PS5 Release Date:

We all know it's coming, but no one seems to know exactly when. We have done the hard work for you and figured it out. Sony is a creature of habit fellow gamers, as are we all. All it takes is some mathematics and an ear to the ground of the gaming industry to start piecing together this crucial part of the puzzle. Join us on our PS5 release date page to see what these factors have revealed thus far. Check back often because we are constantly updating the page with our latest findings!

Specs: A Glimpse under the Hood

You thought trying to predict the PS5 release date was hard? We're tackling something much more difficult next. As we all know, technology evolves and changes in limitless ways with each passing year. Trying to nail down the exact path it will take is like trying to find a grain of salt on a beach. That being said, there are patterns, predictions, and signs that we can use to illuminate the path. Want to see what the future holds? It's all on our specs page ready for you to see.

Price: How High Can it Go?

The Price of a console is always a touchy subject. When it comes to the PS5, the latest rumors are showing that the console may come in two versions which could drastically affect the price of the system. The price of the PS4 showed that $400 is a price point that works, so it's doubtful that Sony will go any higher, if at all, with the PS5. What do you think the new system will cost? Head on over to our PS5 Price page to find out more and offer your opinion in the comments!

PS5 Design: Artist's Renditions

I am a master of words, but I harbor a deep respect for those who can bring images to life. We don't know for certain what the PS5 will look like, but that offers us the unique ability to consider a multitude of options. Will it be a box, will it be cloud-based, who knows? There are signs that point to something completely different than anything else we've seen, but that only fuels our imaginations. For the best PS5 eye candy on the internet, your one-stop location is our PS5 concept designs page.

War on consoles

I think people should see microsoft for which it is, being look at how Gates got his business. He ripped off his friend and made a ton of money. He then creates xbox, or he has someone to create it. That was cool because I liked new things and it was different and fun. When xbox 360 came out it was about money and stealing the market, because look at how they pushed it out too early and a lot and I mean a lot of people suffered from this in console failure. Then microsoft pays a ton of money to developers for exclusivity because they knew playstation 3 was so powerful that it would ruin them, and the fact it was more difficult to make games because it was something new to developers. This being said xbox only got fans because of better games coming to it on xbox 360, when ps3 was having a hard time with new technology in the hands of those who didn't understand it, being developers. So sony got wise and made there next playstation based off of what developers were wanting to make game with, hence the ps4. Now developers are choosing ps4 because of the right choice for gamers. Microsoft failed at its attempt to take over the market for greed, now we can all begin to see this for which it is. I mean when the ps3 came out it took pc a few years to reach the power of what it could achieve, that to me was astounding. If you are a true gamer you will have realized these things by now and would have supported the right company for the right reason, not just because your a fan. I have to say sony was not at a war microsoft was. Its really that simple to understand.

not a real upgrade

I havent bought the ps4 but it looks like it looks bigger than the first and second gen ps3. I had ps3 2gen 320 gb n ps4 is bigger without mistake. Secondly there isn't major impovement either, memory storage goes up to 1tb and a few little upgrage just like iphone 5 to 5s and 6 to 6s. I also haven't heard any release date for ps4 slim version like the ps3 slim 4gen which they said it will be out last octo or nov cant really remember. I m expecting big things from the upcoming ps5 because ps4 didn't impress me. 4k is a must feature for ps5 btw i also had ps1, ps2 in the past and ps3 was the best upgrade from either ps1 or ps2.

ps4

ps4 is the best anyone says bad about it on this side he is a sucker ps4 is way better than xbox 0ne i have both of them so i know it

PS vs Xbox

Both have there unique features. PS has better graphics as always but Xbox interface like windows 8 and 10 makes it more attractive and likely. Xbox and ps4 have unique games to play. In short ps4 is for a hardcore gamer but if you want all in entertainment with good graphics then you shall like it. It depends on person

If playstation 5 would pay 2000 dollars...i think not many people can afford that...or personally if i had the money i wont pay that much

There would be no Xbox wihtout Playstation

I was reading some ware, after the launch of the Ps1 the person that was head of Microsoft was insiperd by the PlayStation and he wanted to make his own "vershin'of the Ps and there for if there was no Ps there would be NO Xbox!!!

