PS5 Everything you need to know-Specifications-Price-Whats New-Titles

Playstation 5 all Games HD Graphics Techronicle

The next generation of gaming consoles is finally almost upon us. We got the PS 5 reveal not too long ago when we got that event with all the exclusive games and the teasers and a hardware reveal and everything. we saw the two different versions, everything's very dramatic,
Now I was going to wait typically I wait until I have a device in my hands before I can at least give my first impressions of it, let alone a review, but pretty much non-stop since that event people have been talking about it and there's just so much conversation to be had from that reveal.

Initial Thoughts

So maybe let's have that conversation now .The one main thing Sony did not reveal at that event was the price of the PS 5. I have some some guesses and if some rumors floating around and we'll get to that for sure in this post but generally yeah they didn't reveal the price officially or the release date, but there is still a lot to say about what we did see and what did get revealed.
I'm a PS4 user myself, some of you might not know that but that was it's actually my first gaming console ever and my current gaming console of choice. So I've been looking forward to PS 5 and seeing what it would bring seven years later.
I've also been keeping my eye on Xbox Series X, but that's a whole separate post. So for PS5,

First of all the design the controversial design, I'm not gonna lie I kind of do like it and I'm sure you guys will have your own thoughts in the comments. It seems like people either love it or hate it kind of like the cyber truck but there is a lot to actually think about that goes into the design of a new console.
Number one is how big is it because it's got to fit underneath a TV or somewhere where the previous box would have fit and there's no scale here in the announcement but you know there's a lot of educated guesses being made based on the size of the disk drive and those guesses peg it as basically the biggest console ever it's really tall.

So that naturally question number two is can it go sideways and yes officially it can go sideways and this is the only way will fit under my TV but then just subjectively I think it kind of looks like a futuristic version of what you might expect a next-gen console to look like from some alien planet.
But they really leaned into this aesthetic and it trickles down to the controller and the headphones and everything else. I actually think the Xbox Series X looks better, I think it looks more modern and minimal even though it's more boring if that makes sense though then again maybe there's been some mock-ups if Sony made a black version of the PS 5 I think it would change a lot more Minds get more people on board especially because white plastic doesn't have the best reputation for aging well and people keep their consoles for several years so that could be interesting to see down the road.

Two Versions of PS5

There's two versions of the PS5, The regular PS 5 and then the PlayStation 5 digital edition that's just missing the optical drive I thought it was kind of funny that so many people were caught off guard by there being these two different versions but it actually makes perfect sense for several reasons.
First of all I and then people like me will be getting the digital only version I have a good enough internet connection that I download all my games I've never bought a physical game and I don't need the blu-ray player so I'll get the digital version that's fine but there are definitely people who will buy this console who
1: Don't have amazing internet connections and can't download every single game and so they have a physical games collection and
2: People who literally use this console as their only blu-ray player.
My ps4 is my only blu-ray player right now, although I don't have any blu-rays and I don't use them but PS5 is a 4k blu-ray player and for a lot of people that's also pretty useful.
So the digital version that I'll be getting it looks a bit more elegant you know it doesn't look like they finished the design and then remembered oh right forgot we have to put an optical drive on there somewhere we'll just stick it over to the side here but then with that missing part it'll also most definitely be a bit cheaper.

The actual tech inside of the PS 5 is also of course a big upgrade from the seven-year-old ps4 as you'd expect. It's all solid state storage now instead of a hard drive. I think that's the biggest difference but it's also an AMD eight core CPU and a 10.28 teraflop variable-frequency GPU and there's 16 GB of RAM in there.
Some people including some Youtubers are comparing the power of the PS 5 to that of a modern-day like straight up tower desktop gaming PC and I don't quite see it there yet.
I think obviously something with a smaller body like that doesn't quite have the thermal envelope.
It can't really match the raw power of a gaming PC but the thing about the games here's the games can develop and optimize for every little detail every maximum of the PS 5 because everyone playing these games has the same PS 5 whereas if you're developing a PC game.
For example optimization is a bit harder, there's so many various different parts and components anywhere from a $200 to a $2000 tower could be playing your game that's much harder so you can expect these new PS 5 games to have much better lighting ray-tracing textures and just overall bigger better maps and more realism.

