Sony has remained tight-lipped about its highly anticipated PlayStation 5, until now. During the CES 2020 press conference, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s President and CEO, Jim Ryan, revealed six previously unconfirmed “key” specs that we can expect on the new console.

As per a short announcement at the conference, we now know that the PS5 will comprise the following “future-proof technology”-enhanced elements: Ultra-high-speed SSD, 3D audio sound, advanced haptic feedback and adaptive Triggers, hardware-based ray tracing, and Ultra HD-Bluray.

The hope is that with this impressive new foundation, developers will be inspired to “create expansive worlds with new gameplay experiences that are more immersive than ever before in how they look, sound, and feel.”

According to Tech Radar, Sony’s new fleet of TVs have been made specifically with “upcoming next-generation gaming consoles” in mind. The made-for-PS5 sets will HDR offer 8K resolution, 4K resolution at 120fps high frame rate, and “fast response time via HDMI inputs.”

Sony’s Playstation 5 is expected to arrive during the 2020 holiday season. Discover everything we know about the next generation console here.
