First PlayStation 5 Details Emerge


Wired has an article online with a few hints about Sony's upcoming PlayStation 5 console, including word that it will be backwards compatible with PS4 titles.

Quote:
Cerny isn’t ready to chat about services or other features, let alone games and price, and neither is anyone at Sony. Nor will you hear much about the console at E3 in June—for the first time, Sony won’t be holding a keynote at the annual games show. But a few more things come out during the course of our conversation. For example, the next-gen console will still accept physical media; it won’t be a download-only machine. Because it’s based in part on the PS4’s architecture, it will also be backward-compatible with games for that console.
Wired.

Word is also that the SSD inside the PlayStation 5 is faster than any SSD available for PC's and that the system will support 8K graphics.

I have to love the dig at Microsoft again, while MS is pushing a new Xbox that has no physical disc, Sony again confirms that the PS5 will support physical media.

If it features nvme ssd that would be a HUGE upgrade, but man that is expensive storage.

I'm pretty excited, I'm still hoping for PS1-PS3 backwards compatibility as well. Either way, day 1 purchase for me. I'll actually have to buy a few for the house for coop games. I'm wondering if you buy a copy of say "TLOU2" for PS4 if the "PS5" version will be free, or if its the same game with more textures, etc. I was a little frustrated when I bought Gran Theft Auto V for PS3 and then they wanted me to pay full price for the PS4 version.

Backwards Compatibility is going to become increasingly important as new generation graphic upgrades become less substantial between generations.

If a PS5 means that the new baseline for graphics is something like Red Dead Redemption 2 (example of the pinnacle of current-gen), then it isn't enough of a jump to warrant the elimination of PS4 titles from PS5 play.

I do not envy development studios having to deal with the cost of delivering on assets at that quality level.

MS is pushing BOTH a disc-less Xbox AND an Xbox that does have a disc, to be clear - so I'm not sure that's really a dig. I hope that this time Sony's drive is UHD.

I love my PSVR so I'm stoked about this. I wish mine had the HDR pass through though.

Awesome, too bad for spending a large amount of money again, but change is imperative.

Mostly happy as it would bring PSVR upgrade (so the rumors say), and this is where the PS is most lacking in my eyes, current gen graphics on ps4 are good enough for me.

Seeing as I just bought two 4k tv's, I'm looking forward to buying a console that can push at 4k with ease.

Yes, and it does it fairly well, but PC versions look significantly better in 4k. I want to see next gen 4k.

Without backwards compatibly there's no way I would buy another PlayStation.

Game publishers must be bumming they will have to make new games instead of releasing re-worked old games. Publishers call them 'classics', I call them old.

Sure, maybe the xbonex can do 4k, but it ain't doing it at 120fps.

That's what I want.

Meh unless Sony pumps out some new games with it I am not getting on board anytime soon. By new games I mean new IPs and maybe dare I dream new genre's or atleast sub genres. Something the old current consoles just couldn't do. Faster loads and pretty graphics are cool but it takes alittle more than that to get my dick hard so to speak.

Ditto whatever Mirosoft is planning.
