The tech giant is hiring a Senior Cloud Engineering Manager and the advert included some major statements about the upcoming next-gen console which will be release next year around the same time as the Xbox Scarlett.

The list states that the person will be part of the team “to build next generation cloud infrastructure”, and also “be one of the leaders of an elite team that is super excited to launch the upcoming world’s fastest console (PS5) in 2020.”

The news comes after it was reported that the new PlayStation controller will reportedly focus on cloud gaming.

According to a patent filed by Sony recently, the controller, believed to be named DualShock 5, would connect to the internet instead of the console.

The patent submitted via the World Intellectual Property Organization, stated that “a controller device for user interactivity with a server of a cloud gaming system is provided.”

It added:

“The controller device communicates directly to an access device for connection to a network that connects the controller device to the server without connecting to a client device.

“Wherein the server receives and processes the inputs to render gameplay video that is transmitted over the network for rendering to a display device that is local to the controller device.”

The PS5 controller is getting a revamp, with the first innovation set to be haptic feedback to replace the long-running ‘rumble’ technology.

Jim Ryan – the president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment – recently confirmed:

“With haptics, you truly feel a broader range of feedback, so crashing into a wall in a race car feels much different than making a tackle on the football field.

“You can even get a sense for a variety of textures when running through fields of grass or plodding through mud.”

Meanwhile, the controller’s trigger buttons will feature ‘adaptive triggers’.

Addressing the development, Ryan said:

“Developers can program the resistance of the triggers so that you feel the tactile sensation of drawing a bow and arrow or accelerating an off-road vehicle through rocky terrain.

“In combination with the haptics, this can produce a powerful experience that better simulates various actions.”

Sony’s next generation console is due to be released into for next Christmas.
