New Unannounced PS5 Features
In the interview, which was translated from Japanese by Gematsu, Ryan briefly speaks about the newly released PS5 logo, which has attracted huge attention on Instagram this week. He then goes on to suggest that the PS5 will not be launched later in Japan (which was the case with PS4) and gives us some exciting insight into some unannounced goodies.
The interview, via Gematsu is included below.
On the Unique Appeals of PlayStation 5
Each time a new console is released, the processor and graphics improve. Those are enticing of course, but we need to have special appeals as well. We have already confirmed the use of an solid-state drive. Having load times that are next to nothing is a major change.
3D audio and the haptic feedback support of the controller are also things that, when you try them, you will be surprised at how big a change they are. Even just playing the racing game Gran Turismo Sport with a PlayStation 5 controller is a completely different experience.
While it runs well with the previous controller, there is no going back after you experience the detailed road surface via haptic control and play using the adaptive triggers.
But you know. There are still more unique elements for PlayStation 5 to come that separate it from previous consoles. The ‘bigger differences’ have yet to be announced.
Ryan also touched base on the PS5 release window, specifically for Japan, commenting:
I cannot comment on the timing of release or launch markets. However, the three-month delay for the release of PlayStation 4 in Japan was a decision that I was deeply involved in. There was reasonable ground for that decision, but these days I do not think that was a good idea. It was a decision made after much debate, but there may have been other options.
PS5 Shaping Up Nicely
With the newly released logo and re-confirmed feature set, the unannounced features and what we are sure will be a wealth of exciting exclusives ensure that Sony’s new console is coming along nicely indeed. Visit our PS5 hub for all the latest information about Sony’s new console.
