    Never owned a PlayStation console, but if this has a decent price point, i might pick it up (provided it's backwards compatible). There are enough PS4 exclusives I want to justify picking up a used one, but I might hold off and see what this is first

    Yes, ray tracing can be used for sound fx, to the effect of how sound can be altered based on it bouncing off of different kinds of walls and such. You're thinking of just a light ray for lighting a scene. Think broader as just a simple ray, one point to another, then another, then another.

    Anybody else notice that the concept photos based on the leaked patent all resemble a bedpan?

    Meh in the past we used to be astonished about the graphics upgrade from Ps1 to ps2 to ps3 but now I think that graphics look all the same I mean would ps5 graphics look much better than ps4 compared to (Ps1 to ps2 upgrade)? highly doubt it. So this console will be like nowadays phone that even if they still work, you need to buy a new one to get security updates as for the ps5 it will be to be able to play newer games no more no less. It's the same as the new 8k TVs seriously you can't see the diffrence much compared to 4k.corporates sucking our money...

    Yeah similar opinion here... but anyway the biggest upgrade for me was from Sega Megadrive to PS1, I wasnt that much impressed with PS1 to PS2 because I had a dreamcast and some games like the 24h Le mans and a few others weren't that far away from the PS2 and back then I also heard M$ was making a more powerful console so I jumped from PS1 to Dreamcast and then to Xbox original, never bought the PS2, but a friend used to lent me his one but was mostly to play the MGS and GT, Xbox was far ahead in graphics even though came a bit later too... Also I always had PC and back in the PS2 era PC gaming was way more developed than before the PS1 era which there wasn't really gaming GPU's and PC's were super expensive, it probably cost my father the whole year of salary to buy one here...

    Anyway nowadays each gen will jump lower and lower as prices of hardware at least in the PC land are increasing instead of keep decreasing and performance gains are very little each gen, maybe after 2021 there will be another bigger jump with TSMC starting the 3D stacking production of chips which will probably be the future of chip making for quite some time since shrinking the transistor sizes aren't going to go much further and don't have the same room to upgrade while its way cheaper to make them in height and add more transistors per wafer...

    The PS3\X360 were a good jump from the old gen mostly for LCD, but not a big upgrade if used on CRT while PS4 and Xone was even less and only Xone X and PS4 Pro it kinda started to get good, but more expensive as they never did those mid-life console refresh that we have to go run buy a new model :(...

    And about the 8K TV, well in fact the one from samsung is worse in almost everything to like their 2018 Q9 Qled LCD TV, its just more expensive, but to enjoy 8K, 1st there isnt much content and 2nd it needs to be really LARGE or need to be too close from it to really see any big difference from a 4K model, 8K would only be a big upgrade for people with very little viewing distance available and really want a wall size TV, other than that 4K is totally perfect and even 4K for gaming it's still pretty bad since 4K native performance on PC with everything ultra is still $$$$€€€€ and some games never reach the 60 FPS :(.

    ps: Anyway congrats to M$ as they did a AMAZING job in making their Xbox One more like a PC able to play most of the known best games from the older Xbox consoles just like in PC we can play retro games, PS4 sadly was bad with no retro compatibility which is a stupid move, it should have played all the PS1\PS2\PS3 games :(

    Hopefully this means we'll get more information on the new Xbox soon.

    Right here on good ol' planet Earth!
    "Sony has made it official: its next-gen console is named the PlayStation 5 and will hit stores in time for Holiday 2020."

    ...And it will sell more than the Playstation 2? Nintendo may have quite a competition if they don't hurry with the higher-end Switch and make it appealing enough. Will the new Switch fare well like the Wii, or be set back like the GameCube? Only time will tell.

    Personally, I hope backwards compatibility of some form reaches the Switch. I mean games, not just hardware. I would hope that they don't tie it to Nintendo Switch Online like they did with NES and SNES games.

    But going back to the Playstation 5, what does this mean for the PS4? Will it be discarded shortly afterwards? What about games for that platform? Will they work on the PS5? You have to think about these things when a new console is introduced, because it may affect your dedication to the company. I'm not a Playstation owner myself, but I do wonder about things like Rock Band 4 - how will it work on the new console? Will customs be able to be added on there? Will it be easier or harder to hack?

    Yes, I was agreeing with you, I just wanted to add that the beefy chips were initially on the board, but as emulating them became easier over time, there wasn't any need to include them anymore. It was also a good cost-cutting measure, and it reduced the thermals and power consumption.

    They missed the chance to call it the PSV. /s

    I'm pretty sure it is backwards compatible. They would more likely just sell the console.

    Now I have nightmares of people breaking the triggers.

    No reason why console games can't give you a long list of options at this point.

    Even the Wii wasn't 100% compatible with everything the Gamecube had and it basically used an upgraded version of the same hardware.

    Ummmm. I was answering another users question. Sony specifically said Holiday 2020, and my answer to the users question was accurate. I'm not sure what you're trying to say or correct.

    They might want to show it off a bit before announcing a release date, lol. And e3 is still far off. Hopefully they'll at least show us what the thing looks like before then. Or pics leak.

    It just down-clocked the CPU and GPU to Gamecube specs, it was more akin to a compatibility layer. But yeah, if it didn't use PowerPC, never would have worked.
