PlayStation 5 will launch on schedule
A couple of days ago, In an interview with the media, Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO, Jim Ryan, said that the current pandemic will not force the PS5 sale to be delayed.
Jim Ryan said, “We are still going well. We will be on sale worldwide this Christmas. We look forward to the next generation, and we hope that the game field will also look forward to it.”
In addition, Jim Ryan said that although there may be a partial out-of-stock situation in the PS5 initial release period. This will not be any different from the previous situation when any new console is released.
As for the price of the PlayStation 5, we still do not have any official information on that. However, Jim Ryan, Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) President and CEO recently said that PS5 pricing will reflect the best value of the console. However, this does not been that it will be “cheap” but it means it will offer good value for money. The depth, design, quality, price, and platform of the game collection will be worth the money. Simply put, the PS5 may not be cheap, but it will definitely be worth the money.
According to media reports, Sony has told PS4 game developers that any new games submitted for authentication must be compatible with PS5 consoles. This rule will begin on July 13. This means that after mid-July, all PS4 games (for testing) received by Sony will be compatible with PS5 and will also run on PS5. Sony recently released a developer document on the internal partner’s official website. The document details what developers must review to claim that their games have passed PS5 hardware compatibility testing. This option was added to the new version of the PS4 software development kit at the end of April this year. Sony told developers that it will contact them separately for details on how to test PS5 compatibility.
