Sony announced that PS5 was going to launch on Christmas 2020. Microsoft did the same with Xbox Series X, which will arrive on November 26, 2020, and where Microsoft seems to be quite advanced with the manufacture of the console and its features. However, Sony does not stop accumulating delays for PS5 release and there are more and more doubts about the ps5 price, ps5 controller, and ps5 console.
And those doubts have now been triggered after, in the last hours, Sony has removed from the official website the data that indicated the official launch date of the console. Until a few days ago, when entering the website, ” For sale at the end of 2020 ” appeared. However, since yesterday, now nothing appears when entering the web.
Although customers are eagerly waiting for the battle of specs: PS5 vs Xbox Series X.
Will Sony announce a PS5 delay?
There have been many rumors about console delays caused mainly by temperature problems with the design they had chosen. A fact that supports this theory is that Sony has not yet shown the console despite having shown the DualSense Wireless controller more than a month ago.
The fact that Sony has removed the date could indicate that they are preparing to delay PS5. On previous occasions, this has also happened with the launch of new games, which have removed the expected launch date on the web to announce a delay a few days later.
Sony was to present the first PS5 games today at an online event, but the company has delayed it because of everything that is happening in the United States. It is very possible that in that event they also announced the possible delay of the console, but for now, we will have to wait a few days to see if the delay is confirmed or not.
A month and a half ago, it was leaked that Sony would have told assemblers to manufacture 5 or 6 million units for the console’s first fiscal year, which ends in March 2021, and there would be limited stock of the console in the first months. For this reason, it seems that the strategy of launching it, even with limited units, might not come to fruition and in reality, we could be facing a possible launch in March. Rumors indicated that the console was going to start manufacturing this month.
PS5 SSD has forced rewrite Unreal Engine 5
There is a lot of expectation with the new consoles, and statements like those of Epic do nothing more than make our teeth even longer. The company has claimed that they had to redesign the Unreal Engine 5 to take advantage of the PS5’s SSD, which will reach speeds of 5.5 GB / s. Thanks to this, denser and more detailed environments can be created, changing the way games have been designed until now with small corridors to give the console time to load elements without entering load times.
