PlayStation 5 Development


Sony’s PlayStation 5 launched on November 19, 2020. Its new technology paved the way for a new generation of gaming.

  where can I buy a PS5?  

Cerney explained in the video what went into the development of the next-generation console as well as what his role had been.

A lot of the decisions made during the PS5’s development made considerations to the game developers, like the use of SSD.

Requests for the consoles to use an SSD were made since PlayStation 4’s development. One of those who made the request was Tim Sweeney the CEO of Epic Games.



At first, it had been decided to put in an NVMe SSD with a speed of 1 GB which turned out to be 5 GB.

The video offered a lot of interesting things about the design decisions of the next-generation console. We also get to know what goes on in the design meetings.

The meetings are “brutal” said Cerny, but are useful to the team to make a console that everyone is happy about.

Give the video above a watch, you will definitely learn something new about the PlayStation 5.
