Sony on PlayStation 5: "it’s necessary to have a next-generation hardware"

PlayStation Sony PS4 Play Station 4 1

"At this point, what I can say is it's necessary to have a next-generation hardware", Sony president Kenichiro Yoshida told the Financial Times for a story published Tuesday. Yoshida wouldn't commit to a name, or explain what form that hardware would take.

They've often hinted as much too, with Microsoft confirming new consoles at E3 in June and Sony being only slightly more circumspect about their plans. In the mean time, let us know what you think about this news, and what the next PlayStation should be. Still, all good things must come to an end eventually, and with Microsoft confirming that it is indeed working on the next Xbox earlier this year, Sony has made a decision to follow suit.

It's the traditional format for the video game business: Produce a new, more powerful game console every 5 to 10 years that's distinct from previous hardware generations. The PlayStation 3 was also a commercial success.

A couple weeks ago, Sony (snejf) said it was experimenting with letting people play the hit game Fortnite across the PS4, Android, iOS, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Windows and Mac machines. Kodera still sees potential in portable gaming, and thinks it shouldn't be separated from console gaming but seen as another way to experience gaming.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un wants Pope Francis to visit
While Kim's actions since have fallen short of Washington's demands, the Trump administration is preparing for a second summit. Trump tweeted earlier Sunday Kim and Pompeo "had a good meeting".

Sources speaking with the Financial Times said that the next PlayStation console, "might not represent a major departure from the PS4". That's not such a surprise: More than ever, players are demanding that their digital game libraries carry forward.

The biggest question of all though is when the PlayStation 5, assuming that's what it's called, will be announced and released.

A patent filed by Sony, "remastering by emulation", alludes to a new-fangled method for presenting updated textures in older titles so they can look their best on higher-definition displays.

While it's too soon to speak for the next-next generation, it is likely reassuring to PlayStation fans that there will be at least one more console in the works.