PS3

i wish they could have added in ps2 emulator that reads ps2 cd and DVD!! :/

SEGA

SEGA console....please come back and show all of these guys how its done.....BOOOUUUYAAHHHH

Stop after ps5

They should stop making series of PS after the launch of PS5 and the ps5 will be more expensive The games of ps5 will be also expensive

Request

i can not wait for the PS5 to come out .... i want to see a 1TB to 2TB hard drive,also i want it to have HD and 4k capabilities also would like to see multi players games without needing to have two PS5's just like what you did with the PS2 ... i want see games that don't need the internet for it to work due to internet speeds in Australia... are horrible and only in new built up areas will have the NBN network and the average part of Australia is still running on an ADSL +2 ...i want you to cater for the hole country not just for those that need to have the best of everything to get the thing to work..... by the way amazing job on the ps5 controller the size is perfect for my Big hands !!!! also if the starting price can be under $1500 this would be awesome too. If you can make it so that families can play it all together at once for some family fun .... even my mum would buy one ..... I'm not asking for much... just want Australia to enjoy it without any lag and for it to run smoothly with out needing up my internet plan and make it family friendly ..... this might even boost sales in Australia...one last thing i ware glasses to play the new goggle thingy head Gear can you make it so that i can still ware my glasses underneath the head gear ...because you know how us gamer's have 20/20 vision hehehhe well not anymore i reckon that 70% of us don't in Australia...please at least think about this things... but its still needs to have new fancy gizmos as well

PlayStation

PlayStation is the best one so far because they keep on selling out everywhere but Xbox only sells out in 2 stores in every state. PlayStation 4 is in first place and Xbox 1 is in 2nd. If your an Xbox fan, get the hell out of this web because this web only talks about PlayStation!!!

usb drive device goth more storeage end blu ray disc

Now once upon time the blu_ray disc got up to size between 50 and 75 gigabytes. The usb memorystick device is able to share up install into (usb 3.1 collect already usb drive memory stick size just adjust the early size faster update end already limited edition size end blu ray plate disc like 50 gigabyte blu ray disc plate) The usb device memory stick support up more end already old limited edition like between size from 128 gigabyte into 1+++ tetra byte usb size share betwen install into playstation five secondar addon a usb hub into playstation five the already playstation 4 not have combillity yet to addon a usb_hub to unlock more device control input with shock controler ps4&ps5

xbox is stupid

Ps4 is better because xbox has alot of things outside. Ps4 has a better gaming experience. Ps5 will be better tnan ps4 and will have a better gaming experience than xbox. The ps4 looks better than xbox one

Its all just brainstorming right now.

Its to early to start flinging the fanboy terds so to speak. The truth is all this is just brainstorming and trying to make slightly educated guesses and assumptions. The fact of the matter is that ps5 real details are not out there. The new neo model is their current focus showing a obviously predicted extended life cycle for the current ps4 line up. After all we are just now starting to see studios make more and more use of the current hardware and there is still a lot more that can be coaxed out of it even more so with the neo. That being said there is nothing wrong with trying to figure the next move but at this stage its way too early to tell. Personally I'll refrain from the whole dramatic dead horse of Xbox vs ps4 vs PC shananagins as each platform has its pros and cons and appeals to their respective groups. Despite the current landscape being dominated by those three. I think as we see the development projects become more mature and adapt at tapping the power of the current line up we will be able to better define what's next. Keep in mind ps3 games even Xbox games really didn't start to shine in the later parts of those systems life cycle and this will be no different. Not to mention the current ps4 game library has a lot more room to grow before we start talking about its next phase of life. All that being said the concepts coming out are pretty wild and probs to the artists for bringing an idea to the visual realm its things like this that help generate forward momentum and that's always a good thing IMHO

Life IS !

