Some amazing visuals to be expected from the PS5 when it launches
With the passing of time, more and more hints come out for Sony’s PS5. The Playstation 5 is expected to be announced early next year. Everyone is curious about how the graphics will look in the next-gen console. Trust me they’ll be amazing.
Square Enix, the company behind many of your favorite Japanese styled games, has given us a glimpse of the absolute power the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett will have. This next gen console will be on par with most of the high-end gaming PCs that exist right now. Luminous Studio, Square Enix’s game engine, has released a next-gen tech demo, showing off what the PS5 will be capable of.
No this doesn’t mean that the demo is done on the PS5, it’s a Luminous Studio’s collab with NVIDIA. The video was powered by a single RTX 2080 Ti GPU, NVIDIA’s top notch gpu currently. However, the graphics displayed are something you can expect to get from the next-gen consoles. Specifically it tackles the Ray-Tracing technology that is the hype these days. Yes that’s right, the PS5 will be capable of running games with Ray-Tracing. That means some amazing visuals are on the way.
Ray-Tracing, in short, improves the lightning and shadows which are a major part of any game’s graphics. This in turn makes the graphics appear very appealing and realistic. The reason to watch that “Back Stage” video is to show off the technology and how it might look like on the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett.
Sony has filed a patent for a cloud-based console, as reported by SegmentNext. Apparently on August 29 a patent was filed for a mysterious cloud-based console that is to launch alongside the normal disk-operated Playstation 5.
However, this could be a move by Sony to compete with Microsoft. Microsoft have their disk-less Xbox One S, so Sony might be going cloud-based, just to flex.
Some more PS5 show offs include the loading times the next-gen console will have. As we all know, the PS5 will feature an SSD, which is significantly faster than a normal HDD. Due to the SSD, the loading times of the games saved on the SSD are significantly faster. Not only that, but the texture “pop ins” are also much more fluid, making the gameplay a better experience. The loading times will be pretty neat in games such as Dying Light 2 which will come out for PS5.

On top of that, the PS5 will support 8k resolution, whenever 8k televisions come out that is. How will they fit that, ray-tracing, SSD and everything else into a budget “appealing to the customers” is beyond me to understand. Let’s just hope they deliver their product as they are advertising it.
