Sony hints that PS5 could be revealed THIS month in plot to beat Xbox Series X


GAMERS may finally get their first look at the hotly-anticipated PlayStation 5 this month.

Electronics giant Sony has hinted it’s gearing up to show off the console for the first time ahead of its launch later this year.

The PS5 was officially announced last year by the Japanese firm and later scheduled for a Christmas 2020 release.

However, Sony has yet to show fans the console’s design, leaving gamers to rely on leaks and speculation for clues as to what it looks like.

PlayStation devotees may not have to wait much longer for a gander, however, if Sony’s latest tease is to be believed.

The company revealed this week that it’s following the same release timeline as that of its previous consoles.

In a recent Sony earnings call, Hiroki Totoki said that Sony would make announcements about the PS5 “when the time is right.”

“It’s very difficult to really discuss this timing-wise, but as of today, we will provide the guidance at a time period, which is comparable to the past,” he said, as reported by financial site MotleyFool.

“So we will not change the time schedule.”

Sony also kept tight-lipped about its last console, the PS4, until it released a flurry of information the February before it released.

That could mean we hear news and finally see photos of the PS5 within the next few weeks.

The Sun has reached out to PlayStation for comment.

The PS5 will battle it out with Microsoft’s new console, the Xbox Series X, to be crowned the console champion of the world.

Both announced last year, the PS5 and Series X are the first major consoles in seven years from Sony and Microsoft.

They’ve been given vague “Holidays 2020” release dates. Both are expected to cost somewhere in the region of 500.

Microsoft confirmed in December that its new console would be named the Xbox Series X.

The contraption will apparently run games at 4K resolution – double that of HD – with the possibility of running 8K.

It will also process games faster so as to “eliminate” loading times. A new Halo title will launch with the console.

Sony got in a bit before Microsoft, revealing details of its PS5 console in October.

Loading up a game on the PlayStation 5 will be ten times faster than on PS4, according to the company.

We’re expecting new God of War and Horizon: Zero Dawn titles to launch with the console.
