PlayStation 5 Is Dropping During the Holiday 2020 Season.

On Tuesday, close to six years after the Playstation 4 was released, Sony confirmed that we’ll be getting the Playstation 5 during the 2020 holiday season. The console will come with a completely reimagined controller, which reportedly includes more interactive features.

Further details have yet to be shared.

Role models. I feel like it’s the right area for me to get in there.”
