Sony is planning on unveiling the PlayStation 5 later today and everyone is waiting in anticipation for the console giant’s reveal. With Microsoft being quite transparent about its upcoming Xbox Series X, PlayStation fans have been left in the dark as they wait for some new PS5 news.
It seems the wait will be worth it as an industry insider who has both development and technical experience with the PS5 claims it is “the most exciting hardware in 20 years.”.
I don’t know how many teraflops (lol) the PS5 has, but this is the sentiment I’ve heard from several technical-minded folks. One told me it was “the most exciting hardware in 20 years.” Will be fascinating to see how it stacks up to the impressive Xbox Series X specs https://t.co/q7i0ET95Yq

Billy Khan, the lead programmer at id Software and the man behind the latest Doom Eternal (read our review here), claims the console is simply awesome and that next-gen in general is going to be “lit”.
PS5 details will finally be made public tomorrow. My TLDR version – It’s awesome. https://t.co/OirGgju86s

In general, various sources claim that it won’t matter how many teraflops the console can output, rather the experience of the console and in turn, the games.
