PlayStation 5 To Launch End 2020, Has Better Performance & Sensory Feedback On Controllers

PlayStation 5 Has Haptic Feedback & Adaptive Triggers For Immersive Gameplay

Have you been playing your PlayStation 4 (PS4) for the past 6 years and thought to yourself when is the PlayStation 5 (PS5) coming out? Well, the announcement is finally here.

According to Wire, Sony announced on Tues (8 Oct) that they will be releasing the new PS5 at the end of 2020.


In the announcement, Sony said that the PS5 would include immersive features such as ‘adaptive triggers’ and ‘haptic feedback’ to make the gaming experience for players more realistic.

Immersive features to make gaming realistic

To put it in simple terms, adaptive trigger is something that is incorporated into the PS5’s controllers and gives players with a distinct tactile experience when gaming.

For example, when you are playing Horizon Zero Dawn and you are pulling your bow back, you will be able to feel the tension of drawing the bow on your controller.


Haptic feedback, on the other hand, is a feature that will bring players close to the action of the game.

This will make walking in sand feel slow and sloggy and allows you to feel the resistance on the thumbsticks when jumping into the water.

For example, if you are playing Need For Speed: Heat on the PS5 and you crash your car into the wall, you will be able to feel the impact of the crash from your controller.


Other features PS5 will have

The Wire also reported that the PS5 controller looks almost identical to the PS4 controller.

However, it will be using USB-C cables, has better speakers and bigger batteries compared to its predecessor so you don’t have to charge it as often.

The PS5 will also include ray-tracing acceleration in the graphics processing unit (GPU) and also a new super-fast solid-state disk (SSD). This means better graphics and shorter loading times.

There are many unanswered questions such as how much storage will there be or what the PS5 will eventually look like.

We hope that Sony will make an announcement soon to answer these questions so we can put our curious minds at rest. And please, if possible, bring the release date forward!
