Sony has officially announced their next console & it is called PlayStation 5, & it is set to be launched in the Holiday 2020. We don’t know about its price but Sony has shared details about its controller, its discs, ray tracing support, SSD, UI features, & more features PS5 will use.

PS4 cannot support backward compatibility with earlier versions of PlayStation games including PS1, PS2 & PS3 games. However, PS5 can support backward compatibility.

Xbox One S All Digital Edition does not contain a disc drive but Sony’s PS5 will include a disc drive. 1 disc is able to store 100 GB of data. PS5 will also support 4K Blu-Rays.

PS5 will use a new controller which is not officially named DualShock 5 yet. One of the objective of PS5 is to deepen the feeling of immersion when you are playing games, & the sense of touch will increase that immersion.

2 new features will be available in PS5 controller. The controllers currently use rumble technology which will be replaced by haptic feedback. The haptic technology will let you truly feel a wider range of feedback so crashing into a wall while driving a vehicle will feel different than making a tackle on the football field. Also the console will allow you to get a sense for a variety of textures when you are running through grass fields or plodding through mud.

The 2nd big change is using adaptive triggers, which can be used on the trigger buttons (L2 / R2). The resistance of the triggers can be programmed. For example, you can feel the sense of touch of drawing a bow & arrow.

Developers can setup the resistance of the L2 / R2 triggers so that you can feel the tactile sensation of drawing a bow & arrow or accelerating an off-road vehicle through rocky land.

PS5 will be able to support current PS VR headset along with move controllers.

PS5 will be good for the environment because it will save energy when it is placed in suspend / sleep mode. One million of PS5 players turning on the energy efficient feature will be able to save enough electricity to power one thousand US homes.

Also speaker of PS5 is upgraded, & it has a longer battery life.

Sony will not use hard drive in PS5 & it will be replaced by SSD which is much faster than hard drive. It will use a disc drive & its discs can store up to 100 GB of data. You need to install game before playing it but PS5 will ask if you want to just install a multiplayer campaign, or setup the complete game & then remove the single player part once it is installed.

A ray tracing acceleration is used in the GPU hardware.

The updated UI will let you see more details on what you can play at any time, along with details about what your buddies are doing.

PS5’s new UI will let you watch more information about friends’ games without opening the games. PS5 will be able to boot games quickly but you won’t need to boot the game to see what’s up.

FIFA & Call of Duty would be making its way to PS5 though their developers have not confirmed it yet.

Only 1 game is confirmed to be playable on PS5 & it is Final Fantasy VII remake. However, you can play any PS4 game on PS5 as the upcoming console supports backward compatibility.

Bluepoint Games is developing remakes including Shadow of the Colossus & Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, & they are developing a game for PS5 which they said is a big one.

The important details that are not released yet include exact launch date of console, price & how PS5 will look like. Also the upcoming console will be environmental friendly & it will support backward compatibility.
