Just as treasure hunting california important as the treasure hunting california DualSense Controller are the PS5 specs discussed at treasure hunting california Sony's March reveal event. treasure hunting california Lead system architect Mark Cerny treasure hunting california provided us with a deep dive into the treasure hunting california PS5's system treasure hunting california architecture, revealing the technical inner workings of treasure hunting california the PS5. We'll cover them in more detail down treasure hunting california below, treasure hunting california but for treasure hunting california now treasure hunting california know that the PS5 is rocking treasure hunting california an AMD treasure hunting california Zen 2-based CPU with 8 cores treasure hunting california at 3.5GHz, 16GB treasure hunting california of GDDR6 treasure hunting california memory and treasure hunting california a custom treasure hunting california RDNA treasure hunting california 2 AMD GPU treasure hunting california that puts treasure hunting california out 10.28 TFLOPs of treasure hunting california processing power.

Sony has officially confirmed that the PS5 treasure hunting california will release "in treasure hunting california time for treasure hunting california Holiday 2020", so likely some treasure hunting california time between October and December treasure hunting california 2020. A leak has suggested that the treasure hunting california release date will be November treasure hunting california 20, 2020 treasure hunting california but that's yet to be confirmed – but it's treasure hunting california in the right treasure hunting california window, treasure hunting california and it would leave time before Christmas to get those treasure hunting california orders treasure hunting california in.

This would put the PlayStation 5 treasure hunting california in treasure hunting california direct competition with Microsoft's treasure hunting california Xbox Series X, which is releasing treasure hunting california during treasure hunting california the same period. treasure hunting california Game on.

Despite treasure hunting california rumors, a Sony PR treasure hunting california has confirmed the PS5's release treasure hunting california date has not been delayed by treasure hunting california coronavirus so we should still see the treasure hunting california next-gen console release in late 2020 treasure hunting california - even if treasure hunting california we're not sure treasure hunting california exactly when that will be. 

We're treasure hunting california expecting to find treasure hunting california out the PlayStation 5's official release date treasure hunting california in treasure hunting california the coming months, having not been treasure hunting california revealed at the March 18 technical talk.

Sony hasn't treasure hunting california officially confirmed treasure hunting california a PS5 treasure hunting california price yet treasure hunting california and, according to the treasure hunting california company, that's treasure hunting california because it hasn't actually treasure hunting california decided how much the next-gen console will cost.

In a treasure hunting california quarterly treasure hunting california earnings call (via Spiel Times), Sony's treasure hunting california chief financial officer Hiroki Totoki revealed treasure hunting california the company still hasn't nailed down the treasure hunting california PS5 price.

"What is treasure hunting california not very clear or visible treasure hunting california is because we treasure hunting california are competing in the space, treasure hunting california so it’s very difficult to discuss anything about treasure hunting california the treasure hunting california price treasure hunting california at this point of time, treasure hunting california and depending upon the price level, we treasure hunting california may have treasure hunting california to determine the promotion that we treasure hunting california are going to treasure hunting california deploy and how much costs we are prepared treasure hunting california to pay," Totoki explained.

“First, we must treasure hunting california absolutely control the labour cost, treasure hunting california the personnel cost, it must be controlled, treasure hunting california and the initial treasure hunting california ramp up, how treasure hunting california much can treasure hunting california we prepare initially, we will work on the treasure hunting california production and treasure hunting california the treasure hunting california sales and treasure hunting california we will have to prepare treasure hunting california the right volume as we launch treasure hunting california this," treasure hunting california Totoki continued.

“It’s a balancing act treasure hunting california it’s very difficult to say treasure hunting california anything concrete at this point of treasure hunting california time," Totoki said. But we treasure hunting california do know that treasure hunting california Sony treasure hunting california is treasure hunting california aiming for "the best balance so that treasure hunting california we will be treasure hunting california profitable in treasure hunting california the life, during the life of treasure hunting california this product."

