Next Generation Sony PlayStation 5, Here Is What People Want From The Console

The Sony PlayStation 5 is rumored to be coming out in the next couple of years, so we asked some people what they wanted to see in the next Sony PlayStation and we got some really interesting responses. You can check out what people want in the Sony PlayStation 5 below.

Backwards Compatibility

Backwards compatibility has been a huge drawback of the PS4 and people want the issue to go away with the Sony PlayStation 5. Some people said that they would love to play God of War on the upcoming PlayStation 5, even with the same graphics, but at a higher frame rate. Xbox has plenty of backwards compatibility options and that is a key area that fans enjoy. People would like to see that be a feature for the Sony PlayStation 5.

Sony’s solution to this problem is PS Now, the online streaming service where you can play older titles, but from what we have heard, the experience is not too good. people have argued that there is lag and that if you have a weak internet connection, then there are times when you lose your progress.

Being a gamer I can understand how frustrating that can be. Having that said, streaming is not a solution, at least not until the majority of the userbase has access to high-speed internet and I do not see that happening any time soon.

1080/60fps or 4K/30fps For All Games

While some games do have these options, it is up to the developers to decide what they allow and what they don’t. Talking to the people about what features they would like to see in the upcoming Sony PlayStation 5, we were told that they would like to see the flexibility of choosing between whether they wanted to play a game at a higher resolution or at a higher frame rate. This goes for all games.

I understand that this is not something that Sony can do on its own. This has to be sorted out at the developer’s end but there is a chance that Sony can make some kind of deal the with developers, in order for them to provide both options for users to pick and choose how they want to play the games that they have bought.

While some players prefer better graphics, there are those that look for a PC experience and that means a higher frame rate even if that means a lower resolution. I think that this is not unreasonable and that it is very doable indeed. David Rodriguez, CEO of Catness Game Studios and Programmer of HIVE, talked about 4K 60 FPS being the minimum for upcoming consoles. This includes the PlayStation 5 as well as the next Xbox. The following is what he had to say in this regard:

“I’m not sure, actually. I don’t expect big changes but more computational capacity to get more realistic graphics in very huge scenarios. I would love to see huge sandbox games with an accurate scale to the real cities and villages and the space between them,”

Increased Minimum Internal Memory

Games are getting bigger and require a lot of storage, unlike the older days. While talking to people about what they want to see in the upcoming PS5, we were told that storage is an issue and that they would like to see increased storage options. Some people even mentioned that they would like a 4 TB option.

Some people also mentioned that they would like to see faster storage. Keep in mind that you have the option of changing the hard drive after you purchase the PS4. This might be carried forward to the PlayStation 5 as well. If Sony does provide a 4 TB option, then I am pretty sure that the company will charge a premium for the increased storage. That is also something worth considering.

More USB Ports

While this is a bit of an odd one, people are asking for additional USB ports for the upcoming PlayStation 5. While I have not had the need of more for the PS4, this might be a hindrance for some. Sony could look into this. Adding a few more USB ports is not too much to ask and neither is it a hard thing to pull off either.

4K Blu-Ray Support

4K is hitting the mainstream as 4K TVs and displays are getting less expensive as compared to before. Having that said, the PS4 does not have support for 4K Blu-Ray and that is something that people are looking forward to being an option on the PS5. Keep in mind that the console is not just supposed to be for gaming, it is an entertainment package and is used for watching Netflix and what not. With that in mind, the inclusion of a 4K Blu Ray drive would be great.

There was some speculation that we might be able to hear more about the PS5 at E3 2018, but Chairman of Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide, Layden said that won’t be the case,

Let us know what you want to see in the next generation Sony PlayStation 5 and whether or not you agree with he list of features that we have mentioned above.
