Sony Confirms The Playstation 5 Will Be Released In Time For Christmas 2020
President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, Jim Ryan, has revealed that the brand new Playstation 5 console will be out soon.
Not only is the PS5 coming to our stockings next Christmas, but it will also have a range of exciting new features. Although we don’t know all the deets on the new console, a recent patent suggests that the PlayStation 5 could feature a voice assistant, similar to Apple's Siri and Amazon's Alexa.
Sony Interactive Entertainment’s, Jim Ryan, stated:
“One of our goals with the next generation is to deepen the feeling of immersion when you play games, and we had the opportunity with our new controller to reimagine how the sense of touch can add to that immersion.”
Which sounds pretty amazing. Although I have to admit seeing as falling off a cliff in Minecraft makes my stomach flip, so maybe not for me.
Although there will be many new features and exciting technology, the new design for the PS5 has left some people a little confused with some twitter users likening it to a toilet seat. Nice.
The console will be going head to head with Microsoft’s next iteration of the Xbox, with its next-gen console the Xbox Scarlett. The new Xbox is also set to be released in time for the 2020 Christmas holiday period, so we’re looking forward to finding out more about the two consoles in the upcoming console wars.
