    PlayStation 5 Will be Launching “In Time for Holiday 2020” and the New PS5 Controller Explained.

    Earlier today, Jim Ryan, the President, and CEO of SIE (Sony Interactive Entertainment) have announced on the PlayStation blog that Sony’s next-generation console will indeed be called PlayStation 5. The console is expected to arrive “in time for Holiday 2020”, Jim said.

    The brief announcement also shed some light onto the next-gen controller that’d come with the PlayStation 5, revealing two new features that’d greet players when the new console arrives.

    “One of our goals with the next generation is to deepen the feeling of immersion when you play games, and we had the opportunity with our new controller to reimagine how the sense of touch can add to that immersion. – Jim Ryan, President & CEO of SIE.

    One of the new features according to Jim, is the new ‘Haptic Feedback’ the new controller would be armed with, replacing the former ‘Rumble’ technology found in current controllers. With the haptics, players will be able to experience a broader variety of feedback on their controllers.

    “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. “

    The second feature announced was the “Adaptive triggers”, which have been incorporated into the L2/R2 trigger buttons.

    ” 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.” 

    Jim also said that game developers have started to receive the early version of the new controller to work on.
