Description Edit | History

Next Gen: PlayStation 5 has been officially announced by Sony with a slated Holiday 2020 release.

Some of the new features relate to controllers, which will feature Haptic feedback instead of the usual rumble. It will also have adaptive triggers.

Source: The Publisher Website.

In August 2021, Sony began shipping a hardware revision - CFI-1100B. The new design reduced the size and weight of the heat sink, reducing the net system weight by 300 grams (0.66 lb). This change also replaced the screw for the console stand to be screwable without the use of a screw driver. The revised console has a reduced heat-sink (half the size of original) and a new fan to compensate, but still runs 8 to 9 degrees warmer than the original.

In 2022, Sony began shipping yet another hardware revision. The new design made changes to the semiconductor.

Notes:

  • PlayStation 4 controllers do not work with the PlayStation 5.
  • The PS5 can play Blu-ray movies (HD, 3D, and 4K UHD), but is region locked.

Common problems/faults with the console:

  • Controllers Drift: Sometimes out of the box, because the gamepads use ageing off-the-shelf joystick modules with a short life expectancy (2 to 7 months). It was a cost saving move by Sony that makes the joysticks extremely difficult to repair without soldering gear. There are four main causes of stick drift: sensor wear, spring fatigue, material stretching, and dust/moisture build up.
  • C-Bomb: When the cmos battery dies (average lifespan 10 years, ERROR CE 34878-0 or 30392-7) or is replaced, the system will need to check in with the PSN to confirm the correct time. The PS5 runs the check for digital games only.
    • When the PSN servers go down in the future it will render digital games unplayable.
    • Sony could prevent this by changing how PS5 handles validating trophies in a firmware update, and failing that, a jailbroken console may avoid the problem.
