So, Looks Like Sony's Already Working on the PS5

A whole new world

While the PlayStation 4 is likely to be around for many years yet, we'd expect Sony to be starting to think about the future right about now.

Fallout 4 to Make Its PS4 Premiere at E3 2015

It's happening

With Bethesda holding its own E3 press conference this year, that can surely only mean one thing, right? The Internet's been riddled with rumours and speculation regarding Fallout 4 for what feels like an eternity, but we've heard nothing concrete for years – until now.
