Featuring a new controller with haptic technology and adaptive triggers.
"You will fee the tension in the triggers when pulling a bow" Now that is a good feature
It would be cool if it's something you could manually change in settings too. Make the triggers tighter and require less of a push to fire for competitive shooters for example.
Should make for some interesting play throughs. This is a game changer.
Would be cool in my opinion if for shooters, developers were to tie in the trigger pressure into the guns' rate of fire so that each gun would have a different feel when pushing the trigger button.
I cant wait to buy ps5 day one. So many innovations that will enhance gaming experience
Knew it was holiday 2020. We should expect a February 2020 PS event like they did with PS4. 2nd time MS and Sony will launch in the same time frame. Great for us gamers all around, stoked. Hopefully they show off the new controller as well.
Think it's a lame reveal.. PS4 reveal was a much more wow moment.. Came out of nowhere.
I would assume it could be used by devs to make certains guns have a longer or shorter pull time as well as different rumble variances.
That's a cool thought. Wonder if they could simulate trigger break for shooters?
Sounds like it works very well (from the Wired article): "Combined with an improved speaker on the controller, the haptics can enable some astonishing effects. First, I play through a series of short demos, courtesy of the same Japan Studio team that designed PlayStation VR's Astro Bot Rescue Mission. In the most impressive, I ran a character through a platform level featuring a number of different surfaces, all of which gave distinct—and surprisingly immersive—tactile experiences. Sand felt slow and sloggy; mud felt slow and soggy. On ice, a high-frequency response made the thumbsticks really feel like my character was gliding. Jumping into a pool, I got a sense of the resistance of the water; on a wooden bridge, a bouncy sensation." https://www.wired.com/story... Edit: looks like they are two separate features, haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, but both help to increase immersion.
That sounds AMAZING!!, I'm really, really, really excited about Next-Gen, much more than from the last one to this one.
I was wondering how Sony was gonna improve on their controller. Now I am totally excited about it.. if they improve the battery life , it will be a perfect controller.
@jaymacx "if they improve the battery life , it will be a perfect controller." i never understood this complaint. i bought a $20 charging docking station and two controllers. they are always charged. one gets low i place it on the docking station, grab the other one and that's it. the console also came with a charging cable that reaches 7 ft. so yeah
@sampsonon That's nice. When it works for you I guess. I have 2 controllers as well with one always charging so I can switch if it dies. The original one that came with my system dies in like 3 hours. The other one I can play for days. Improved battery would be great. I hope they leave the touchpad off maybe that'll help
@sampsonon What's so hard to understand about people wanting a longer battery life? I would have to spend $50 to match the convenience you have. I think it's safe to assume that most people would rather have controllers last as long as they did last gen where you could go 1-3 weeks before having to charge Other than that for me, the controller's perfect. Anything beyond a better battery is a bonus for next gen
Yeah. Haptic stuff can be pretty impressive. It can take some getting used to since we've all trained to be used to a single resistance on a controller. This is much more controllable than just changing the update variable in code, as it gives a direct tactile feel to the user, as opposed to an annoying change to what you get used to in the game itself @Sampson I just use my phone charging cord and keep playing with the same controller. It's on the table next to my couch anyways
I think the speaker is underrated and underused. You could do some kool s#it with that
I'll be using the same cord I used to charge my phone just like I was the beginning of this gen. Type C is pretty much the most used charge method in the house
"While a number of studios already had their PS5 devkits, the controller prototypes began rolling out much more recently, and no one is ready to name specific titles they're developing for the PS5. "We're working on a big one right now," says Marco Thrush, president of Bluepoint Games, which most recently worked on last year's PS4 remake of Shadow of the Colossus. "I'll let you figure out the rest."" Demon Souls for PS5 confirmed!!!!!
It could be of JRPGs like Legend of Dragoon, Metal Gear Solid or anything else. Demon Souls is easy task for software to handle it by their own.
@InKnight7s Don't say things like Legend of Dragoon to me, don't play with my heart that way :(.