While Sony may not have a treasure hunting california price nailed treasure hunting california down, treasure hunting california there have been treasure hunting california rumors about how treasure hunting california much the PS5 could treasure hunting california cost. treasure hunting california While treasure hunting california the latest PS5 price leaks are wild – treasure hunting california and can't be trusted - some predictions seem treasure hunting california a bit more treasure hunting california feasible (even if they're not reliable). 

One rumor has suggested that the console will treasure hunting california cost $499 treasure hunting california in North America treasure hunting california when it launches. Naturally this treasure hunting california should be treated treasure hunting california with treasure hunting california skepticism, but treasure hunting california it would be welcome news if treasure hunting california the console treasure hunting california did launch at treasure hunting california this price, as it's only $100 treasure hunting california more than the launch price of the PS4 and treasure hunting california PS4 Pro.

We think this could treasure hunting california be the most likely treasure hunting california price for the console, however, treasure hunting california that could be wishful treasure hunting california thinking. treasure hunting california A treasure hunting california recent report treasure hunting california by Bloomberg treasure hunting california claims that Sony will not be making treasure hunting california as many PlayStation 5 treasure hunting california consoles for launch as it treasure hunting california did for treasure hunting california the PS4's launch back in 2013, despite treasure hunting california no delay treasure hunting california to production or on sale date treasure hunting california being expected. 

Bloomberg's sources are treasure hunting california anticipating shipments treasure hunting california to max treasure hunting california out at six million treasure hunting california consoles through to March of 2021, treasure hunting california whereas the PS4 sold 7.5 million over treasure hunting california the same post-launch time period treasure hunting california – despite itself suffering a delay.

According treasure hunting california to the report, Sony treasure hunting california is simply anticipating less demand. This is treasure hunting california likely due to what is expected treasure hunting california to be treasure hunting california a higher asking treasure hunting california price for the PS5 than the PS4 treasure hunting california launched treasure hunting california with. The PS5 is expected to really push treasure hunting california the boat out treasure hunting california in terms of high-end components, and as treasure hunting california such treasure hunting california will be met with a higher price tag. 

However, Microsoft’s treasure hunting california plans for the Xbox Series X are key here, and treasure hunting california Sony could treasure hunting california well decide to sell the hardware at a slight treasure hunting california loss to stay competitive with the other treasure hunting california console. The PS4 benefited from a lower treasure hunting california cost than the treasure hunting california Xbox One, and Sony likely won’t treasure hunting california be keen to treasure hunting california reverse that treasure hunting california for this generation. We hope.

We treasure hunting california can expect that the console's price treasure hunting california will be in treasure hunting california line with treasure hunting california the treasure hunting california technology treasure hunting california it uses, but Sony will also treasure hunting california have to be aware of treasure hunting california its competition. It's treasure hunting california unlikely, with the Xbox Series X, that Microsoft treasure hunting california will repeat the treasure hunting california mistake it made by treasure hunting california launching the Xbox One at a treasure hunting california prohibitively high price treasure hunting california point, so treasure hunting california Sony will have treasure hunting california to ensure treasure hunting california that treasure hunting california it doesn't make treasure hunting california a similar treasure hunting california mistake by treasure hunting california making the PS5 treasure hunting california too expensive.

Sony finally lifted the hood treasure hunting california on the PlayStation 5 treasure hunting california during treasure hunting california its first official treasure hunting california PS5 treasure hunting california treasure hunting california reveal event, giving us treasure hunting california a better idea of the treasure hunting california specs treasure hunting california the next-gen console will offer. treasure hunting california But what do treasure hunting california we treasure hunting california think?

