Microsoft recently unveiled its Xbox Series S console. Priced at $299, it is one of Microsoft’s cheapest consoles to date, especially for a next-gen console, and if you were worried about performance, it seems that you might not need to worry too much. This is because according to The Verge’s Tom Warren, it will be faster than the PS5.
Sony’s PS5 will be launching later this year, but we imagine that based on the history of the PlayStation launches, it might be hard to get at the start. We had heard that Sony could be looking to control orders for the console by limiting it to one console per household, and if you are interested, here’s how you can get it.
Typically consoles are bundled with one controller. If you want extra, you’ll need to buy it yourself. We imagine that this will be true of the Sony PS5, but if you were thinking that if you could just reuse your PS4 controller, think again because Sony has confirmed that the PS4 controller will not work with PS5 games.
Sony will be releasing their PS5 next-gen console later this year. For the most part, if you already own a TV, it should just be a matter of plugging it in and you’re all set. However, it seems that leading up to the launch of the console, Sony has actually announced several “Ready for PlayStation 5” TVs that are apparently optimized for the console.
With the PS4, when you bought the console you would need to choose the color right out of the gate. This is because once the console is chosen, you would basically have to live with your color choice. However, Sony could be thinking of making a different approach with the upcoming PS5 console.
The price of games have increased over the years. Right now, the price most can expect to pay for triple A titles are $60, but some companies such as 2K have increased those prices to $70 for games designed for next-gen consoles like Sony’s PS5 and the upcoming Microsoft Xbox Series X.
The Sony PS5 is expected to be released later this year. Given the popularity of the PlayStation series in general, we expect that there will most likely be a rush of gamers eager to place their orders. In order to ensure that gamers will be able to purchase the console, it seems that Sony could be employing a preventive measure that will limit one console purchase per household.
Bored at home during the pandemic lockdown? If you are, you’re not alone, and it seems that Sony knows this too because according to separate reports from Bloomberg and Nikkei, it seems that Sony will be boosting the production of its PS5 by a huge margin in order to meet anticipated demand for their next-gen console.
When it comes to backwards compatibility on consoles, it’s safe to say that Microsoft has done a much better job compared to Sony. For instance, the PS4 supports backwards compatibility with PS3 games, but that’s pretty much it, whereas the Xbox One supports the original Xbox and Xbox 360 games.
Now that the Sony PS5 has been more or less revealed in full, the next thing gamers are probably wondering is how much it will cost and when it will be available for purchase. The good news is that these details should be revealed in the next couple of weeks, at least that’s according to a recent tweet by Roberto Serrano’.
Team17’s “Worms” is an extremely classic game that many gamers enjoyed back in the day. Now it looks like the game has since been reimagined in the popular battle royale genre and will be launching on both the PS4 and PS5 in late 2020 in the form of “Worms Rumbles”.
We’re sure that many gamers are looking forward to the release of Cyberpunk 2077. However, there is the question of compatibility, and whether or not they should get the version designed for next-gen consoles or the one for current consoles. The good news is that the folks at CD Projekt Red will be making it easier for you.
At the moment no one really knows how much Sony’s next-gen PS5 console will cost, but a listing on Amazon revealed that it could be priced starting at $450 and could go up to close to $600. Now according to the latest rumors, it seems that in terms of price, Microsoft could very well win on that front.
With Sony officially unveiling the PS5, there is still the question of pricing. Sony had previously hinted that it will not be cheap, but how much more expensive will it be compared to the PS4? That’s really anyone’s guess for now, but it seems that we now have an idea of how much the console could cost.