Talking about the Launch

We saw a ton of this in that teaser livestream. I think the games look pretty good for the most part not all dramatically like next-gen real or anything mind-blowing to the point where I feel like I need it now but you know they look like next-gen games better than PS4 games honestly there were only saw two games in that huge teaser trailer event that I really cared about and they're very different NBA 2k21 and Gran Turismo 7.
So the NBA 2k 21 trailer it was a bit cringy if I'm being honest it's like to me it's pretty obvious that they're nowhere near done with the game they didn't show any real gameplay. It was just a teaser of Zion Williamson potential future face of the NBA and a really dramatically lit gym staring down absolutely no one sweating profusely and then dunking and that's pretty much it.

Like when you're playing the gameplay itself you'll never see all this dramatic lighting and sweat but for the teaser they're like oh we got to add as much glistening sweat as possible.
The Gran Turismo I think looked really good. This looks like a game that's a lot closer done.
First of all but it looks like a game that's gonna take full advantage of the PS5 in a lot of ways and they showed much more of what looked like, you know typical gameplay and this is a game where you want it to be as realistic as possible. So you go all out with lighting and reflections and detail all over the map and of course now the SSD and the new hardware can handle all that PS5 also supports 120 Hertz 4K or 8K output.
So the future proofing is definitely real here. Now I don't have 128 Hertz or 8K TV at home like most people don't, but Gran Turismo 7 seems like the kind of game that would do great at high refresh rate I would love to play it at 120 hrtz for better reaction times in just a more responsive.

Whats New Compared to PS4?

I just thought of this just as a side note I hope the PS5 is quieter than the PS4.
I don't know how many of you guys have a PS4, but if you'll notice after like half an hour of playing 2K or really anything. The fans are spending a hundred percent like it sounds like a jet-engine about to take off and obviously with these games taking full advantage of the PS 5 again it's probably pushing it to the limits.
I just hope it doesn't have the same acoustic problem as the PS4 but just for fun I looked at another game that wasn't in the trailer the golf game PGA 2K21 and it looks nowhere near as good as the ones that were teased.
There's some teaser gameplay on their YouTube channel, just watch the trailer on Youtube and look at the Golfer, Look at the Crowds, I mean that just to me that doesn't scream Wow next-gen gaming really enabled !
You do have better textures and shading of the grass and everything's clearly a bit better than last year but yeah there's gonna be a wide range of games and how they take advantage of all this new hardware overall though from what's been revealed.

Let's just get to the price, the rumors are all over the place.
So the ps3 launched for $599 then the PS4 for $399 back in 2013 and so now people are saying with all these new incredible capabilities and all these expectations, Sony didn't announce the price because it's gonna be super expensive probably like a thousand bucks or something but that I don't know I don't think so.
And there's some rumors of course to back this up and potentially leaks as well but I think it'll cost $499 for the PS 5 and possibly $399 for the digital-only Edition something like that and I don't even think just removing the optical drive has to be a hundred dollar difference
So it might be something like $499 and $449 for the digital only versus the the main PS 5 somewhere like that like just with the history of pricing for these consoles if Sony wants a hundred million people to impulse buy and upgrade from their ps4s they can't really charge $700-$800 bucks or more for this console.
I could see it being in the $500 something ballpark but anything higher than that seems unlikely.
In India the PS5 would be around INR 50K to 60K at most.

I'm excited for better looking, more realistic games generally and the franchise's that I'm used to playing getting better and also from all the other titles they've committed to.
Just maybe trying out, one or two other games that look really fun just because I guess we have more time on our hands now.

But hey let me know what you guys think in the comments section below and now we're kind of stepping out of the usual element here given impressions of something before we actually get it. This is probably what Sony wants. But trust me, when we do get it in here at the Techronicle Office, there will be a full review. Make sure to follow us on our Social Media Platforms. Thank You.
