The PlayStation 5 (PS5) will be out soon and we are waiting in anticipation. Sony has announced that this great console will launch in the holiday season around November 2020. The PS5 will be taking over from the PS4 and it is expected to be a much more powerful console. The PS5 will launch in 2 variants; the fully digital console ( without Ultra HD Blu-ray compatible optical disc drive) and of course the one with HD blue ray disc drive. The console will render at 4k resolution (theoretically can render up to 8k and also be able to play most PS4 games as well as VR.

PLAYSTATION 5 CONTROLLER
The PS5 will have a new controller called DualSense. This controller is based on the dualshock controller but with new modifications; among which is an incorporated microphone. That is; the PS5 controller will have an inbuilt microphone so you do not need to connect ear piece or head set before you can communicate with other Players. It maintains most of the buttons on the PS4 dual shock 4 controller.
There is no official statement of price of the PS5 by Sony. Sony said the PS5 concentrated on value, so we expect it to be more expensive than the PS4. Remember that the PS5 will be coming in 2 variants; a fully digital (cheaper) edition and fully digital edition with Ultra Blu ray optical drive (costlier). We are predicting a price range of 400-700$.
