Finally, what all gaming fans around the world have been waiting for. Sony has officially announced the PlayStation 5 after months of secrecy. And it’s set to succeed the PlayStation 4.
The PlayStation 5 was unveiled during an online launch event scheduled for June 11, 2020. During the event, Sony announced the list of games that will be featured on the console. The games are Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Project Athia, Gran Turismo 7, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, Resident Evil Village, NBA 2K21, Deathloop, Hitman III e.t.c. Also, GTA V which is scheduled to be re-released for PS 5 will come with additional new contents, visual upgrades, technical improvements, and performance enhancement.
Two types of PlayStation 5 was unveiled by Sony; a standard edition and a digital edition with no optical drive. The digital edition is thinner with a more symmetric design. Also, it doesn’t feature the 4k Ultra HD Blu-Ray, unlike the standard edition. Other notable features are Ray tracing and an Ultra-High Speed SSD.
For the controller which is known as “DualSense Controller”, it features adaptive triggers, haptic feedback, motion sensors, a built-in microphone, USB port, an integrated speaker, a headset jack, 3D Audio, an HD camera for motion tracking, a new pulse 3D wireless headset, and a media remote box where the console acts as a Blu-ray player or streaming box.