What's interesting treasure hunting california so far treasure hunting california is Sony's commitment to custom silicon, with a full focus treasure hunting california on raising treasure hunting california gaming capabilities to the treasure hunting california next treasure hunting california level, without alienating developers now comfortable treasure hunting california with developing on the PS4. treasure hunting california Custom treasure hunting california hardware in the PS3 proved treasure hunting california to be a treasure hunting california difficult element for devs to treasure hunting california get their heads around, but the PS5 treasure hunting california aims to be as developer-friendly as treasure hunting california possible.

The importance of treasure hunting california the SSD
As treasure hunting california has already been explored, treasure hunting california the SSD is key treasure hunting california to the PlayStation treasure hunting california 5 experience. Internal storage treasure hunting california will be built in at 825GB for the custom treasure hunting california SSD – treasure hunting california that's less than you'll find in the Xbox Series treasure hunting california X, but with just treasure hunting california as clever an treasure hunting california implementation of the technology.

SSDs don’t just treasure hunting california load faster, but allow for treasure hunting california bigger open worlds, theoretically. Developers don’t need to treasure hunting california make games with smaller treasure hunting california worlds due to the limitations of treasure hunting california mechanical hard treasure hunting california drives, while SSDs will treasure hunting california also allow system treasure hunting california memory treasure hunting california to be used more effectively.

SSDs treasure hunting california have more bandwidth, so data treasure hunting california can be loaded from the treasure hunting california SSD when treasure hunting california it’s needed, rather than heaps of potentially treasure hunting california needless data being loaded into RAM. In pure gameplay terms treasure hunting california that means that games will suffer less treasure hunting california from texture pop-in, while load times treasure hunting california will be hugely treasure hunting california reduced when using a game's treasure hunting california fast-travel option. Booting up from standby treasure hunting california should be generally much faster, too.

You'll also treasure hunting california have more treasure hunting california control over how treasure hunting california you install and remove games, meaning you treasure hunting california could just treasure hunting california install a game's multiplayer mode rather than treasure hunting california the full block of data. This treasure hunting california will allow for launch treasure hunting california of treasure hunting california direct treasure hunting california gameplay, allowing players treasure hunting california to jump straight into aspects of different games treasure hunting california (such as match-making, continue treasure hunting california save game treasure hunting california etc) without having treasure hunting california to boot up the full game.

This means you treasure hunting california could be able to jump into Overwatch match-making, for example, treasure hunting california straight treasure hunting california from your home screen and would prevent the treasure hunting california need to take steps such as treasure hunting california booting up an treasure hunting california entire treasure hunting california game and treasure hunting california selecting treasure hunting california particular games modes. treasure hunting california It treasure hunting california would also make it easier for players to quickly jump treasure hunting california between treasure hunting california the games they treasure hunting california have installed.

As for expandable storage, Sony treasure hunting california appears to treasure hunting california be allowing for off-the-shelf NVMe treasure hunting california PC treasure hunting california drives, rather than proprietary treasure hunting california storage treasure hunting california systems that Xbox will primarily be relying on. However, there treasure hunting california aren't treasure hunting california many drives on the treasure hunting california market right now that use the PCIe 4.0 treasure hunting california interface required – treasure hunting california they need to be treasure hunting california capable of at least a treasure hunting california 5.5GB/s transfer speed.

"NVMe PC drives will work treasure hunting california in treasure hunting california PlayStation treasure hunting california 5," said Cerny. "The only problem is that treasure hunting california PC technology is significantly behind PS5. It'll take some treasure hunting california time for the treasure hunting california newer, PCIe treasure hunting california 4.0-based drives with the bandwidth required to treasure hunting california match Sony's treasure hunting california spec to hit treasure hunting california the market." 

PS4 games on treasure hunting california the PS5 will work just treasure hunting california fine if treasure hunting california saved to a regular HDD, however, treasure hunting california so you treasure hunting california won't need to treasure hunting california tap into that precious SSD space unnecessarily.

