"The PlayStation 5 is a masterpiece of systems design. Not only is it driving a huge leap in computing and graphics performance, but it is also revolutionary in terms of storage and data compression technology, unlocking new kinds of games and experiences for players to enjoy," said Penwarden.

In an interview with journalists from the same magazine, Epic Games' technology director Kim Liberi spoke in a similar tone, complimenting the power of the PS5.

"Next-gen graphics and processing power will not only make games more immersive, but will also enable entirely new gameplay concepts that can take advantage of fully dynamic environments and lighting, much improved physics, smarter AI, and richer multiplayer experiences," said Kim Liberi.

The PS5 does not have a specific launch date so far - we only know that Sony\s console will be launched at the end of this year.
