the PlayStation 5, which will be released before the end of this year will be the biggest game console in history. To such conclusion the user of the website Reddit under the nickname GREB07.
Sony has revealed the design of the next generation consoles last week. PS5 is made in a universal form factor and looks pretty futuristic: at the top of the body spreads its “wings” and the bottom tapers. Produced new model will be in two versions: with optical drive, Blu-ray discs and 4K without (Digital Edition). In addition to PS5, the online presentations were presented new games, including several exclusives.
the Company did not provide measurements of the consoles, so GREB07 calculated its size at the official images and promo video, using “benchmark” as a standard size drive and USB ports. His idea was developed by other users, along the lines of the d-pad new DualSense (sizes of buttons, likely to coincide with the DualShock controller from PS4).
Enthusiasts have suggested that the width of the PS5 (here and below when the horizontal orientation of the console) will be from 38 to 40 inches. Then there will be new Sony largest one dimension wider than the PS3 and the 1st generation Xbox (about 32 cm), as well as future Xbox Series X (~30 cm). In the height of the housing PS5 will consist of 9-10 cm, without drive – less.
Previously, Sony has pledged to release a PS5 for the season of the Christmas holidays until the end of this year. Presumably, the release of consoles will take place on November 20.
PS5 will have a much more powerful stuffing with 8-core AMD Ryzen in charge, high-speed SSD-drive capacity of 825 GB, optical drive 4K UHD Blu-ray, as well as support the withdrawal of 8K graphics and 3D sound. On paper the console looks somewhat weaker Xbox Series X, which will also be released by the end of the year and will be compatible with old games.
According to unconfirmed reports, PS5 will cost $499,99. For comparison, the PS4 is sold for about $300, and the last and most expensive model PS4 Pro – $400.
