Game Release Dates Far Cry 6 and Red Dead 2

Normally these kind of rumours are ignored, especially with such little noise coming from Sony. However, Thong correctly predicted the PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro. It’s worth taking his words into consideration.

Another analyst has offered an alternative but not entirely dissimilar opinion. Wedbush Securities’ Michael Pachter believes the PS5 will launch in 2019, and be backward compatible with PS4 Pro games. Pachter believes Sony is waiting for an increasing saturation of 4K TVs in consumer households before launching new hardware.

The PlayStation 5 simply must offer backwards compatibility so that all PS4 games work on the machine.

My expectation that is that it’s not coming out in 2018. That is a 2019 0r 2020 but probably 2019. Sony is probably timing it better because they are going to bring out a 4K capable device when the 4K TV market reaches 50% in the USA and 35% in the rest of the world. Again, without any announcements, we can’t fully assess what the PlayStation 5 will look like from a hardware perspective. We can, however, take a look at the competition, and see how Sony will compete.

Let’s take a look at the Xbox One X. It has an an eight-core 2.3 GHz CPU, paired with 12GB GDDR5 memory and a GPU sporting 40 compute units operating at 1172MHz. In layman’s terms, this is a mid-range 2017 gaming PC, but with lots of clever software and hardware tricks to squeeze maximum performance out of it.

  • CPT 2.3 GHz
  • Ram 12GB GDDR5
  • GPU sporting 40 compute units
  • 4k TV Supports

Both Xbox One X and PS4 Pro, as they’re not fully fledged ‘next-gen’ consoles, play all current and future Xbox One and PS4 titles respectively, but with improvements over being played on base consoles.

The PlayStation 5 simply must offer backwards compatibility so that all PS4 games work on the machine.
