Imagine our shock here at Consolevania Towers when the bold Mark Cerny unleashed all sorts of info about PlayStation 5 in an interview with WIRED. We were like that - “What? It’s a Tuesday!”
So here’s what we know. PlayStation 5 will:
Need to be plugged into a telly.
Have new hardware in it, instead of just all the same bits.
Have an eight-core Ryzen or something in its graphics thing.
Have a GPU based on an AMD, or an AMD based on a GPU, that means it can trace rays.
Be able to attach to that 8K telly you don’t own.
Possess 3d sound, instead of just the normal flat sound that falls into your ears vertically.
Come fitted with an SSD (Some Sorta Drive) instead of a hard drive, so that your boring open-world game can load in all its mindless collectables more easily.
Be able to still do a PSVR into it, so that you can do the PSVR thing where your eyes are another being’s eyes in a nightmarish hellscape.
Come out in the shops in the future, where you might not even be alive.
Be 500 quid, probably.
