So start saving!

PlayStation 5 is launching next year with a new advanced controller. 

Yes 2020 will not only bring a new decade (getting old guys), it's bringing the PS5.

PlayStation Australia announced on Twitter they’ll be launching the new console in time for the 2020 holiday season. 

Which means you have ample warning to be a good person so you'll be locked into Santa's nice list.

In an exclusive piece on WIRED, Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan and system architect Mark Cerny hint at what we can expect.

There’s still a Blu-ray drive, the hard drive will be a solid-state drive (SSD), opting for faster loading and installation speeds as well as the ability to choose what to install (yes please, if only all the devices we used had this). 

As for the new controller, WIRED reports it will have an improved speaker, a better battery life, USB-C charging but the most impressive features are haptic feedback (which will allow you to feel even greater vibration) as well as adaptive triggers (which will allow you to have greater control over things.

We've come a long way from the PS1 days where playing Spyro on the small grey controller was all the rage.
