About The PS5's Projected Launch Date
According to Learn Bonds, there have been mixed views about the launch date of the PlayStation 5. Some tech enthusiasts are believing that Sony could potentially launch the console soon after the arrival of the Microsoft Xbox Project Scorpio.
Clashing With Microsoft
As everyone may have already known, Microsoft is currently building the Xbox Scorpio, which has been deemed to be the most powerful gaming console ever built by the company. The "premium" console will feature a whopping 6 teraflops of GPU, along with offering true 4K gaming and high-fidelity virtual reality. The company is expected to release the console at the end of 2017, but no official launch date has been revealed up until this time.

Talking about the PlayStation 5, Sony head Shuhei Yoshida said that the console's future is up to the developers. According to Travelers Today, the PlayStation 5 will be offering native 4K support.
The PlayStation 5 is also going to be more powerful than the PlayStation 4. Rumors are also suggesting that Sony is in collaboration with AMD for the processing chips.
The PlayStation 5 is expected to offer support for virtual reality. The console might also come without the optical drive as digital downloads are becoming more popular these days. Furthermore, rumors have also suggested that the PlayStation 5 will be coming with a price tag of around $500.
