Every gen the hype is unreal for consoles yet it will be 1660Ti performance (Navi lite sku) with ZEN2 CPU... it will still be 30fps because 60fps would kill the console too soon + they wouldnt be able to push graphics that much and maybe we could finalyl see native 4K at 30fps stable. The expectations for consoles always go waaaay above than they endup being.
Ray Tracing is gonna be a big deal and will make games look even better considering how they looked like on PC. I highly doubt games would be 60fps on Ray Tracing since a rtx 2080ti still can’t do it unless it’s Ray Tracing support development issue which console development can improve on.
I just really want backwards compatibility with PS3 games. Just able to pop in a PS3 or PS4 disc would be really great & having better frame rate on those games would be even better, it would be incredible. I’m disappointed they didn’t confirm PS3 BC.
Cross play is probably looking good I think despite us knowing nothing. We really need cross play, even having it for PS3/PS4 games too. Some genres or specific games would only be available with Xbox & Switch since PC has better aiming for FPS games & stuff.
Any idea why Sony revealed these specs and in this way? I am still beside myself. I'm not complaining, but why not wait till their coming PSX (whenever that is)? The reveal seems like a casual talk to Wired. I don't think this news will do anything to MS because MS will probably have a flashy reveal at E3 and this is just a short written article.
Also, this makes me think PS5 will launch in 2020. Until now, I was considering 2021 as the target due to hardware supply.
With specs this good for base PS5, imagine what the PS5 Pro will be. I'm not sure they're even leaving any room for PS5 Pro with all this new kit, unless they launch 2 models simultaneously and these are the specs for the Pro.
