In April of last year, it was announced by video game designer Mark Cerny that the PlayStation 5 will be coming in 2020.

And even though the release of the actual console isn't due to happen until later in the year...

The PlayStation 5 website went live a few weeks ago.

Sony's Interactive Entertainment have been teasing gamers in the UK and Germany...

"We've begun to share some of the incredible features you can expect from PlayStation 5, but we're not quite ready to fully unveil the next generation of PlayStation," reads the company's statement on the website.

"Sign up to be among the first to receive updates as we announce them, including news on the PS5 release date, PS5 price and the upcoming roster of PS5 launch games," the website goes on to say.

Sony's chief financial officer Hiroki Totoki explained why it's still early days to determine the cost of it.

"First, we must absolutely control the labor cost, the personnel cost, it must be controlled," he said, "And the initial ramp up, how much can we prepare initially, we will work on the production and the sales and we will have to prepare the right volume as we launch this."

So it looks like fans have a little longer to wait for those answers...

"What is not very clear or visible is because we are competing in the space so it's very difficult to discuss anything about the price at this point of time, and depending upon the price level, we may have to determine the promotion that we are going to deploy and how much costs we are prepared to pay," he went on to say.

But with a huge thanks to the internet...

4K UHD Blu-Ray drive, a custom AMD GPU, and the SSD.

But there's one feature that's really got everyone talking.

Although it's been met with mixed reactions.

Sony's upcoming PS5 will be backward-compatible with several PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro games.

Lead system architect Mark Cerny confirmed the speculation during the “Road to PS5" presentation on Wednesday.

According to Cerny, nearly all of the top PS4 titles, which are ranked by playtime, will be playable on PS5 when it launches.

And, players will be able to free up space on their consoles by “running your older games from standard external storage."

Although, it hasn't been without its challenges.

Some game code “just can’t handle" the boosted frequencies of the PlayStation 5, he explained. He also added that boost is “truly massive," so games have to be tested on a “title-by-title basis."

And, of course...

Only PS4 and PS4 Pro were confirmed. The company didn't mention backward-compatibility with older generations.

Yep, people aren't happy.

"The PlayStation 5 doesn’t have any backwards compatibility. trash a** console."

But, there has been some good news.

Cerny reassured gaming buffs that "testing is going well." So, no need to panic just yet. Keep scrolling to take a look at the full PS5 spec.

Safe to say, the presentation sent Twitter into a gaming-induced frenzy.

Some made this point, however.

Seems some are adamant that the PS5 just doesn't cut it compared to Xbox. Well, you can't please everyone, can you?

Now, of course, the long-awaited full PS5 spec:
