We all swore that this was old news, but apparently the PS5 is coming out during "Holiday 2020" and will be called the PlayStation 5. It's got a new fancy controller with haptic feedback, adaptive triggers and a new speaker that Cliff and Dylan hate. It will support 8K support for some reason, has hardware based ray tracing and some really cool innovations both on how games are installed and how you can start them.
