PlayStation 5 Logo Revealed With Expected Price And Other Details
Sony had a big presence at the CES where they finally unveiled the logo for their upcoming console the PS5. As it is customary, Sony decided to stick to its branding design and made the PS5 logo similar to the design scheme they have adhered to all these years.
The logo wasn’t the only thing revealed, Sony also showed off some of the specs that were expected but alas there was no reveal of the actual console. Though the specs are pretty impressive, fans all around the world have been speculating about the design of the new console.
We got to see the dev kit being shown off, first through leak design samples and recently got to see the pictures of the device IRL. The devkit does have a ‘V’ shape on top and though many know that the devkit does not represent the final build of the console, a lot of people have generated a liking for this brand new console.
Speaking on the hardware aspect, it does look similar to that of the Xbox Series X console, but on the design front, things could look drastically different. A lot of industry veteran has already stated that they expect Sony to win the console wars again, it will be a close competition as it is expected by us. Below are the specs that you are most likely to find in the upcoming PlayStation 5 console:
- CPU: 8 core/16 threads at 3.2Ghz with a Zen2 architecture
- GPU: Navi-based with AMD next-gen features at 12.6 to 14.2 teraflops
- Memory: 24GB total with reportedly 20GB GDDR6 at 880GB/S and 4GB DDR4 for the operating system
- 2 TB SSD
The release date is yet unknown but expects it to be around the Holiday period of 2020, the pricing will certainly be a huge deciding factor and though both Xbox and PlayStation have kept things under the blanket as for now, an insider spoke that it could be around the $500 mark.
Sony did conclude the event by stating, “There’s plenty to share about the PS5 in the months ahead. And we look forward to sharing more details, including the content that will showcase the platform and the future of gaming.”
We will certainly keep a close eye on the next generation consoles and keep you updated as soon as more information is made available.
