Sony uncovers PlayStation 5 logo, but no console design in sight

The PS4 now has 106 million users globally.

Fans of Sony’s PlayStation 4 and the entire lineup of Sony’s gaming products were dismayed to find out that the company did not release sneak peeks into the long awaited PlayStation 5 during its CES press conference earlier.

Ryan also reiterated some key hardware features of the PS5, which are already known to the public, including its 3D audio sound, a brand new controller with haptics and adaptive triggers, ultra-high speeds, hardware-based ray tracing and Ultra HD Blu-Ray.

“PS5 will inspire developers to create expansive worlds with new gameplay experiences,” the executive said, adding that Sony’s aim is to offer the biggest and best in content.

The launch of the PS5 will be just in time for the holidays of 2020, Ryan reaffirmed.

To cap off Ryan’s speech, Sony released an official new trailer for the PS5:
