Suddenly. PlayStation 5 has no browser

The PlayStation 5 game console comes out tomorrow (though not everywhere), and on the eve of this important event, Sony representatives gave an interview to the Japanese edition of AV Watch, in which they tried to explain a couple of not too obvious points related to the new console. For example, as it turns out, the PlayStation 5 doesn’t have a browser.

In PlayStation 3, he was, as in PlayStation 4. And in PlayStation 5 he disappeared. Why? It is unclear, but the company does not see this as a big problem. Executive Vice President Masayasu Ito and Senior Vice President of Sony Interactive Entertainment Hideaki Nishino expressed doubts that a separate browser application is really necessary, because some of its functions are implemented in the network functions of the set-top box. What such functions are we talking about is unclear. This probably means the ability to connect to Wi-Fi networks or the fact that users can log in to the own systems of some game publishers.

Top managers have commented on the strange situation with VR support on the PlayStation 5. Recall that the console itself is compatible with the PlayStation VR headset, but the PlayStation Camera cannot track the user’s movements in the headset. The question is solved … a free camera adapter, but in order to get it, you need to fill out an application on the website. One more little touch: VR games only work on PlayStation 5 in PS4 backward compatibility mode. In general, there are enough minor problems with launching VR on PS5 so that when faced with it, the user no longer wants to use the corresponding function. In response, Mr. Nishino pointed out that some games will work better than on PS4 anyway. He also expressed a desire to see a more elegant solution for VR games on PS5 in the future, but … he has nothing more to say on this matter.
