The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2020 event was used by Sony to announce some information regarding its newest game console, PlayStation 5 (PS5).
In the annual event held in Las Vegas, USA, Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) President & CEO Jim Ryan officially showed the logo of the PS5 console.
At first glance, the logo looks quite similar to PS4’s logo. When viewed from the type of lettering (font), the design does look similar, coupled with a black background.
It’s just that the number ‘4’ in the PS4 logo is now replaced by the number ‘5’ which represents none other than the fifth-generation console, and complete with the iconic ‘PS’ logo on the front.
In addition to announcing the official logo, Ryan also said that the PS5 will come with a variety of brand-new features to enhance the experience in playing games.
Some of these include 3D audio output technology, super-fast SSD storage media, ray tracing graphics technology, to Blu-Ray media support with Ultra HD (4K) resolution.
There is also support for the PS5 controller which is equipped with haptic feedback and adaptive triggers features that had been revealed by Sony some time ago.
The haptic feedback feature is claimed to be able to provide vibrational effects more diverse than the ‘rumble’ technology available on previous generation consoles.
While adaptive triggers function to provide varying levels of resistance when the user presses the ‘L2’ and ‘R2’ buttons on the controller when playing different games.
“With the foundation (features), PS5 will spur developers to create games that are able to provide an immersive playing experience, both from visual, sound, to the experience of playing the game itself,” Ryan said, as reported by CNET.
However, Sony is still hiding the form of this PS4 successor console.
The Japanese tech giant also promised to unveil the detailed details related to the PS5, including its design, in the next few months before the console glides at the end of the holiday of 2020.
We look forward to it together.
