What do we know About PS5 Pro?

The former claims that Sony is working on a newer, better-specs, and costlier model of the PS5. It will be known as the PlayStation5 Pro. After that, rumors about Sony starting pre-registering users for the same.
The rest of the things are purely based on rumors and speculations from tech-houses and other media outlets.
PS5 Release Date Expectations

However, there is still no official announcement about the release date of the PlayStation5 Pro from Sony’s end.
What are the Specs of PS5 Pro?
Currently, there are no clues about the specifications of the PS5 Pro. But, it may have the most powerful processor available in the market along with a beastly GPU.
No one would be surprised if the PS5 Pro boasts Zen 4 architecture CPUs and RDNA 3 architecture GPUs. It is also expected to target the 8K Gaming aspect which is a significant upgrade from the already fabulous 4K that the PS5 offers.
The console may also offer at least 300W TDP, VR (commonly known as PSVR 2), and a less bulky design. The PS5 is still criticized for its design and Sony may keep the feedback in mind while developing the upgrade.
What will be the cost of PS5 Pro?
You may have already got an idea by going through the specifications that the PS5 Pro is going to be a really expensive console. The PS5 is already expensive at $399 for the digital edition, and $499 for the disc drive one.
Now, the PS5 Pro will be an upgrade for that. Thus, the price or cost of the PS5 Pro could soar as high as $600 to $700. It’s going to be a burly purchase for any gamer.

Sony is expected to start pre-registrations to buy a PS5 Pro on their site soon. According to the website, people interested to sign up for the Pro version of PlayStation5 can sign up for an invite whenever they’ll be available as the company will have a limited number of these consoles.
The invites will be sent, only to eligible users, starting from early-to-mid 2023, and the PlayStation 5 Pro shipping might start from late 2023.
