Tech Talk: Improvements you can look forward to on the upcoming PS5 console

Sony has finally released the first details about its next PlayStation console.

Gamers have been waiting patiently to find out any information about PS4’s replacement, six years after PS4’s release but until now details have been kept firmly under wraps.

Now Sony’s system architect Mark Cerny has released information about what the “next-gen console” will look like. In a recent interview, he reveals PS5 which will be available for purchase in 2020 will be much faster, more powerful and include improved audio, BBC reported.

According to the BBC report, the new console will include a high-speed solid-state hard drive (SSD)with the point of the SSD is to dramatically reduce things like loading times which will make everyone’s gaming experience a bit better.

For example, when playing Spider-Man on a PS4 it can take 15 seconds to fast travel between different locations. A demonstration that showed the same task taking just 0.8 seconds on the new machine. “No matter how powered up you get as Spider-Man, you can never go any faster than this,” he says about the PlayStation 4.

Another big focus for the next-gen console is 3D audio. “With the next console the dream is to show how dramatically different the audio experience can be,” he says.

PS5 (which isn’t the official name of the new console) will see gamers being immersed in audio from above, behind and from the side, according to Cerny, and will be experienced best through headphones.

“The next PlayStation supports ray-tracing graphics the first time a game console has ever managed graphics like it,” Cerny says.

They’re usually used in Hollywood special effects, and occasionally in high-end processors. It means users of the next-gen PlayStation will receive much better, and more realistic, visuals.

It’s also worth noting that while the PS5 will have all of these improvements, you don’t need to worry about compatibility with PS4 games. The new console will still take physical discs, and gamers can still play PlayStation 4 games on the new console.

However, the details of when exactly it will be released, prices and the name of this next generation console have yet to be released but The Sauce will keep you updated.

The Sauce earlier reported that gaming is set to see a revolution as streaming will change up the gamers’ experience.
