CES 2020 is in full swing in Las Vegas. As every year, lovers of gaming and tech are champing at the bit to see what is in store for the year ahead. One of the most anticipated reveals was Sony’s new PS5.
Although Sony didn’t show off what the new PS5 will be looking like, we did get some details. Here’s everything we learned from Sony’s press conference at the Consumer Electronics Show currently underway.
Before we get to the new PS5, Sony has announced that it has sold over 5 million units of its PlayStation VR.
Sony also revealed that it has sold 140 million PS4 consoles. That makes the PlayStation 4 console the second best-selling gaming console in history behind the PlayStation 2.
New PS5 Logo
Instead of showing console gamers what the console will be looking like, we were shown the logo of Sony’s new console.
There’s nothing new about the new logo for the new console. Sony pretty much followed the same font style and design it has followed since the PlayStation 3.
Few New Details
Details regarding the new PS5 has been slowly trickling in since Sony announced that it will be launching a new console back in 2019. But nothing major has been revealed and also, no idea in terms of the new design.
We’re given a rather slow feed of information, with very details having been revealed during the CES 2020 press conference that Sony held.
Sony confirmed that the new PS5 will be released during the 2020 Holiday period, but no exact release date has been revealed. So things on the release font are still a little murky.
The company also confirmed some specifications for the new console, which we already knew.
- 3D audio sound,
- Haptic/adaptive triggers in the new PS5 controller,
- Ultra-high-speed SSD,
- Hardware-based ray tracing, and
- Ultra HD Blu-Ray.
Now we will have to wait some more for Sony to reveal more details about the upcoming new console. We will probably get more details from Sony in June when E3 is happening in Los Angeles.
