Recent rumors suggest that Sony could be shipping PlayStation 5 Pro development kit prototypes to first-party developers sooner than expected. The PlayStation 5 Pro would be an upgraded version of the current PlayStation 5 that improves its technical capacities to run demanding games with no hiccups. Rumors of a new version of the PlayStation 5 have been spreading since March, with some reports suggesting that the PS5 Pro is already in active development. Sources claim that Sony has been working on a new version of its popular console for a while, and the PS5 Pro is further along than most anticipate.
According to patents published by PlayStation architect Mark Cerny, Sony is exploring ways to improve ray tracing performance in its upcoming games. The PS5 Pro could offer such an improvement since the exact specifics of these prototypes are not yet revealed. However, more information about the PS5 Pro could be unveiled in the upcoming months as developers discover the new capacities of this upgraded console.
Insider Gaming reports that the PS5 Pro is currently in development, and Sony expects to send PS5 development kit prototypes to first-party developers in the upcoming months. Third-party developers will have to wait a bit longer, as reports suggest they may receive PS5 development kits by the end of the year.
After months of component shortages that delayed the global distribution of PlayStation 5, Sony managed to outpace the sales of the PlayStation 4 with its new generation consoles. As players eagerly wait for the announcement of a new generation of consoles, rumors circulate regarding the PlayStation 6. However, it seems that Sony will keep its tradition of releasing mid-generation consoles improving the default version of its hardware, just like it did with the PS4 Pro three years after the release of the PS4.
Though the exact improvements brought by the PS5 Pro remain a mystery, some leakers already shared that Sony is looking to launch the PS5 Pro by the end of 2024, aiming at a holiday release. Additionally, Sony would launch new accessories for the PS5, a handheld device, and a new PS5 with a detachable disc drive.
As we wait for further updates from Sony regarding the PS5 Pro and its potential specifications, one thing is for sure: the PS5 Pro will offer significant improvements in the overall experience of playing high-end games. Players can look forward to a more advanced gaming experience thanks to this upgraded console.
