Hello and welcome Into Gamers,
I am not one to just simply post rumour after rumour online from various sources. Okay, I may not be up there with many of the other sites, but I can assure you, I will only ever release factual information straight from the horses mouth. So here is the latest information for you to take a look through.
Jim Ryan President & CEO Sony Interactive Entertainment
Jim Ryan, President & CEO Sony Interactive Entertainment, has released a statement on the PlayStation Blog confirming the following in regard to PS5. It will firstly be called PlayStation 5 and released by holidays 2020 (okay, so that much I think it’s safe to say we all knew). Fine, so what else did he have to say? Well, the next thing he touched on was in relation to the PlayStation 5’s controller, confirming for us that haptic feedback will be replacing the rumble technology we all know and love so much. This is to allow a much wider range of feedback from the controller to your hands and senses, intended to deepen the feeling of immersion when playing current and upcoming titles. As an example of this, and I’m quoting here: “crashing into a wall in a race car feels much different than making a tackle on the football field.” He then goes on to say: “You can even get a sense for a variety of textures when running through fields of grass or plodding through mud.”
The next feature which combined with the above should truly make for an immensely impressive gaming experience, is what is being labeled ‘adaptive triggers!’ Adaptive triggers will be incorporated into the L2/R2 buttons and are designed to allow developers the freedom to actually program resistance of the two trigger buttons. Meaning? Well, when you pull back the drawstring of a bow, you will be able to feel the tension associated with that particular task. In another quote from President Jim Ryan, he confirms: “Game creators have started to receive early versions of the new controller, and we can’t wait to see where their imagination goes with these new features at their disposal.”
