The Japanese company has come out to deny some rumors that assured that it had been forced to delay the release of PS5, a new generation console that will compete with Xbox Series X and that, like that one, will hit the market at the end of the year.
I put you in situation. Over the past few weeks, voices have been growing to take for granted a delay in the PS5 release of first quarter of 2021. Most of them justified this delay by referring to a question of costs and structural problems related mainly to the cooling system.
As we have indicated Sony has come out and denied those rumors. The Japanese company ensures that its new console will hit the market in time for the Christmas season, a very successful date for obvious reasons. It is no coincidence, the new generation consoles could end up becoming the star gift for technology lovers this Christmas.
Sony says everything is fine with PS5 and its games
Despite the impact of COVID-19, and the challenge of jumping into the teleworking model to face the pandemic, Sony has managed to overcome all the problems that have arisen and has everything ready to continue with the plan they had preset. PS5 will arrive at the end of the year, and the first games for said console nor have they suffered any delay.
It is clear that a subsequent launch would have left PS5 in a very difficult position, and that The last thing Sony would want is to leave Xbox Series X alone for a Christmas launch. A launch in the first quarter of the year will not be a significant delay, but Sony would miss the Christmas season and arrive at a much less favorable time, something that would end up affecting its sales.
If everything goes according to plan, the presentation of PS5 is expected for next June. Microsoft has already shown Xbox Series X in great detail, so the ball has been on Sony’s roof for a while. It will be interesting to see how the Japanese company has solved the issue of the duality between design and power of the cooling system. It is a fundamental question, since both your CPU and your GPU they use a turbo mode whose scaling depends on the working temperatures. If these are too high, the speed drops, and the performance drops.
