PlayStation 5 Console Described As The ‘Most Exciting Hardware In 20 Years’

Sony PlayStation has been rather tight-lipped about its upcoming Playstation 5 console, but new details are set to emerge today.

Since the console was officially announced last year, many fans have been speculating over the PlayStation 5’s specs. Although Sony has shared some details about the console, most of it has kept under wraps.

However, Kotaku’s Jason Schreier has revealed on Twitter that the new console is set to feature some big upgrades. Schreier shared a tweet from software programmer Billy Khan who claimed the new console is “awesome”.

Responding to Khan, Schreier explained that he had heard similar sentiments from other industry-insiders. He wrote: “I don’t know how many teraflops the PS5 has, but this is the sentiment I’ve heard from several technical-minded folks.

“One told me it was ‘the most exciting hardware in 20 years.’ Will be fascinating to see how it stacks up to the impressive Xbox Series X specs.”

The comments have already sparked excitement among the PlayStation community, but the comments should be taken lightly until the PS5’s specs have been officially confirmed by Sony PlayStation themselves.

However, it’s important to note that Khan reportedly had access to a PS5 developer kit, suggesting they’re familiar with the upcoming console. Schreier, meanwhile, is considered one of the most trustworthy industry-insiders.

The PlayStation Event

Just days after Microsoft unveiled the full specs for its Xbox Series X console, PlayStation announced that it will be hosting an online digital event and share more information about the event.

The event was announced on Twitter by the official PlayStation UK Twitter account. The tweet revealed that the upcoming console’s lead system architect Mark Cerny will be revealing information about the console.

PlayStation UK’s tweet reads: “Tomorrow at 4pm GMT, PS5 lead system architect Mark Cerny provides a deep dive into PS5’s system architect and how it will shape the future of games.”

It’s unclear just how much information will be revealed during the event but it’s likely that the reveal will only focus on tech specs and potentially some new features.

According to the PlayStation Japan Twitter account, the video was originally planned to premiere at the Game Developer but was pushed back when the conference was cancelled due to coronavirus concerns.

So far, we know that the new console will be released this holiday season, will be backwards compatible with the PS4, and it will be compatible with 8K televisions. Last year, a report from Wired revealed that the console will feature an integrated Ultra HD Blu-ray player. It’s also been revealed that users will be able to manage how they install games, being allowed to either install only single-player campaigns or multiplayer services.

There has been lots of speculation and patent leaks suggesting that the console may include removable SSD drives. Other leaks have suggested that the PS5 will feature an AMD Zen 2 CPU with 18 GB of RAM and a 500 GB SSD.

However, we’ll have to wait until later tonight to find out more information. Stay tuned for updates.
