take it with a grain of salt




Someone posted on 4chan(via TechTastic) a treasure trove of information about the PS5. None of this is confirmed for the time being, but there’s a good chance this leak is the real deal.

According to the leak, the PS5 launch event will go down on February 5th, 2020 at a PlayStation meeting to be hosted at the Sony Hall in New York


The console design, controller, UI/home screen, certain features, console specs, talk from third parties/indie publishers, as well as announcements for PS5 exclusives will be shown.

Buzz words for the console’s features include “little to no load times”, “blazing fast downloads”, “immersive controls”, “modular installs for games, download whatever”, “disc drive included”, and “download the games, or stream the games as an option” (we’re looking at you Stadia)
The leaker says the PS5 will have 10 teraflops of GPU power, while the cheaper 2020 Xbox will get about half that at 4 teraflops. Interestingly, a now-disputed PS5 rumor said the console will have a GPU capable of 9.2 teraflops, while the Xbox would go to 12 teraflops.

The 4chan user also said that PlayStation Now will play a vital role in the PS5’s future, as it will let you access games via a subscription fee or just play your own games. Each PS5 purchase will come with a three-month PS Now trial. Remote Play will support PS5 gameplay on smartphone, tablet, laptop, and desktop. All you need is a Wi-Fi or cellular connection to stream games from the console. The mobile PS5 app will get a makeover, although the virtual assistant we’ve read so much about wasn’t mentioned in this new report.

The leaker also touched on PS5 backward compatibility support, saying it’ll be a big feature for the new console:

Backwards compatibility with all PS4 games is also a big feature. Through a new transferring features, users will easily transfer their PS4 games to the PS5 if those games are downloaded. Save data/backups for PS4 games will also be transferable.
Backwards compatibility is such a major feature, that games from all 5 PlayStation platforms (PS1, PS2, PSP, PS3, and PS4), will be compatible on PS5, making it an “ultimate PlayStation console”, putting an emphasis on past and present gaming. More details about backwards compatibility will be discussed at a later date, especially at E3.
DualShock 4 controllers, PSVR, and other PS4 accessories will be forwards compatible on the console as well, making it easy for existing PS4 to transition to the PS5 as well.

I know this are just leaks and rumours, but if ps5 turns out a couple of tflop weaker than the xbox sx, I will be disappointed.

edit:

this is my biggest desire right now. I own 4 dualshocks 4, all metal colors and I love them. I'm also planning on getting that new attachment for the back buttons on the ds4 and it would be a shame if its all going to waste in less than a year.

TBF, there's been some gaming leaks on 4Chan that ended up being right. I think one involving one of the Souls games and some E3 stuff last year ended up being mostly accurate.

Nothing in this leak is really that surprising; kinda digging the PS Now stuff though if it turns out to be true.

...that said, why TF would you use "disc drive included" as a buzzword or marketing point? :LOL: Nothing revolutionary or invigorating about that, we've had disc-based consoles since the '90s.

Take this stuff to the OT. This has been discussed many times over in there.
