@WebHead Well, it's still at least a year away, if not more. No reason to talk about it right now. I wished they focused a bit more on their upcoming games though.

@Frigate reminds of last year when Jez Corden from windows central said that sony is working on big psn upgrades especially cloud. Also for Dualshock 5 better battery life and USB c are a must.

I think there is less speculation and rumour this time round compared to at the same stage last gen. Feels that way for me anyway.

McCroskey: Johnny, what can you make of this? [hands Johnny a map]
Johnny: This? Well, I can make a hat; I can make a brooch; I can make a pterodactyl!

Late March or April after GDC is likely when the rumor/leak mill will really start.

The PS4 wasn't announced until Feb 2013 and the Pro was announced in Sept 2016. Rumours have been circulating about the PS5 - Zen, Navi, 7nm etc and even that dev kits are in the hands of some devs already...

7nm has already made it to consumer products and the second gen FinFet+ is expected to go into high volume production in a few months. That means that the technology is currently available to Sony - its therefore up to them when they want to release - they aren't waiting for 7nm for example - but could be waiting to make a console at the specs they want for the right price and release it at the right time for them. That could still depend on the games and timescale for release. I doubt games like Cyberpunk 2077 (as one of the games that some though looked 'next' gen) can't be scaled down for the base PS4/XB1 but could still have several aspects scaled back significantly. Things like draw distance LODs as there was a demo with more billboards etc visible. It may not just be a resolution drop - as well as the 30fps cap of course - that base console owners have to accept. Infinity Ward were hiring and stated that the next CoD was 'next' gen - not necessarily meaning a next gen console game but 'next gen' for CoD. of course but you would think games like CoD could shift consoles - even if the franchise has dropped in popularity, its still one of the years biggest selling games. I know you could play it on PS4 too but there will be some that want to play it at 4k and potentially over 60fps if you have a TV/monitor capable of that. E3 will no doubt be showing some games that are next gen - maybe not exclusively but will be shown at next gen standards - E3 2018 had a few - Starfield, ES6, to name a couple so I would expect more this year...

Anyway, I think its going to be a very interesting year....

A pessimist is just an optimist with experience!

Why can't life be like gaming? Why can't I restart from an earlier checkpoint??

Feel free to add me but please send a message so I know where you know me from...

I hope the UI is totally customizable. I like to keep mine really clean with as few icons as possible.

I expect PS5 to be announced about 6-7 months before release. Sony have said they wanna be somewhat like apple in regards to hardware reveal to release windows.
