  • This comes after Microsoft dropped a bunch of details about the Xbox Series X
  • Just after Microsoft dropped a bunch of details about the Xbox Series X, Sony looks ready to showcase the PlayStation 5.

    The company is set to show a “deep dive” into their next-gen console with lead system architect Mark Cerny, which will reveal “how it will shape the future of games”.

    The presentation will be live on the PlayStation blog at 4pm GMT/9am PT on Wednesday 18th March.

    Sony has revealed very little details about the PlayStation 5 so far, with only a logo shown at CES 2020 earlier this year.

    The console is confirmed to support PS4 backwards compatibility and 8K graphics.

    It will also feature 3D audio sound, adaptive triggers, an ultra high speed SSD, real-time ray tracing and ultra HD blu-ray functionality.

    It's likely this "deep dive" will be similar to Microsoft's recent dump of console specifications, with a potential look at the console itself if we're lucky.

    The new details could also clear up whether it'll directly compete with Microsoft and some of their Xbox Series X features - including the Smart Delivery system.

    Sony's PlayStation 5 is currently scheduled to be released in holiday 2020.
