With the PlayStation 4 having been released six years ago, the question on all our minds was: when is the PlayStation 5 coming? Luckily, this week our questions have been answered. An exclusive from WIRED confirmed the PlayStation will be out, Christmas 2020.

WIRED broke the news back in April that there were developments on a new console, but it is only now the console has been confirmed to be the illustrious (creatively named) PlayStation 5.

What’s new with the PlayStation 5?

Jim Ryan, President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment took to a blog post to announce some of the new features that the PlayStation 5 would contain:

‘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.’

In the post, Ryan also wrote the PlayStation 5 would be released ‘in time for Holiday 2020’, suggesting its possible it could be released even earlier.

What are you most excited for about the release?
