This article looks over the possible triggers and reasons for a timetable regarding the announcement of a PS5.
Leaked before E3 2019, released fall 2020
I say all currently announced games come to PS4. I am saying Horizon Zero Dawn 2, Death Stranding, and SuckerPunch's next game are 2019 Fall - 2010 Summer releases. PS5 announced in Feb of 2019 and launches with Horizon, a COD, Madden 20, and GT Sport APEX Edition.
It wouldnt surprise me if they have been working on it since the Pro so if they are confident about its specs and design, I'd expect info by E3 of 2018 with a release in fall of 2019.
I think so, too. This has been in the making already for a while. Possible even in parallel with the Pro. And yet, I don't understand why people (on here) see this so black and white. The PS4 market can coexist with a new platform. All that matters is that new games will be released for the 60M people owning a PS4, and those games will also run on the new platform (all of them), and it can offer some more enhancements what a current PS4 cannot offer (e..g focus on 60fps and UHD drive, so games can exceed 50GB). Nothing is getting taken way from the PS4. Developers are most like targeting multiple performance targets already. Those games will simple scale dynamically for PS4 and PS5. Master a game for >50Gb and master the same with less assets for a BD release. Same when games download hi res assets today. This has already been done and will sure need to be done for the XoX. So, no real holdup to not go with it for Sony. As much as I like my Pro, I wouldn't might investing again - later next year.
I feel there will be some pressure to do so if the X keeps gaining in popularity. The problems I see for them releasing in 2019, is what do you build that would be significantly more impressive than a 4K console and what would something like that cost in 2019? X1X is in a very strong position right now. As it has already shown that developer can achieve 4k at high setting and the most I see Sony doing by 2019, is releasing a more powerful Pro. I think a console with a significant leap in power over the X will prove too expensive in 2019.
Normally they already start working on a new console once the previous one has released. I remember an ad from Sony where they asked for people to work on the PS5, this was 2 or 3 years ago.... "According to lead architect Mark Cerny, development of Sony's fourth video game console began as early as 2008" (from wikipedia, there's a source for it as well). So they were working on the PS4 5 years before release, so it makes to expect them to already have been working on it for a few years by now as well...
I am thinking spring 2020.
Late 2018 to mid 2019 is good to me. I want another batch of great games before the PS5
Honestly if it was to release end of 2018 but before that we still got all the big games promised to us released like death stranding, God of war, Spiderman and days gone (probably forgetting a few) then I'd be fine with that.
What is with these PS5 articles popping up again at this time?
Probably the same reason why some Xbox fans are over the moon they finally have a more powerful console 😜 As for me personally I don't care that the Pro isn't as powerful as a competitor come November...
Xbox one X awkwardly late and no game invest into it except Forza7 even the long waited powered by cloud game isnt near yet, that made them angry so Ps5 articles is the way to go.
Sony should release it when the time is right. Don’t react just because MS has their ‘new’ iteration of a console. Be confident.
But why underestimate the competition, and not top it off now that you are on top. No reason to not move forward. It would be a mistake to let the momentum slide.
Sony don't need to be worried about it. I prefer Sony focus what they good at.
No time soon I hope.
I would like a late 2019 or maybe even 2020. I got my pro at launch but i would still like more time with it. The games that have utilized it are great but I want a lil more bang for my buck before I have to upgrade again.
So, why not buy in 2019 then? If you are happy with the Pro, keep it. Why would you update at launch?
Prob because realistically I can afford the upgrade and even if they release games for both systems why bother playing on my pro when the 5 would be considerably better. That's like saying why not use a flip phone instead of getting the new smartphone. Why use outdated technology if you don't need to.
And why is this a problem?
E3 2019 the earliest depends on how strong the ps4 is going we could see sony push it back till e3 2020 for reveal and fall 2020 for release 10-12TF(if it's 2020 than we could see sony push for 12-14 i think these TF wars are about to get real haha) minimum 12-16 GB ram much better CPU
10-12 is more for 2020, 8-10 for 2019... To make it in the size appropriate for consoles takes a bit longer...
If they can further enhance fp16 modes (or when engines are actually more optimized for certain fp16 optimizations), a 10Tf target sounds quite intriguing. But I agree, shouldn't be below. At the same time, there is a complete different take on the market and that is, how much Tf can one deliver at a $200 braket? I fully expect the new generation to be a family not just one machine and with it at $200 machine which replaces the standard PS4
Sony said they want this gen to be longer than the last and in an interview a few weeks ago they said they are considering another iterative PS4. PS5 won't be announced until 2022 at the earliest
Source? Haven't heard anything about another iterative Ps4...
Can't find the article. It was posted here not long ago
Then it was probably an 'opinion' piece or something else based on rumours. If it was legit there would be more than one article about it, they would be plastered over many a gaming news site...
Why is every 5th article on n4g becoming "when is ps5 out"... Like dude, play your f*****g console and stop worrying. Enjoy your ps4, or Xb1, and just chill. It'll be out at some point and when they announce it, you can be pretty sure that n4g is gonna explode with articles about it again.
Nobody is worried. I guess we'll still play our PS4s and Pros. At least for another year or longer. But what's wrong with looking beyond that? Because if this is gonna happen, which it will, of course, the technical Roadmap must have been layed out a while ago.
There's nothing wrong with it, it's just the overabundance of articles centering around it that's becoming mundane :O Even I'm excited to see what the future holds, it just feels like gaming journalists can't enjoy what they have for the moment. The roadmap is probably there, yes. Especially if Sony is going for iterative life cycles and a lean approach to their product development :)
When we should expect no more exclusives, Spiderman, god of war, FFVII(timed E), Ni No Kuni 2, anime games, FFXIV ending stormblood, The last of us2, GG next game, SOC remake etc. Edit: Death Stranding, GT sport, FF Dissidia NT, Yakuza
Feb 2019. No earlier.
A platform release should make a holiday appearance when the demand is greatest. But Nov 2018 vs Feb 2019 isn't really that much of a difference from a technical perspective
Feb 2019 for the reveal, not the launch. Beyond that, although you nor I know when "the demand will be greatest", historically, Sony releases a new console every 6-7 years. So the time is appropriate.
Look at sales through out the year. Holiday season twarfs the rest of the year. By far. Take a guess why XoX releases by end of the year...
2020. A PS5 released earlier than that wouldn't be next gen, it would just feel like an upgrade again. PS5 in 2020, Nextbox in 2021.
PS5 in 2019, PS5 Pro in 2022?
Yes. Or its a modular design
E3 2018, RELEASED IN 2019
aparently when amd has apus ready!!!
That as well, yes! 😀
Either early 2019 or 2020 at a special, extra, event and will release that same year right before the holiday season!
Hopefully, 2020 at the earliest. Preferably 2021. We don't need a PS5 anytime soon.
Announced at Psx 2018 and released at Fall 2019
2020/2021 is my guesstimate.
