Sony, a Japanese tech giant, is expected to unveil the PS6 soon in the market. Sony Senior Vice President Naomi Matsuoka stated latest statement hints that the next PlayStation console to be unveiled soon.

He said: “Looking ahead, PS5 will enter the latter stage of its life cycle.” However, there’s no official announcement about the console reveal. Rumours and leaks have begun promoting excitement about the reveal of PlayStation 6.

Microsoft court document as part of the Activision Blizzard acquisition said: “By the time SIE launched the next generation of its PlayStation console (which is likely to occur around [redacted]), it would have lost access to Call of Duty.” The biggest hint at the PS6 launch is planned to be released in 2027.

The price value of a PS6 is impractical to guess with any degree of assurance. However, as compared to the previous pricing and rumoured features, it might be available for less than $500 at release, if not closer to the cautioned $600 mark.

Moore’s Law has said: “With 100% certainty that Sony will continue its partnership with AMD to power the PS6 and PS5 Pro.”

It makes sense as this is the same chipset utilised in the PS5. The next generation of AMD chips is intended to be launched next year so that it could be included in PS6.

It’s expected that a new SSD will be added to the PS6, as it was an important push in the PS5. However, no word has been revealed on that. By the time a PS6 comes out, people would also expect 1TB of storage space.

Insider Gaming intends to have a document related to a unique specification that is being worked on for the PS6 known as PlayStation Spectral Super Resolution (PSSR).

According to Insider Gaming, this feature purportedly will let games run at either 4K at 120 frames per second (fps) or 8K at 60 fps. A weaker version of PSSR is apparently being experimented into the PS5 Pro. However, it will be fully used in the PS6.
