Well, a wireless and smaller PSVR could turn out to be very interesting next gen. Though I generally prefer when manufacturers innovate through software (e.g. Dreams, Splatoon) rather than hardware (e.g. Vita, Wii U). The PS4 has given me loads of fun so if that's a boring console, I won't necessarily be unhappy with a "boring" PS5 either.

Consumers have largely ignored novel features on the PS platforms so why wouldn't Sony go with something that works instead?
