Ps5 is coming! (What we know so far...)




Brace yourself squad…Sony is coming! What’s good fam! Frosty Phenix here! Ever since the announcement and breakdown of the PS5, information has swirled around the interwebs about the next generation of console wars! Sony has come strong with the details and its stance on remaining non-cloud reliant and even offering the ever coveted “backwards compatibility”. Let’s just collect all of that information below for ya! Enjoy!


Stats:

  • “Believed” to be Backwards Compatible with most of the existing 4000+ PS4 games

  • Sporting an 825 GB Storage Limit with no foreseeable upgrade options (Will be able to use external storage options though)

  • 4K UHD (Ultra High Definition) Blu-Ray Drive

  • Custom AMD (Advanced Micro Device) GPU (Graphics Processing Unit)

  • Fast SSD, believed to be faster than anything on the market right now (Solid State Drive for the non techy folks. It’s the NEW Standard for Hard Drives. Check them out). Computing Stats for the drive clock at 5.5 GB per second. Meaning for the time being, the SSD card you get with this system will be the BEST you get that currently exists (for now)

  • During the extended full reveal of the PlayStation 5’s technical specification, Lead Systems Architect Mark Cerny confirmed that the PS5 will be capable of pushing out 10.28 teraflops (teraflop is a unit of computing speed equal to one million million (1012) floating-point operations per second)

Price:

Set to release during the 2020 Holiday Season (if we have one), there is no SET Price at my writing this article but speculated to be around $500-$700 (I say close to $700 due to the improvements in comparison to its predecessor but then when units don’t sell as much then it will go down close to the $500 range)


PS5 DualSense Controller: Source speculating between $60 and $80


What are your thoughts, squad? Will you be getting a PS5 HOT off the press this holiday or will you wait? I say I’ll wait on this since my PS4 still has value but who knows...my mind might change come winter time. This has been Frosty Phenix and I’ll catch y’all in my next piece.
