PS5 specs – what's inside the next-generation PlayStation console?

While Sony has already confirmed that its upcoming hardware will be launching sometime in Holiday 2020, the PlayStation company has stopped short of revealing a specific date, so this latest claim of a November 20 launch certainly lines up with everything we've heard so far. 

While it's interesting to get excited over the latest series of PS5 leaks, this one - unlike the now verified images of the PS5 devkit - should be treated with plenty of skepticism. While PSErebus has a history of reporting on Sony's plans, their anonymity and minimal follower count makes it difficult to completely trust this latest rumor.  

In more recent PS5 news, a new patent for the PS5 controller also surfaced online earlier this week, while another leak from last month suggests the console will feature more robust streaming infrastructure. Meanwhile, new evidence of Horizon Zero Dawn 2 has also emerged, with job listings at Guerrilla Games suggesting a sequel to the action RPG could be in the works as a PS5 launch game

Closer to home, Sony has confirmed its official Black Friday slate of deals for the upcoming season of sales, so check out our guide to the best PS4 Black Friday offers that are already live and on the way for more info.
