"Kodera also noted that while Sony is investing in first-party, it is not entirely for the creation of new IP. The refreshment of existing IP and development of successful IP as franchises are also part of the company’s plan to strengthen content."

A.K.A Horizon 2 is coming. There's been basically zero sequels to exclusive PS4 games so far, as they start to move developers onto projects for the PS5's early years they'll probably begin to make games that make use of the existing assets and engines from previous games to continue to release software on PS4 with less work.

After all PS3 had 3 Uncharteds, 3 Resistance's, 4 Ratchet's, 2 Infamous Games 2 LBPS, 3 Motorstorms, etc. This generation so far has had next to no first party series with multiple entries. So they'll want to start cranking the machine to push out games that can be made with less work due to the foundations already being in place, freeing up staff to start more long-term projects for the PS5.

To be fair though, last gen outstayed it's welcome by quite a few years. I don't think Horizon 2 will end up on the PS4, there's just not enough time for it I don't think.

I'm even thinking LoU2 might be cross gen.

Oh, and 1 last thing. 8K on anything under 70", meh. 8K on 70" or more, bring it.

Depends who you ask.

I prefer pixel density over distant viewing on big screens. So 8k on a small-ish screen is heavens to me.

For me 4k on 65" at 6ft from screen is quite good at the moment.

LOl, my though was right 2020 - 2021. It Means there will be more exclusives coming to PS4 after the last of US 2 , Ghost of Tsushisima and another new IP probably from SONY and also sequel to popular ip that had been released on PS4 or PS3 . FF 7 remake probably going to be a PS4 and PS5 exclusives.

Makes me wonder if some titles like the next God of War or Horizon will be developed with the PS4 and the PS5 in mind, as bridge games

Yes , the idea also come to  my mind,  but with PS5 will probably able to play backward compatibility games from PS4 i doubt that.

Final stage for PS4 on market and PS5 launch in 2021. dont make sense.
I still go with 2019/2020. launch.



You guys also need to consider new 4k screens tech by 2019 and 2020. SONY and Samsung are in developing a new OLED tech that will last and have a bright peek like LCD. It called microLED, and also it will have less respond time for games and faster frame rates. This probably going to be mass produce in 2021 and the price of 4k TV will be far cheaper compared from today standard.



Also i forgot to mention they need to wait for the RAM price to be more stable and cheaper , there is something wrong with RAM price at the moment.



Good gives me more time to get through my back catalogue of unopened PS4 games



2021 release sounds fine to me. I'm still in no rush to move to a new console generation since I have a huge number of games still to buy and play on the current gen systems. Not that I'm really planning on buying any console at launch. If the PS5 is released in 2021, then I'll probably get it in 2023 at the earliest.