I must be a gamer - I have at least three games on my PS3 - Which by the way will play ps1 games - not so easy with PS2 games. So backward comparability is one of my issues with SONY. Ok, Just for the record - I don't own an xBOX so can't compare my PS3 to Microsoft. As with all electronics, there are way to beef it up, make it do more and give it better capabilities - Oh did I forget to mention - AT A COST. The gaming industry exists to make a buck and until that buck starts to die up - why improve. Sure they meaning any game industry may have 10 or 15 really good ideas sitting in the wings - if they release them all at one time then what will be left. Think of the money making opportunities. So from that I SAY - what is your wish list for the PS5, it's our demands that drive the new innovations to become reality. Virtual Reality Headsets, A good picture capture, internal video capture, A bigger hard drive, more internal memory, more controller options, better graphics, server options. Oh and lets not to forget the multi color led to change the look of my console as I play and have it automated to change colors as the intensity of the game changes. And the last piece - I mean price should be $5.00 cheaper than today's top gaming instrument - So yes I think PS5 will be a reality but at what price, and what options.

usb memory stick

usb memory stick is better end blu ray disc plate the blu ray plate support up to 50 gigabyte,,,,,,,,,,,,but the usb memory stick support up (128 giga byte // 256 giga byte) perfect for 4k install game on playstation 5 with usb memory stick support install 4k game or seppare playstation 5 with operation system install and one another with 2,5 tetra byte game install

playstation 4 ,, 1 tetra byte used up

what with and pug in harddisc exspand only support with playstation 5 ups ps harddisc exspand only support into pug in playstation like buy on el market (harddisc exspand 1 tetra byte up to 5 tetra byte only made into plug in within into playstation5)

multiplayer

PS5 needs to bring back what ps3 has and ps4 doesn't have which 6-player local play.

one more thing, reinstate 6

one more thing, reinstate 6 player local because i love WWE and other sports because it's so competitive with others and especially 6-man tag team and elimination chamber for WWE. Thank You.

Xbox one vs play station

Both groups have the same amount of team members working day in and day out on making the best system possible. It's like Verizon vs AT&T there are places where you don't get signal on Verizon and some places where you don't get signal with AT&T. My point is in our GEN there will never be the perfect system but there will always be great ones I used to be a PlayStation fan I had a ps2 to PS3 but mine got stolen then my friend introduce me to 360 and I like it but I like play station too. When I got the one it was awesome and it had great graphics. Then I went over to my friends house and he had the ps4 I played with him for a few hours and maybe I'm just stupid but I could hardly tell the difference. I'm not computer expert but I do know that there will always be a tie between PlayStation and Xbox one until some one gets more money lol

PlayStation 5

I understand it's cool to make concepts and fan websites, but they can be misleading. The PS5 is definitely coming, maybe around 2020, and your concepts look phenomenal. The price will probably be around $500.

I like all consoles, tbh.

I like all consoles, tbh. Some features are more proficient and useful than on others.Some consoles have some awesome games strictly for that console, for example Xbox has Halo, Sony has Uncharted. And I for one like both franchises.

Best gaming console

Playstation 4 has a awesome exclusive game series but with the coming of Playstation vr , Playstation 4 pro , Playstation 4 slim the family of Playstation is going bigger and bigger but Microsoft project is only for the speed like the rumors about Microsoft project Scorpio would be the fastest console in speed but it's games would be more boring . Playstation 4 pro has double speed than standard Playstation 4 and Playstation 4 slim but it's exclusive games like uncharted , horizon zero dawn, final Fantasy etc people like Playstation more than Microsoft but there is a war between Playstation and Microsoft. Microsoft will only run for speed and Playstation will run for exclusive games and growing it's family and the people will lover Playstation with its interesting adventure exclusive games !!

XAVIER

ayStation 5 will be an interactive entertainment system that will revolutionise the way unemployed men spend time together with the slogan Less reason to talk, more ways for destroying your buddy's honour. It will be so hi-tec that only newly born babies will understand its features without a ten volume encyclopedia. Using 23rd century rock-and-roll science it will run on ten hydrogen fuel cells smaller than a Smartie that never melts in your hands. PS5 and its wacky adventures will beautifully narrate the end of Earth's history before the planet becomes a great museum...that place where the cosmic gaming device came from. A device that lets you waste hours and hours...with people you don't even like that much. A few humans will survive and travel around the galaxy. They will be known as one of those people from that planet with the gaming system. Humans will wander around the galaxy until they all inter-mate with inter-mate-able species. The only remaining object of humanity...will be the PS5. The PS5 will come in a really nifty box...much bigger than the actual gaming set suspended in a new form of liquid foam bubbles and will be sealed in an extreamly strong plastic wrapper that only a butcher will be able to remove.

