The PS5 has had rumoured pricings all the way from almost $900 to just under $400, but it makes sense to not want to reveal the price too soon: Microsoft is hovering over the PS5, looking to undercut it.

In a flawless world, we would definitely think enough about the PlayStation 5 and the new-age games discharging on the stage.

Recent reports also say that Sony may have a limited stock of PS5 for launch, and that the console may be more expensive than some people expect.

The document covers everything from the DualSense Controller to even touching briefly on Sony's plans with AI. Storage on both consoles will likely represent the biggest upgrade over current models as both the new Xbox and PS5 will feature speed SSD solutions. Think Cyberpunk 2077, Ghost of Tsushima, but what further reveals can we expect to see from Sony soon?

According to the firm, the new console will be up to 100 times faster than the PS4 because of the adoption of a high-speed SSD for storage.

'Game load times should be much shorter, and players should be able to move through huge game worlds in nearly an instant'.

BREAKDOWN: The document makes some bold statements!

This isn't the first time that Sony has touted the PlayStation 5's supposedly incredible processing speed and it definitely won't be the last.

Highly anticipated and immersive upcoming titles, such as Assassin's Creed Vahalla on PS5, could benefit immensely from faster loading times.

The device used in the next-generation console is a custom SSD that uses the NVMe standard.

What else do we know?

The PS5 is scheduled for release in Holiday 2020, however a set date is yet to be announced.
