Controller may include a camera
It’s all kicking off. Sony has shocked us by announcing that it’s not attending E3 2019 at all, and it’s resulted in a slew of speculation about the PlayStation 5 and what’s going on behind-the-scenes. Kotaku reports that, “based on conversations it’s had with develop
But there's virtually nothing to go on
Sony brings together developers every year for the annual PlayStation DevCon, and 2018’s incarnation will take place in London – presumably at the platform holder’s headquarters, unless it’s booked out a swanky business room. And this is the problem: despite PlayStation 5 reports all over the web, we...
Sony basically confirmed the PlayStation 5 last week, and now it’s recruiting a Senior Product Manager to help plot out the roadmap for its next generation console. The role – spotted by ResetEra on career focused website
Here we go
Oh boy, now things are getting especially juicy. There's a job listing doing the rounds that perhaps suggests that next generation consoles are coming sooner than many expect. Said job listing has been posted by Infinity Ward, one of three developers behind the Call of Duty franchise. This year, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is being...
Next gen is coming
As the PS4's life has trundled on, rumours of a PlayStation 5 have been flickering in and out of the news cycle for several years now. It doesn't take an industry analyst to tell you that PS5 is coming - in fact, Shawn Layden pretty much confirmed this in an interview last year - but that hasn't stopped people from speculating...
Speaking in code
There's no denying that PlayStation 5 is on its way, and we now have a fresh rumour to add to the pile. A ResetEra user has unearthed a new platform within Unreal Engine 4 named 'Erebus', and there's some evidence that it could turn out to be Sony's next generation console. In the two images below, we can see a list of known...
Unless production snags prevent it
Predictions are all over the place as to when Sony's follow-up to the PS4 will be released. Some were initially predicting late 2018, which obviously isn't happening, while others think the PS5 is further away, in 2020 or 2021. The latest on this subject comes from Japanese firm Ace Economic Research Institute,...
Everyone's favourite industry analyst Michael Pachter reckons Death Stranding, the PlayStation 4 exclusive from Hideo Kojima, will end up being a cross-gen title. In other words, it'll arrive on both PS4 and the inevitable PS5. "My bias is that will also launch in 2020, so no reason to announce any current generation...
Spoilers: It's not
We think this summer heat may be doing some real damage to people's brains, because a seemingly innocent tweet from the official Russian PlayStation account has sparked talk of Sony's next-gen console, commonly referred to as the PS5. To be brutally honest, we have absolutely no idea how some people have come to this conclusion...
Sony is leading the charge
Sony’s less eager to talk about the PlayStation 5 than its competitor, but murmurs coming out of E3 2018 suggest that work is well underway. In fact, exclusive reports by both WCCFTech and Forbes claim that AMD’s next-gen graphics architecture Navi has been created specifically for the Japanese giant’s upcoming...
The console of tomorrow
It's when conversation begins to circulate about next generation hardware that we start to see concept art from designers, whether professional or not. French designer Joseph Dumary has released a few images of what he thinks the PlayStation 5 will look like, and gives some detail on how it will work, too. Dumary's PS5...
Current-gen still the target
At this point, a lot of people from within the games media have seen Cyberpunk 2077 in action. Developer CD Projekt Red has been showing a 50 minute demo behind closed doors to members of the press, and by all accounts, it's pretty incredible. Many have penned their thoughts, with the majority of articles covering...
Release date, setting, and platform
Bethesda officially announced The Elder Scrolls VI during its E3 2018 press conference with a very brief trailer. Studio boss Todd Howard talked about it for a short time, and suggested that it will be a next-gen title. That means it's almost certainly a PS5 game, rather than a PS4 title. In this guide,...
Bethesda's Starfield is real, and it's a game for the next generation, according to studio boss Todd Howard. Speaking at the company's E3 2018 press conference, Howard wheeled out a short teaser trailer that shows... Well, not a lot. But it's definitely happening, and it's most likely a PS5 game. Are you hyped for a sci-fi title from...
