Ladies and gentlemen, gamers of all ages, the moment you’ve been waiting for is finally here. That’s right, Sony’s upcoming new PS5 video game console is finally available for preorder! The novel coronavirus definitely delayed Sony’s PlayStation 5 plans, and we were all expecting an official reveal back in February. That didn’t happen, needless to say, but we knew Sony would get around to it eventually. Then we were all surprised last month when Sony used its big PS5 gameplay event to reveal the console’s new design. It’s definitely polarizing, but the important thing is obviously what’s inside that towering beast of a video game console.
The Sony PS5 features next-generation specs that blow current consoles out of the water. It has a custom-built AMD Zen 2-based CPU with an octa-core configuration that maxes out at 3.5GHz. The custom GPU does a whopping 10.28 TFLOPs and there’s also 16GB of GDDR6 memory onboard. The custom 825GB SSD is also a huge highlight, achieving data transfer speeds that put most current-generation SSDs to shame.
Needless to say, the upcoming new PlayStation 5 console is an absolute beast. It’s also going to be in very high demand when it’s released ahead of the 2020 holiday season. Sadly, we’re also expecting supply to be very constrained due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. Long story short, that means you’re definitely going to have to preorder a PS5 if you want to guarantee that you get one this year. And wouldn’t you know it… PS5 preorders just went live on Amazon! The PlayStation 5 is $499.99, the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition costs $399.99, and both will be released on November 12. What are you waiting for?!
