PlayStation 5: Rumors and the first details

The current generation of consoles, obviously coming to the end of his era, and it means that the main platformoderzhateli in Sony and Microsoft face in the foreseeable future should please us with the announcement of new devices. About the American company's plans at the moment, little is known, but the Japanese have recently provided us with not a little food for thought. We have collected for you the most interesting all the currently available information on the upcoming Sony PlayStation console 5.

PlayStation 5: Rumors and the first details

I would like to start with the data received from the resource Techtastic. As the authors of the publication claim, Sony some time ago, has patented a special "electronic game of the cartridge." But do not think that we are returning to the past, because modern cartridges are much more comprehensive and successful Nintendo Switch says that on them it is possible to fit the modern game. By the way, if the cartridge will be put into production, it will not pose a danger to the environment, as is made of synthetic resin.

Another recent patent comes to Sony controllers. According to him, they can have a touch screen. So, it is quite possible that Sony wants to develop the successful experience of using DualShock 4, replacing the convenient touch-panel on a small informative display.

Again remembering Nintendo might think that Sony has decided to go on her way and to combine in a single unit home and portable console, but this approach is very risky. Firstly: creating a hybrid, the company may completely lose the home console market, "giving" him Microsoft. And secondly, it just does not fit with the words Director of Sony Interactive Entertainment John encoder which, responding to a question journalists about the successor Bloomberg portable PS Vita said the following:

"Instead of sharing portable and home consoles, we can think of the first as a tool to expand the gaming experience."

So ​​most likely, we are waiting for some kind of accessory for the PlayStation 5, or even a separate device, which has no relationship to the console, because gaming consoles - is not the only type of equipment manufactured by Sony. In addition, even before the announcement of the current generation of consoles, there were many rumors that platformoderzhateli abandon physical media, which, as we know, did not happen.

In addition, recently the network also allegedly leaked photos of the prototype PlayStation 5. According to the portal, which is acquired in the order prototype, he has worked only in debug mode, and determined by the controller.

In fact, almost immediately followed by a disclaimer and it was announced that this is fake. Someone suggested that in the photo presented the so-called Dev Kit, then there is a version for developers, but it was not confirmed. In addition, "devkity" with few exceptions have little in common in appearance with the upcoming consoles. At least, the first version of that broadcast companies long before the announcement. By the way, earlier this year the director of UbiSoft Yves Gilma let slip that they are already working in the company with "the next console from Sony" and she "just gorgeous."

As for the specifications, one of the insiders with the forum Reddit, which has previously published reliable information about Sony's plans, he said that the "heart" PlayStation 5 to become an eight-modified processor Ryzen processor from the company AMD, as well as specially designed for the needs of the console Navi graphics chip. This will allow the bailiff to run the game in the "fair" 4K at 60 frames per second. In addition, together with the PlayStation 5 to go out and helmet PlayStation VR of the second generation. The cost of the new console is not yet known, but based on the previous years, we can expect that its price will not rise above $ 500. Finally one of the most interesting news: Sony recently canceled its annual event PlayStation Experience, and said it will not participate in the E3 2019. For the first time in 24 years! Thus PlayStation Experience 2019 will take place according to plan, which means that the Sony, likely to go the Apple route and organizing a separate event for the presentation of his new device. If all goes as planned, the announcement of PS 5 to be held in mid to late 2019, and sales will begin in 2020. Unless, of course, the Sony not beat all, as it has been with the announcement of PlayStation 4.
