Sony is slowly releasing details about the new PlayStation 5. Here’s everything what we know about the PlayStation 5.
When will be the launch party of the PlayStation 5?
Sony has confirmed that the PlayStation 5 will be launch “in time of Holiday 2020.”
On the basis of guess we think PlayStation 5 should launch sometime in November 2020.
The New PlayStation 5 Controller: DualSense
A gaming console controller impacts how you have interaction with everything in a game, so new controller functions are always exciting. Sony has stated that it desires to “deepen the feeling of immersion when you play video games,” and the new controller displays this.
The brand new Playstation 5 controller is known as the DualSense. Whilst it doesn’t have the Share button visible on the DualShock 4, Sony has replaced this with a brand new Create button. It plans to unveil extra information about how this works in the future.
You’ll also notice that this controller includes a light bar similar to that seen on the DualShock 4. But, the DualSense has the light bar on either side of the touchpad, as opposed to sitting at the top of the controller. It also makes use of a modern USB-C connection for charging.
Will PlayStation 5 Be Backwards Compatible With PlayStation 4 games?
Mark Cerny also confirmed that the PlayStation 5 will be backwards compatible with PlayStation 4 games, as the two consoles are built upon similar internal architectures. This will be a happy news for those who were disappointed by the PlayStation 4's lack of backwards compatibility with PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation 1 games.

Adaptive triggers are the other new development in the PlayStation 5 controller. These permit game developers to alter the resistance of your controller triggers (the L2 and R2 buttons) primarily based on in-game events.

The new system will have faster solid-state drive (SSD) storage. As you likely already recognise,SSDs have no moving components, so, it's a good way to load data a lot faster than a traditional hard drive.
