Sony’s Playstation 5 to Be Released in 2020

Sony has just announced the official release date for the PS5: The holiday season of 2020. They also unveiled a few technical details about the upcoming gaming console: It will support 4K TV, will come with a SSD made specifically for gaming, almost eliminating all loading time, and will feature USB-C connectors. The Dualshock 5 controller will no longer have rumble technology and will instead feature haptics (like in an iPhone) for more “nuanced physical sensations.”

Ray-tracing acceleration in the GPU hardware … solid-state drive … 4K Bluray … an unlabeled matte-black doohickey that looks an awful lot like the PS4’s DualShock 4 … an improved speaker on the controller, the haptics … me really excited

Please note that the picture above is a mockup of the NDA-covered dev kit as commissioned by LetsGoDigital. We still do not know what the console will look like!