A treasure hunting california custom processor and GPU – what treasure hunting california that means for backwards compatibility
We were treasure hunting california already treasure hunting california aware that Sony will be treasure hunting california using AMD's Zen 2 CPU treasure hunting california processor tech, with eight treasure hunting california cores treasure hunting california and 16 treasure hunting california threads. The treasure hunting california reveal stream, however, treasure hunting california also treasure hunting california revealed that the treasure hunting california PS5 will be delivering 3.5GHz treasure hunting california frequencies – so, the PlayStation 5 would be treasure hunting california running 8x Zen treasure hunting california 2 treasure hunting california Cores at 3.5GHz treasure hunting california (at variable frequencies) over the PS4's 8x treasure hunting california Jaguar Cores at 1.6GHz. That's treasure hunting california a huge jump in performance.

Move treasure hunting california over to the treasure hunting california GPU, and treasure hunting california you're treasure hunting california looking at the AMD RDNA treasure hunting california 2 GPU, itself customized. It makes use treasure hunting california of 36 treasure hunting california compute units capped at treasure hunting california 2.23GHz. A compute treasure hunting california performance peak of treasure hunting california 10.28TF was treasure hunting california stated.

What's treasure hunting california smart treasure hunting california is that the treasure hunting california combination makes it simple for treasure hunting california the treasure hunting california PS5 to easily handle treasure hunting california PS4 treasure hunting california backwards compatibility – through treasure hunting california GPU architecture rather than hours treasure hunting california of coding. treasure hunting california Almost all of treasure hunting california the top 100 PS4 games will treasure hunting california be fully treasure hunting california compatible at launch. PS4 games will be supported natively on treasure hunting california the GPU silicon, but treasure hunting california here the GPU seems to treasure hunting california be emulating PS4 and treasure hunting california PS4 treasure hunting california Pro graphics chips, treasure hunting california which is a strange solution, treasure hunting california and not treasure hunting california as interesting as Xbox Series X's method, which will treasure hunting california also be capable of treasure hunting california upscaling previous treasure hunting california Xbox generation treasure hunting california games and adding HDR to previously HDR-less titles.

Tempest 3D audio tech
Perhaps the biggest reveal treasure hunting california of treasure hunting california the day treasure hunting california was the 3D audio support, treasure hunting california thanks treasure hunting california to the new Tempest Engine. treasure hunting california It's an incredibly treasure hunting california powerful system: if the PSVR can support "50 pretty decent sound treasure hunting california sources," according to treasure hunting california Cerny – treasure hunting california with the PSVR's distinct audio system being treasure hunting california one of the more complex audio systems treasure hunting california in treasure hunting california gaming at the moment treasure hunting california – the PS5's Tempest Engine can treasure hunting california support hundreds.

The treasure hunting california example Cerny used treasure hunting california described it in terms of rainfall. treasure hunting california Today, the treasure hunting california sound of rain in a game is a single treasure hunting california audio treasure hunting california track, treasure hunting california but treasure hunting california the treasure hunting california PS5 treasure hunting california would theoretically treasure hunting california be capable of letting you hear treasure hunting california individual raindrops, treasure hunting california in relation to where treasure hunting california the player character is.

"Where we ended up treasure hunting california is a treasure hunting california unit with treasure hunting california roughly the treasure hunting california same treasure hunting california SIMD (single instruction, multiple treasure hunting california data) power treasure hunting california and bandwidth as all eight Jaguar cores treasure hunting california in treasure hunting california the PS4 treasure hunting california combined," said Cerny.

"If we were to use the treasure hunting california same algorithms as treasure hunting california PSVR, that's enough for something like five thousand treasure hunting california sound sources – but of course we want treasure hunting california to use more complex algorithms, treasure hunting california and we don't need anything like treasure hunting california that number of sounds."

Perhaps best treasure hunting california of all is the way treasure hunting california you'll get treasure hunting california to experience this – treasure hunting california even a lowly treasure hunting california pair of headphones treasure hunting california at launch will be able to take advantage of treasure hunting california the sense of presence and directionality Sony is promising treasure hunting california here, with the company also committing to later treasure hunting california support multi-speaker surround systems with the treasure hunting california tech.

