So there was a post about this in the PS4 thread, but this is absolutely massive news so it definitely needs its own thread! Mark Cerny has talked to WIRED about Sony's next gen machine, leading to some fascinating details and discussion points. https://www.wired.com/story/exclusive-sony-next-gen-console/ A few headlines: - Revolution not evolution. - Will have a solid state drive with bandwidth faster than any SSD in any current PC. - The SSD will transform how quickly data can be streamed and will improve load times massively from current titles. - The PS5 will support 8K. - Will also support current PSVR, a future version of which is heavily implied but not yet being revealed. - Supports ray tracing, which seems to be a big focus of new graphics and (intriguingly) audio. - Jump in audio quality will 'redefine what sound can do in a videogame'. Much bigger than the leap from PS3 to PS4, and is a focus of the machine. Hardware resources being thrown at audio. - Backwards compatible with PS4 software. - Not out this year. SSD bit: UPDATE 08/10/19. Even more details revealed in another WIRED exclusive here: https://www.wired.com/story/exclusive-playstation-5/ - Ray tracing hardware acceleration in GPU, not software based. - Controller has haptic feedback and ‘adaptive triggers‘ to enhance immersion way beyond rumble. - SSD could make load times similar to cartridge gaming. - Console officially called PlayStation 5 and will be released in Holiday 2020.
