The next-generation console from Sony i.e. PS5 is coming out soon. We know about the design which is going to be an upgraded one this time and the console is going to have numbers of interesting features which are quite impressive. We are going to discuss all of them here. Some exclusive and most anticipated PS% games are coming to the platform including Horizon Forbidden West and Gran Turismo 7. Of course, don’t confuse that we know everything about the upcoming PS5 as we don’t. But, we do have some official complete understanding of some features and parts of PS5.
We are going to let you know everything we know about it as far. So what are we waiting for? Let’s take a quick look at all of them.
PS5: When is it going to be released?
We don’t have much information about the release date of PS5. So we are here with the limited information about this part.
Sony confirmed that the PlayStation 5 is going to be released in the Holiday 2020 window. So that means it is likely to be released somewhere in between October and December 2020. That would put it in the direct competition with the Xbox Series X, which is also being released in the same window.
Rumours have suggested that the release date will be 20th November 2020 but that is just a rumour, nothing officially confirmed. But, as per the traditions and on-going things the timing seems right and November could be the launch month.
PS5: What will be the price?
The price has not been confirmed by Sony yet. But some predictions are giving us hints that the price would be somewhere around $499. But, this is only a guess and a prediction but if this gets true then it will be definitely welcomed as it’s only $100 more than the launch price of the PS4 and PS4 Pro.
That’s the price considered to be of the standard version of PS5. As we know through the revelations done by Sony at its June 11 event that PS5 consoles are going to have two versions i.e. the standard PS5 and the PS5 Digital Edition. For now, Sony has not decided the price of anyone of them. But as the generational competition has increased between the Microsoft’s own Xbox Series X and Sony’ PS5 we might see many twists and turns.
PS5: What about the design and graphics?
Sony gave an outstanding performance when it came to the revelation of the console it was icing on the PS5 games reveal event. Both the PlayStation 5 consoles will launch a standard edition with a 4K Blu-ray disc drive, and a slimmer, disc-free PS5 Digital Edition. There is USB-C charging for their controllers, a wireless headset and media remote.
