Sony: PlayStation 5 to feature 8K, 3D audio, ray tracing & backwards compatibility

Sony: PlayStation 5 to feature 8K, 3D audio, ray tracing & backwards compatibility

The system will still accept physical media, and "Because it's based in part on the PS4's architecture, it will also be backward-compatible with games for that console".

The console will feature an AMD chip with a custom unit for 3D audio. On a PS4 Pro, the game took about 15 seconds to load the new scene. However, he did confirm that the PlayStation VR headset as it now exists will be compatible with the next PlayStation console.

Sony won't be at E3 in June this year and AMD's earnings release is scheduled for April 24, so it's probably not surprising that Sony made a decision to provide us with some details now. The Spider-Man demo is telling (Spider-Man 2 for PS5 has got to be in the works), and Wired points out that a smile from Cerny when asked about Death Stranding all but confirms it as a PS4/PS5 cross-generational release. Cerny fired up 2018's Spider-Man on both a PS4 and a next-gen prototype, and used the fast travel system on both systems to demonstrate how this would speed up load times.

'Mary Tyler Moore Show' actress Georgia Engel dies at 70
According to a close friend, her cause of death will remain unknown without an autopsy because she was Christian Scientist. Funeral services for Engel, whose survivors include her sisters Robin Engel and Penny Lusk, will be private, Quilty said.

In a new exclusive by Wired, some key PS5 specs have now been confirmed, as well as a lot of important questions answered. If that sounds impressive, you haven't seen anything yet. "A number of studios have been working with it, though, and Sony recently accelerated its deployment of devkits so that game creators will have the time they need to adjust to its capabilities".

Will also support 8KPlayStation 5 will also support 8K graphics but Cerny did not provide further details. Well ahead of E3 and their separate official PS5 event, Sony is dropping knowledge kernels on us as to what the next generation of hardware actually entails, and the info is substantial. These SSDs are relatively prevalent now in laptops, and what Sony is bringing to the next PlayStation is described as being specialized for the hardware.

Jargon aside, this basically means that you can expect the appearance of lighting on any kind of surface to look much, much better than in current PS4 games. Now we'll have to see how Microsoft responds. Furthermore, the console has been in development for the past 4 years and it is not a spec upgrade like the PS4 Pro was. For more details on the console, be sure to check out the full Wired interview. Whenever the PS5 is finally ready to hit store shelves, we can promise you one thing: we're going to be ready.
