The PlayStation 5: What do we know so far?
PlayStation 5


December 2020 is what PlayStation gamers around the world are waiting for – the scheduled release of the PlayStation 5, the next installment in Sony’s prestigious line of premium gaming consoles.

At this stage the details are a bit hazy, but I feel there is already enough to get excited about: 8k visuals, backward compatibility, a new controller – see what I mean?

Your wallet can breathe easy. The PS5 will be backward compatible, meaning all your PlayStation 4 games will work on the PlayStation 5. Classics like GTA V, God of War and Red Dead Redemption 2 can join you on your journey to the next level of console gaming.

The console design concept from LetsGoDigital looks completely different from anything PlayStation fans are used to and resembles something out of a 1980s sci-fi film. I’m sure the shape has some very intentional engineering benefits, but one can’t help but notice it resembles a V, the Roman numeral for 5. Besides this apparent coincidence, it’s what’s below the hood that allows Sony to bring 8k gaming to its latest console, and boy are we excited!

The new PS5 controller is set to include haptic feedback, basically a way for the controller to better communicate with the visuals on the screen. This coupled with adaptive triggers brings a completely different element to the gaming experience – things like pulling a bow string, driving on dirt and moving on ice are said to feel completely unique.

What about the PlayStation 5 Pro? Too soon, okay, I’ll save that for the next write up.

While we’re a year away from getting our hands on the PlayStation 5, there is still lots to look forward to in the immediate future for PlayStation gamers: FIFA 20, Borderlands 3 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare are just a few of the latest titles available on bidorbuy. And with over 70 000 other games, we think there’s more than enough to keep you busy!
