How Much Is the PS5

The most concerned should be its price – How Much Is the PS5?

As you see above, PS5 has very good specs and powerful function. So, it should be expensive?

In fact, it is no more expensive than a regular desktop. The standard new PS5, coming with a 4K –Blu-ray drive only costs $499 while the PS5 Digital Edition goes for even cheaper $399 in comparison with PS4 Slim $299 and PS4 Pro $399.

Can PS4 Play with PS4

Although it haven’t yet officially confirmed but developers have confirmed themselves that both their games will both carry over your progress and allow PS4 and PS5 players to play together.

According to this article.

As for PS5’s backwards compatibility, it has been announced by Sony that 90% of PS4’s game can be played on PS5, but it’s unknown that whether this is applied to PS3 and even PS2.

How Much FPS Can PS5 Reach

If you have been fed up with low frame rates or frame rate drop of PS4/PS4 Pro in games for example, Justice 3, it’s a good news that PS5 supports up to 120 frame rate output meaning that you’ll have smoother gameplay experience and reduced input latency. Meanwhile, the resolution of new PS5 also reaches up to 1440p.

Should I Pre-order

Although I’m also excited about the launch titles of PS5, BUT I don’t recommend to pre-order this console because you should know that the first batch of console coming out from the factory may not function well. For example, when PS4 is launched, many of the first group of users faced deadly blue light on their consoles. So, I suggest don’t hurry, just wait several months when all the feedbacks from users get responded and glitches get solved.

Have gone through all the details, you can begin to preorder a new PS5 now!
