Unlike the PS4 as well as Xbox One, both of which were running on probably out-of-date hardware even when they released, the PS5 as well as Xbox Series X are looking like impressive items of machinery, both in different means. The need for boosted consoles for both of them doesn’t seem as pushing as it did for their predecessors, yet however, there have actually been lots of inquiries concerning whether that’s something Sony and Microsoft are working on.

If a recently released license by Sony is anything to go by, it seems they’re at least believing regarding it. While the license itself seems to be focused on cloud streaming– which is likely referring to PlayStation Now– it does make reference of a scalable design that might be tailored for working with what’s explained as a “high-end” tool.

One paragraph of the license in particular plainly discusses hypothetical “light” and “high-end” variations of a console. It checks out, “SoC modern technology can be applied to video clip simulation gaming consoles such as video game consoles, as well as in particular a solitary SoC might be provided for a “light” version of the console while plural SoCs may be made use of to provide a “high-end” version of the console with better handling and also storage space capability than the “light” variation. The “luxury” system can also contain more memory such as random-access memory (RAM) and also various other functions as well as may additionally be made use of for a cloud-optimized version making use of the very same video game console chip with even more performance.”

As holds true with any kind of patent, there’s no warranties that this will appear as something concrete, given that business often file licenses to protect concepts as well as technology greater than anything else. It does, nonetheless, indicate that a high-end version of the PS5 is something that Sony contend least taken into consideration and also could be planning for, must the need for it emerge.
