The Playstation 5 is finally out, after more than two years of development. Both Amazon and Media Markt are still offering bundles with included games and additional controllers, which should be available by February 28th at the latest.
What is Sony up to in Playstation 5 Pro or Playstation 6?
Will the prospects for a "real" Playstation 5 (buy now €708.00) Pro with significantly more power be confirmed more than two years after the release of the basic model? In the previous generation of consoles, Sony took this step to match the higher hardware requirements of titles such as The Last of Us 2 or God of War with a Playstation 4 Pro. However, there seems to be little to see other than a removable drive.
According to leaker Tom Hendersen, the Playstation 5 will only be a single hardware iteration. This contradicts Phonandroid's report of a model with water cooling and better AMD chips. However, Tom Henderson is unsure whether players will ever acquire a model with the "Pro" name suffix.
A well-known leaker has spread rumors about a Playstation 6 model.
According to Tom Henderson, Sony would stop producing the current Playstation 5 model (with and without a disc drive) by the end of the year. Instead, there will be no smaller "Slim" version and no "Pro" version either. According to Sony, the basic model will be revised in such a manner that one might prefer to think of a "second generation."

This purely digital Playstation 5 includes an optional external disc drive, which may be connected to the new model, but not to the "old" purely digital PS5 in the future, which would save money in terms of production and shipping.

The PlayStation 5 Pro with its detachable disc drive is expected to be released shortly, according to leaker Tom Henderson. "It doesn't feel like the potential of the regular version has been fully exploited," he says.
PC game fans are also a popular choice.
In the next few months, Sony is expected to release the Playstation 5 Pro, which will include water cooling as well as other features.
Amazon is offering incredible discounts of up to 63% on RAM, monitors, games (PC, Switch, PS5,), televisions (LG OLED TV, Samsung QLED), smartphones, and more.
The Playstation 6 may be a long way off when considering the effects of the corona epidemic on the PS5's development and availability, but Sony should be very keen on making the current PS5 and future models available as quickly as possible.
