Sony has officially confirmed its next-generation console PlayStation 5, which will be launching in time December holidays in 2020.
The PlayStation 5 Sony will include new features and improvements to controller haptics “ will deepen the feeling of immersion when you play games.” So what that means is that: 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.
Another exciting innovation is “adaptive triggers”, which have been incorporated into the trigger buttons (L2/R2).
Explained by Jim Ryan President & CEO: 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.
Sony also revealed that the upcoming console would use much less energy, with more innovation updates expected next year.
