    There isn't a whole lot in here that we didn't already know, but its good to have it all concrete. Its a long, informative article with some good details.

    Some highlites:

    - The system will not come out in 2019
    - The system will not be at E3
    - The system will have physical media
    - The system will be backwards compatible with the PS4
    - The system will have an advanced SSD

    Based on everything that we've heard, and the fact that Sony is giving official interviews like this one, I'd say that its pretty likely that the system will be out in 2020 though, probably the Autumn.

    Hardware ray tracing makes me slap my forehead, pat my wallet in sympathy, and start saving up for a new GPU. Because if consoles will have hardware ray tracing, it's time to get a GPU for my PC that supports it.

    I started writing a message saying that Sony probably need to be careful with how they market the PS5 and then realised that regardless I'd still be buying one within a few months of launch. Just don't bungle it as badly as you managed to the launch of the PS3 or Microsoft did the Xbox One and we should be fine.

    Yeah, the move from the PS2 to the PS3 was awful. Any game not made exclusively for Sony was garbage for about three years, apparently because the system was so hard to code for. I think that they've learned their lesson.
