Release Date of Playstation 5
Sony has now officially confirmed that the PS5 is going to release “Holiday 2020”, i.e., between October and December 2020. As per a leak, the report has suggested that the release date is going to be 20th November 2020 but that’s yet to be confirmed. It’s in the right window, however, and it does leave time beforehand Christmas to get those orders in.
This is also going to put the PlayStation 5 in direct competition with Microsoft’s Xbox Series X (formerly Xbox Project Scarlett), which is releasing throughout the same period.
Specifications of Playstation 5
The upcoming CPU of PS5 is going to be very powerful processing power and it will come up with A variation of AMD’s third-generation Ryzen line, 8 cores of the new 7nm Zen 2 microarchitecture as well as 16 threads at 3.2Ghz as per to the current prediction. It is being highly expected that this Gaming hardware will come up with 24 GB GDDR6 RAM + 4GB DDR4 RAM for the operating system. Graphics are going to be driven by a custom version of Radeon’s Navi line. The PS5 is also going to be taking gaming Audio to the next level with 3D audio. This is also going to be built into its custom AMD chip.
Playstation 5 Price
In the meantime, Sony has not given any statement regarding how much its new console is going to cost, but as per new reports, the PS5’s price is going to be attractive to gamers. “I believe that we will be able to release it at an SRP [suggested retail price] that will be appealing to gamers in light of its advanced feature set,” said Mark Cerny, the lead architect of the PS4 who is at present working on its successor.
Sony hasn’t officially confirmed a PS5 price just yet, so we can’t say for sure what it’ll be. But at the same time, there have been rumors. A leak has suggested that the console is going to cost $499 in North America when it launches. Indeed this should be taken with a pinch of salt, but it might possibly be welcome news if the console did launch at this price as it’s merely $100 more than the launch price of the PS4 and PS4 Pro.
In addition to that, there’s also been a less believable rumor demanding the PS5 is going to cost up to £900 – but at the same time, Sony has already debunked that.
