The PlayStation 5 event is coming next week on June 4. Sony plans to showcase next-gen games, but what else will it reveal?
Sony has finally given a date for when it next plans to talk about the PlayStation 5. The company is preparing “a look at the future of gaming” for at 1 p.m. Pacific time June 4. But what exactly should you expect to see at that event? Let’s take a closer look.
What we know about the PS5 so far is what’s inside the system and a few other details. Like Xbox Series X, PS5 features AMD hardware. This includes a Zen 2 CPU and a Navi GPU. The console also has a super-fast PCIe 4.0 SSD and a data-transfer architecture to match. But the acronyms and initialisms don’t really matter. What you need to know is that PS5 has significant more GPU power and a massive leap in CPU and data throughput compared to the current generation.
On top of all that, developers and publishers continue to praise the design of the PS5. Some have told GamesBeat that it is has a better architecture than any console in history. So studios may find it a joy to work with.
We also got a good look at the DualSense, which is the gamepad for the PlayStation 5. It has motorized triggers that can provide variable resistance depending on in-game context. Sony also included modern haptics to enable players to “feel” games.
