Sony PS5 Commercial
Sony has just released the first PlayStation 5 global ad spot, highlighting the console’s new features, including the haptic feedback sensation you you’ll feel from the DualSense wireless controller. Tempest 3D AudioTech lets you hear sound from all directions as the central character reacts to everything she hears, whether it be from the front, side, above, or behind her, while the tension of her bowstring can be felt through the controller’s adaptive triggers.

Sony PlayStation 5 Console Official Digital Edition
Finally, after months of speculation and several dev kit leaks, we get to see the official PlayStation 5 console. To be more specific, there will be two versions of the PS5 released at launch: a standard model with a Blu-Ray disc reader, and then the Digital Edition, which will not come with any disc reader. Both versions appear to come with one DualSense controller, which has adaptive triggers that can change the resistance to the player as necessary. Read more for two videos, including one of the entire 2-hour livestream event.

Sony filed a patent on June 20, 2019 for an ‘input device’ and it was just published on December 26, 2019 in the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) database. The patent sketches reveal a missing PlayStation button, along with two buttons on the left and two on the right rear. Both sides have a large movable button that you can be slid up and down, along with a smaller button that can be pressed. Read more for the patent sketches and additional information.

Godfall is the first PS5 game announced, and its developers, Counterplay Games, aims to reforge the fantasy ARPG-style loot progression and third-person melee combat into a whole new genre: The Looter-Slasher.

This game retains the desire for offense-oriented, mastery-driven combat, rewarding you with loot that then inspires your next set of character builds.
