Sony’s next generation of gaming console, the PlayStation 5 is one of the most anticipated pieces of technology right now. The announcement for PlayStation 5 is expected to be in 2019 followed by a release in 2020. One of the biggest questions on every tech enthusiast’s mind is how powerful will the next PS be. Well, some new leaks may have answered this, and to be honest, it’s quite impressive.


So the leaks mentioned above comes from the Inter BEE 2018 (International Broadcast Equipment Exhibition) event held in Tokyo a few weeks ago. In that event, Sony showcased its next-generation TV screen technology called CLEDIS or Crystal LED Display System. This system was shown on a massive 440-inch display featuring 8K at 120 FPS.

And this is where the PlayStation comes into the picture, the 440-inch display with 8K at 120 FPS was actually showing Gran Turismo being run on some kind of a PlayStation console, and people were quick to believe that it could actually be the next-generation PS5.

Here’s the footage that was displayed on CLEDIS system at Inter BEE 2018:

Interestingly, a few months ago, CEO of Polyphony Digital and the creator of Gran Turismo, Kazunori Yamauchi reportedly said in an interview with Finder, “It takes six months to create a single car. It’s over-specced for PS4 Pro. So we are building for future versions of the console rather than the one we see today. I think it would be no problem to run it at 8K even.”

Considering the statements from Yamauchi, the teaser that was seen on that CLEDIS display in Tokyo could actually be a demonstration of what PlayStation 5 will be capable of. There’s still no solid evidence for this, so everything that has been claimed should be taken with a pinch of salt, obviously until Sony finally comes out and gives out some definitive information regarding its next generation gaming console.
