As if there was any doubt, Sony has confirmed that its next-gen PlayStation console will indeed be called PlayStation 5, or PS5 for short. The confirmation comes from Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan, in an exclusive interview with Wired.

"It's nice to be able to say it," Ryan jokes. "Like a giant burden has been lifted from my shoulders."
