By Greg KorteThe PlayStation 5 is set to be the first console to come with a fully redesigned design, as Sony has already confirmed the existence of the PS5 Pro and a few other tweaks for the console.
In an interview with The Verge, a senior executive said that the design team is currently working on a new version of the console with the same refresh of the design as the current model.
“We’re really happy with the refresh, but we’re also trying to understand what the user needs,” said the executive.
“What’s the user’s preference?”
This new design has been in the works for a while, as the company has been working on it since 2015, with the first version of it being announced in 2018.
The company has kept the refresh secret until now, but it’s now ready to reveal it to the world, and it looks like the design has already been finalized.
The PS5 is set for a refresh with a new look, which we’re calling “PS5 Pro” for now.
The PS5 has a larger screen than the PS4 Pro, but that’s not going to change any time soon.
The PlayStation 5 Pro has a 12.3-inch 1080p display, which should be more than enough for a gamer on the go.
However, it still falls short of what the Xbox One S offers, which is a 13.3 inch screen with a 1440p resolution.
Sony has said that it’s planning to push back the PS10 Pro refresh to give users the opportunity to experience a more traditional gaming experience, so we’ll be sure to bring you more on that later.
In the video above, we talk with Sony executive Shuhei Yoshida about the PS3 and PS4, and he talks about the design process of the next-gen consoles.
Here are some highlights:”One of the reasons we want to do it this way is to give gamers a little bit more of an upgrade in the way they experience the hardware,” Yoshida said.
“It’s not that we’re changing the architecture of the hardware, it’s just about making sure that when you’re using the hardware that you can actually take advantage of the new capabilities.”
Yoshida also says that the refresh of PS5 will be more powerful than the one we saw in 2017, but will offer a similar experience.
“This refresh will give you the ability to have a much larger display, but the hardware will still be capable of running at 1080p,” he said.
