Sony confirms ‘PlayStation 5’ will arrive in time for ‘Holiday 2020’

Playstation 5 will feature a built-in camera

Sony has already spilled the beans on its next-generation console PlayStation 5. Sony has revealed the first tidbits of information for its next-generation console–most likely named  PlayStation 5, but that hasn’t been confirmed. Sony has already promised that the Sony Playstation 5(PS5) will support 8K graphics, 3D audio, super-fast SSDs, and backward compatibility with existing PlayStation 4 games. Recently, we got more details on the next-gen console as the console even features a built-in camera. And now, after months of speculation, Sony has finally confirmed that its next-generation console will be called the PlayStation 5, and arrive next year, launching in time for ‘Holiday 2020.’

Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan confirmed via a blog post that the official title for the upcoming console is PlayStation 5. Sony shared the details of its next-gen console with Wired on Tuesday. Here are the new details Sony shared:

PlayStation 5 storage has been designed in a way to make games boot up faster and reduce loading times as the console is equipped with a new solid-state drive. Also, we will see the new console featuring a new way of game installation which will offer users to install just the game’s campaigns(single0multiplayer) instead of installing the whole game.

“Rather than treating games like a big block of data,” system architect Mark Cerny told Wired, “we’re allowing finer-grained access to the data.”

Back in April, Sony showcased PS5 featuring much faster booting as compared to the PS4. Moreover, the PS5 will use ray tracing to enhance the graphics. We also know from earlier leaks that the console uses AMD’s Ryzen line and a GPU based on its Navi family. However, the most interesting feature is the usage of haptic feedback with the console’s controller. This will offer an improved sense of vibration while playing any game. To make actions look more realistic, both the left and the right trigger will use adaptive technology. We can also expect to see the controllers equipped with new speakers which will allow realism to creep in. Recently, Death Stranding’s BB was known to talk via the controllers.

Furthermore, Sony is also working on to make as the most eco-friendly console to date as they will use 0.5W only when in rest mode which is almost 8 W less than the current versions 8.5W. Moreover, PS5 is expected to arrive alongside a boosted PS5 Pro.
