Sony’s latest patent application sighting emerged following the claims that Sony was modifying the streaming service of Playstation Now.

Earlier last month, rumors across the industry suggested that the redesigned Playstation Now service will get a significant push with the launch of the PS5.

Although Sony is still mum about the details of the release of a new gaming console, industry experts believe that the move is geared towards the version of Google and Microsoft’s new streaming console.

It can be recalled that Google and Microsoft released the Google Stadia and the xCloud games streaming services, respectively.

Playstation 5 Will Bring Innovative Features

Meanwhile, Mike Cerny, Playstation’s lead architect, and console producer said that the PS5 would offer innovative features that will further improve user experience.

Cerny revealed that the PS5 would come with ray-tracing graphics and visuals with 8K resolution, a 7nm AMD Ryzen chip based on Zen 2 architecture and a graphics processing unit from the Radieo Navi family.

Sony said that the promise from this trio of hardware is massive bandwidth capabilities, quicker load times, and oodles of graphics grunt. Cerny also added that the PS5 also has an optical disc drive but is still tight-lipped about its final spec.

Sony has yet to reveal the official release of their gaming consoles, but most signs point to a late 2020 release. Analysts from Ace Research added that the consoles would likely arrive by November 2020.
