Well, here we go with all of the tech specs for the PlayStation 5 just after the release of the rival's info. Something that we all know was going to happen here and now we know it all. Even if this is one of the more lackluster presentations of it all. Take that as a warning for those looking to have the most exciting video showing off the PlayStation 5 in general, as the presentation is going to be rather boring for those that are not looking for how it will change the development cycle of things. You should just skip right along to the tech specs of it all instead of it all as we do not even have a look at what the PS5 will look like as of yet.
While it is not overly exciting, but we do have word that PlayStation 5 will be at least backward compatible for the most recent 100 titles in the PS4 library that fans are in love with. All of which at the launch of the system with the rest to come along the way. There is also word on how the audio of the system will be worked and aim for a more 3D audio form for all. Also the speed of how we will be able to load data, where the current standard for the PlayStation 4 takes upwards of 20 seconds to load 2GB and the PS5 will take a fraction of a second. Thus leading to the developer not needing to use the video game tropes to allow for the system to load in the background. Read that as no need for 30-second elevator rides in the middle of action.

While the numbers for the PlayStation 5 are a bit smaller than the Xbox Series X, do you think it is still going to be a formidable contender in the console arena? Do you like the fact that we will not be limited on the size of the expandable drives for storage? Will it still all come down to the exclusive titles we will have on the various system to help dictate how things will go? Let us all know down in the comments and then feel free to discuss it all. As more for the PlayStation 5 gets out there, we will update you here. Just be sure to keep coming back to see and hear all of that in the future.
