Sony has finally slated the PlayStation 5 for next year.
We’re closely approaching to the next generation of hardware for Sony and closing the doors on the beloved PlayStation 4. While the PS4 has brought us lots us of great original titles and iterations of titles throughout it’s lifetime, with more to come such as Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding next month.
Sony has finally announced the next generation of the PlayStation line is coming next year. The PS5 is coming Holiday 2020 according to the official announcement of the PlayStation blog.
According to the post via in an exclusive through Wired, the next DualShock controller will be ergonomically similar to the DualShock 4, but will offer a more immersive experience with the controller response. It will feature haptic feedback (think similar to the HD rumble feature found on the Nintendo Switch) to give players a closer experience to the game. So crashing into a wall in a racing wheel will feel much different than making a tough tackle in a football game.
The second feature for the next DualShock controller is also something Sony is implementing called “adaptive triggers” incorporated into the L2/R2 trigger buttons. With this feature, developers will be able to implement the resistance of these buttons, giving once again, a more closer experience.
More news should follow soon, but for now the focus still remains on the PS4 as Sony still has one last major holiday season left to bank in before PS5 rolls in next year, presumably before Black Friday in the United States (November 29, 2020) gets to into play.
