Well this is a surprise. In an exclusive interview with lead architect Mark Cerny. Wired has revealed the first PS5 details. 

 

 

 

https://www.wired.com/story/exclusive-sony-next-gen-console/ 

 

 

 

The PS5 has been in the works for 4 years (2015)  

 

Zen 2 Confirmed (big deal, Zen+ was previously assumed to be what was used in PS5).  

 

Navi confirmed (not as big deal, since we pretty much knew this before).  

 

Ray Tracing Support Confirmed (To what degree is unknown, but holy crap!)  

 

3D Audio info - Some solution for TV speakers, will support native 3D audio set ups aside from their Gold Headphones such as external speakers, unlike PS4.  

 

Current PSVR headset is compatible with PS5.  

 

SSD Confirmed! (If Mark Cerny wasn’t the one saying these things, I wouldn’t believe him).  

 

SSD used standard faster than what’s currently available for PC (PCIe 4.0?).  

 

Spider-Man is running on a PS5 Devkit  

 

8K Support (unlikely to be used much, like how base PS4 technically supports 4K)  

 

Death Stranding confirmed to launch on PS4, possibly PS5.  

 

No New news on cloud gaming  

 

Backwards Compatible with PS4  

 

Physical Media confirmed

Sadly, I know I'll be one of the first in line to part with my cash. It's just how I am with new gadgets :)

 

Just shut up and take my money! 

 

I consider the $1000 I spent on my PS4 some of the best money I spent on gaming. The 1TB SSD was an excellent investment though for some reason I am only getting 780 Usable and my PS4 is always complaining about space! I am seriously considering a 2TB SSD.

 

I'd put a 1TB SSD in my Xbox One X if it wasn't so freaking hard to do!

I don't suppose it's going to be known yet, but I hope the backwards compatibility will include peripherals as well as games.  Not that keen on reinvesting in a new steering wheel and pedals kit if I upgrade.

If they are USB I'd suspect they are compatible, but it will depend largely on what new features are announced that aren't compatible. You may still be able to use your old gear but not make use of new features.

I have been sitting on my PS3 for a while now.

 

If the PS5 supports playing all regions for bluray and dvds, I would consider it.

I'm finding that many modern games are missing the gameplay element.   

 

I bought the latest god of war game, off the back of amazing reviews.  But, I only got through a couple of levels before I got so bored. Maybe I should have persevered, but it was a grind. 

 

My favourite game is grand theft auto, and I would buy the next playstation just for gta 6. 

 

I also enjoy the battlefield series of games, and general multiplayer where I can fight against my kids haha. Used to love battlefield 1942, because you could run the server yourself and setup lan games. 

 

And, in fact, googling this ...

Woohoo!!  Roll on November 2020!  It might be the only game I buy for the PS5!

Re GOW the game didn't really get interesting till around 5-8 hours in. I still haven't finished it as new games keep coming out and I like the new shiney things, but it's on my list.

If its got a zen2 chip with 1tb ssd at pcie speeds along with navi hbm then i wouldnt be surprised if the standard model is $800 or higher on release.

Re: God of War, it becomes non-linear once you hit the lake. You really need to figure out the gear system if you want to do side-missions or later main missions. The game opens up when you start to get different pieces for builds depending on your preferred weapon/style of combat

At that point id question whether or not it would be worth getting a ps5 at launch instead of upgrading my PC to a RTX card or something. If its $800 a launch I think id wait, upgrade my PC and play last of us 2 and death stranding on PS4.

Most Blu-rays are region free these days, but the PS4 will still respect the region coding if present.

Well, I don't really doubt that would be true, but I own Blu-rays I have purchased from all over the world, I have yet to find a single disc that won't play in my BR. 

 

I wonder if an update removed the region locks perhaps?

This would be the good model, either ps5 ‘pro’ or whatever they call it. There will definitely be a base model for maybe $500-600 going down to $400 over time

It is a significant upgrade over the ps4 and xbone x. The jaguars cpu and hdd really held back this gen in performance quality (note; not image quality).

We might finally get true 1080p 60fps or higher as a minimum now. $800nzd for that is a drop in the bucket for what you get. I’d actually expect it to be closer to $1000 honestly
