New York (The Verge) — Sony: PlayStation 5 won’t launch in the next 12 months theverge.com/2019/4/26/1851….
Sony has revealed that its next-generation PlayStation console, likely named the PlayStation 5, will not launch before April 2020. This means we’re likely looking at a fall 2020 launch for the PS5
A Wall Street Journal reporter revealed on Twitter that Sony is telling reporters, during Q&A sessions, that the PS5 won’t be launched within the next 12 months.
Sony isn’t holding its usual E3 press conference this year, but the company did recently reveal some key specs about its upcoming console. Sony is promisingthat the PS5 will support 8K graphics, 3D audio, SSD storage, and backwards compatibility with existing PlayStation 4 titles. The PS5 will also use an eight-core CPU based on AMD’s third-gen Ryzen line, and include a GPU that supports ray-tracing graphics.
A more powerful CPU and SSD storage could be the big improvements for the next-generation PlayStation, opening up more power and raw speed for developers to use in games.
Sony also revealed today that PS4 sales now total 96.8 million units, closing in on the 100 million milestone which it’s now predicting it will hit during the next quarter. — Tom Warren/@verge
