Industry analyst Michael Pachter says it's unlikely either Sony or Microsoft will wait that long to release their next consoles.
How can they be "pushed back" when they haven't even been announced yet
Ding Ding Ding! This guy wins.
I just want Pachter banned from this site. I never hear anything constructive or smart. Just common sense in a headline, captain obvious quotes, and impossible untruths(like the "he's not wrong.." meme).
He does sat some smart things sometimes. Often in fact. It's just they always pick the stupidest thing he says, usually which is obvious, or wishful thinking with console war undertones, and that's what people discuss. Not that him being banned would be bad, because realistically, anything we talk about that he says has already been said by fan boys most of the time.
I don't think you have a full understanding of how these headlines work...pac doesn't set a press conference and notify the media that he has a statement to make, get to the podium and say x, y, z, fill in the headline. He is in the midst of a 20 min discussion that has context and themes BUT then gamingbolt pulls one phrase and sticks it in the title for clicks (and people like you, on que, spout off about his remarks). Btw another area you may want to invest some research and thought is with your "banned" comment, that actually is what's important here. No he's not being banned, you are not being banned and I'm not fucking being banned, cause we have freedom of speech. So gtfo ever considering banning for free speech. In addition if you would like to hear his entire thought expressed in context you could check out his weekly yt 20 min he does, he's descent and even delves into some whiskey conisour talk.
@traumadisaster You don't understand freedom of speech. This site is privately owned. Go ask HipHopGamer to post something here.
here's the next prediction by pacther, (the next xbox and ps will be more powerful than current gen)............
Because forum warriors know when stuff will be released?
Because they have already, just not to the general public. People in the know are under ndas, but we get leaks every now and then. do some searching and you can find some details.
The next xbox will launch with Halo infinite which will drop in 2020.
@Spurg I think the next Xbox will be released in 2021 with new unannounced games from Microsoft´s new studios.
im gonna have to disagree with you on that one @obscure. I do not think Xbox will allow ps to release a full year ahead of them. and vice versa.
I suggest the next Xbox should launch before the PS5.
Ixeasy I dont think they care anymore seening as how all games will be forwards and backwards comparible aparently
@lxeasy There is some merit to releasing new ips on new hardware, so it's not out of the realm of possibility. Many people are open to new things in a new gen, usually because of the slimmer pickings of games available, and those games getting added marketing time because of the console marketing. Every gen sees a few new ips around a console launch window. Things like ryse, knack, SSOD or the order(which was originally a launch game), probably does better in that time frame compared to when there are more choices, because people want games to play on their new system, and early adopters buy more games. That can help establish new ips.
Can't wait and I won't wait. Looking into to buying another gaming PC, Love being able to play games with 60fps or better.
Well if you don't already have a gaming PC capable of running games with 60fps or better then you already have been waiting, no?
#metoo ... oh wait I don't gaf. Enjoy playing WoW for another 20 years, then you're able to play WoW Classic classically... or kaunther straight or LoL or insert Asian mmorpg... so many exclusives. .KKrieger ....
So he just confirmed 2021 launch then right? If Patcher says it. The opposite is true.
1202 is the reverse of 2021. The opposite (or additive inverse) is -2021
So I'll predict both consoles to be released February 31st, -2021 cuz.....math.
Was about to say this, ok guys, pen it in, Patcher says it won't release 2021, which means it will release then.
Sony confirmed that months ago
2021 seems unlikely to begin with for Sony,knowing 2019 has some heavy hitters coming it makes sense when they'll release their new system at the end of 2020 (they usually release them in the Fall).
The PS4 is still on fire and has some HEAVY hitters in 2019. Sony can't take away the hype of the PS4 yet so my estimates are... December 2019 announcement /reveal for a November 2020 release or December 2020 announcement for a November 2021 release. I bet Santa Monica and Guerilla are already working on PS5 titles.
They're all going to be PS5 titles. Like The Last of Us Remastered being cross-gen, only this time backwards compatibility will work instead so gamers don't have to buy the game twice. x86 means games are easy to play over many consoles and they just got patents to play old games on new systems with better graphics. There's no way they're not using those patents on these PS4 games. They'll play on PS4 but look best on PS5. This will also give PS5 the greatest launch in gaming history while not leaving PS4 players out of the loop. It's a win-win situation and it's more likely to release in 2019 or 2020 than 2021.
Bruh I own a PS4-Pro as well. Tons more are waiting on PS5.
Please stop giving attention to this moron’s opinions.
Sony better pump out the rest of their exclusives quick then, with 6-8 AAA games still to come there's not much time left if ps5 comes out in 2020
6-8 AAA exclusives? Have these been announced yet? Honest question. All I can think is: TLoU2 Ghost of Tsushima Death Stranding Days Gone Nioh 2 And we know Days Gone and Nioh 2 are coming next year for sure. I'm also hoping Ghost of Tsushima as well because that game looks so dang good!
Dreams likely fits in the budget and quality of a AAA game.
Jesus, I'll be old in 2021.
I’ll become 18 in 2021, I wonder how that will change my life
I'm sure Microsoft is intending on beating the PlayStation 5 to market; The only time the Xbox brand ever became more successful than the PlayStation brand - albeit just temporarily for a few years - was with the Xbox 360 and that's because the Xbox 360 jumped the line and beat the PlayStation 3 to the market by a whole year. I'm sure Microsoft and the XBox division are banking on this strategy for the next generation, so I'm sure they intend on hatching before the PlayStation 5. Going toe-to-toe, Xbox has always lost against PlayStation.
It really does not matter the power of the new Xbox, due all of its games will be available on PCs. XB weak, XB strong... It makes no difference.
Everything I read points to 2020.
Everything you read is speculation.
Good....honestly I’m not ready for next gen right now
How can the PS5 be pushed back to 2021 when there is definitive proof it wasn't launching before then to start with?
I wouldn't be too surprised by a 2021 release
He needs to give dates. Like holiday 2020, which is when i think ps5 will launch.
