A broken hero of the Hollywood scene....

IT'S BEEN 6 years since the PS4 and X Box One were released for what is generally considered the 8th generation of video game consoles.

Well, get ready for gen 9 as Sony announced the PS5 a couple of weeks ago.  I never bought into gen 8 because I didn't think the graphics were all that much better then gen7.  I happily still play the Xbox 360, particularly one of the greatest stand-alone games ever made, HALO: REACH.

But looking at these stats, it might be time for a change.....

"Earlier this year, Sony revealed the DualSense PS5 controller, which includes a slew of impressive-sounding features like haptic feedback, adaptive triggers and a built-in mic. What really stands out about the DualSense controller, though, is its radically different look and space-age black-and-white color scheme, and it turns out the PS5 design has a similar look this marks a significant departure from its predecessors.

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

When it comes to other PS5 features, we know the next-gen console will have ray-tracing, a super-fast SSD, a built-in 4K Blu-ray player and will be backwards compatible with a huge swathe of the PS4's game catalogue. It may even have voice assistant capabilities to tell you how long it will take to beat levels. So far, then, the PS5 is living up to the hype, but it's the games that'll make all the difference."
----------------------------

Back-ward compatibility is a massive selling point, with the bluray being a nice bonus.  Of course, if the thing is $500, then 360 here I come.

Apparently this announcement came as something as a shock to the industry, so it will be interesting if Microsoft will try to answer, or simply leave the market altogether (Sony outsells Microsoft by more then 2 to 1).
