Sony has finally unveiled the specs to the upcoming PlayStation 5 Console (PS5). From the looks of it, the PS5 will be producing a lot more power than the previous generation with the PS4.

On top of these upgrades, Son will be also revamping their controllers to provide haptic feedback instead of the usual rumble technology that’s long been used.

Also the point of having an SSD for storage will speed up loading times tremendously.

Backwards compatibility

When the PS5 launches, the console will be able to support backwards compatibility allowing you to play the most popular PS4 games so customers don’t need to worry about that portion.


When it comes to the PS VR side, Sony will continue to support the technology and we’ll eventually see an upgraded headset in the near future.

The PS5 is looking more and more like a PC than the consoles we used to know in previous generations. We can see that they are including strong components for users to have access to better graphics, loading times, and a more immersive experience.

While not as powerful, the architecture looks to be able to support more graphic intensive VR experiences than the previous generation model in the PS4 or the PS4 Pro.

Release date

Currently, Sony looks to release the PS5 units some time during the holiday season. But with the Corona Virus at hand, the timeline can definitely be pushed back depending on the state of our economy.
