Sony previously announced specific details about the specs, per The Guardian: “AMD Zen 2-based eight-core central processor, a graphics chipset capable of 10.28 TFLOPs and running at 2.23GHz, and 16GB of system memory. The console will come with a built in 825GB solid state drive, which will allow extremely fast loading times, and it will support advanced visual effects such as real-time ray tracing.”

“The new controller: the DualSense (as opposed to the PS4’s DualShock). It features ‘advanced haptic feedback’ and adaptive triggers that can resist the pressure of your fingers. The Share button is now the Create button, which gives players options for livestreaming, screenshotting and sharing. It also has a built-in microphone so you can chat in multiplayer without a headset.”

The release date is still loosely expected to be sometime from end of October until early December 2020.

Sony, Universal & Warner Music Employees Advised Not to Attend SXSW 2020 Due to Coronavirus Fears

Sony, Universal and Warner Music are asking their employees not to attend the upcoming 2020 South By Southwest Festival.

The three major music groups advised employees not to go to the annual music festival and conference held in Austin, Texas due to coronavirus concerns, Variety reported on Friday (March 6).

“Given the event draws in many people from around the world, we’ve decided to cancel [our company’s] attendance at SXSW this year. … Please note, this is a precautionary measure. Many of our partners are reaching similar conclusions, which also means the benefits of attending would be much reduced…SXSW is an important and productive event for our industry and we expect to be back there next year as usual,” one company’s internal memo reads.

This is far from the first sign of companies pulling out of SXSW – find out who else is no longer going.

SXSW, which takes place from March 13 to 22, is so far still scheduled to go forward in Austin, Texas.
