After the bevy of leaks and rumors regarding the next generation of PlayStation hardware have been come to light, Sony's Mark Cerny officially unveiled some highly-requested details about the next console to come from them. While there is much more to learn, it was revealed that the PlayStation 5 will indeed by backwards compatible with existing PlayStation 4 titles, which is a feature many fans have been wanting for quite some time. In addition to this, the console will have a significant amount of speed behind it, cutting loading times down by a lot.
The interview between Cerny and Wired was released earlier, which resulted in fans across the Internet sharing their excitement for the PlayStation 5. While many did convey their joy for official details about the console, some have certainly expressed their reservations. Sure, the PlayStation 4 is pretty powerful, but there is always room for improvement. Either way, the hype train is beginning to roll out of the station.

I’m happy to announce this morning that the PlayStation 5 (working title) will in fact play video games.— Ben "Ben Pack" Pack (@PackBenPack) April 16, 2019
Needless to say, fans are pretty excited about the PlayStation 5. Again, not all of the details are out on the table, but what has been unveiled so far is looking pretty good. Since Sony won't be at this year's E3, however, we might just be waiting a bit of time before more information comes to light. Either way, exciting times ahead!