Ok i um i.... ya'll should

Ok i um i.... ya'll should learn to be friend Xbox and PS4 fans should become friends and play each others consoles

playstation 5 release date 2018

Thoughts from the inside

As I have programmed games on a variety of systems over the years, I think I can shed some light on some of the comments I have read so far on a few topics. Firstly, whether you prefer the Xbox series or the PS series is purely a matter of taste and brand loyalty. Technology wise, there is not much between them, they just choose to use it in different ways, though the PS4 does stress its graphics processing power which is usually considered the most important factor for gaming. Backwards compatibility is a tricky issue. The PS1 and PS2 were not fundamentally architecturally different, excpet for the increased power of the PS2 so it was relatively easy to incorporate PS1 functionality. The PS3 used the cell processor, which was a hundred per cent new and entirely different form the PS1 and PS2 which would mean creating an entirely new and separate emulator which most of the time simply isn't economically viable. The PS4 has an entirely different architectural structure again- the AMD chips it uses are much closer to the ones used in high end PC's- so the backwards compatibility issue is the same as it was for the PS3; i.e. not worth the time, effort and cost. It's a rule of thumb that to emulate a system of one architecture on an entirely new one, the new system has to be ten times as powerful as the one it is emulating. The PS series certainly fulfills that criteria with each new system but the effort to do so just isn't worth it. Developing software for the PC is not an entirely alien process for those that have only developed for consoles, as one poster suggested. All devkits (development kits) for all games systems including PC's use the C programming language- either ANSI or K &R implementations- or some variant of it, whether it be a standard such as Microsoft's C# or some proprietary version which may have machine specific external libraries. It is a relatively simple affair to develop a game that has PS, Xbox and PC versions more or less simultaneously because the core game engine code is almost entirely portable between all three. The only real differences are in the graphics and input/output code, which are inevitably machine specific. In the case of the Xbox and PC, the two are even more closely connected because the collection of hardware addressing libraries is Microsoft's DirectX platform, which runs on both in the same form. The reason why PC hardware takes so long to become as affordable compared to the incredible bang-for-the-buck you get from a console is very straightforward. Gaming consoles should technically cost double to triple what you actually pay for one in the store; the reason they are so comparatively cheap for the power that they have is that the low cost is subsidized by the sales of content, either physical discs or through online subscriptions. This works much the same way that a phone contract does, whereby you get a super-slick phone for next to nothing or even nothing at all provided you take out a certain plan with the network provider which ultimately pays for the cost of the wholesale price the provider buys the phone for, which is considerably less than you pay in store for an unlocked or network-free phone. Lastly, it's a bit too far away to really speculate on what the PS5 may or not have, though it's fun and some of it might be correct. The PS4 and Xbox still have a lot of life in them yet, and it's worth remembering that the technically best games usually come more towards the end of a systems lifespan than the beginning because by that time the developers have had all those years experience and have learned more and more with each release exactly what the system can do as they experiment and push it further and further. So the best games are probably still to come. I'm a die-hard PS fan, I should point out, though I cut my programming teeth in the early eighties and though I use a PC at home and really honed my game programming skills on it the Xbox series always seems a little clunky to me. Though I won't buy one, I think it's a good thing that multiple systems exist in the marketplace because the competition ensures quicker development of new and more innovative and powerful and cost-effective systems which benefits us all. Okay, I'm done- just wanted to give you a little insight 'behind the scenes' as it were. Happy gaming!

PS5

To be honest with you. I really am falling in love with the Playstation 5. I like the designs of them, both funny and cool. My question is that some people have said that there will be two versions of them coming out. I don't know which PS5 design of the console will be the greatest and most powerful PS5 console ever created and ever made for the future of gaming?. That's all from me. Thanks.

