The PlayStation has always offered more to the AV world than just games. It has scored well with DVD playback, Blu-rays and 4K streaming over the years. So what will the PlayStation 5 have to offer at launch? Will it be an 8K machine? Will it still support optical media? When is the PS5 release date? How much will the PS5 cost? And will there be Black Friday deals on the PS4?
While we can’t quite answer all of this just yet, Sony PlayStation’s lead architect and console producer, Mike Cerny, did drop a whole load of what to expect from the PS5 in an April 2019 interview and has since, alongside Sony CEO Jim Ryan, expanded on that in October. Sony has also, finally, officially confirmed some details, including the official name and release date, and there’s even a leaked image of what looks like the very first glimpse of the PS5 and some PS5 accessories too.
