The Sony Playstation 5 will be a remarkable improvement to its current console, but the company isn’t planning to scrap the PS4 anytime soon. Here’s what you can expect.
Sony has generously revealed the capabilities of its next-generation console to keep gamers and Sony fans excited. Key aspects you can look forward to on the upcoming Sony Playstation 5 are the ability to support 8K graphics, 3D audio, SSD storage, and backwards compatibility with PS4 games. The SSD storage – compared to the current hard drive format – will serve to drastically improve the load time speed, making it nearly ten times faster than the PS4 Pro, as demonstrated in the meeting. Needless to say, the future of gaming on Sony consoles looks exciting. Trust that the Sony Playstation 5 will be able to handle heavier graphics and dynamic maps for more seamless gameplay.
Even though the PS4 will be phased out eventually, the console still has an important role to play for at least another three years as it will provide a community of gamers that will move on to the next-gen console. Plus, Sony also plans to continue adding exclusive games to the PS4 roster for now.
We still have quite a long way to go before Sony announces the pricing, release date and games that will be available on the PS5. What we do know is that the PS5 will still support discs. However, given the surprising partnership with Microsoft to develop cloud solutions, expect the PS5 to start the move towards cloud gaming – where all forms of gaming activities will be done through streaming. Which means there will no longer be a need for hardware, discs, installations and the like. The Sony Playstation 5 does look promising so far but for now, the waiting game continues.
