Could the PS5 come out in 2018? According to a series of new rumors, Sony could indeed decide to release the PlayStation 5 on the market this year.
The creation of the console is already well underway the latest news is developers are already designing video games for the PS5. Check out the latest rumors about the PlayStation 5, Sony’s next console.
PS5 will use AMD’s Navi as its base architecture while it will utilize a Zen CPU from the same company.
Sony has already provided developers with development kits for the PlayStation. With these kits, developers of video game studios can already look into the development of future video games that will be offered on the PS5. As Gran Turismo Sports game designer Kazunori Yamauchi reports, these PS5 games should be able to shoot in 8K. “I think that turning it into 8K would not be a problem,” he said last year.
The kits for developers have already been distributed by Sony en masse to many video game studios. Developers have been working on PS5 games for almost two months.
For now, we still have very little information about the PlayStation 5. According to the CEO of Sony, the Japanese manufacturer does not give up the idea of a physical console in favor of a console in the cloud. The only certainty is the PlayStation 5 will include virtual reality. The PS4 uses an AMD Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) that is built upon the x86-64 architecture. If Sony uses this architecture in the PS5 (which is likely), there’s a decent chance that the machine will offer backward compatibility with the PS4.
The Xbox One X currently retails for £450 or so. Knowing this, Sony will probably aim for a similar price point if it hopes for its next console to remain competitive.