What the beep

I love ps4 but nothing compares to the ps1.. now that piece of technology is the gold diggers. Plz don't comment on my English as I'm English slang

If you don't like it then don

If you don't like it then don't come on here. We want to now about it. So if you don't care just leave don't have to leave hate comments. Everyone is going to like something different because I like ps4 and Xbox1.

Consoles

Consoles are just old pc specs,ps4 xbox one,low gaming pc,ps5 when relesed will be a mid range pc.....just get a pc dont that make more sence ?

???

who loves playstation

Scorpio Project

Scorpio Project - The most powerful console ever. It says all...

Patiences Goes A Long Way

Both Platforms are working their hardest to make their consoles better. None of the consoles are the same as the previous one in terms of performance, but then again I'm not some Sony and Xbox tech nerd, I'm just assuming based on how the games play on my Tv. Both are perfect, but the developers are working to make their consoles better, and be glad that they still make consoles because some of you all talk like you will never be satisfied with Sony and Xbox made, and don't think that they've been working to make better!

None

Stop talking any How and help them come out with somegood thing or idea that will help them can you see they are trying their best keep up the god work guy somegood more strategy games pls

Wait a minute.....is there a ps5 coming...!!!??

according to my resources the ps1 is released in december 1994....and both ps1 slim and ps2 are released in 2000.....ps2 slim in 2004 ps3 is released in 2006 ps3 slim in 2009 and ps3 super slim in 2012....ps4 in november 2013.....ps4 slim and ps4 pro in september 2016, november 2016 respectively....well..that makes the gap between sony's consoles around 6 years right....and what about ps5...when will it be realeased...???? if in 2018 i don't think so...cause that is 5 years after ps4... i mean it coud at least be launched in late 2019 to make the gap between it and ps4 6-7 years..what do you think guys am i right...!!!!? and believe or not..... i'm 17 i never had a playstation even though i loved video games so much and still love them and i am an african...!!!!

No madden game PlayStation 5

Okay,madden nfl series sucks so there won't be a madden nfl game on PlayStation 5,not going to happen,ditching sports generation of gaming this time call of duty series and a whole alot more except sports gaming,lol?

with out other game systems pre-nes

Without other game systems like the odosey by Magnavox- that's right they also made a counsole and Atari, Sega, comador64, and Nintendo all came after. I have played them all from the odosey my father had to the most recent ones the ps4 and xbox360, Nintendo Wii, if you could take Xbox graphics with Nintendo style control with ps4 various game options and make one system grammars acrossed the globe would be impressed.

playstation 4 being a sellout will ps5 be the same?

Ive been playing from PS1 up to PS3, I will not be buying anymore playstations after the PS3 model because "PS4 you have to pay to play online & I'm not doing it". Bad enough we have to pay crazy prices for system & games plus have to pay for internet & now have to pay to play online what a rip off. I'm taking COD to the next level by getting off the couch & playing airsoft COD & i'm not the only one doing this because of all this... so thank you Playstation 12&3 for the years of fun & as for xbox4 you wont get a dime from me :p

How da fuq did mobile phones get into this

going down comments yep xbox fan boys vs playstation fan boys not surprised then how dafuq did apple get involved in this. I'm here to see if I should switch to playstation not see who copied who first.

new configurations people want

i love playstation games but with the configuration now xbox is in lead with these configurations i think if these configurations are in ps5 then ps5 will be the epic hit 1.backward compatibility (for the games from ps1 to ps5) 2.voice commanding 3.4k gaming 4.video racording without any lagging 5.future compatibility (i think if ps5 has this one it will become epic hit) talking about future compatibility that ps5 should support the games which will be released for the next console with lowest setting like 1080p gaming.. so that people will love that future compatibility where xbox one is lacking.. it will be a epic hit if ps5 has above 5 compatibilities.so the xbox scorpio doesnt stand a chance with ps5

Ps

I have played both systems and prefer the PS4 over the xbox1. But I love halo and gears of war. Just wish those games were not specific to Xbox system. Just my own opinion. That is all.

PS5 online

I think PS5 would attract and maintain bigger audience if they offer free online game play like ho it was offered in PS3. I would buy the console on the release date instead of getting it from a friend or waiting for the price to drop. That is where playstation had xbox beat.
