There may not be a PS5 Pro this generation, with Sony potentially planning to skip a supercharged mid-gen refresh in favour of a full-blown successor. Reliable industry snoop Tom Henderson teased the tidbit on Twitter, as he weighed in on a recurring report that PlayStation will overhaul its new-gen system later this year. As has been indicated previously, this will purportedly feature a detachable disc drive, unifying the Japanese giant’s production pipeline as it attempts to flood the market with hardware following the shortages it experienced in the aftermath of the pandemic.
Henderson hypothesises that a PS5 Pro may not make sense: “It doesn't feel like the regular version has been fully utilised yet and probably won't be on mass until the end of the year. All I can say is that I've heard more about the PS6 than a PS5 Pro.”
