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.

Hi
Is there a page or a list of ALL the games that are available on the PS5? I know there is not much of it, but I would need such a list / page very much, maybe there is PoE. PoE is one of my favourite games on PS and maybe there will be a chance to convert my hero to Path of Exile 2 on Playstation. Now I'm using PS4 and I'm happy with that
Lists are very useful if you want to know more about the people who play and trade games. It may not be the easiest thing to do, but it is certainly rewarding. Spring is coming, maybe we will return to our activities soon, but so far we are playing.
I am delighted to be able to play Path of Exile, but what should I do with my money and currency?

Make sure you've plugged in directly into the wall, using the supplied HDMI cable.
Are you using LAN cable or WiFi? For some users if the cable is too long it'll keep disconnecting.
I am using the supplied HDMI cable & I am connected to WiFi.

the screen going off looks like a lose hdmi connector ?
and the console just flat out turning off in the middle of game play sounds bad, maybe your power outlet where you have it is faulty, or if you are running it through an extension or a stabilizer or anything external .. remove that and connect it directly.
The turning off in the middle of game was a bit suspect. As soon as I pushed the PS button on the controller it took me back to the game instead of having to go through the entire restart process. I was too panicked to observe what actually happened there.

My power outlet is fine. My TV is also connected to the same board. I am not using an extension or any other external source.

Hi all,

Don't know where to post this so posting here. I am not new to PG but have been inactive for almost ever.

I purchased a PS5 about a week ago. The console is quite amazing. However, I have come across some issues, at least three of them, in the past few days.
  1. The screen goes black while playing games (this has happened a few times)
  2. The console turns itself off suddenly, more specifically when I turn it on. Though once it did so while I was in the process of playing Demons Souls (the switching off has happened a couple of times, at least).
  3. Network/Internet disconnects on its own (this has happened once, so far).

For now I have turned off the Rest Mode. Perhaps that's the culprit?
Hello Ahmed.

1. This can happen due to hdmi handshaking issues with some TVs. I'd recommend hooking the PS5 up with another TV and seeing if the issue persists.
2. When you say "turn it on", do you mean from Rest mode? Rest mode related shutdowns are a common issue with the console. You ought to disable it altogether (which you already have), and re-enable it after a couple of firmware updates.
3. Unfortunately, this is also a known issue. Did it happen while you were downloading something? The PS5's wifi started acting up for some people after the December firmware update. Upgrading your modem/router may help, preferably to one that supports wifi-6. If it doesn't happen often or if it doesn't affect online multiplayer latency, it's not worth bothering with.

1. The display turning off and on issue is suspected to be an HDMI handshake issue.

2. No, I meant turning it on from being off for a while.

3. WiFi got disconnected while I was downloading Resident Evil Village Demo.

Oregon-based Sony Bend, best known for the 2019 open-world action game Days Gone, tried unsuccessfully to pitch a sequel that year, according to people familiar with the proposal. Although the first game had been profitable, its development had been lengthy and critical reception was mixed, so a Days Gone 2 wasn’t seen as a viable option.

"The problem with that model is it's just not sustainable," said Layden. He explained that current generation development costs reach between $80 million and $150 million (excluding marketing costs) for AAA games, with the work taking up to five years to complete. Furthermore, AAA budgets have historically doubled each generation, meaning that PS5 development budgets could hit $300 million.

"I don't think that, in the next generation, you can take those numbers and multiply them by two and think that you can grow," he added. "I think the industry as a whole needs to sit back and go, 'Alright, what are we building? What's the audience expectation? What is the best way to get our story across, and say what we need to say?'
He's absolutely right. The current AAA model isn't sustainable. Games can be AAA and not have massive budgets, and still do really well. Case in point: Nintendo.

I doubt Returnal has a huge budget.

If Sony is to follow Nintendo's model then how will studios live their dream of implementing physically accurate, ML-based muscle deformation? :unsure:

The Jimbo approach: by putting games on PC and maximizing software profitability. A questionable approach, given how a huge chunk of SIE's revenue comes from the 50M or so PS Plus subscriptions.

The Nintendo approach: by making smart decisions to minimize development costs and focus on the experience the game is aiming to deliver, and by respecting IPs and their association with the PlayStation brand.

Miles Morales did just fine without ML-based muscle deformation.

AAA games not on massive budgets already exist in the industry and have for a long time, with or without Shawn Layden's leadership.

All Sony "heavy hitter" exclusives were driven by single-player campaigns which have nothing to do with PS Plus subscriptions. No PS Plus revenue is lost by putting those games on PC.

Miles Morales was not on a AAA budget of a Santa Monica or a Naughty Dog game. Neither did it cost $60 or the new price of $70. It "did fine" and yet the studio is investing in technology that Nintendo studios aren't.

Nintendo's approach is developing and targeting their mobile specification hardware which lowers development costs significantly, that's the only "smart" part of the equation. The way people are emphasizing Nintendo's approach only paints Mark Cerny as the real villain 😂

Point is Sony's AAA games are developed on massive budgets, which are only getting bigger.

Not all heavy hitter Sony IPs, but TLOU, Uncharted, Ghost of Tsushima, and MLB all have multiplayer components (TLOU II multiplayer is a stand alone release, but it's part of the IP) and have much to do with PS Plus.

Insomniac is investing in technologies Nintendo isn't because Sony wants them to. Back when they were independent, they made a game like Song of the Deep. With Ratchet & Clank: A Rift Apart, they're leveraging faster I/O tech to bring about new possibilities in their game design, so I'm totally on board with that.

Nintendo's mobile spec hardware is more powerful than the PS3 and X360, yet, compared to their games, a majority of Nintendo's games are simpler in terms of geometric complexity and texture detail. It all comes down to priorities.
