For console gamers, 2020 is going to be a big year. Not only are we getting the Playstation 5 release, but we’ll also get the Xbox 2/ Project Scarlett, as well as a whole host of big-name games like Cyberpunk 2077 and Watch Dogs: Legion. But, it looks like that’s not all. Rumors are circulating that Sony will have the PS5 Pro release at the same time as the standard console.
PS5 Pro Release
We don’t have a confirmed release date just yet from Sony when it comes to their next-gen console. But, there has been plenty of speculation nonetheless. When will we find out a PS5 Pro release date? Well, thanks to a leaked email earlier this year, it looks like we’ll have to wait until February 2020 for a firm date.
The email outlined an event called PlayStation Meeting 2020 and promised to give details on Ghosts of Tsushima, The Last of Us 2, and the upcoming PS5 and PS5 Pro. The leak claimed that invitations for big-name game developers like Ubisoft, EA, and Activision were being prepared already.
Is It True?
Honestly, we don’t know. And, there really isn’t a lot of information floating around about it. The rumors began thanks to a comment shared by journalist Zenj Nishikawa. They said they had been told by Sony execs that they would be “launching two PlayStation models that are different in their performance”. Not exactly a solid platform to stand on.
But, the idea of Sony launching a “Pro” version of their next-gen console makes perfect sense - it’s the new normal when it comes to console gaming. Whether or not they launch it at the same time as their base model though, is another matter.
PS5 Pro vs. PS5
Of course, we don’t have any confirmed specs for a console that hasn’t even been confirmed. But, we can always guess. Previous “Pro” models have come with some hardware upgrades and a higher price tag. At the end of the day, it will come down to what’s most important to you in terms of gaming - saving money or getting better performance.
