Starting with the first question, how much do we pay to get that new gaming baby on its release day?
The answer is that we are yet unaware of the tech giant’s plan to launch its new console, although the recent buzzes have hinted towards late 2019 or early 2020.
The time frame is associated with the reports that Sony is working on to launch its own PlayStation events next year and will probably not attend the upcoming E3 2019.
It is a big wheel and has created a stir about what is being scheduled next year when it comes to big gaming news.
This news is followed by fresh reports that claim the PlayStation 5 release date price has been uncovered.
But the new rumors posted on Reddit indicates that the PS4 will be substituted by a new console that will cost approximately $500 to buy.
The tech giant is apparently working on to provide 60fps at 4K for their follow up to the PS4 Pro and PS4 console range.
It is noteworthy that none of these new reports came from Sony who has shared a little information on their next console range.
There have also been intimations that the PlayStation 5 will flaunt a mid-range GPU from AMD and an 8-Core Ryzen CPU.
This will help to future-proof the console for several years, though another refreshed mid-range consoles cannot be ruled out.
The PS4 Pro, as well as the Xbox One X, is popular among the gamers, and undoubtedly another upgrade might possibly be offered years into the next console cycle.
A 2020 release date would further provide Sony with an opportunity to launch its ultimate set of PS4 exclusives. This set of exclusives include Ghost of Tsushima, Media Molecule’s Dreams and The Last of Us 2.
Apparently, Square Enix is also working on a new set of games for the PS5. Square Enix employee’s LinkedIn page gives away this new information describing the game as a triple-A release.
Seen by Gematsu—a page that belongs to a 3D character designer employed by the Luminous Production. Luminous Production is owned by Square Enix.
Recently, Square Enix affirmed that Luminous Productions was developing a brand-new triple-A game, though it is the first time that it has mentioned for PS5.
There have been several speculations that were hinting towards the fact that PlayStation 5 will include a PS4 backwards compatibility.
Pointing towards such feature, Sony patents have been found, making fans keyed up over the thought that they will be able to play their much loved PS4 exclusives on the next-gen machine.
The patent was filed privately and contains attention-grabbing language with the title “Remastering by emulation”.
The patent language reads: “Each asset such as a texture called for by legacy software such as a legacy computer game software has a unique identifier associated with it.
“The unique identifier can be rendered by imposing a hash on the asset, and then the asset stored with its identifier in a data structure. An artist remasters the textures for presentation on a higher resolution display than envisioned in the original software and stores them back in the data structure with their identifiers.
“The original software is then played on the higher resolution display, with the asset (such as texture) calls being intercepted, identified, and the data structure entered to retrieve the remastered asset having a matching identifier.
“The remastered asset is then inserted on the fly into the game presentation.”