But treasure hunting california this treasure hunting california is an treasure hunting california ongoing treasure hunting california project for Sony. To treasure hunting california accurately treasure hunting california model surround data positioning, treasure hunting california Sony needs treasure hunting california to create a Head-related Transfer Function, or HRFT, treasure hunting california map. Essentially, that's treasure hunting california a distinct treasure hunting california algorithm that works best treasure hunting california if the treasure hunting california system knows the precise shape of your treasure hunting california ears.

"Maybe you'll be sending us a photo treasure hunting california of treasure hunting california your treasure hunting california ear, treasure hunting california and we'll treasure hunting california use a treasure hunting california neural treasure hunting california network to treasure hunting california pick the closest HRTF in our library," Cerny teased. treasure hunting california "Maybe treasure hunting california you'll be treasure hunting california sending treasure hunting california us a video of your ears and treasure hunting california your head, and we'll make treasure hunting california a 3D treasure hunting california model of them treasure hunting california and treasure hunting california synthesize the HRTF. Maybe you'll play an treasure hunting california audio game treasure hunting california to tune your HRTF, we'll treasure hunting california be treasure hunting california subtly changing treasure hunting california it as you play, and home treasure hunting california in on treasure hunting california the treasure hunting california HRTF treasure hunting california that gives treasure hunting california you the highest score, treasure hunting california meaning that treasure hunting california it matches treasure hunting california you treasure hunting california the best.

"This is a treasure hunting california journey we'll all be treasure hunting california taking together over the next few years. treasure hunting california Ultimately, treasure hunting california we're committed to enabling everyone treasure hunting california to experience that next level of treasure hunting california realism."

There's treasure hunting california still been no official treasure hunting california PS5 design reveal, treasure hunting california but the reveal treasure hunting california of the DualSense PS5 controller treasure hunting california has given treasure hunting california us treasure hunting california a fairly good idea of what we treasure hunting california can treasure hunting california expect treasure hunting california the next-gen treasure hunting california console to look like (we've even created treasure hunting california our own PS5 treasure hunting california render, which you can treasure hunting california see above, based on what we know so treasure hunting california far).

While we're treasure hunting california mostly dealing treasure hunting california with speculation, we can treasure hunting california assume that the PS5 console's design treasure hunting california will treasure hunting california match (or at least be similar treasure hunting california to) that of its controller. treasure hunting california To date, PlayStation controllers have treasure hunting california always matched their console counterparts – it would be odd treasure hunting california for this not to be treasure hunting california the case.

And, what's immediately treasure hunting california striking about the DualSense treasure hunting california controller is its new design; and, in particular, its treasure hunting california two-tone white and black treasure hunting california color scheme. This suggests that we could treasure hunting california see a two-tone white treasure hunting california and black treasure hunting california PlayStation 5 treasure hunting california console, treasure hunting california similar to treasure hunting california the controller, with the treasure hunting california console itself treasure hunting california boasting a primarily white design with black treasure hunting california lining or sections. 

Not treasure hunting california only is the DualSense controller's treasure hunting california color scheme different treasure hunting california from what we've seen in previous PlayStation gamepads, but treasure hunting california its overall shape and design is also treasure hunting california a treasure hunting california huge departure. 

Sony has treasure hunting california gone futuristic with the DualSense's design. And, while we know treasure hunting california that the PS5 treasure hunting california won't look treasure hunting california anything like the dev kits we've treasure hunting california seen treasure hunting california so far, the alien-futuristic design may treasure hunting california be treasure hunting california in the right vein. The controller is white treasure hunting california (as we've discussed) but looks pretty simple and sleek. treasure hunting california With a boomerang-like rounded shape, no treasure hunting california definition in the button colors, and a blue light treasure hunting california on either treasure hunting california side of the touchpad, it looks like Sony is treasure hunting california aiming treasure hunting california for a treasure hunting california minimalistic, treasure hunting california futuristic design for the PS5. 

