Sony's long-awaited new generation console PlayStation 5 is coming soon. By now, we learned many things about the new console. It's quite clear that the console itself will be like a supercomputer in all matters. PS5 will be the fastest console and will have the highest performance above all the consoles of Sony. In this article, you will be reading "All About PS5", enjoy it.

PlayStation 5 Design

There were lots of speculations about the design of PS5, but we have seen it for the first time in the "Future of Gaming" event of Sony. It was officially revealed on June 11, 2020. We can see there are 2 different versions of PS5; a standard edition with a 4K Blu-ray disc drive and a slimmer version, PS5 Digital Edition.

Both of these designs have USB-C to charge their Dualsenses and accessories like an HD camera, PS5 wireless headset, and media remote. Media remote is a brand new accessory in the console world.

PlayStation consoles had always been flat. They had strict borders and after PlayStation 2, they were all black. With PS5, Sony got rid of the classic design and created something new and different. Its black and white colours, curves, and blue lightning carried PS5 into somewhere else.

We didn't expect to see The PS5 Digital Edition because it is entirely a new concept of console gaming. Since digital downloads have been getting more popular, it's actually something innovative. Lots of people are buying their games online from PS Store or use codes. It's obvious that The PS5 Digital Edition will probably be cheaper than the standard one. But Sony also didn't forget the hard copy collectors.

PlayStation 5 System Features / Technical Spesifications

PlayStation 5 will be one of the most powerful consoles of the game industry. Even before its design, we knew about its specs. The new console will be more developer-friendly for developers to be comfortable about games.

Playstation 5 Controller DualSense

PlayStation controllers have always changed with the new consoles. But for PS5, Sony changed the entire DualShock definition by changing the name into DualSense. So, the new controller will not be mentioned as DualShock5. Like system specs, we knew about the DualSense in advance.

DualSense matches with the new design of PS5 in terms of their colours and lines. We always had colours on the buttons of DualShock controllers. This one doesn't have them.

DualSense has haptic feedback for L2 and R2 buttons which makes players feel the tension of their actions when they are drawing a bow to shoot an arrow. This feature also will let developers program even more realistic gameplay.

DualSense also has a microphone in it. On DualShock4, we had a new "Share" button. This new DualSense has a "Create" button but its purpose isn't different from the old share button. It will still continue to share your gameplay with the world.

Playstation 5 Games

Of course, there are some leaks saying that it will come out on November 20, but the leaks are not confirmed.

There are lots of rumours about the price tag of PlayStation 5. But Sony didn't make any explanations about the price of the new-gen console. We expect it to be at 420 pounds. In the latest PS5 predictions sales from SBD’s estimate is on the optimistic side. The Nasdaq is already above its February 2020 level and the Dow is climbing. Barring further the aforementioned winter resurgence of COVID-19, expect big sales from the PS5.
