The PS5 release date draws ever closer, with Sony’s next-generation PlayStation 5 console still set to release sometime in late 2020/’Holiday 2020′. It could be that the PS5 launch is actually staggered across regions, according to an eyebrow-raising note in the trailer for Black Ops: Cold War. However, we’ll just have to wait until we hear more about the official date and price of the PS5.
The big PS5 reveal event in June was seriously exciting, delivering us games galore, and our first look at the PS5 design, not to mention PS5 accessories. Since then, it’s been a rather steady drip of smaller, yet no-less juicy details. Sony’s PlayStation 5 is still on track to arrive sometime in that ‘Holiday 2020’ period, and we’re waiting rather anxiously to hear an exact release date.
The most important news about our new favourite console? Sony is offering two different versions, a standard model with an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive, and a digital model without a disc drive, meaning budget-minded shoppers will have a couple of options.
“With PlayStation 5, we are making a significant leap to deliver a truly new generation of transformative play experiences that will redefine expectations for what games can be,” said Jim Ryan, president, and CEO of SIE.
“Worlds will be richer and more beautiful, they’ll captivate your senses in ways you didn’t think possible, and you’ll be able to experience them much more seamlessly, with lightning-fast loading. Today’s showcase is just a glimpse of what’s to come in the next generation, and we want to thank our community for taking this journey to PS5’s launch with us.”
We already knew the PS5 specs, which gave us an idea of what to expect in the PS5 vs Xbox Series X war for your paycheck, and now we’ve seen a huge bunch of games running on PS5 tech. Not to mention that incredibly sexy real-time PS5 Unreal Engine 5 tech demo.
