Sony’s Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan confirmed The ‘PlayStation 5’ name in a statement on Tuesday. Jim Ryan revealed that the PS 5 will launch in time for the holiday season in 2020. He also revealed some details about the new controller coming with the gaming console.
Particularly, the new PS5 controller will come with a brand new haptic technology. This will replace the “rumble” technology that was found in previous controllers.

Another new feature that is coming to the controller is what the company calls adaptive triggers that have been integrated into the L2/R2 trigger buttons.
In this new feature, the game developers will be able to program the resistance of these trigger buttons so that users feel a different tactile sensation when drawing a bow. Also, while the varying levels of resistance between a machine gun and a shotgun.

It could be possible to install a part of the game instead of installing the entire game at once. Such as the multiplayer campaign while the single-player campaign can be installed at a later time.
We still do not know what will be the look of PlayStation 5, but Jim Ryan has given a good amount of information to keep us anticipating for a while longer. Till then, Jim Ryan wants everyone to look forward to upcoming PS4 titles like The Last of Us Part II, Death Stranding and Ghost of Tsushima.
