“There is ray-tracing acceleration in the GPU hardware,” he says, “which I believe is the statement that people were looking for.”
physical games for the PS5 will use 100GB optical disks, inserted into an optical drive that doubles as a 4K Bluray player.
This time around, aided in part by the simplified game data possible with the SSD, Sony is changing its approach to storage, making for a more configurable installation—and removal—process. "Rather than treating games like a big block of data," Cerny says, "we're allowing finer-grained access to the data." That could mean the ability to install just a game's multiplayer campaign, leaving the single-player campaign for another time, or just installing the whole thing and then deleting the single-player campaign once you've finished it.
a completely revamped user interface.
Cerny hands me a prototype of the next-generation controller, an unlabeled matte-black doohickey that looks an awful lot like the PS4's DualShock 4. After all, there's a little hole on it, and a recently published patent points to Sony developing a voice-driven AI assistant for the PlayStation. But all I get from Cerny is, "We'll talk more about it another time."
DualShock 5...adaptive triggers"....also boasts haptic feedback far more capable than the rumble motor console gamers are used to....improved speaker on the controller....USB Type-C connector for charging (and you can play through the cable as well). Its larger-capacity battery and haptics motors make the new controller a bit heavier than the DualShock 4
PS5 devkit—a devkit that on quick glance looks a lot like the one Gizmodo reported on last week.

But, dang it, I'm feeling a frisson of excitement about Day One!
