Sony has confirmed that its next-generation console will be called PlayStation 5 (PS5). It will be available next year and will be launched in time for “Holiday 2020”. The new PlayStation will be not only a graphic upgrade but also a revision of some aspects of a console.
For starters, Sony is changing the way the PS5 will handle storage. The new SSD will speed up game startup and reduce load times. The console will manage the installation of games in a new way. Users will only be able to install the multiplayer or single-player campaign of a game instead of installing the whole game.
The company announced in a blog post that PlayStation 5 will feature a redesigned controller. It will include haptic feedback and improved tactile sensations, such as rumbling and shaking so that users can better feel what’s going on within a game.
“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 of a variety of textures when running through fields of grass or plodding through mud,” Jim Ryan, president, and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment wrote in the post. “One of our goals with the next generation is to deepen the feeling of immersion when you play games.”
Company declined to share the details and cost of PS5
