You Can Play PS4 Games On The PS5 Console

Sony Computer Entertainment recently announced that the new gaming console will be compatible with almost all Playstation 4 games. Yes, the PS5 will support most of the top 100 PS4 games listed on the PSN portal. Hence, gamers can save some of their money to invest in the new DualSense controller, which will be available at RM 300 each.

Coronavirus will not delay the Playstation 5 release

There will be no delay in the release of the PS5 as the release will take place between October and December 2020, Sony officially confirmed during the reveal event.  Rumours suggest that the release date will be on November 20, but nothing is official yet. If the rumour is true, Sony will go head-to-head against Microsoft’s Xbox Series X as the rival company is releasing its gaming device at the same time.

The Price of the PS5 could be similar to the PS4

While the official price has not been confirmed by Sony, there are some suggestions on how much it could be. It is said that the console would cost around RM2100 when it releases. If the rumour is true, it would be a piece of great news to all gamers as it is just RM250 more than the PS4 Pro launch price. Several sources suggest that the price stated would most probably be the official cost of the new console, but we will have to wait for Sony to confirm it.
