A recent article from IGN gives us an insight into the new updates that come with Sony’s newest console. It mentions AV Watch, a Japanese publication that was allowed to preview the PS5 and gave an inside preview into Sony’s new updates to the PlayStation.
First of all, they mention that the confirm button, traditionally the ‘X’ button in North America and Europe and the ‘O’ button in Japan, has now been standardized by Sony. The confirm button will now universally be the ‘X’ button. Though the controls could always be varied in the options menu, Sony has probably decided that there needs to be some consistency.
Secondly, the PS5 will be significantly less noisy when playing games. We’re all aware of how loud the console can get when the fan starts whirring like a powering up jet engine. Well we don’t need to worry much about it now. Additionally, the DualSense controller buttons make a lot less noise than the PS4 DualShock 4.
Thirdly, the SSD shortens the annoyingly long load times.
The PS5 is set to be released in the U.S. on November 12. It will be released as both a Standard and Digital Edition; that is to say with and without a disk drive. The Standard is priced at $499 USD, while the Digital Edition is priced at $399 USD