Never one to shy away from reasonably bold claims, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot reckons that the next console generation will be the last of its kind. Once it's done and dusted, Guillemot expects hardware to shift towards streaming services. "I think we will see another generation, but there is a good chance that step-by-step we...
Beginning of the end
The PlayStation 4 is nearing the end of its life cycle, according to Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO John Kodera. Speaking at the company's latest investor meeting, Kodera's statement comes as no real surprise. After all, the PS4 will turn five years old this November. The question, then, is how long will this "final phase"...
No hardware announcements at show
There will be no Sony hardware announcements at E3 2018, meaning you can put your anticipation for the PlayStation 5 back in its box. While it perhaps won’t come as a huge surprise, Shawn Layden confirmed the tidbit on today’s PlayStation Blogcast. It perhaps indicates that the organisation is aware next-gen...
But it's unlikely to arrive soon
Mark Cerny’s role as the PlayStation 4’s lead architect is one of the key reasons behind the console’s success, as he sought to right the wrongs of the PlayStation 3 and collaborated with developers – both first-party and third-party – on a system that was much easier to work with. According to a Digital...
Developers weigh in on recent rumours
The next PlayStation will release later this year, one ambitious rumour claimed recently. But according to a Kotaku report penned by the ever-reliable Jason Schreier, that’s extremely unlikely to be the case – in fact, we may be waiting until at least 2020 for the so-called PlayStation 5, just like
Odds on 2020
We don’t think anyone really expected the PlayStation 5 to launch this year, despite there being reports to the contrary. Nevertheless, industry analyst Michael Pachter has been chatting to WCCFTech about the probability of a new console this year, and he’s said that there’s a “very low” chance of the PS5 dropping this...
It's difficult to believe that we're already starting to hear conversation about PlayStation 5, but the first information surrounding the inevitable machine is doing the rounds online. In no way are any of these details confirmed to be true, so please remember to take with a metric ton of salt. A technology news site by the name...
So, Ubisoft popped up earlier this week and said that it doesn't expect the next generation of consoles to launch for at least another couple of years. In other words, the company doesn't think that Sony is going to release the PS5 until late 2019 at the earliest. The publisher promises it doesn't have any inside knowledge...
Next-gen chatter begins
You won’t be playing on a PlayStation 5 until at least 2019, according to Ubisoft. In an investors call earlier this week, CEO Yves Guillemot declared that he believes new consoles are “a minimum of two years” away. We’d always assumed Sony would release a new system in 2019, too – but we’re actually starting to...
Predicting when PlayStation's new platform will arrive
PlayStation 5’s release date is a mystery at the time of typing, but we now at least know that a next-gen console is coming. Speaking as part of an interview in the aftermath of E3 2017, Sony bigwig Shawn Layden admitted that the platform holder has new hardware in the pipeline, but added that...
Pachter plumps up with PlayStation 5 prediction
The PlayStation 5 will “probably” release in 2019, according to analyst Michael Pachter. Sony bigwig Shawn Layden recently confirmed that a new generation console is coming from the platform holder, but he warned fans not to expect it anytime soon. However, speaking with Gaming Bolt, the divisive...
But don't expect it soon
Sony has commented on the PlayStation 5 for the first time, telling a German website that it will release a next-gen console – albeit not any time soon. The platform holder was asked about the PlayStation 4 Pro, and whether the mid-gen device will eventually get any exclusive software. Big-wig Shawn Layden reaffirmed that...
Pretty bloody unlikely, though
One analyst believes that Sony is readying the PlayStation 5 for release in 2018 – but we respectfully disagree. Macquarie Capital Securities forecaster Damian Thong told The Wall Street Journal that Sony's next-gen system could drop as early as the second half of next year, with his accurate PS4 Pro and PS4 Slim...
Looking to the future
While the PlayStation 4 is already well on its way to the coveted 100 million units milestone, in a secret bunker somewhere, we suspect that system architect Mark Cerny will be thinking about the PlayStation 5. The system's years away at this point, but given that the death knell hasn't sounded on home consoles just yet, we...
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. It's already set out its stall with the likes of PlayStation Now, but with Internet infrastructure not quite up to speed, we suspect that there'll be at least one more traditional console...
