You know the drill by now: US rapper Travis Scott has signed a deal with Sony to become a strategic creative partner for PlayStation 5. That has already resulted in the superstar getting early hands on with the console and an extremely unique unboxing video, but the partnership could be about to get even bigger. According to a report from Forbes, a source close to the website suggests the worldwide superstar could be designing his own PS5 game as well as a limited edition console.
Buried towards the bottom of an interview with the man himself, the US rapper is quizzed on the PlayStation partnership, stating: "It’s all going to roll out in the next couple of weeks". Separately, Forbes then follows up by saying: "A source later says that it’s a multiyear deal that could involve a cobranded console and perhaps even a game designed by Scott." He is expected to earn $20 million thanks to the partnership.
Given the current situation surrounding PS5 stock, we highly doubt Sony has any plans in the immediate future to release a third console model onto the market. In the second half of 2021, however? We reckon that's a possibility. All we can do for now is wait and see if the claim comes to fruition, but it's an interesting thought nonetheless.
