Is Sony Working on a PlayStation 5 Pro? Rumours Point to a Possible Release in 2024 26

Sony may be preparing to release a PlayStation 5 Pro, with rumours suggesting the console could be available in late 2024. While this information should be taken with a grain of salt, several sources have spoken to Insider Gaming about the possible PS5 Pro release. However, it’s important to note that this is separate from the rumoured PlayStation 5 with a detachable disc drive, which is expected to launch this year.

Insider Gaming hasn’t been able to provide any details on what features could be included in the PS5 Pro, but it’s expected to offer better graphics and boosted performance compared to the vanilla model. Sony has recently filed a patent that suggests the company is working on improving ray tracing performance, so this could be an area of focus for the PS5 Pro. The cooling system could also be quieter than its predecessor, the PS4 Pro.

While some gamers are questioning the need for a PS5 Pro, the device is unlikely to be available anytime soon. The release date of the PS5 Pro is tentative, and it could even be delayed until 2025. Sony has time to adjust its plans, and Insider Gaming has even suggested that the release date of the PS6 could be pushed to 2028.

The rumoured PS5 with a detachable disc drive is expected to launch in September of this year. This device will feature a USB-C port that allows the drive to connect to the console. The drive won’t be external, but instead will be housed within the console to preserve its aesthetic appeal. Gamers will have the option to purchase the console with or without the drive, giving them more flexibility when it comes to their gaming experience. In case of any damage, the disc drive can easily be replaced with a new one.


Pokdepinion: If a Pro model ever comes out, my theory is that it will try to push extra hard for 4K120FPS gaming or 8K gaming, though the latter is less likely since practically no one owns a display capable of outputting a resolution that high.
