The PlayStation 5 is an upcoming video game console and Sony's successor to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro home consoles; the name PlayStation 5 was confirmed by Sony on October 8, 2019, and is planned to be released Holiday 2020.
Features[edit | edit source]
- Backwards compatibility with PlayStation 4 titles, as well as with PlayStation VR. It is unknown if the DualShock 4 or other PlayStation 4 accessories will be backward compatible.
- AMD 8-core 16-thread "Zen2" 7nm-process CPU based on the third generation of Ryzen processors
- AMD Radeon RDNA "Navi" series graphics, with ray tracing and 8K resolution support
- 4K @ 120 Hz refresh rate, 8K Support
- AMD 3D Audio
- Internal SSD (interface & capacity unknown)
After the PlayStation 5 name reveal in October 2019, Sony confirmed that haptic feedback and adaptive triggers would feature on the new, unnamed controller, while Wired confirmed the following additional features:
- 4K UHD Blu-ray support
- Video games will use 100 GiB BD-ROM discs
- GPU-accelerated ray tracing support
- Modular support for software installations (i.e. single-player and multi-player content treated as independent software packages)
- Revamped UI to focus on real-time data and suggestions
- USB-C to be used on the controller, with a battery capacity and overall weight bigger than the DualShock 4
On April 7, 2020, Sony revealed that the controller for the PlayStation 5 would be named the DualSense Controller. Confirmed features were Haptic Feedback, Adaptive Triggers for the L2 and R2 Buttons, and a Built-in Microphone (and Microphone Mute Button); the Share Button is now replaced with the Create Button, and the Lightbar is now next to the Touchpad. The previously-round PlayStation Button is now shaped like the PlayStation logo. The controller will still use an internal rechargeable battery, like the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 controllers. The controller will also have Headset support.
