As we are getting close to the holiday release window of the upcoming consoles, we are getting more and more information on the consoles. A few days ago, Xbox announced that the Series X console would be released in November. The warranty information of the Leaked Series S(?) controller suggests 5th November to be the big Xbox day. Now, Sony has come forward with a full PlayStation 5 commercial that highlights key features of the consoles.
The commercial tries to establish how the 3D sound powered by the tempest engine and DualSense controller’s Haptic feedback affects the gameplay. These are undoubtedly one of the most prominent features of the PlayStation 5 console, but people already know these features. Mark Cerny extensively talked about these features when Sony released the specifications of the console.
Sony is excited about these features and rightly so, but fans want to hear about the pricing and pre-order details of the console. The pricing, availability, and release information of the console are sadly absent from the commercial. So, the commercial serves as one of the initial marketing campaigns that Sony will employ to promote its new console.
According to Mary Yee, the head of global marketing at Sony Interactive Entertainment, “We are quite excited about these features, and we can’t wait for you all to get more immersed in the world of games with the PS5 console and DualSense wireless controller in your own hands.” The commercial shows how 3D sounds will help players “see with sound” and how their fingers will “feel the force” via the haptic feedback on the DualSense controller.
Lastly, it is reasonable to assume the release date of the PlayStation 5 will be close to the release date of the Series X console.
