In my view Scorpio is just a marketing tactic by Xbox (Which worked wonderfully) to confuse the market and slow down sales on PS. Should Sony wait until Scorpio is released and then drop a PS5 release when MS are all dialed in, effectively making the Scorpio redundant right out the door. Whatever they pull, the ball is truely in Sonys court right now, even though it might seem otherwise.
Why? Just why? Because Scorpio is a bit stronger? The difference between X1 and PS4 isn't that big, the difference between Scorpio and Pro wont be that big.
More importantly, when did the strongest hardware ever win a generation?
I think PlayStation 5 will launch 2019, and no Sony should not react to other company's release plans. It's not about making another company "fail" it's about creating the most successful product you can.
No, with a reason. The same reason why MS and Sony aren't so much reacting to each other but waiting for technological steps.
That would be a very bad idea from Sony. PS4 Pro is more than enough to compete with Xbox Scorpio.
Playstation 5 should launch 2020 imo.
Definitely. 2019/2020. Give us a good 6-7 year cycle, probably 7 considering the PS4 Pro is being released. They don't wanna do a Nintendo and essentially cut of support 4 years in....
Playstation '5' and Nextbox should launch when the right technique is ready for the mass market. Might totally make sense to wait until 2020/2021 for mass market 7nm products. Otherwise new hardware might be a to small step.
