Watch Sony's "The Road to PS5" stream here

Earlier this week, Microsoft revealed the specifications of its Xbox Series X console, and today, Sony plans to showcase its PlayStation 5 console, delivering a "deep dive into PS5's system architecture". The next stage of the console wars is about to start. 

By the end of 2020, the 9th generation of consoles will have started, delivering to gamers SSD storage, ray tracing hardware and stronger CPUs and GPUs than ever before. 

At 4 PM GMT (9 AM PT), Sony's Mark Cerny will provide gamers with everything they need to know about the next generation of PlayStation, hopefully giving gamers a full spec list and a look at the PlayStation 5's enclosure. 

Developers have already started to talk about Sony's next-generation console, with Billy Khan, the Lead Engine Programmer at id Software, stating that the console is "awesome", on Twitter. Sony's PlayStation 5 will offer a lot more power than today's PlayStation 4 series consoles, but only time will tell if Sony has what it takes to challenge Microsoft's Xbox Series X in terms of hardware.

Sony's "Road to PlayStation 5" stream will be available to view here. Expect the discussion to be dry, as this reveal was originally planned as a GDC showcase.

I LOVE how he mentions how a RDNA2 FLOP != PS4 FLOP
MS/news outlets should learn from this...
I'm sold already.

Will be far cheaper than Series X. Only 36 CUs.Quote

I definitely want one but it is strange Sony only went for 36 CUs. You think they would have learned from MS's mistake last time about how minor the power difference was yet the impact on sales it had. Sony should have either beefed it up OR release a Pro version alongside it that is more powerful. Would have made more sense seeing how MS was clearly eyeing a performance crown since the One X launched.

That being said I think if this comes in at around $450 at most this will be a pretty big seller. MS console is going to be at least $600.Quote

I couldn't care less about the Xbox, tbh. And simply because the Xbox game library doesn't interest me nearly as much as that of the PlayStation. On top of that, the PS5 will definitely be cheaper, judging by the hardware specs.Quote
