During a corporate strategy presentation, Sony announced more details for its upcoming next-gen console, the PlayStation 5. The company listed everything about the system revealed so far, confirmed the PlayStation 5 will share similar architecture as the PS4, allowing backwards compatibility for previous titles as well as PlayStation VR.

As previously reported, the system will feature new CPU and GPU as well as SSD for storage instead of hard drives. The upcoming console will also be futureproofed to support 8K graphics, although native 8K games aren’t expected to be seen for quite some time in the industry.
