So... November 2020 (or there abouts) is when it might launch is my guess. I was guessing March since FF7 remaster launches then, & we were thinking Sony might jump the gun ahead of M$ in launching it early.. But, guess not. lol

I never expected it to be early 2020 just because from a business view the holidays make more sense. Just look at how many games tend to come out at that time.

I wonder whether Sony will do the full reveal at E3 or if they're going to use an event of their own for it. Hmm

I fully expect a 'State of Play', though when Nintendo introduced the Switch it just dropped a new video advertising it.. So who knows. lol

Surprised Sony didn't drop this news in a SoP. It would've been the first time they actually made a surprise announcement that was notable.

Some of my friends on twitter aren't impressed;

Also, "key people stepping down like Shawn Layden before the PS5 even released fills me with a little doubt. The system also does not seem all that different from the PS4 Pro at the moment either."

Ah, late next year then. That's alright. Hope...wait nope, that's usual thing to say until last year. Er, hope they'll show it off at an event, or perhaps in a finally worthwhile State Of Play.

No idea what haptic is. *checks*
Ah, responding to touch. Also unsure what they mean for the L2/R2 buttons. Hm. No longer a push/press button then.

Haptic feedback is very similar to HD rumble in Switch controllers. I would even say they may be the same thing but Sony obviously don't want to outright reference Nintendo.

The L2/R2 buttons will basically have resistance to them now. Think of it like pushing down but it might feel tougher because it's mimicking resistance a trigger on a gun would give in reality.

As for step downs, I doubt it has anything to do with how well the PS5 will be. All Sony has to do is replicate the PS4's successes into the PS5 and look into adding new successes on top of it and they can't really fuck it up. In terms of hardware, a PS5 will be essentially a PS4 Pro Pro, but the SSD will be a notable change to both load speeds and game sizes (less duplication of assets on the drive means more room for unique content or smaller games) and a unified hardware means developers don't need to make games that run on PS4's and Pro's, they can now go back to focusing on one set of specs (multi-platform putting things up in the air but for first party that isn't a concern) and do more with their games. Dual disc games might only be becoming a thing again because of how much data has to be duplicated to keep load speeds decent on a HDD, and those earlier reports of the load time differences between PS4 Spider-Man and PS5 Spider-Man shows how much developers are needing to compensate or be held back by the current consoles.

I'm really excited actually. But most probably won't end up buying it as soon as it comes out.

Yeah, it'll take a lot to make me buy it day one. I'll probably wait for either a price drop or for the library of games I want for it to be big enough that it doesn't spend too much time collecting dust from waiting for new games.

Sony's internal business as of late has been in a state of restructuring for a while now, from changing over their studio focus with their renamed "Sony Interactive Entertainment" unit, and obvious leadership shifting with Layden and Kaz Hirai stepping down. Sony, as a whole, needed to place a lot of their focus on the PlayStation brand because a lot of the other company's divisions aren't doing so hot.

This new gen has me interested in seeing the kinds of advances it'll make. I'd say since the shift from generation 6 to 7 (GCN/XBOX/PS2 to Wii/X360/PS3), it's been quite incremental on the dramatical end of the spectrum, and by that I mean nothing has been really "game-changing" since then. It's been harder and harder to make technology that incredibly different that you think to yourself "Man, I have to get that because what I have now is just trash in comparison". This 9th generation seems to be on the path of "quality of life" improvements, more than anything else, which isn't bad. I'd love to see a world where load times are non-existent. Grin

Well you can play PS4 games on it as I've read so that's a positive thing.

True. But I wouldn't pay for a new console just to play the games I can already play, especially if a price drop were to happen before enough PS5 games come out that I would want to have.

I always wait a year or two before I get Sony's next gen console; mostly because I don't have the money for the next gen system day one & save back to get it.

Yeah, that would be pretty stupid. Tongue

But I'd probably wait a year after launch date. It's not like I game as much as I used to, so my demands have been dramatically lowered. Tongue
