    A rumour it'll have an NVME. Highly doubt it. It'll just be a normal SSD i reckon, and either in 1TB or 2TB sizes. Either way it still isn't enough with most games now exceeding 50GB.

    Not sure about the 8K stuff either. If anything it'll be able to play 8K content (movies/video) not games. The current ps4 pro can't even play native 4K games as is.

    DEVs still haven't learnt that people just want a smooth 60fps gaming experience. The 30fps cap kills it for me hence why I don't really buy games on ps4 so if there is one thing i'd like to see is 1080p-1440p max settings at 60fps.

    It will be something like a NVME drive for sure considering it’s apparently pci-e 4.0 drive which could mean it may not be upgradable???

    This eleventy million percent.

    A "fantastic media hub which can also play games" .... would dominate the world.

    A "game machine, which can also play media" .... may as well just be a game machine only.

    The UI for one is slow, not XB1 slow but still not as responsive as it should be. My 2c.

    To answer my own question; current PSVR hardware and games will still be supported on PS5.

    No news on the next generation of VR.

    I expect an NVME SSD as well.

    Maybe it will be NVME for system and a space available for expandable storage. Like I said games are getting massive these days and I don’t see a NVME being more then 512GB maybe if you’re lucky 1TB.

    Ultra Blu Ray support. There is a reason why I have an Xbox One S and it's to play Ultra Blu Ray discs. That's all it does, and nothing more.

    I’m thinking 1TB for storage as 500gb will not cut it anymore let alone 2020 and beyond. Ultra Blu-ray support is pretty likely considering console is confirmed to have 8k support. Biggest issue with this is what will the price be?

    i think the ps5 will be changed a bit as in more of an interactive media centre.... like an androidtv device for streaming services etc

    I had a look at that google streaming service for games, too many road blocks IMO before it will be viable outside of anywhere not connected to google 1Gbit internet. Just remember Nvidia Shield tried to do exactly what they are doing and it unfortunately failed due to latency and bandwidth issues. Then there's local streaming tech i.e. the steam device - even that had delay issues streaming on a local Gbit network, especially for FPS games...

    The PS5 will still support physical media so 4K Blu-ray just makes sense.
