"By combining speed, haptics and sound, we can further improve on the wonderful experience available on PS4, making the PS5 a truly next generation console by providing game experiences that were not possible before," Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida said in the presentation.

Rumor has it Sony will show off new PlayStation 5 games during a special event in early to mid-June, comprising mostly of first-party heavy-hitters. We may see new games like Horizon Zero Dawn 2, Gran Turisomo, and a sequel to Insomniac's Spider-Man revealed at the event, alongside new enhancements in a slate of backwards compatible PS4 games.

All of today's biggest publishers are optimizing and making games for next-gen consoles, from Ubisoft with Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legion, and a new Far Cry, to EA with Battlefield 6 and Capcom with Resident Evil 8.

PS5 architect Mark Cerny also promised a complete console teardown was coming soon, but no exact info has been outlined yet. Sony still plans to release the PlayStation 5 in 2020 and the clock is ticking on important details like pricing and game selection.

The PS5 will release in Holiday 2020, and it may cost $499.
