As we get closer to the launch of the Playstation 5, we’ll be receiving more news on the console in the coming weeks and months. However, a picture on social media has people buzzing about what could be the new UI, along with some other interesting details.
Playstation 5 UI and Memory Leaks
A couple of days ago, a picture on 4chan received quite a lot of attention on the Internet, as a supposed worker at an anonymous game studio apparently had access to a PS5 devkit. That worker posted a picture of the devkit UI on 4chan:
It’s rather interesting to say the least, considering that it looks very similar to the Playstation 4 UI. However, does this mean that this will actually be the UI? There’s a good chance that it’s not, and there’s two reasons for that. One, this supposed leak may not actually be a real image (it is a leak, after all). Second, because this is supposedly a devkit, it could mean that it’s only an UI that developers will work with for now until the Playstation 5 actually launches.
Another interesting takeaway from this image is the memory storage on the top left of the image. If this image is indeed true, it looks like the Playstation 5 will be released with 1TB of storage. That would go along with an SSD that Sony says will feature a speedy SSD that should make loading times much quicker.
Other PS5 Leaks
This is just one of many supposed leaks that have come out over over the past few days. A couple of days ago, a leaker reported that a launch event is in the works for the Playstation 5 on February 5 in New York City. According to the leaker, Sony will reportedly reveal the console design, along with the UI, console specs, and other announcements related to the PS5.
According to that same leaker, the new console will launch in October 2020 at a price of $499 USD, and the Playstation 5 will only have one model available at launch. That would differ from Microsoft, who is rumored to have a cheaper version of the Xbox Series X available at launch.
Lastly, backwards compatibility will reportedly be a major part of the Playstation 5. Games from all five previous Playstation consoles can be played on the PS5, and gamers can easily transfer their PS4 games, as well as save files from those games, to the Playstation 5.
Just keep in mind though, that these are just supposed details at the moment, as Sony has not officially confirmed any of these claims at the moment. For more gaming news, be sure to keep checking out the SGO site.
