While Microsoft's next-gen Xbox console shoots for 8K resolutions, ray tracing and up to 120fps (presumably, not all at the same time), Sony is a bit more modest with its goals for the PlayStation 5. Over at the E3 show, the Japanese electronics giant said its goal for the PS5 is to guarantee 120fps at 4K resolution at all times. The firm also said a SSD will be default. The PS5 is expected net year.
Sony is skipping E3 this year, but the company is still offering up some new details about the PlayStation 5: it’ll come with an SSD by default, instead of a slower HDD like the PS4; it’ll support 4K graphics at a 120Hz refresh rate, for a much smoother look on displays that can handle the faster speed; and game saves will in some way be able to transfer between console generations, so you can pick up where you left off when you start playing a game again on the new console.