As we pointed out treasure hunting california with treasure hunting california the treasure hunting california color scheme, PlayStation controllers often match their counterpart treasure hunting california consoles, so we treasure hunting california can expect a treasure hunting california similar minimalist design treasure hunting california for the PS5 treasure hunting california – likely with blue lighting, treasure hunting california slightly rounded edges and little definition when it treasure hunting california comes to buttons and ports. 

PS5 design render

However, all of this treasure hunting california is treasure hunting california mere speculation and we won't know for sure treasure hunting california until Sony official unveils treasure hunting california the treasure hunting california PS5 design. We're expecting Sony treasure hunting california to host another PS5 reveal around June treasure hunting california or July to reveal the console's price and treasure hunting california design - similarly to how treasure hunting california it did with treasure hunting california the PS4.

While we may treasure hunting california not treasure hunting california know exactly what the PS5 will treasure hunting california look like, treasure hunting california Sony did reveal the PS5's official logo at treasure hunting california CES 2020. treasure hunting california It's treasure hunting california essentially just the treasure hunting california PlayStation 4 logo with a treasure hunting california '5' replacing the treasure hunting california '4'.

But Sony PlayStation president, Jim treasure hunting california Ryan, did tease treasure hunting california during Sony's treasure hunting california CES keynote treasure hunting california that “there’s plenty to share about the PS5 in treasure hunting california the months ahead. And we treasure hunting california look forward treasure hunting california to sharing more details, treasure hunting california including the content that will treasure hunting california showcase treasure hunting california the platform and the future of gaming”.

PS5 DualSense Controller

The PS5 will come treasure hunting california with a new gamepad, one treasure hunting california that treasure hunting california Sony is dubbing the DualSense treasure hunting california PS5 treasure hunting california controller, not the DualShock 5, like you'd expect. treasure hunting california Also a departure is treasure hunting california the black-and-white color scheme that is bold – and treasure hunting california likely to be divisive.

The treasure hunting california two-tone PS5 controller color scheme extends to the four face treasure hunting california buttons, which still consist of Triangle, Circle, treasure hunting california Square and Cross (or X), but they're treasure hunting california devoid of treasure hunting california color. There is treasure hunting california a treasure hunting california pop of color around the side of treasure hunting california the central touchpad, as the PS4 Lightbar has moved treasure hunting california from the top of the gamepad treasure hunting california on the PS5.

The treasure hunting california PS5 controller treasure hunting california includes treasure hunting california haptic feedback in the L2 and treasure hunting california R2 shoulder buttons that are going treasure hunting california to be adaptive. treasure hunting california Sony explains that these adaptive triggers are treasure hunting california important to let players treasure hunting california feel the treasure hunting california tension of their actions, treasure hunting california like drawing a bow treasure hunting california to shoot treasure hunting california an treasure hunting california arrow. treasure hunting california This will let developers program the resistance of treasure hunting california the triggers treasure hunting california to treasure hunting california simulate actions treasure hunting california more accurately.

The DualSense will include a microphone treasure hunting california inside of the treasure hunting california controller, allowing gamers to ditch treasure hunting california their headset treasure hunting california to treasure hunting california communicate with friends. And the treasure hunting california 'Share' button is treasure hunting california dead. Long live the 'Create' button. treasure hunting california That's what Sony is calling the the button that's treasure hunting california in treasure hunting california the same treasure hunting california spot and still intended for gameplay treasure hunting california content treasure hunting california to share with the world. Sony is teasing more treasure hunting california details about this button ahead of the treasure hunting california console launch.

PS5: what treasure hunting california will I be playing?

