Everything about the PS5: launch, hardware, specs, control, and look!

Sony has finally unveiled the official PlayStation 5 look, plus 26 games confirmed for the next generation! In this article, we bring these and other important information about the console, such as technical specs, hardware, price, and release date! Check it out below!

Release date – End of 2020

Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO Jim Ryan have confirmed on the company’s official website that the PlayStation 5 will even arrive in 2020! As far as we know, it will be at the end of the year, so get ready to open your wallet for Christmas.

The console name is also confirmed. It will really be PlayStation 5, without inventions. Keep an eye on this article for new updates coming soon!

Price in Reais

The gamers Brazilians should expect the PlayStation 5 to pass the R $ 5,000.00 for the first time. Remember that in 2013, when the PS4 was launched, a Sony executive confirmed that the console would arrive in Brazil at around R$ 3,999.99. The reason is due to the high import costs practiced by the country, which are around 60% to 70% of the total cost of the product.

Of course, this value will be adjusted to the price practiced abroad. In that regard, several gaming industry analysts have made their guesses over the past few months as to how much the PlayStation 5 will initially cost.

Games and backwards compatibility

We already know dozens of games that will be released on the PlayStation 5! See the 26 revealed at the console launch event:

What we can say with absolute certainty is that physical media will remain on the PS5, although there is a console version for those who don’t want to buy Blu-Ray. There will be backward compatibility with PS4 titles, which was already awaited information, but only with the console’s 100 most popular at launch.

Backward compatibility is a long-awaited feature of Sony video game owners. Unfortunately, it is not possible to play titles from previous generations on PlayStation 4 today. This announcement makes the Japanese company’s next console more attractive, especially for the Brazilian audience, which pays a high tax burden.

In addition to backward compatibility, cross-gen has already been confirmed. In other words: two friends can play the same game together online, even if one has a PS4 and the other has a PS5. This makes the current and next-generation much more connected, allowing the transition from one console to another to be gradual on the part of gamers.

There are rumors going around that the PlayStation 5 will allow us to play titles from the entire PS family, including the PS1. This may have some truth after Sony confirmed that the PS5 will feature the inclusion of PlayStation Now.
