Sony will play host to its biggest gaming event to date at its annual conference, Sony Computer Entertainment’s annual E3, on Wednesday, March 12, as it prepares to launch the PlayStation 5 Pro.
“It’s a milestone in gaming for all of us,” Sony boss Shuhei Yoshida said at the show, which also takes place in Los Angeles.
“The PlayStation 5 is the first time ever a console that offers true gaming performance, with full support for the new DualShock 4 controller, will be able to run at 1080p with 4K resolution at 60 frames per second.”
We’re delighted that this milestone is the culmination of a long and rigorous journey and we can finally celebrate our 50th anniversary.
We’re proud of what we have built together over the years, and are truly honoured to be a part of the next generation of gaming.
“Sony also said that the PlayStation 4 Pro, the new version of the PS4 console that comes with a larger, more powerful GPU, will launch later this year.”
The PlayStation 4 is also launching in Europe at the end of this month, with Japan set to launch a few months later. “
Its dual-core processor, four-core GPU and 4K graphics will give users the ability to play next-generation games at resolutions up to 4K.”
The PlayStation 4 is also launching in Europe at the end of this month, with Japan set to launch a few months later.
The PS4 will cost £449 ($499), £399 ($499) and £299 ($399).
The Xbox One S, which is now also the official Xbox console, will cost $499 ($599) and will come in black, gold, silver and red.
The PS5 is Sony’s latest gaming console, and it follows the launch of the PlayStation 3, which launched in October 2009, and the Xbox 360, which was released in November 2004.
It was announced at E3 in 2007 that the PS5 Pro would be a bigger console, but it hasn’t launched, and is currently being sold in Japan, France and the US.
The new PS5, however, is more powerful than the previous generation.
Its four cores are now up to 12 times as powerful, and up to double the speed of the Xbox One, according to the official PlayStation blog.
“With 4K gaming, gamers will have the opportunity to experience the worlds largest displays at 60Hz with 4x the performance of 1080p,” the blog said.
“As always, the PS 5 Pro is designed to offer incredible performance with a premium gaming experience, and that includes 1080p gaming at 60fps.”
The PS 5 will be available for pre-order starting at £599 ($649) and retailing for $799 ($799).
