PlayStation 5 Set to Release in Holiday 2020

After a lot of speculation and rumours, the PlayStation 5 has been officially and is set to release during the Holiday 2020 season.

That’s not all though, they’ve released a lot of information about the new controller that’s going to coming with the new console and about an exclusive or two for the PlayStation 5.

Let’s start off with the Dualshock 5. This time around, they’re switching things up with the internal motor as instead of using rumble technology, they’ll be using haptic feedback to give the players a more immersive feel when it comes to playing the games and the different types of vibrations that this will allow.

Besides this, they’ve also spoken about how the L2 and R2 triggers will be adaptive. This means that developers will be able to program the resistance felt when pressing the triggers to emulate the feel of drawing a bow and such. They’re going for much more immersive experience with the controllers and already have internally tested it and are quite pleased with it.

The controller will also have a bigger battery than the Dualshock 4 which means it will be heavy but not heavier than an Xbox One controller with Batteries. The controllers are also going to have better speakers but there’s no word about a headphone jack as of this moment.

Besides the controller, they’ve talked about a big exclusive that’s currently in development. They haven’t given out a lot of information about it but all we know is that Bluepoint Games, the team behind the Shadow of the Colossus remaster is working on it. Most bets are on it Demon Souls but another popular theory is that it’s going to be a remake of Metal Gear Solid 1.

Now that we have the official name of the Console and the release time frame, we’re excited to see more about Sony’s next-gen console and how they’ll take on the current market that’s slowly moving towards game-streaming.

The demo give to Wired with the PS5 devkit included a load test with Sony’s PS4 exclusive Spider-man. An average load time of 15 seconds was brought down to 0.8 seconds with help of an SSD streamlined to handle load times.

And then Official Playstation Magazine snagged a quote from s Sony spokesperson who said this: “An ultra-high-speed SSD is the key to our next generation. Our vision is to make loading screens a thing of the past, enabling creators to build new and unique gameplay experiences.”
