Rumor: Secret Email Hints At Huge PS5 Reveal In Feb 2020

Forums - Sony Discussion - Rumor: Secret Email Hints At Huge PS5 Reveal In Feb 2020

I dunno. it is an easy think to make up. I also somehow doubt PSVR2 shows up now.
I can't see Sony trying to push a brand new expensive console, and a brand new expensive peripheral at the same time. PSVR1 being forward compatible makes me believe PSVR2 announcement is a year after PS5 is out.

But whatever I suppose. I am ok with anything

Just wondering what Sony fans are most excited about when it comes to this reveal:

Specs, Form Factor, Controller Design, User Interface, Tech demos, Game announcements?

Specs - Whatever they can offer for $499 msrp. I'll accept lesser potential graphical fidelity for super short loading times.

Form - Whatever is necessary for it to be universally accepted as quiet, while not looking like a big boring flat square box. OG PS3 size is the max acceptable.

Control - Assuming the light bar has to remain and be lit, make an extremely dim option if not off, otherwise I'm content with the DS4.

UI - Snappier and more options. The basic stock layout is quite good, but allowing more personalization of that wouldn't hurt. It's almost too clean and could use a little clutter. I'd really like it if they used more screen space. When looking through who's online even in custom lists, less scrolling would be nice and they have some space to do that.

Demos - Running Crysis flawlessly at 4k/60 with some ray tracing.

Games - At least 1 new SIE IP and enough SIE titles to guarantee 2 or more AAA games each year for the first couple of years.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

I'd rather they wait another year (or two!). I'm not even done with my PS3 yet, I don't have time for a PS5 as well!



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

*deflated balloon*

That's like the least surprising rumors of them all but I guess it goes with how Sony does their usual thing, effective yet borish.

Now, knowing they won't probably unveil their next generation for the PSVR2 in the same year as the new console, I think I'll play the waiting game fine.

PS5 should be released this year, it's not fair that pc-gamers get new components earlier then console players. I want PS5 now not in 1+ year, Zen2 and Navi is ready even if Sony had to release at $600 this year I think it's worth it, they can reduce the price next year to $500

We had this leak recently, someone found this in an exploit in amd drivers (I think)

The clock speed is an exact match for PS4 and PS4 pro with PS5 with 2ghz. 36CU clocked at 2ghz gives 9,2TF, now I'm sceptical of this I think we all should expect 36CU clocked between 1,5-1,6ghz for both next-gen consoles. For the rest of the specs I'm expecting a 8-core zen2 with clocked at 3,2 ghz, 16GB Vram 448-512 GB/s memory speed, 4-6GB ddr4 for OS and cache for the SSD and 1TB SSD.

Form factor will be a big box with a big FAN (no vapor cooler!), I want no changes to the controller, maybe they can improve the sticks and do buttons under the controller so we can Jump and aim at same time, User interface exactly the same, no changes and I hope Sony is smart and do only PS5 exclusive games not cross-gen like microsoft.

Good Can't wait to see what Sony is preparing. They are in for the longrun and I have a feeling they will want to hit it out of the park.

If they delayed PS5, that'd just mean you'd get another year or two more games on PS4, meaning that in 2022 you still wouldn't be ready lol.



LTD Sales Predictions: PS4 - 130m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 52m

Pretty much agree with all of this. 1.5ghz GPU clock, 2ghz seems ridiculous. 2.8-3.2ghz CPU clock it'll have 8 cores / 16 threads but I expect performance will be closer to the 6 core / 12 thread Ryzen 5 processors. I'm not sure an SSD will be used for main storage though, the Scarlett video mentioned using an SSD like virtual ram, and I think PS5 will also take this route. SSD is still expensive, and if it is the main storage option it would make upgrading for consumers to store more games expensive also, as I doubt they'd support HDD at all if it comes bundled with an SSD. They also mentioned a custom interface for the SSD in PS5, which might mean SSD's on the market won't be compatible, which again makes me think this is going to be a non-expandable internal cache.

Here's a patent that I think may be relevant from June. https://uk.ign.com/articles/2019/06/24/sonys-patented-another-way-to-reduce-loading-times

"The patent, titled 'System and method for dynamically loading game software for smooth game play', describes a technology that loads in data in advance in order to prevent load screens.

The patent explains that the system can monitor the player’s character, and use this information to load in new areas in preparation as the player approaches them."

I think the PS5 will have a small ssd, 32gb-120gb, and a HDD for main storage. During gameplay in places where the HDD would normally be mostly idle, the game will load data from the HDD onto the SSD in preparation, based on what it thinks it's going to need to load next, I.E the next level or the closest area. Then when the time comes this data is already on the SSD ready to be loaded into memory at a much faster rate. Data will also be cached onto the SSD while you are installing a game, so when you first boot the game to the main menu/ first level it still loads fast. Eventually games that you haven't played in a long time will have their data removed from the SSD to make room.

Though SSD prices are coming down, I already think $500 is pushing it for the specs.

Lines up with the PS4 reveal. Which is also why this would be an easy guess rather than an actual leak.
But yeah, if it doesn't happen at the end of this year, the at the start of next year seems probable.
