Many gamers spend their time at Vulkanvegas while waiting for the release of the PlayStation 5 in late 2020. While at it, why don’t we take the time to review what is in store for gamers for the new console?
So far, the PS5 design has already been released, and game developers already have a line-up of games that would come with it. Examples of these are the remake of Demon’s Souls, Spider-Man, and Resident Evil.
The console is taking a new stance, as this one is a vertical console, unlike its predecessors. The shell is white and is made of plastic. The engine body is black on the outside, and it makes a let V if viewed from afar, which seems to indicate that this is the fifth-generation console.
No one knows the dimension of the console, but there are talks that the PS5 is bigger than all the other previous four consoles. What does that mean? It probably means that it packs more power.
The Blue-Ray Drive
The PS5 will have an optical drive. This means that you can still insert discs and play videos from Blu-Ray discs. The good news is that this is modern enough to even play Ultra High-Definition Blu-Ray.
If you do not watch movies often, and you have no plans of buying game discs, the PS5 has a diskless version. It is the PS5 Digital Edition where it has a hard drive but not disc drive. On both versions, we can also expect that it is pre-loaded with apps like NetFlix or Disney+.
The PS5 Audio
There are talks about the quality of audio that the console is going to use. Some are speculating that it is the Dolby Atmos, but some said it is not likely.
The company promised that the PS5 will bring something new to the industry, so this audio software and hardware is a bespoke technology only available to Sony. Discussions with Sony’s execs seem to reveal that the PS5 is not going to use Dolby. They said that they have a newly-design engine that will process more than 32 audio objects at the same time.
The Dual Sense Controller
One of the best things that PlayStation brought to the gaming industry is its dual shock controller. This time, we are not going to have that. Instead, we will have what is called Dual Sense.
The new controller is black and white. The people behind the development said that the controllers will give players new gaming experience and that it will create new senses. The controller is made for virtual worlds, and the controller will have features like Tempest 3D AudioTech.
No one has ever tried or seen the console yet, but the company promises that it will revolutionize game experience. Dual Sense is wireless, and uses haptic technology, which can give players better vibrations according to what is happening inside the games.
The controller is wireless, and they say that it has a long battery life. The controller also has microphones, which means that the gamers can chat with their friends without the need for a headset.
The SSD Storage
Whether you buy the version with a disc drive or the diskless one, there is SSD storage in the unit. It is a better option than the HDD, and players can experience 100x faster load speeds to deliver the games. Because of this hard drive, the unit is capable of fast streaming and booting speeds.
The capacity is rumoured to be at 825GB. This is a lot of space, but this is great. New games today are eating up more and more data as they also get better. If this is not enough, you can expand the storage of the console. You can connect an external hard drive via USB, and your unit is going to read that drive.
The PS5 is surely going to be a work of wonder. Millions of players are now waiting for its release. The great thing about this new console is that Sony has also prepared accessories that come with it, like the wireless headset. The headset is called Pulse 3D, and it is designed similarly with the PS5’s colour scheme.
Also, there are talks that the PS5 is going to be compatible with VR devices. We do not know if Sony has created its own VR accessory. Nevertheless, with VR, players can really expect a new gaming experience—one that is going to their senses at a whole new level.
