Sony has just dropped the first PlayStation 5 details out of nowhere.

Mark Cerny, who was the lead Architect for PlayStation 4 has revealed the first PlayStation 5 details in an exclusive for Wired. This is the first time that Sony has spoken about their next-gen console officially.

It’s been revealed that the console will release in 2020 and has spent four years in development. It will sport a 8 core AMD Zen 2 and will support ray-tracing with its GPU. It will also have an extremely high-end SSD.

Playstation 5 is launching this week and it looks like some people will be getting them early, just like the XBX. Just remember that there are likely going to be some day one patches, so if you do get yours early and there are any issues then they'll likely be sorted on the real launch day.

The old thread is here for reference

If anyone has a new gaming area or a new TV or something to show off then remember you can showboat here

Jesus, I can't imagine it any bigger than what it is already.

And for the lol's

They are turning into PC’s. The average gaming PC case is probably bigger than the PS5 so not surprising.

I recon Japan would struggle with the amount of living space they have. The vertical nature of the PS5 and the piece of art design (like it or loath it) makes me think they know it’ll end up out in the open or on top of shelves etc. Previously they could be vertical but not sure many actually had them like that.

Looking forward to the slim redesign in a few years, because the current version is ugly.

I'm now in a position where I don't know where to set my PS5 up, I was going to put it on it's side where the PS4 is but now thinking it's better to have it upright.

What games are you guys getting and what do you plan on playing first?

A lot of the things I'm most excited for won't be out until next year, so I'm still not really sure what I'll boot up first. Maybe Astro to suss out the controller?

Picking up Miles Morales and will play Astros Playroom, Bugsnax and Fortnite as freebies.

Having essentially missed out on the PS4 generation the PS Classics will keep me busy for a long time as well.
