BidnessETC: With Nintendo’s announcement of a new console codenamed NX recently, would you think Sony would be far behind?
They should probably get more than a handful of decent exclusives for the PS4 out first.
What do exclusives have to do with the ps5? Since when do game developers design consoles?
Game developers don't make the console. Mark Cerny is likely chained up somewhere at Sony HQ with Mozart playing in the background.
LOL! You just know they have him sitting on a gold throne being fed grapes by 12 virgins. They ain't letting him go NOWHERE.
They will... There just getting prepared for the future and will be ready when the competitor tries to get an early lead lmao
Not a secret really, everyone knows they are working on it, doing a ton of R&D, they likely started on it with the launch of the PS4, but it won't hit full steam for another few years.
Personally I'd like them to skip PS5 and go straight to PS9 :D http://m.youtube.com/watch?... But really, let's all enjoy THIS gen first, shall we? xD
I'm sure Nintendo and Microsoft are too!
Nintendo is working on NX...not sure if there will be a Wii Me or Wii Cube or Wii Us down the line.
I don't think either of them are working on the PS5.
I think they will spend time planning the inner components even if the tech isn't main stream or even in production as of yet or then and obviously pricing strategy+design. Etc , what it will ultimately be(everything the ps4 is becoming but in a virtual reality with graphics to blow mind?) Of course it is in planning , certainly not devolpment as of yet. I want different virtual themes containing virtual links , like a western style theme pub with juke box linked to spotyfi or my library in a library etc I can walk round with Morpheus. headset.
Yeah they always think about next one when they just release a console. It takes quite a lot of time to develop a system.
I don't think there will be another generation of consoles after this one, PS Now and whatever Microsoft's streaming service is will likely be the focus of next-gen.
i agree with your opinion to some degree i am sure the future lies in distributed processing but i dont think the companies will make such a radical move i am sure that this gen will live along with next gen side by side
if its a basic console generation shift then i will be disappointed i dont think the existing model will survive especially if mobile and remote processing devices ( CLOUD processing ) gets more and more stable and popular . if i was a CEO i wouldnt be stupid and tell my engineers to make PS5 but rather be wise and patient and i think nintendo might have done just that with NX i believe its not a next gen in the manner we know . consumers dont know what they want they just buy and get amazed so they should take their time preparing what will be safe for their business and wow the fans
'especially if mobile and remote processing devices ( CLOUD processing ) gets more and more stable and popular .' It won't. Gonna take many many years/decades before the world gets decent infrastructure to support that sort of move.
not as much as you think many corps are working into fixing such a problem fixed hardware isnt the future thats for sure . if you think NX will kill the Wiiu then you really need to update your knowledge . you wont believe the breakthroughs in the internet department . soon it wont make sense why kill a system if it can stream the latest games and graphics dont really matter anymore because the service provider controls it . the next step for PS now is to stream PS4 games if it happens i see no reason why PS5 couldnt get both hardware and digital release yeah you heard it right digital console release . the real competition wont be on who has the best graphics but who provides the best experience through peripherals and accessories and of course games .
Agree. Distributed processing and cloud are all well and good, and they will work for PS Now I've no doubt. BUT the infrastructure still can't handle it consistently and people won't trust it enough next gen. I wouldn't. You've only got to look at PSN and XB Live issues. I'm not buying a door stop i can't use when either mine or the providers internet connection is down, bottlenecked or just DDoS'ed because someone holds a grudge...
Obviously. Planning for the next console begins at launch of the first console
Of course they are. It's called Rn'D. That kinda stuff takes YEARS.
I'm defiantly sure Sony is working on it's next console, as well as Microsoft. And I'm also certain both companies will be using AMD again, Why? because of Cost? A CPU/GPU combination SoC is So cost convenient for both parties, And I'm hedging my bets on looking at AMD's roadmap for 2015-2020 http://wccftech.com/amd-gpu... and http://wccftech.com/evidenc... Buy looking at this, you can pretty much tell what most likely be in the overall specs of ps5 and next XBox. 1) High Performance Computing APU or HPC-APU for short 2) HBM ( High Bandwidth Memory )Gen2 or later 3) 16nm FinFET/"Arctic Islands" GPU/R9 400 series or the go the cheaper way and use the middle or highest end "Pirate Islands"/R9 300 series. My real worry is will Sony/Microsft use "lessen learned" through this gen about using shitty under-clocked 1.6/1.7ghz APUs and go for more higher 3 or 4ghz APU's from AMD. and won't gimp GPU power at the expense of small compact cases and weak (2 prong)Power Supplies.
We're in what, the 8th generation of consoles now? How are articles like this still a thing? Sony started working on PS5 probably before the PS4 even launched. MS started on XB2 before the XB1 launched. Nintendo started on NX before the WiiU launched. Tech companies don't launch a product and then wait a few years and THEN decide to start working on their next project. They're already off and running on the next thing even before the current thing is out the door. You think Apple waits until one iPhone version is in people's hands before they start working on the next? Or even a game developer doesn't have something else cooking on the backburner even before their current game hits store shelves?
