Tech giant Sony has finally confirmed that the newest Play Station shall be known as Play Station 5.
According to reports, the company thought of changing the name of the console, similar to how Apple does their naming, beforehand. However, reports say that there’s really no reason to change something that’s working, apparently. Hence, we get Play Station 5.
Play Station 5 features a lot of new items and workings previously unseen in gaming consoles. According to reports, games from previous Play Stations may also be played using the Play Station 5. Furthermore, the dual shock sensors of the PS Controllers are in for a wild ride. During the Press Release of the Play Station 5, Sony CEO Ji Ryan mentioned 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 of a variety of textures when running through fields of grass or plodding through mud,”.
Accordingly, the triggers provide a more adaptive and human experience compared to the old dual shock system as in the old Play Stations.
However, Sony did not respond to any questions regarding the retail price of the new console.
Sony also reveals the release date for the Play Station 5
Aside from the name reveal, Sony also revealed that the Play Station 5 will be released in time for the 2020 holiday season.
