PS5 Price May Be Higher than PS4 Due to 'Advanced Feature Set'

PS5 lead system architect Mark Cerny has shown off some of the internal components of the next-generation PlayStation - which he is technically not now calling PlayStation 5 - which will include a high-spec solid state drive, a GPU capable of supporting ray tracing, will support PS4 backwards compatibility, and won't be download-only. While Sony has laid bare what to expect from the PS5 in terms of specifications, backwards compatibility, and the inclusion of a solid state drive in conversation with Wired, there was no mention of the console's price. We don't even have an official name for the machine yet (Cerny won't commit to calling it a PlayStation 5 yet, apparently) but this new piece - which you can read in full here - highlights the headline features of the upcoming hardware. Furthermore, Sony also confirmed that there's a chance for possible cross-platform releases.

It's been no real secret that Sony is working on a successor to the massively popular PlayStation 4. One thing that has never been made clear outside of actual gameplay mechanics is a release date.

The PS5 will still have a disc drive, so an all-digital future is still not coming for the Sony console family. It will still be based on PC hardware, specifically AMD Ryzen (7nm Zen 2) and Radeon Navi graphics, but it will be much faster and capable due mainly to the switch from a conventional hard drive to SSD (solid state drive) and support for ray tracing. While ray tracing is a staple of Hollywood visual effects and is beginning to worm its way into high-end processors and Nvidia's recently announced RTX line, no game console has been able to manage it. Yet. The PS5 will be the first gaming console to feature ray-tracing.

The actress further added that she is on a break from the entertainment industry to focus on her health. Priyanka Chopra is often spotted having a ball with her in-laws Sophie Turner and Danielle Jonas .

While Sony isn't giving details on the SSD specifications, Cerny hinted at the possibility of propriety tech at play. He didn't give any specifics, but he did offer up a Spider-Man demo in which it took 0.8 seconds to fast travel to a different part of Manhattan - on a PS4 Pro, that same fast travel sequence takes 15 seconds. Cerny then showed the exact same load on a PS5 dev kit.

Towards the end of the report, the subject of cross-generation releases is brought up, where Death Stranding is touched upon. Because it is based on the same hardware architecture, it will also be backwards compatible with PlayStation 4 games.

Sony did not comment on its plans for software, services or PSVR. Now we'll have to see how Microsoft responds.
