Sony’s PlayStation 5 Console May Be a True 4K Beast
The PlayStation 5 is one of the most awaited pieces of gaming hardware of the present day. And one of the most prominent reasons behind this is Sony’s will to stick to the old norms of console upgrades, in spite of the recent trends that rival console makers are adopting. However, another ground for all the excitement surrounding the Playstation 5 console is that Sony has made it abundantly clear that they are taking things to a whole new level.
What to expect from the PlayStation 5 console
Rumors about the upcoming PS5 had started doing the rounds since way back. More precisely, rival Microsoft’s announcement of the Xbox Project Scorpio last year had inspired a lot of questions about what the Japanese gaming giant was planning to do with the future of their landmark hardware line up. However, Sony had maintained nothing but silence, except the few times officials opened up about the Xbox Scorpio’s promises to render gaming in native 4K.
However, the one thing that has since become clear is that Sony aims to make a real 4K beast out of the PlayStation 5 console. This fact has been further corroborated by inside sources who claim that the company is planning to build their next generation hardware around a new discrete GPU, much unlike what Microsoft is incorporating in the Xbox One X.
PlayStation 5 Release Date
The new PlayStation 5 console is definitely happening, and that fact has come from Sony’s US CEO Shawn Layden. Layden has even gone as far as to say that the next generation of PlayStation hardware is necessary for the company to do their bit in the future of the gaming industry. But coming to the question of the possible release date of the PS5, he has remarked that it will be a while before it hits the market.
Analysts say that 2019 appears to be a likely time for Sony to roll out the PlayStation 5 console, for the company is directing the new hardware towards the 4K market, which will become more lucrative by the time 2019 comes around. This also falls in line with certain sources associated with the console in the making, who say that there are no chances of it coming out before 2019.
