PlayStation 5 Will Feature An Evolution In Sound, Sony Says
The PlayStation 5 will feature a 3D audio processing unit, and Sony has outlined the advantages this will offer in a corporate strategy meeting.
The PlayStation 5 will offer what Sony is calling an "evolution" for sound. This is according to the slides from Sony's latest corporate strategy meeting, which outline many of the company's plans for the upcoming next-generation console.
One slide of their presentation outlines how the PlayStation 5 will open up new sound possibilities thanks to the new processing unit it contains. "By installing a customized 3D audio processing unit in PS5, we have made it possible to deliver diverse and sophisticated 3D audio experiences," the slide reads. "Players can experience sound that moves in from front to behind, above to below, and all around them."
According to the report, combining these new sound possibilities with other features like the speed of an SSD and haptic feedback controllers, the PlayStation 5 will offer "experiences that were not possible before."
The possibilities of what the PS5 could achieve were recently showcased by Unreal, which showed how games powered by Unreal Engine 5 might look on the system. The report also suggests that Sony will unveil some next-generation games soon.
While we haven't seen any PS5 games yet, we're getting a better picture of what the console will be capable of. Here's everything we know so far.
