Sony Will Unveil The PlayStation 5 By Christmas 2020


Sony Will Unveil The PlayStation 5 By Christmas 2020

‘Controllers’ vibrations will be upgraded to recreate different feelings’

Sony has revealed its plans to unveil the Playstation 5 in time for Christmas 2020. Disclosed by the Tokyo-based Sony company, the Playstation 5 is coming with faster hardware, enhanced controller vibrations, and better graphics.

Sony President, Jim Ryan, revealed the company plan on using the handheld controller to deepen the feeling of immersion when a player plays games.

A patent filed by Sony earlier this year looked suspiciously like a gaming console but was named the ‘Unknown Electronic Device’

Earlier this year, speculations grew over the company’s next console after it filed a patent for a boxlike unidentified electronic device.

Nevertheless, the PS5 will be supporting ray tracing – a digital technology that enables a more realistic recreation of lightning in the virtual 3D environments in video games.

While the above update is quite similar to those Microsoft promised for its own next-generation, Xbox (the Project Scarlett), Mr. Ryan added that the new PlayStation 5 controller would help make gaming very realistic on the new console.

‘There are two key updates with Playstation 5’s new controller. First, we’re embracing haptic feedback to replace the rumble technology found in the controller since the 5th generation of consoles.

With the introduction of the haptics, you’ll truly feel a broader range of feedback, hence crashing into a wall while in a car race will feel much more different than making a tackle on the football pitch’ Mr. Ryan wrote in a blog post on the Playstation Website.

Also adding that the controllers would be fitted with adaptive triggers incorporated into the L2 and R2 buttons, Ryan said: ‘Developers can now program the resistance of the triggers so that you can feel the tactile sensation of drawing a bow and arrow or perhaps accelerating an off-road vehicle through rocky terrain.’

While the company is yet to release any images of the console, Mr. Ryan stated that the company will be sharing more details about the console in months to come.
