PS5 Pro Is Powerful Yet Unnecessary

New rumors speculate that the PS5 Pro will be powerful but the system won't bring anything revolutionary to the table.

The PS5 Pro is currently one of the most talked about consoles of 2024. This speculative console is said to be Sony's attempt to upgrade the pre-existing PS5 console that will hopefully beat Microsoft's Xbox Series X/S console, which seems to be planned to remain the same. The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is just around the corner, new rumors suggest that the PS5 Pro may not be all that it is cracked up to be.

When the PS5 first launched in 2020, the console was a powerhouse in gaming technology and could stand toe-to-toe in terms of graphical fidelity with some powerful PC setups. Players, or those who had a chance to get their hands on the console, were taken back by what it was capable of. However, the console is nearly four years old with technology ever evolving. It would make sense for Sony to upgrade their system and if the rumor is true, they could be showing the console off soon, very soon.

If the PS5 Pro is meant to be a direct upgrade from the base PS5 system, then most likely the specs Sony is aiming for would at least be able to produce 60fps on almost all games available on the platform, this would technically make the console the most powerful console to arrive in the market. As impressive as that sounds, a new rumor suggests that 60fps is all the PS5 pro has to offer. Much like the previous generation when Sony revealed the PS4 Pro, which has greatly improved performance and power, gamers never really gravitated towards the console. As good as a power upgrade is, it's a tough selling point as even the base PS5 console, despite being four years old, still holds up to the 60fps standard of most titles on the platform with some exceptions.

Many have speculated that the PS5 Pro could include some of the potentially powerful new technology that Sony has patented recently, but this is highly unlikely as patents take years if not generations to implement. As it currently stands with all the information we know, the PS5 Pro may leave more to be desired, but without an official announcement, it is too early to say so and we will have to see what Sony will show off at CES.
