PS5 Specs Have Been Leaked Which Reveal Console Will Support 8K Gaming And You Can Play PS4 Titles

PlayStation 5 specs have been leaked which reveal that the new console could allow 8K gaming and let you play all your old PS4 games when it launches later on this year. 

Last week, an official listing was mistakenly (or so we think) published by US online retailer GameStop which revealed the machine’s high-end specs.

The listing gave away previously unknown details about the new console ahead of its launch in time for Christmas but has now been taken down according to a report by Tom’s Guide.

Japanese tech Sony announced the PS5 details of its new revamped controller late last year.

Since then, little information has been shared about the console besides its vague “Holiday 2020” release date – which is likely to mean some time in October or November.

According to the listing that was released, the console is expected to be powered by a bespoke 8-core AMD chipset.

Based off of previous reports, it has been suggested that this gaming machine is going to be twice as powerful as the PS4.

As well as this information on the listing, it also shared that the PS% will come with 3D Audio – this is a new technology will allow players to immerse themselves into the game a whole new way as sounds come from above, behind and around the sides.

One of the main sell factors for gamers of this latest console is the fact that it will people to play old PS4 games.

So far, this “backwards compatibility” feature has yet to be confirmed by Sony.

However, there are rumours that suggest later this month we will get a greater look at the PS5 in all its glory.

It has yet to be confirmed by Sony the exact date or price of the console but it is assumed that it will a figure will be announced when its competitor – Microsoft’s Xbox Series X – has been confirmed.

It has been tipped that at the launch event, people will be able to make preorders on the same day.
