Understanding the PlayStation 5 Reveal

We have exciting tech news about the Sony PlayStation. Sony has revealed several line-up games coming out in the fall of 2020.  The announcement was made on SONY’s Livestream coverage.  It was presented with developer commentaries on game titles and advantages of the new PlayStation 5 hardware.

Games

A few reveals over the weekend:

  • Racket & Clank: Rift Away
  • Gran Turismo 7
  • Horizon Forbidden West
  • Hitman 3
  • Stray
  • Grand Theft Auto 5

Just to name a few.

The console so far does look promising.  I’m happy so many Sony fans are as excited as me to see the new console in the fall.

Overall Thoughts:

I enjoy trailer cinematic action of Racket & Clank’s fast-paced format, a rush that blew me away. Even more exciting than R&C’s Going Commando, if possible. Second, Gran Turismo 7, a Sony title I dearly enjoyed back in my teen years. The realism of GT4 pulled me into a driving game before Forza Motorsport.  A title I’d consider starting the 9th Gen-Console, with a BANG!

Favorite PS5 Titles: Stray, HANDS DOWN!

Price
Now it leaves everyone speculating what prices we can expect for the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition.

I am just suspicious, hmm?

Hardware
Alien-like hardware gives a more modern look with today’s new Next-Gen Gaming of the 2020s. The slick-rounded body console is the look gamers are in awe of with:

  • vertical shape
  • terrestrial stand
  • add-in blue backlit aesthetics

Sony’s gains major street cred with its vertical, round-body design that wowed my sense of esthetics.

AMD-CPU architecture confirmed from many hardware sources. The hardware features:

  • custom AMD GPU capable of ray tracing
  • Support for 4k resolution displays with high frame rates.
  • New audio hardware for real-time 3D audio effects
  • backward compatibly supporting PS4 titles and VR
  • No original PlayStation backward support

Final Thoughts:

Enjoy it! I cried throughout the game reveals.

My idea is to wait it out. Many generations will start out great, then by the fall of 2021, I expect to see a price reduction. No urgency to jump the gun for the latest and greatest. That can be unnecessarily costly.

So don’t rush for the latest console.  A sale price will come for the console, it’s a good time buy then.
