It has been announced that the next-gen PlayStation console will be called as "PlayStation 5" which is not surprising given the traditional naming scheme of the previously launched PlayStation consoles.

As we said, "Ray tracing is a rendering technique that aims to simulate the way light bounces off objects, in turn creating more realistic shadows, reflections, and lighting effects". We also noticed the faster loading times and performance upgrades that could be seen were extremely similar to Wired's interview with the lead architect on the PS5, Mark Cerny. These are not as expensive as they used to be due to the popularity of NVME drives but they are not quite cheap either. But as soon as they are we will keep you up to speed as always.

As first discovered by Dutch tech site Lets Go Digital (who recently created a mock-up of what Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons could have looked like), the patent goes into great detail about what could be included in a new PlayStation VR headset.

Sony's Mark Cerny revealed that PlayStation 5 will be powered by AMD's latest hardware.

The patent also shows the option for a separate camera much as we have in the current PlayStation VR setup. The company has launched PlayStation, PS One (redesigned PlayStation), PlayStation 2, PlayStation 2 Slimline, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 3 "Slim" model, "Super Slim" PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Slim and PlayStation 4 Pro.

It's worth noting the wait between the launch of the PS4 and the launch of the PSVR was three years, but now that Sony has established itself in the VR marketplace, perhaps the PSVR 2 will arrive more quickly.

Yesterday, Sony confirmed a lot of new details about the PlayStation 5, perhaps most importantly stating that the console will be out in time for the holiday 2020 season.
