PlayStation 5 will have unique features that will set it apart from the consoles of the past. This is what stated Jim Ryan (CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment). He was in an interview with Business Insider Japan.
“Every time a new console arrives, the processor and graphics improve. Of course these are attractive elements, but we must also have special features. We have already confirmed the use of a solid-state memory unit. In addition, having almost zero loading times is a big change”.
“3D audio and the controller’s tactile feedback support are also elements that, after testing, will leave you surprised at how big the changes are. Even just playing Gran Turismo Sport with a PlayStation 5 controller will be a completely different experience. It will no longer be possible to go back after having experienced the haptic controls and playing with adaptive triggers. There are still other unique elements of PlayStation 5 that will distinguish it from previous consoles. The “biggest differences” have yet to be announced”.

During the interview, the CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment also spoke of the similarity between the logos of PS4 and PS5 stating that the choice to keep the same design comes from the desire to give a sense of consistency to all PlayStation brand products. Finally confirmed the support for PlayStation 4 also following the debut of the new console.
“There are over 100 million PlayStation 4 owners—there is a community there. We have an obligation to keep them happy, interested, and absorbed [in PlayStation].”
Please note that PlayStation 5 will debut at Christmas 2020. Godfall will be the first game available for the upcoming console. “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 after much debate, but there may have been other options.” says Jim Ryan.