Right Hyped asf I love when new consoles release caaaanttt wait! Console gaming for life!
This could be a game changer if done right. Imagine a game in the same vein as Heavy Rain or Detroit implementing this feature in certain scenarios -- like having to push the trigger hard enough in order to perfectly execute some actions.
Just please at least double the battery
Horizon 2 feature confirmed lol
And USB C !
This is the evolution to Nintendo's HD rumble that I've been wanting.
So they are going to do what the Xbox One controllers have done since launch?
yeah. I love the feature and hopefully more devs start using it
No lol not even close, the xbox controller has haptic triggers, that's it.
That is amazing and the new "rumble" feature sounds grear as well. I can't wait to hold one in my hands.
I know right 😊
Sounds like a terrible idea.
That would be sick.
I really hope they show exclusive games at Sony press conference.
Ghost of Tsushima is still on PS4 just as The Last of Us: Part II is boys! Where are the haters now?
also FFVIIR :) my most wanted game ever.
@sssb mine too bro
Yes where is Krib.
FF7R and the last of us 2. Perfect way to end a generation!
God of War 5 and HZD sequel will probably be announced next E3.
Definitely hzd maybe too soon for God of war but I wouldn't complain. Be good to see something from insomniac and others. I would like new ips
Should be interesting to see how PS5 launch titles utilize the new features on the controller, especially the 1st part games. Killzone Shadowfall and The Playroom at PS4 launch were alot of fun to mess around with the new camera/controller input.
Sorry but can anyone tell me what holiday 2020 means? I assume this is a US thing? Is it June?
It means the run up to Christmas were people usually buy a lot of stuff. Especially games and games consoles for their kids.
It's US term for anywhere between October and December generally.
Oh okay. Cool, thanks.
My new wife. Sorry ps4
You DOG! 😆
I'm going to show up to your games room with the Cheaters film crew.
Nice, day one!
Day zero dawn.
Horizon Infinite Dawn?
Ain't no way I'm buying another PS launch console. They are always riddled with issues.
wut? Still using my launch PS4, zero issues.
Lol, I had a day one Ps4 and nothing EVER happened to it until I traded it in for a Ps4 Pro.
Same here. And the guy i sold it to is a friend, so i know its still kicking
agreed, and then got rid of that Pro for a 500 million Pro. I haven't had issues with any of my consoles actually unless you go back to my launch 360.
I used to repair consoles, and while I know they had issues, I wouldn't say any of them were widespread, or beyond standard fail rates for electronics. I had an issue with the ps1 laser where you'd have to turn the system upside down, then learned to tweak the laser, which is what led me to start repairing consoles as a side job. Most issues were confined to one or two revisions, and it wasnt always just the launch ones. The ps2 had more issues with version 3-5, but 1&2 and 6-8( next to last before the super slim) were all great Other than that, all my launch consoles worked great for years. Ps4 did have the rubber come off the analog stick, along with a 2nd controller I brought. Sony would have replaced it under warranty, but I was lazy and never made a claim in time
I had a day 1 PS4 and it lasted me all this time. Only reason why I got rid of it was because I wanted that Spider-Man PS4 pro. Lol
I have a pro and the original and both still run like new.
That was last gen.
Unfortunately I have to agree with you. I bought my PS1 and PS2 one or two years after launch and never had any problems. But my PS3 (and my cousins PS3) which were bought on launch month both had the YLOD, so I will always wait at least 1 year before buying a new console.
Never with my phat PS3 until I jailbroke it which end up running like a jet pack lmao
I usually prefer second iterations of most consoles but just for the quietter and smaller size factors... Riddled with issues? What are you even talking about?
Maybe he ment to say xbox 360.
Whatever your issues were , playstation has never had an above normal failure rated console.
The PS3 had reported failure rates around 10%. No where near the 360 but still what I'd call above normal.
10% isnt considered above average for electronics. 3-4 years into life average is 15% fail rate for consumer electronics according to squaretrade.
