There's no doubt that 2020 will be remembered as a major milestone in video game history, for its the year that we trade up to the next generation of consoles - the PS5 and Xbox Series X.

The year will be filled with leaks and rumours until we finally get the holy grail of information from Sony and Microsoft - and they're certainly not slowing down.



A new leak has emerged revealing a potential release date, price and more about Sony's PlayStation 5.

Here's everything that has been revealed.


Reveal Date Leak

According to a 4chan post, it tells us about a reveal date that will show off the PS5.

The reveal is set for the 5th February 2020 at a PlayStation meeting to be hosted at the Sony Hall in New York City.

The post had this to say:


"The console design, controller, UI/home screen, certain features, console specs, talk from third parties/indie publishers, as well as announcements for PS5 exclusives will be shown."

"Buzz words for the console’s features include “little to no load times”, “blazing fast downloads”, “immersive controls”, “modular installs for games, download whatever”, “disc drive included”, and “download the games, or stream the games as an option” (we’re looking at you Stadia)"

The leaker also says that the PS5’s new slogan is “It’s time to play,” and that this will apply to the brand as a whole.

Release Date

The console will supposedly be released worldwide in October 2020.

Just in time for a lot of the major game launches such as COD 2020, meaning they will not have to worry about releasing titles twice.

The leaker mentioned that pre-order will be available right after the 5th February reveal date.




The console will be priced at $499 USD / £449 UK / €449 EU / ¥54,999 JP.

Specs And Models

It's reported that only one version of the PS5 will be available at launch, with no plan to have a pro version in 2020.

The leak claims that the base PS5 specs will be roughly on par with the most expensive Xbox Series X model (costing $100 more than the PS5).

Microsoft will also supposedly have a cheaper new Xbox that will cost $100 less than the PS5.

The leaker also claims that PS5 will have 10 teraflops of GPU power, while the cheaper 2020 Xbox will get about half that at 4 teraflops.

A disputed PS5 rumour recently said the console will have a GPU capable of 9.2 teraflops, while the Xbox would go to 12 teraflops.


PlayStation Now, Remote Play & More

This 4chan user also mentioned PlayStation Now, saying that it will play a vital role in the PS5’s future by giving you access to games via a subscription fee or just play your own games.

Each PS5 purchase will come with a three-month PS Now trial.

Remote Play will also support PS5 gameplay on smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktops.

All that's needed is an internet connection to stream games from the console.

The mobile PS5 app will also get a makeover, although the virtual assistant we’ve read so much about wasn’t mentioned.



Backwards Compatibility

Backwards compatibility will also be available for PS4 games.

Through a new transferring feature, users can transfer their PS4 games to the PS5 if those games are downloaded.

Save data/backups for PS4 games will also be transferable.

Apparently, games from all past PlayStation consoles will be available on the PS5.

Peripherals such as the DualShock 4 controllers, PSVR, and other PS4 accessories will be forwards compatible on the console as well.
