The PS5 logo was revealed at a Sony CES 2020 event on Monday, where PlayStation boss Jim Ryan promised fans that the next-gen console will deliver “the biggest and best” in content.
In a brief segment of the show, Ryan unveiled the official logo and said the platform holder will reveal more details on the console and its games “in the months ahead.”
“We’ve announced several key features of the PS5 hardware, which has been engineered with customisations that will truly differentiate the platform, including futureproof technology such as ultra-high speed SSD, 3D audio, Ultra HD Blu-Ray and a brand new controller with haptics and adaptive trigger buttons,” Ryan said.
“With that foundation, PS5 will inspire developers to create expansive worlds with new gameplay experiences that are more immersive than ever before in how they look, sound and feel.
“Our promise to the 100 million-strong PlayStation community is to offer the biggest and best in content and to deliver unique experiences to gamers with unprecedented speed.”
PlayStation 5 is set to launch during the 2020 holiday season.
