Sony officially announced the PlayStation 5 family. The Future Of Gaming event was confirmed a few days ago and the games that will run on the console also reveled. The list of games includes some titles from Sony itself, such as Gran Turismo 7, which still has no set release date, and Spider-Man: Miles Morales, a sequel to the game released for PS4 in 2018.
Games from other major studios, such as Grand Theft Auto V, which has been confirmed for the PlayStation 5 and will arrive next year. Titles like the new NBA 2K are also on the platform.
With a vertical design, just like the Xbox Series X, the futuristic PS5 is designed to be docked and will have two versions: PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 5 Digital Version. One with a physical media player and another that supports only game downloads, but the prices have not been revealed. It can also be used horizontally if desired.
There are also several accessories such as a DualSense charging station, HD camera, wireless headset, and remote control. Sony has been teasing its fans for some time with gradual information about the device.
A few months ago the design of the controller was revealed, and the specifications also revealed in advance, having an AMD Zen 2 CPU of eight cores and a custom GPU based on AMD RDNA 2.
Custom AMD chips will provide 10.28 teraflops of power using varying frequencies on the CPU and GPU. Sony announced at the end of the event that the PlayStation 5 will be released later this year. In addition, an own SSD solution will assist in loading the games.
This SSD will provide 825 GB of storage and 5.5 GB / s of performance. The game supports 8K graphics, 3D, and 4K audio with a 120Hz refresh rate. On DualSense, the controller features adaptive triggers, tactile feedback, and a dedicated gameplay sharing button. Most of the more than 4,000 titles currently available for PlayStation 4 will run on the current model.
