SIEE has been around since the days of the PlayStation One, the first major re-release of the company's inaugural console.
Earlier this year, a well known Japanese Analyst Hideki Yasuda from Ace Research Institute predicted that the PlayStation 5 base model will launch at $499. Sony says it is also changing the way gamers will install and uninstall a title.
"The second innovation is something we call adaptive triggers, which have been incorporated into the trigger buttons (L2/R2)". "Developers can program the resistance of the triggers so that you feel the tactile sensation of drawing a bow and arrow or accelerating an off-road vehicle through rocky terrain". The feature was revealed during an in-depth interview with Wired. It will also be possible to join another player in a game easily, track what games they are playing and more, all from a single page as a part of the refreshed UI. No word on a headphone jack yet, though.
Finally, Sony also mentions a "transparent mode" in the patent, which seems to imply that you will still be able to at least partially see the outside world while wearing the headset and navigating menus or sitting on the home screen before you actually jump into a game. The company promises that games take up much less space this time around due to improvements to how the SSD reads data.
Speaking with Famitsu, PlayStation's Japanese arm said that while development in this regard is still on-going, the platform holder has still yet to achieve backwards compatibility with all PS4 games. Still, if the console is expected to have games run in 4K than having it play movies is far from a bad thing.
