Sony Finally Unveils The PS5!
Sony finally released a information about the upcoming PS5 games at a lengthy Live Stream show over Youtube.com
After the game releases, here comes and the big news...how the PS5 looks like!
Sony on Friday unveiled more than two dozen titles for its upcoming PlayStation 5 console, including a sequel to its hit “Spider-Man” title and the latest “Gran Turismo” racer, as it builds anticipation ahead of the planned year-end launch.
As rival Microsoft prepares the launch of its next generation Xbox Series X console for this year’s holiday season, the presentation gave a first glimpse of how games will look when played on Sony’s device.
At PS5’s launch, Sony will offer two options: a PlayStation5 console with an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive and a PlayStation5 Digital Edition without a disc drive. Sony said that the PS5 gameplay experience will be the same. While there are some slight differences in the look of each model, for the overall design, Sony wanted to deliver a console that’s bold, stunning, and unlike any previous generation of PlayStation.
The new PlayStation 5 immediately stands out with its white-black design, as well for the fact that Sony is seemingly presenting the new console in a primarily vertical standing position.
The console is defined by an enveloping white rounded body that envelops a central glossy black middle section like some sort of cape. The black middle section at the top emits a blue light, illuminating the white side panels as well as the ventilation grills.
Alongside the two new PS5 variants, Sony also announced several new accessories for the console: The new DualSense controller which we’ve known for some time now, a new DualSense charging station which charges up to two controllers at a time, a stereoscopic HD camera, a media remote, and a new headset dubbed the PULSE 3D Wireless Headset.
3D audio is meant to be a big part of the new PlayStation 5 experience thanks to the console’s new audio hardware capabilities.
The Sony PlayStation 5 is powered by a custom AMD SoC employing 8 Zen 2 cores up to 3.5GHz, a new customized RDNA 2-based GPU with 36 CUs and up to 2.23GHz frequency, and a new ultra-fast SSD and storage architecture.
“You’ve seen games that can only be enjoyed with the full range of PlayStation 5’s features and power,” Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan said during the presentation, which attracted more than 2 million views of its feeds on YouTube and Twitch.
Upcoming titles include “Spider-Man: Miles Morales” from in-house studio Insomniac Games, a sequel to the best-selling title on the aging PlayStation 4, and “Project Athia” from Final Fantasy developer Square Enix Holdings. Grand Theft Auto V started the party, revealing an expanded and enhanced edition due to hit PS5 in 2021.
There was no indication of the hardware’s pricing. Sony said it would offer two version of the device, one without a disc drive as gamers shift to higher-margin digital downloads.
PlayStation Studios announced nine titles. It kicked off with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Insomniac also revealed Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, a galaxy-hopping new PS5 adventure in the fan-favorite Insomniac series.
Guerilla gave a first look at Horizon Forbidden West for PlayStation 5, a new adventure set in a distant land ravaged by massive storms. And Polyphony Digital dropped by to unveil Gran Turismo 7 as The Real Driving Simulator prepares for a new generation of PlayStation hardware.
