Proceeding confirmation of PS5 backwards compatibility and 8K output, it appears is Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) is finally starting to open up with bits of information on their next-generation PlayStation 5 console! :sneaky:

According to WSJ Technology Reporter Takashi Mochizuki via Gematsu.com, as part of their FY2018 Consolidated Financial Results meeting today Sony stated the PS5 will not launch within the current fiscal year that ends on March 31, 2020... according to Ace Research Institute Analyst Hideki Yasuda it won't be expected until November 2020.

Here's what else came out of the fiscal year meeting (18q4_sonypre.pdf) from Sony thus far from the Tweets below:
  • No next-gen PlayStation launch over next 12 months
  • PS Now has been ave. 40% annual growth since launch, now 700,000 users
  • Much of Y31.1 billion (difference between past fy op vs this fy op outlook) to be invested to develop next PlayStation console
By the answer from SIE, "the possibility that the next generation of PlayStation will be out by April 2020" is now 0.

Remember to save up and get two PlayStation 5 launch consoles, one for online play and the other for PS5 jailbreaking when it becomes a thing. :geek:

No thank you. After all these years, sony managed to release about 20 play worthy exclusives, which only half are great games.

The ps5 will offer absolutely nothing comparing to pc gaming rigs. Maybe an extra god of war and some other game.

The exclusives decline will be noticeable as it was for ps4 vs ps3. Not even ps4 right now is worth a second online play console.

Oh yea the important news, no new ps4 kexploit until early 2021 lol.
