to successfully pre-order a next generation console. Within this group, 72% went for the disc edition of the PS5, 30% went for the Xbox Series X, 10% for the PS5 digital edition and 8% for the Xbox Series S.
The thirst is real.

The study was conducted from September 23 to 25, 2020, using a sample of 511 US-based respondents

lol

Looking at the next-gen game offering, 52% of the respondents who have pre-ordered a PS5 (or who intend to buy one by the end of 2020) said that Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales was the exclusive game that encouraged them to do so, followed by God of War: Ragnarok (42%) and Final Fantasy XVI (32%).
But but...exclusives don't matter as much as we think they do. How could this possibly be?? :unsure:

Edit: Apparently, some need more than a sample size as proof of the PS5's dominance. Global sales figures by year's end should cover that lol.

The study was done after Sep 23rd, after the Bathesda sale and the pre orders for both next gen platforms being live. 63% of the people didn't know about the sale, meaning the remaining 37% .. I guess those are the entirety of people who made the choice to pre order Xboxes in the survey lol

Unless the issue is a sample size, it's called a 'sample' size for a reason 🤷‍♂️

But but...exclusives don't matter as much as we think they do. How could this possibly be?? :unsure:
Exclusives are the biggest thing that matter, anyone who says otherwise is just deluding themselves. Exclusives are what make people buy a console even though they already own a gaming PC which would theoretically play all multi-platform games better than consoles.

Im surprised at the percentage of people seeing the point in buying an Xbox since Xbox doesn't have any exclusive 🤷‍♂️

i'm sure if a similar poll is done in Europe (or Japan lol) the percentage's gonna be much lower. US has historically been the Xboxes (only) strong market.

Exclusives are not even open to debate (unless you don't have them lol). Sony and Nintendo haven't been leading the industry for years for nothing. Numbers do the talking. All this doesn't mean that people only play exclusives on Sony and Nintendo systems or that there isn't a multiplatform console market (this shouldn't require spelling out whenever one talks about exclusives).

Btw, some people would be buying a Switch as well during the holiday season (I already did :p), though it might not be a significant percentage. As for PS5, if PS4 data is anything to go by, obviously PS5 will sell the most. Don't need a survey for that. Rest we'll see the actual numbers by the year-end.

WD have revealed their first PS5 compatible SSD in their latest presser.

The one's on the right which say compatible with PS and Xbox are poratble drives.



WD Black’s NVMe series is pretty good and now with RGB? Too bad won’t be visible at all inside a PS5, and ofcourse no software as well to customize it lol.

Does that mean we can use the portable SSDs with the PS5 too or by "Works with Playstation" they are referring to PS4 ?

It 'works' on playstation as in it will plug and play just fine. On PS5's you will only be able to use it for BC games and cold storage of PS5 games.

To play native PS5 games you'll need to use the internal or the specialized PS5 compatible SSD on the left of the chart.

    Even during hot humid days in Lahore, the highest temp in my room was 37 or something in my room and that was without any ventilation, room was closed for 2-3 days since I was outta town. Normally it would stay around 32-34. Firing up AC would of course cool down everything
