While we’ve known for a while that Sony is working on its next PlayStation console, we now have the first real details on what to expect thanks to Wired.
Sony have promised that the new console will support 8K graphics, 3D audio, super fast SSDs, and backwards compatibility with the PS4.
PS4 lead system architect Mark Cerny confirmed the new console is going to be more than just a minor upgrade, with entirely new hardware inside the PlayStation 5, including an eight-core CPU and a custom GPU which will bring ray-tracing graphics to a game console for the first time. The new features culminate in the console being able to support 8K graphics, if your TV is up for it.
3D audio will also be a selling point, as will the replacement of the hard drive with an SSD, which will cut load times significantly.
While there's no release date, it looks like the console will be arriving in - fingers crossed - 2020.
