PlayStation fans will have a lot to celebrate come Holiday Season 2020, as the fifth generation of PlayStation console is set to release in time to mark the new year. While no official release date has been set, Sony has confirmed the general window of release and the (predictable) name of the new console: PlayStation 5.
The name might sound similar, but the console is rumored to have some pretty big updates. Along with the tentative release schedule, Sony offered up some new information about the upcoming line of PlayStation controllers. The first major change will be the inclusion of haptic feedback in the new controllers. This will replace the traditional “rumble pack” sensation that many controllers feature and allows for a greater range of feedback. Basically, you’ll be able to feel the difference in your controller when you’re firing a machine gun in-game versus crashing a motorcycle into a wall.
Additionally, Sony announced the new controllers will feature adaptive triggers. This will allow developers to customize the sensitivity of the L2/R2 trigger buttons to better emulate the weapon you are meant to be firing. For example, you will encounter more resistance when using the trigger to draw a bow taut than you will when firing a pistol. Sony is hoping these features will make gameplay more immersive, and what the company is teasing certainly sounds interesting.
