Sony says the PlayStation 5 is coming in 2020

2019-10-09 18:39 by


Sony President and CEO Jim Ryan revealed today that the company's next-generation console, known as 'PS5', will be launching in time for the 2020 holiday season. The new console will have improved graphics that use ray tracing, which is a new way of handling lighting effects in a game. The new tech will be supported by the PS5's GPU.

Game installation is expected to be configurable. The PS5 will allow you to install only parts of a game that you want to play. If, for example, you only want to play a game's single-player campaign, you only have to install that information. This will be helped by an updated user interface.

Another big area of improvement is the controller, formally known as the Dualshock 5. It will be using haptic feedback to more accurately translate the feeling of different types of movement. Characters will glide and slip across ice or slug through mud in a game and it will all come across, with different types of resistance in the sticks and the triggers, which are using something Sony calls "adaptive triggers." The controller will also have a USB-C connection, providing a faster, more sufficient means of charging.

Sony has also been developing a voice assistant of its own, whose name is unknown yet. The assistant would be able to respond to various game-related questions during gaming sessions, offering players clues and tips in real-time. That way, they wouldn't have to stop playing to browse the web for help. The assistant would also work on mobile phones via a companion app that would deliver stats about games, as well as live information about what's going on in a particular game. That's something that hasn’t been done before, and something other intelligent assistants can't offer.
