PlayStation 5 is a continuation of the TV video console gaming series that started from PlayStation One, Two, Three, and currently at Four. The franchise is owned by Sony Interactive Entertainment, a Japanese firm that was introduced in 1994. The series has gone on to be top choice and leaders in the gaming industry over the last decade, and without doubts continues to satisfy it’s growing fan base with realistic video games, gaming options, quality graphic and efficient user controls.
Although the PlayStation brand continues to face off tough competition from other competitors such as Xbox, the company strives to stand tall amongst rivals, and the release of the new PlayStation 5 will surely see that their reign and dominance in the entertainment industry continues.
A patent filled by Sony with the World Intellectual Property Office as first spotted in August by LetsGoDigital, shows sketches of a “mysterious” electronic device which without doubts, looks like a Sony PlayStation. To further strengthen this claim, the patent and it’s design is said to belong to popular Sony engineer Yasuhiro Ootori, who specializes on PlayStation design.
The mysterious V-shaped device could be our first peek of what Sony PlayStation 5 looks like. The image shows an electronic gaming console with at least five USB ports (likely for DualShock controls), as well as a prominent disc tray.
Rumor has it that the PlayStation 5 console will be twice as powerful as the previous version, PlayStation 4. This could be the reason why the upper section of the PlayStation 5 console reveals large holes on all sides. This could suggest a cooling system to keep the console and processors from overheating while rendering highly dedicated graphics.
CPU and Storage
Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony PlayStation in an interview confirmed that the new PlayStation 5 console will use a custom AMD CPU based on third-gen Ryzen processors, a solid-state drive (SSD), and games will come on 100GB disks. The installation of games can be configured. This means that players might be able to install only a game’s single-player campaign, multiplayer element, etc., instead of the whole thing, according to their wish.
Meanwhile, the optical drive, doubles as a 4K Bluray player. Awesome, right? Don’t get too excited yet because there’s more to come!
Controller and Controls
More thrills on the way, it is. According to Sony, the the new PlayStation 5 will be shipped with a new controller.
The controller that should be expected will see the long-used rumble technology replaced with haptic feedback to allow a “greater range of feedback.”
Sony says that, not only will users be able to feel the difference between running into a wall in a raing game and performing a tackle on a football field, but they’ll also get a sense of textures when running through grass or moving through mud.
In addition, the new controller will come with adaptive triggers incorporated into the L2/R2 trigger buttons. The game’s developers will be able to “program the resistance of the triggers,” so users can feel the draw of a bow or when driving through rough terrain.
The controllers will also be charged by the use of Type-C USB.
Jim Ryan also revealed that the long awaited new Sony PlayStation 5 (PS5) will be launched early next year (2020), and will be made available for sales and distribution in the second half of the year.
