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...
