Rumors suggest that Sony could launch the most powerful gaming console, dubbed the PlayStation 5, in 2018 to take on Microsoft Xbox One X, formerly known as the Xbox Project Scorpio.
Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One X at E3, calling it the most powerful gaming console in the market, with 6TF of processing power. The console will arrive in November and many gaming lovers believe Sony will release the PlayStation 5 in 2018.
We were expecting Sony to break its silence at this year E3. But it did not happen.
In this article, we’ll talk about rumors swirling about the PlayStation 5. Please keep in mind that Sony has yet to make an announcement regarding the rumored PS5.
PlayStation 5 Rumors, News, Features
The PlayStation 5 will be more powerful than the Xbox One X.
Per Macquarie Research analyst Damian Thong, the PS 5 will beat the Xbox One X with more than 10 teraflops of GPU. Thong is a famous analyst who covers Sony. He successfully predicted the release of both the PS4 slim and the PS4 Pro.
Like the Xbox One X Scorpio, the PlayStation 5 will run games and videos in the 4K resolution.
Rumors suggest that Sony is preparing two models of the PlayStation 5.
The console is expected to support a virtual reality headset and will come along with the virtual reality headset.
PlayStation 5 Price and Release Date
Thong predicted that the PS5 will arrive in the second half of 2018.
However, based on the history of the Sony’s console launches, we believe that the console won’t arrive until 2019. Sony might still want to enjoy the success of the PS4 and PS4 Pro. When asked about the PS5, Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony’s Worldwide Studios, said that he thought the PS5 was a question of “if” rather than “when.” The Japan-based electronics giant seems not interested in a smartphone phone-style “upgrade every year” approach.
Meanwhile, rumors suggest that the PS5 will be offered at $500, the same price as the Xbox One X.
