Somewhere, Team Xbox is shaking with unbridled console war fear.
After weeks and weeks of rumors, Playstation finally decided to dip their toes into the 2020 console game yesterday with their PS5 Tech Demo. Check it out for yourself!
Breaking Down The Beauty
The demo showcased the indescribably terrific power of the next generation of Unreal Engine. The amount of quality that these PS5 graphics contain is like the video game equivalent of Anakin Skywalker’s midi-chlorian count. NO ONE has seen the high graphic quality of this caliber before.
Here is an official word from Playstation about their upcoming console:
"We’ve begun to unveil more details behind the technical and hardware components that make PlayStation 5 such an innovative and powerful platform – the ultra-high-speed SSD, integrated custom I/O system, custom AMD GPU with ray tracing, and highly immersive 3D audio.
With these capabilities, PS5™ will allow developers to maximize their creativity, building expansive worlds and new play experiences in the games they design."

So what exactly are the specs of the PS5? AMD Zen 2-based CPU with 8 cores at 3.5GHz. 16GB of GDDR6 memory and a custom RDNA 2 AMD GPU that puts out 10.28 TFLOPs of processing power.
It will also contain ray-tracing, a beyond super-fast SSD, a built-in 4K Blu-ray player and, as it is almost standard nowadays, the PS5 will be backward compatible with most if not all of the prior PS4 catalog.
This is where the internet usually goes haywire. Fans, regardless of diehard love for Playstation, usually decide to downvote for chaotic neutral anonymity. Take a look at Xbox’s latest showcase. Yet, PS5 fans have reacted to this presentation in such a positive light it is a little refreshing.
The PlayStation 5 is an upcoming home video game console developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment. Announced as the successor to the PlayStation 4 in 2019, its launch is scheduled for late 2020.
