News regarding Sony’s upcoming PlayStation 5 console has begun to come out, with Sony showing the system’s new logo at CES 2020.
Leaks have also been released showing the dev kits, as a cleaner at a developer snapped some pictures of the device. Unlike the boxy Xbox Series X, the dev kit for the PS5 is more obtuse, featuring a “V” look to it with a small disc slot on the bottom left. The DualShock 5 controller has also been snapped with the dev kit, showing a bulkier controller that’s awfully reminiscent of the DualShock 4. The DS5 also brings a raised touchpad as well as the adjustable tension of the triggers, which Sony has officially mentioned.
We’re still waiting on official word from Sony on the technical specs on the console, but we do know that it will feature hardware-based ray tracing technology and include a 4K Blu-Ray drive. The exact processing power isn’t known, but we expect it to be on par with the Series X, which is said to have 12 teraflops of power.
The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are slated for release during the holiday season this year (THIS YEAR!). We’re going to be keeping a close eye on these consoles (and controllers), and will let you know as we learn more.
