Sony’s next-generation console referred to as the next PlayStation or PS5, does not have a specific release date and a few days back, not much was known about it. Although some information did pop up every now and then, but nothing substantial. A few rumors regarding it having backward compatibilities also surfaced but nothing was officially confirmed. However, all that seems to have been changed following Sony’s corporate strategy presentation. Some of the most interesting and surprising details have been released that will perhaps give you a better understanding of Sony’s future PS5 console. Along with that an official video comparison of the performance of PS4 Pro against next-gen PlayStation 5 has also been shown.

Starting off, it has been confirmed yet again that the future PS5 console will have backward compatibility. Furthermore, since its architecture is similar to that of PS4, it will able to run games from the previous generation console. So that is a relief for a lot of fans. In the presentation, the company said,

We will leverage backwards compatibility to transition our community to next-gen faster and more seamlessly than ever before,”

That said, check out the video comparison of PS4 Pro against next-gen PlayStation 5 in the Tweet below.

Now although it may be the case that the in terms of architecture the upcoming console does have similarities with the PS4 but it is to also be noted that it will be powered by AMD with an all-new CPU and GPU. PS5 will be using a third-gen AMD Ryzen CPU with eight cores and a custom built AMD’s Radeon Navi family GPU. Not only will this enable the console to support advanced rendering technique called ray tracing but will also be able to provide immersive 3D audio.

As you can see in the video comparison that the future PS5 console is way faster in speed compared to its predecessor and it is not even in its complete form. It is currently in development and the devs have assured the fans that it will still take at least 2 more years before it actually rolls out.

This much information may all be soothing to the ears of the PlayStation fans but we certainly not eliminate the threat Sony might face with its old intimate companion, Microsoft. Which is currently working on its future Xbox console. Which too is powered by AMD. Be that as it may, the new competitor for both of them is Google Stadia. For which it seems like Sony is already preparing as recently they filed a patent for a game streaming service similar to that of Stadia.

Only time will tell how it all pans out for Sony because the advancement is reaching a whole new level, especially after Stadia.

What are your thoughts? Let us known in the comments below.
