Yeah so then I can play games like Sekiro and RDR2 and have a smoother experience.. I like it


I'm sure it will be similar to playing a PS4 or Xbox One title on a PS4 Pro or Xbox One X (still such a shitty name). The gameplay will be upgraded without the user experiencing any obstacles.

It's pretty crazy that consoles are taking this long to switch to SSDs.

First PS5 details: https://www.wired.com/story/exclusive-sony-next-gen-console/

-Backwards compatibility with PS4 confirmed!
-SSD for faster loading times
-Capable of 8k output
-Physical media supported
-8 core processor
-ray tracing (whatever the hell that is)
-PS4/PS5 simultaneous releases (looking at you Death Stranding)


This all sounds like pretty good news. If the backwards compatibility is for both digital and physical games, I will definitely consider selling my PS4 Pro early in the PS5's lifespan to help offset the cost of a new system.

What was the cost of a 500 gb SSD in 2013? To make that work and still fall in the 399.99 price point?

Same. I'm sure it will be for both physical and digital.

The One X came out in like late 2017, right? It has a 5,400 RPM drive!

SanDisk, ADATA and others were already making $125 to $150 1TB SSDs for consumers at that point.

WD was making a 1TB hybrid drive for like $79.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't know what ray tracing is.

Damn how did I miss this today, thanks for posting! the SSD is GREAT news as is the compatibility and 8K output. I seriously hope they can get us more than 1TB of space though. With the way games sizes are increasing, I don't think they have any choice up to start making 2-3TB standard, unless they start pushing harder on the externals

Rumor: PS5 to cost $499 at launch.

People will complain and it will still sell out.

Sounds about right. It won't surprise me if games cost 65 or 70 bucks a pop either in the new generation.
