A couple of weeks ago we got the PlayStation 5 and PS4 to show off a couple of new accessories.
The first was a new USB 3.1 Type-C charging port that’s designed to be a “bridge between” the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox Scorpion, but now Sony has revealed that there will also be a USB Type-A charging port.
Sony has been teasing a new “USB Type-B” port that will plug into the Xbox’s Lightning connector, and now it’s clear that the USB Type B port will be a part of the new USB Type C port.
That port is designed to connect to the PS4 and PS5 to provide an extra cable, but that’s not the only USB Type A port that Sony has teased.
Sony also revealed a new accessory that’s going to plug into a new Lightning connector: the “USB 3.0-C” port.
If you look at the above image, you can see that this new USB port is labeled “USB-C Type-D” and it’s the same port that was used for the USB-C to USB-A adapter on the Xbox.
We know that the Xbox will support USB Type 2 and Type 3 ports on both its USB Type 1 and Type 2 ports, but there’s also an extra Type-2 port that is going to be used for USB Type 3 devices.
This new Type-3 port, like the USB 3 port, is not the “Type-A” port on the PlayStation and Xbox, so we’re not sure exactly what the difference is between these two new ports.
We’ll have to wait and see what the Xbox does with the new Type 2 port on its controller before we know what the differences are between the new type of port on Sony’s new controller.
In terms of accessories, we can expect the PS5 Pro to be the first PS5 with a 1080p display, a new wireless charging pad, and a new keyboard dock.
There’s no word yet on when the PS3 Pro will be coming to the United States, but it seems likely that we’ll see it at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) show in January.
The Xbox Scorpions have been confirmed for the show, and it appears that the Scorpions will support 4K video and will have a “new Xbox game controller with enhanced Xbox power.”
Microsoft has also confirmed that the new Xbox will come with a redesigned “Xbox Experience” app, but at this point, it doesn’t seem like Microsoft is doing anything special with the app, as we’ve seen on the official Xbox website.
The company has also revealed that Xbox One S will also come with an upgraded version of Windows 10.
