The PlayStation 5 is launching this year--its release is coming sometime this fall--and now Sony has opened next-generation console's official website. The dedicated landing page doesn't feature any real details yet, so you shouldn't expect to learn more information about the system from it just yet. But the site does offer a sign-up for a newsletter and a brief promise of announcements to come, including those concerning some of the major unanswered questions, including the system's exact release date and price.

"We've begun to share some of the incredible features you can expect from PlayStation 5, but we're not quite ready to fully unveil the next generation of PlayStation," the page reads. "Sign up below to be among the first to receive updates as we announce them, including news on the PS5 release date, PS5 price and the upcoming roster of PS5 launch games."

Most recently, Sony showed off the logo at the Consumer Electronics Show, after revealing its official name will follow the conventional PlayStation naming scheme. We've also received a number of technical details, including the inclusion of a solid-state drive. The hardware is said to support 4K and ray-tracing, and the new controller will use haptic feedback and "adaptive triggers" that will allow developers to adjust the tension for different in-game actions.

We're not sure exactly when we might hear more about the PS5, but if it's anything like the PlayStation 4 rollout Sony will host a dedicated PlayStation Meeting event to unveil it. We already know that Sony is skipping E3 again, so it won't be debuted there. Sony also recently explained that it hasn't decided on a price point quite yet--and it's watching the competition.

Speaking of competition, the Xbox Series X is also coming in Holiday 2020. Microsoft has teased that the Xbox Series X won't be "out of position" as it relates to power and price. It also says it has "bold" ideas for competing with PS5.
