PlayStation 5 Is A Revolutionary, Inspired Home Console, Says Developer
We finally know the full specs of Sony's upcoming next-gen console, thanks to Mark Cerny's "deep dive" PlayStation 5 presentation last week. And while all the techy mumbo jumbo may have been a bit much for some, it seems that it was certainly enough to excite Andrea Pessino, founder and CTO of The Order: 1886 developers, Ready at Dawn.
Pessino took to Twitter to say that, within a year of launch, gamers will "fully appreciate that the PlayStation 5 is the most revolutionary, inspired home consoles ever designed" (thanks, GamesRadar). That's high praise indeed, and Pessino also goes on to say that we'll "feel silly" for fighting over teraflops when it comes to the next-gen consoles - which, coincidentally, is also something that our Ewan talked in-depth about, last week.
Pessino is the founder of Ready at Dawn, the studio behind The Order: 1886, which was a PlayStation 4 exclusive launching back in 2015. While The Order wasn't particularly groundbreaking in terms of gameplay, it did earn a lot of praise for its visuals, with comments such as "best looking game I've ever seen" and "literally no game has ever looked this good" by both users and critics alike over on Metacritic. The studio is also responsible for a handful of PSP (PlayStation Portable) titles, including God of War: Chains of Olympus.
So, it would seem that Pessino knows what he's talking about when it comes to what the newly revealed specs will mean for developers. And it looks like he's not the only one to be excited by the PlayStation 5's capabilities. Various developers have also taken to Twitter to share their thoughts, including Naughty Dog's Kurt Margenau and Anthony Newman, both of whom are co-game directors on The Last of Us Part II.

Now we know what both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are offering in terms of specs. Mark Cerny's PlayStation 5 reveal came just days after Microsoft revealed the full specs of the Xbox Series X. And while both next-gen consoles are still some way off, it's given players and developers alike the chance to think about what each console will offer in terms of features and gameplay.
There is still no word on pricing on either of the next-gen consoles, though, with the current coronavirus pandemic and the possibility of delays, it's probably sensible for both companies to wait until the last minute to make that particular announcement.
