Sony PlayStation 5: What We Know So Far

New logo, new controller, and plenty of power

It's already been 7 years since the Sony PlayStation 4 was launched, and despite the many discussions of its death and how long this console has lasted, there's no denying it's still a powerhouse and a much desired console after so long.

But that's about to come to an end soon as the era of the PlayStation 5 draws near.

Sony had just revealed the logo of the PlayStation 5 at the recent CES 2020 event, bringing us closer to the much expected launch of the new console by Sony. They didn't reveal a lot of information from there, but a lot of information has already been revealed beforehand, so let's break down what we know so far about the much anticipated console.

WHAT WILL THE CONTROLLER BE LIKE?

Sony has shared some key details on what to expect from the PlayStation 5's controller, which we assume will probably be called the DualShock 5. Tradition and all.

The old rumble technology will be replaced with more sensitive haptic feedback, like you see on phones, providing more flexibility for developers. More interestingly, the controller will have L2 and R2 "adaptive triggers" that can be programmed for different levels of resistance, changing the kind of tactile feel you get from the play experience. That sounds pretty neat.

Sony told Wired that the PS5 controller will be a little bit heavier than the current DualShock 4, given the added tech, but it will be lighter than the Xbox One controller with batteries installed.
