PS5 Sony upcoming and much-anticipated gaming console finally has a face now. The company revealed a logo for the Sony PlayStation 5 at CES 2020. Sony had kept the upcoming gaming console under the wraps for quite a while now.
The logo reveal is the first visual confirmation for the PS5 although a look at the hardware was highly expected. Sony’s rival Microsoft took the wraps off its Xbox Series X at the Game Awards last month. Sony also confirmed the holiday 2020 release for PS5 which is also the same for the Xbox Series X.
SONY PLAYSTATION 5 (PS5) SPECIFICATIONS
In terms of specifications, Sony PS5 will support 3D audio sound and ultra HD Blu-ray graphics, haptics/adaptive triggers, and ultra-high SSD. The gaming console will also be capable of hardware-based ray tracing for life-like graphics. These details were already revealed for the PS5 last year.
PS5 will be powered by AMD’s third-generation Ryzen line octa-core CPU built on the 7nm Zen 2 process. The console will use custom GPU based on AMD’s Radeon Navi. PS5 will also have a custom unit for 3D audio which will produce immersive sound while gaming directly through TV speakers and virtual surround sound. Headphones will further elevate the audio experience on the PS5.
We will certainly hear more about the memory and clock speeds as we near the release date of the PS5. That being said, the PS5 is already quite an update with SSD storage and 8K support.
As far as pricing is concerned, there is little known so far. Sony PS5 architect Mark Cerny has said that the company wants the console to be accessible for everybody. Even if Sony were to tone down the PS5 prices, expect a hefty 400 Euro (approximately Rs 32,000) price tag for the PlayStation 5.
While I was hoping we’d see the PS5 on Monday, we might not have to wait much longer for the official announcement. Sony first debuted the PS4 in February at the company’s own event, so we might have something similar to look forward to in a month.
