Sony already confirmed the PlayStation 5 next-generation video gaming console is in development, and following yesterday's tipoff of PlayStation 4 Firmware 5.0 coming late this summer industry insider Tidux revealed a potential PS5 estimated time of arrival (ETA) alongside some predictions from Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter below!
Before we jump in, if you haven't seen it yet there's a new Sony MEME in the Shoutbox message of the day (MOTD) and Nintendo Switch owners will be pleased to know BigBlueBox has officially kicked off the scene with some game cartridge dumps.
Although when exactly is still unconfirmed and open for debate, following the PS5 concept designs this weekend president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment America (SIEA) and Chairman of SIE Worldwide Studios Shawn Layden officially confirmed in an interview that PlayStation 5 will be a thing... eventually!
To quote from the interview with German site Golem.de, roughly translated:
Since our last site poll on Private PS4 GameSharing Methods we've added a PS5 News section to the forums to cover all the analyst predictions, rumors and speculation leading up to the release of Sony's PlayStation 5 next-generation video gaming console!
Based on the results from an earlier poll the majority of members here believe Sony will indeed make a PS5 to compete with Microsoft's XBox Project Scorpio, and so the question in today's poll is... Will Sony Unveil PS5 / PlayStation 5 in 2018, 2019 or Beyond?
