I think even sony must be confused with the success of PS4 which might have thrown off their internal estimate of a new console by 2019, Sony must have expected Ps4 Pro to take off so that they can kill off the base PS4, but that didnt happen, So i think before Ps5 announcement, we will hear the announcement of Base Ps4 ceasing production and PS4 Pro taking its place which will be around 2019.

So Sony could delay PS5 to improve it further, which will also give developers some more time to work on end gen games port for the launch, also PSvr2 (if thats a thing) will greatly benefit from concurrent development, My bet is Fall 2020

I don’t think that Sony ever expected the Pro to take off. They always marketed it as a nice bonus for PSVR and 4K TV owners, but never as an essential upgrade like MS did with the X1X. They for sure know that price is the big deciding factor, not power.

Strong rumors suggest AMD arch meaning it will play all ps4 games. but we shall see.

Going by history, backwards compatibility is not a primary prerogative of Sony's. And going by current trends of PS4 sales, why would Sony want to butcher PS4 hardware sales by allowing backwards compatibility with the PS5?

The last gens the architecture changed heavily from generation to generation. Next gen will most likely also see an X86 based system, which imho makes BC very likely. 

Sony can easily miss out on hardware sales for PS4 if it benefits the PS5. The sooner they start building their future the better. It could even benefit PS4 sales late in the cycle, if people would know all their games would also work on the next new system.

I can’t imagine they’d leave the field of BC to MS, when the main reason for no BC on PS4, the Cell’s difficult architecture, is not a thing anymore.



Probably 2020, cause that should give Sony enough time to develop decent launch titles



2020 or 2021.

Why would Sony kill off the base PS4 when it is perfectly capable of offering PS4/XBO games at 720p -1080p for years to come? They can get into homes for $100 in the next year or two, while adding HDMI 2.1 and a 4K Video chip to make it one of the best streamers on the market. It is an excellent option to combat the Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, and Roku on the low end set top box market.

I'm hoping 2022



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

exactly! PS3 had terrible complicated arc.

 

They would be fools to not allow BC on the ps5 because it is only adds benefits for the company.

interesting. it true the ps4 is selling so strong but isn't a 8 year cycle a bit long especially now a days?

 

I guess I can see a 2021 at the latest in Nov as usual because of sales.  

 

But sony did say by 2020 50% of the buying public will have 4k tv's so maybe 2020 they will give us PS5 4k 60fps system. Thats the critical point 50% apparently?

The funny thing is that the generations will only become longer as the differences between them become less obvious.

Look at the PS4, chances are, the PS5 would not make PS4 games look like crap. As would be even less obvious going from PS5 to PS6. Sad thing is that "graphics" is the single largest marketing front of any new generation of hardware. So until the hardware is there to make a significantly noticeable jump in graphics at an affordable console price, don't expect to see the PS5.

So as i keep saying in threads like these, look to whenever chips from amd or nvidia are manufactured on a 7/10nm process. The new consoles from sony and MS will show up around a year or two after that. NOT BEFORE.

2020 earliest. I could see 2019 if this year is a slump sales wise.
