Default Playstation 5: Christmas 2020

https://blog.us.playstation.com/2019...-holiday-2020/

Since we originally unveiled our next-generation console in April, we know that there’s been a lot of excitement and interest in hearing more about what the future of games will bring. Today I’m proud to share that our next-generation console will be called PlayStation 5, and we’ll be launching in time for Holiday 2020.

These updates may not be a huge surprise, but we wanted to confirm them for our PlayStation fans, as we start to reveal additional details about our vision for the next generation. WIRED magazine covered these updates and more in a story that posted this morning.

The “more” refers to something I’m quite excited about – a preview of the new controller that will ship with PlayStation 5. 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.

To that end, there are two key innovations with the PlayStation 5’s new controller. First, we’re adopting haptic feedback to replace the “rumble” technology found in controllers since the 5th generation of consoles. 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 for a variety of textures when running through fields of grass or plodding through mud.

The second innovation is something we call adaptive triggers, which have been incorporated into the trigger buttons (L2/R2). 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. Game creators have started to receive early versions of the new controller, and we can’t wait to see where their imagination goes with these new features at their disposal.

While there’s much more to share about PlayStation 5 in the year ahead, we have plenty of blockbuster experiences coming your way on PS4, including Death Stranding, The Last of Us Part II, and Ghost of Tsushima. I’d like to thank all PlayStation fans for continuing the journey with us, as we embark on the future of games.

Nice! I'm glad they doing a slower reveal this time, rather than doing a big thing

I expected a November release, if it's released closer to Christmas than that it'll be carnage trying to get one.

Unless there's some insane launch titles, I'll hold off until January/February before getting one. The most surprising thing about that announcement is that Tsushima is still coming to the PS4, given the radio silence around it I assumed they were updating it for a PS5 release instead.

From what I hear, a lot of games toward the end are going to be forward compatible, so the PS5 wont suffer from a lack of games to play, and most PS4 games will be backwards compatible too.

Yep, I'll get it as soon as an exclusive that I really want drops... which is usually at least a year into a console's lifespan. I'm overhauling my PC next April so it'll be fine for anything that isn't PS-exclusive for years.

I actually played the first one a bit and didn't like it .

I'm also about 90% sure this exact discussion has happened before regarding Dishonoured 2
