Sony Interactive Entertainment has released what it calls the Ultimate FAQ for the PS5. In it, the company reveals a number of details about the upcoming next generation console. This includes confirming a number of previous reports.
A lot of the entries here mention things that kind of go without saying. It also repeats a lot of details already mentioned during the GDC presentation, so it’s a good way to be doing your PS5 revision, if that makes sense. But among them there are a number of important details to highlight. One is that the console will indeed come with a HDMI 2.1 cable in the box.
It also confirms previous reports of the PS5 not making use of the M.2 SSD slot at launch. On a related note, SIE says the company is considering allowing next-gen games to be stored on external USB drives. But even if this comes to pass, you’ll still have to transfer them to the SSD to play said games.
The FAQ page also confirms no 1440p output for the PS5, as suggested by previous reports. Then there are other smaller details like games remaining region-free, and that the consoles record the last 60 minutes of gameplay automatically. These two are basically PS4 features making a return. What won’t be returning, for better or worse, is the rather poor web browser.
The FAQ states that you can stream your PS5 to your PS4 via Remote Play. It’s an interesting way to make use of an outgoing console, to be sure.
At the end of a pretty long post, SIE says the PS5 FAQ will be updated in the future. So more information may be added here in the future. You can check it out for yourself by following the link below.
