Sony is going to join the “Playing for the Planet” association, consisting of gaming companies who want to help save the climate and protect the environment.
Since now the company will try to reduce the energy consumption of its consoles. Note that Sony has been working in this direction for a long time, but according to the latest data, the new product will leave the PS4 far behind. The company added that the next PlayStation will consume significantly less power in sleep mode, approximately 0.5 watts. For comparison, this indicator in the PS4 in the off state is 8.8 watts.
This means that the new product will be not only several times more powerful than the previous one but also more environmentally friendly. According to preliminary data, the presentation of the PS5 will be held in early 2020.
