Sony Confirms PlayStation 5 Name, Holiday 2020 Release Date. Sony has confirmed that its next-generation console will be called the PlayStation 5, and will launch in Christmas 2020, the Tokyo-based company has revealed. Among its improvements will be faster hardware, better graphics and a change to the way vibrations work in the controllers.
Chief among them is replacing the current rumble technology that Sony has been using since the original PlayStation for new haptic feedback technology that it promises will offer a “broader range of feedback.”
The big change that Sony is talking about today is a technology it’s calling “adaptive triggers,” which will go in the primary R2/L2 triggers on the PS5’s controller. According to Sony, developers will be able to “program the resistance of the triggers,” giving the example that you’ll be able to “feel” the increased tension as you draw back a bow or force you to push down with extra pressure if you’re driving through rough terrain. It sounds pretty similar to a Microsoft patent from earlier this year, which detailed a similar trigger system for a future Xbox controller. (It’s unclear if Microsoft is planning to incorporate it in its next-gen Project Scarlett hardware which is said will beat Sony PS5.)
As noted by Let's Go Digital at the time, the request only featured a brief description of the prototype, which said: 'configuration applied to/in electronic device'. It was categorised as Class 14.02, which was the same classification given to the PS4. And the patent for the PS4 was also registered by Mr Ootori, who oversees all of the commissioning, design and production of Sony's gaming products, including Playstation. The documents for both the new device and 2018's PS4 are remarkably similar, suggesting it could very well be the next incarnation of the popular product. Fans were stunned with the prototype design with a 'V' shape, which may refer to the Roman numeral V for five, claiming to be part of the PS5 design.
