Jamesie Posted May 13, 2017 Share Posted May 13, 2017 So was just reading this rather interesting prediction from Eurogamer: we might still see a Playstation 5 this year. Quote Could Sony be releasing its next-gen PlayStation in 2018? That's the notion put forward by Maquarie Capital Securities analyst Damian Thong, cited in a recent edition of The Wall Street Journal. But is the time right to replace PlayStation 4? And what kind of hardware could Sony conceivably deliver next year? First up, it's worth pointing out that Thong is credited with predicting PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro, making him a creditable source. However, a comprehensive look through Google's news archive doesn't appear to show any prediction for the Pro that predates Kotaku's initial PlayStation 4.5 exclusive. Also worth pointing out is that Thong's prediction is nothing new - he made the same claims about a prospective PlayStation 5 launch last September. Did he predict the PS4 Slim? It certainly looks like it, but then again, Sony has made physically smaller iterations of every one of its previous consoles. That said, his CV certainly looks first-class and clearly, he knows his onions. Of course I doubt it after reading recently about how well the PS4 is doing so while I have no doubt they're working on the next console I don't think we'll see it as soon as this year yet. Now as I don't have a PS4 yet I'd love to see a PS5 release before Red Dead Redemption 2 (so that I can get a new generation console and a new generation game to play on it at the same time).
