It’s Saturday morning and that can only mean one thing – yep, it’s time for another of our Weekly News Roundups, where we bring you all the news from the last week and pop into one handy article. And by some massive coincidence, here it is:

Sony releases the first details on the PlayStation 5

In an interview with Wired this week, Sony’s Lead System Architect, Mark Cerny, revealed a few details about the next-gen console which is expected to release sometime next year.

So will the PlayStation 5 have backwards compatibility? Yes, it seems it will, though only with PS4 titles and there will be an emphasis ‘on providing enhanced hardware-based audio solutions to keep the sound in tune with the upgraded visuals.’

The PlayStation 5 will also be the first Sony console to house an SSD (solid state drive), rather than a mechanical hard drive. For the more technical details, you’re better off checking out Stew’s original post – he does a far better job of explaining it than I ever could.

Ubisoft donates 500K to help the Notre-Dame restoration

Assassin’s Creed: Unity is also free to download on PC for a limited time and is available via Uplay or the Ubisoft Store.
