The presentation of the first PS5 data was not expected among the typical console presentations. Mark Cerny was invited to Wired to explain some of the main strokes of the system, highlighting its commitment to the AMD Ryzen third-generation eight-core chip, the ability to support 8K graphics, the commitment to SSD memory or backward compatibility. Why did he show up like that? Kotaku journalist Jason Schreier says that Sony has preferred to avoid leaks by developers.
As we knew a few days ago, the Japanese firm has begun sending development kits to different companies, so the leaks would increase in the coming weeks. As Schreier explained in his Twitter account, “if you wonder why Sony randomly dropped the first PS5 data last week, one reason is that there are a lot of studies that are accessing development kits in April. now, so they decided to take it off. “
Sony has not specified when it will present new details of its next console. It will be waiting to hear news from the company after PlayStation in the future.
As I said on today's Kotaku Splitscreen – if you're wondering why Sony randomly dropped PS5 news last week, one reason is that (I hear) a bunch of third-party studios got/are getting dev kits this month. Sony knew info would start leaking now. So they beat everyone to it