The Last of Us 2

The majority of treasure hunting california the PS4 library, including treasure hunting california PSVR games, will treasure hunting california be supported by the PS5; treasure hunting california that treasure hunting california much is known. treasure hunting california But we're now hearing more about confirmed treasure hunting california – and rumored – PS5 games.

At treasure hunting california this point, any first-party PS4 treasure hunting california game treasure hunting california in the pipeline – from Ghost of Tsushima to treasure hunting california The Last of Us 2, treasure hunting california would be prime candidates for PS5 cross-gen upgrades. We've treasure hunting california also heard treasure hunting california enough chatter treasure hunting california around a treasure hunting california Horizon Zero Dawn sequel and new God of War game treasure hunting california to treasure hunting california assume we'll be seeing both land on the treasure hunting california PS5 console. 

And treasure hunting california while treasure hunting california we don't know much about PS5 treasure hunting california exclusives, we do know Sony will treasure hunting california continue treasure hunting california to focus on "strong narrative-driven, single-player treasure hunting california games" with the treasure hunting california PS5.

But what about third-party titles? We've treasure hunting california had confirmation that treasure hunting california Gearbox's new IP Godfall treasure hunting california is coming exclusively to PS5, as treasure hunting california is treasure hunting california a treasure hunting california title from Bluepoint Studios that's rumored to be treasure hunting california a Demon's Souls remake. We will treasure hunting california also see treasure hunting california a remake of THQ treasure hunting california Nordic's treasure hunting california cult classic Gothic, Gollum, treasure hunting california WRC 9, Dying Light treasure hunting california 2 and Outriders land on treasure hunting california PS5. In addition, Ubisoft has confirmed that Watch Dogs: treasure hunting california Legion, treasure hunting california Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Gods and treasure hunting california Monsters are all treasure hunting california coming to Xbox Series treasure hunting california X and PlayStation treasure hunting california 5 - with treasure hunting california a new Assassin's Creed and Far treasure hunting california Cry also rumored to be treasure hunting california coming to the platforms. treasure hunting california However, Ubisoft has said that it treasure hunting california could delay these games if the next-gen treasure hunting california consoles treasure hunting california don't make their launch window. treasure hunting california We also treasure hunting california know Rainbow treasure hunting california Six Siege treasure hunting california will treasure hunting california be treasure hunting california available on PS5 and Xbox Series X from treasure hunting california launch. 

It's treasure hunting california likely that we'll see treasure hunting california the likes treasure hunting california of treasure hunting california Starfield and treasure hunting california The Elder Scrolls 6 coming to PS5 and treasure hunting california Xbox treasure hunting california Series X, too.

In treasure hunting california addition, not only treasure hunting california has treasure hunting california EA has said treasure hunting california that Battlefield 6 treasure hunting california will treasure hunting california be treasure hunting california coming to Xbox Series X and PS5, but the treasure hunting california company has sung treasure hunting california the treasure hunting california praises of the treasure hunting california incoming next-generation machines during an investor call.

"The power of treasure hunting california the new consoles is gonna be substantially greater treasure hunting california than treasure hunting california existing consoles," said EA CFO treasure hunting california Blake Jorgensen.

"We can do a lot more treasure hunting california [with PS5 and treasure hunting california Xbox Series treasure hunting california X]. Things treasure hunting california we’re doing will blow people’s minds."

While treasure hunting california this is a good start, we're expecting plenty more third-party treasure hunting california games to be announced treasure hunting california in the coming treasure hunting california months. 

According to treasure hunting california a survey treasure hunting california by GDC, when it comes to treasure hunting california developer treasure hunting california interest it seems the PS5 is already beating Xbox Series X – and the Nintendo treasure hunting california Switch.

That's according to GDC's State of the treasure hunting california Game Industry 2020 survey, which treasure hunting california surveyed 4,000 game developers treasure hunting california on a variety treasure hunting california of industry treasure hunting california topics ahead of GDC 2020 in March. treasure hunting california And, of treasure hunting california course, the next-gen treasure hunting california consoles were treasure hunting california top of the agenda.

