It feels like we've been waiting forever, but now it's not long before we finally get our first proper look at the PlayStation 5, and by the sounds of it, Sony have been spending a lot of time making sure that once it's here, it sticks around for as long as possible.
Speaking at CES 2020, Sony Interactive Entertainment president and CEO Jim Ryan confirmed that there is going to be six 'key' features that people can expect to be a part of the highly anticipated console.
Ryan has claimed that this new tech is 'future-proof' and will enable the PS5 to stand up to competitors for a long time to come.
While many of the distinguishing features of the upcoming PS5 are being kept strictly on the down-low, we do know a little more information now about how this machine will build upon and differ from its predecessors.
The PS5 is currently planned to include a high-speed SSD, ultra HD Blu-ray, hardware-based ray tracing and 3D audio, as well as a brand new DualShock controller which will feature haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, according to Unilad, as per Hypebeast.

Ryan told the audience at CES 2020: "With that foundation, PlayStation 5 will inspire developers to create expansive worlds with new gameplay experiences that are more immersive than ever before in how they look, sound, and feel.
"Our promise to the 100 million-strong PlayStation community is to offer the biggest and best in content. And to deliver unique experiences to gamers with unprecedented speed.
"There's much more to share about PlayStation 5 in the months ahead, and we look forward to revealing more details, including the content that will showcase the platform and the future of gaming.
"Community is the bedrock of how we grow our company and it's why our brand is so beloved. It's that promise that the PlayStation brand was built on 25 years ago, and we will continue our mission to bring that to players all around the world."
We still don't actually have a good idea of what the PS5's design will look like, but back in August, LetsGoDigital designed a series of renders based on patent sketches they'd managed to obtain.
These renders give some pretty cool ideas about the PS5's shape, buttons, cooling vents and ports, but it's likely that the finished product will look a bit different by the time it's in your home.
It's currently scheduled for release in the 2020 holiday season, so hopefully we can have one hooked up to the TV before or on Christmas day.News Now - Sport News
