The upcoming launch of PlayStation 5 is already a major reason for happiness for gamers worldwide since it will be a considerable upgrade for the previous PlayStation 4. Sony launches the exciting and surprising news that the successor of PlayStation 4 will arrive in 2020, confirming a lot of rumors.
Jim Ryan is the one who made the big announcement, stating that PlayStation 5 will be released during holiday 2020, same as Xbox Scarlett (aka Xbox 2). It’s exciting to see the two giants in gaming from the US and Japan, Microsoft and Sony, respectively, going toe to toe in the markets once again.
The name will be PlayStation 5
There had been some debates regarding the name of the future console, but Sony confirmed that it would be officially called PlayStation 5. Of course, you are free to call it as you wish, even “my reason to skip work”.
Ryan revealed to us in a blog post that even the controller of PS5 will be greatly improved:
“There are two key innovations with the PlayStation 5’s new controller.
“First, we’re adopting haptic feedback to replace the ‘rumble’ technology found in controllers since the 5th generation of consoles.
“With haptics, you truly feel a broader range of feedback, so crashing into a wall in a race car feels much different than making a tackle on the football field.
“You can even get a sense for a variety of textures when running through fields of grass or plodding through mud.
“The second innovation is something we call adaptive triggers, which have been incorporated into the trigger buttons (L2/R2).
“Developers can program the resistance of the triggers so that you feel the tactile sensation of drawing a bow and arrow or accelerating an off-road vehicle through rocky terrain.
“In combination with the haptics, this can produce a powerful experience that better simulates various actions.
“Game creators have started to receive early versions of the new controller, and we can’t wait to see where their imagination goes with these new features at their disposal.”
Another interesting aspect for the new PS console is that games will come on discs of 100GB that will be inserted into a drive that also acts as a 4K Blu Ray player. Rumors say that PlayStation 5 will run Virtual Reality games and 8K graphics due to third-generation AMD Ryzen processor and a GPU based on AMD’s Radeon Navi.