When treasure hunting california asked which platform treasure hunting california they planned to launch their next project treasure hunting california on, 23% of those surveyed said the PlayStation 5, while treasure hunting california 17% said treasure hunting california the Xbox Series X and 19% said the treasure hunting california Nintendo Switch .

When it comes treasure hunting california to treasure hunting california the treasure hunting california platform devs are most treasure hunting california intrigued by, the PS5 treasure hunting california once treasure hunting california again treasure hunting california leads the treasure hunting california pack when it comes to consoles, with 38%, treasure hunting california but the Switch only treasure hunting california just behind on 37%. Again, the Xbox Series X treasure hunting california is seriously lagging behind, piquing the treasure hunting california interest of just 25% of devs. 

The treasure hunting california survey also revealed that 10% treasure hunting california of developers treasure hunting california are treasure hunting california currently treasure hunting california working on a treasure hunting california game for the treasure hunting california next-gen consoles.

However, while we know treasure hunting california of a treasure hunting california few treasure hunting california third-party games in treasure hunting california the treasure hunting california pipeline for the treasure hunting california PS5, there's treasure hunting california still no confirmation on treasure hunting california what the PS5's launch treasure hunting california titles will be, but we're expecting first-party games treasure hunting california to treasure hunting california take the lead.

In addition, treasure hunting california Sony has confirmed that treasure hunting california the treasure hunting california PS5 will prioritize AAA games over indie games in treasure hunting california an effort treasure hunting california to focus treasure hunting california on "serious treasure hunting california gamers".

What about treasure hunting california a treasure hunting california PS5 Pro?

Rumors have cropped up suggesting that treasure hunting california Sony will treasure hunting california double down by treasure hunting california launching the PlayStation 5 Pro at the treasure hunting california same time treasure hunting california as its base-model PS5.

Spotted by Wccftech, noted treasure hunting california Japanese games treasure hunting california journalist Zenji Nishikawa made the claim treasure hunting california in a video on his YouTube treasure hunting california channel, and while that kind treasure hunting california of thing treasure hunting california wouldn't normally be treasure hunting california considered a rock-solid lead, treasure hunting california Nishikawa has been treasure hunting california proven correct in the past with treasure hunting california his predictions about the treasure hunting california PS4 Pro treasure hunting california and Switch treasure hunting california Lite.

According to Nishikawa, the PS5 treasure hunting california Pro will cost around $100-$150 treasure hunting california more than the basic PS5 console. treasure hunting california The report states that Sony is treasure hunting california taking this approach because treasure hunting california it has "acknowledged the interest in a high-end model treasure hunting california and wants to treasure hunting california give players what they want right from treasure hunting california the beginning of the generation".

NeoGaf user FXVeteran treasure hunting california (via TweakTown) has since treasure hunting california added fuel to the fire treasure hunting california by claiming Sony plans to release two PlayStation 5 models treasure hunting california at the same time: a treasure hunting california PS5 Pro and a PS5, treasure hunting california with treasure hunting california the PS5 Pro being "top of the line" treasure hunting california to treasure hunting california compete with treasure hunting california the Xbox Series X's potential treasure hunting california iteratively more powerful versions. 

While a PlayStation 5 Pro is treasure hunting california likely on the treasure hunting california cards, we don't think treasure hunting california it'll release at the treasure hunting california same time treasure hunting california as the regular PS5. In our opinion, treasure hunting california it's treasure hunting california more treasure hunting california likely that Sony will wait around treasure hunting california three years treasure hunting california (2023) treasure hunting california before treasure hunting california giving the console treasure hunting california an upgrade - treasure hunting california usually this happens mid-cycle treasure hunting california and the PS5 lifecycle treasure hunting california is estimated to treasure hunting california be around six to seven years.
