Everyone was waiting to see some details or at least a small reveal at CES 2020, and while we didn’t get to see the next-gen console in its glory, Sony did unveil its logo.
It’s not surprising to see the only change in the logo was the 5 that replaced the 4. Don’t get us wrong, it isn’t an ugly logo, but we wanted to see a little more than just a logo. Maybe Sony has anticipated fans will go crazy if they don’t throw us a bone, so they did reveal some exciting details about their incoming console.
Sony Confirms Essential Specs for the PlayStation 5
Some of the PS5 specs have finally been revealed, but we already speculated Sony would add 3D audio support and an SSD hard drive. However, it’s great to know they’re confirming it.
We were really hoping to see the PS5 at CES 2020 but Sony PlayStation President Jim Ryan has ended his press conference at CES 2020 teasing that “there’s plenty to share about the PS5 in the months ahead. And we look forward to sharing more details, including the content that will showcase the platform and the future of gaming.” He also mentioned that the console will be able to “deliver unique experiences with unprecedented speed.”
Surely Sony has some tricks up its sleeve. They confirmed that the release date for the PS5 will be Holiday 2020.
The Design Revealed at the AMD CES Keynote Was Not of the Official/Final Xbox Series X Design
Meanwhile, at the AMD CES keynote, we saw short footage of a box that many thought to be the Xbox Series X backside. People began speculating around the ports seen in that model since it revealed two HDMI ports, two USB-C ports, an Ethernet port, optical out, a two-pin connector and on the front, there were also USB ports. Here’s how it looked:
However, AMD stated that the 3D model they revealed was not the official design of the product: “The Xbox Series X imagery used during the AMD CES press conference was not sourced from Microsoft and does not accurately represent the design for features of the upcoming console,” said AMD.
Microsoft also confirmed a few things – the launch will be in time for holiday 2020, and we should see the “largest and most creatively diverse lineup of Xbox exclusive games in our history” since all 15 Xbox Game Studios are working to develop good content.
