Forums - Sony Discussion - Rumor: PS5 Could Be Releasing This Year. Big Focus on VR and More Details.

I'm gonna add my voice to the chorus of no's. As usual, if it does happen, I owe you a Coke.

2019 makes more sense to me.



According to someone on Era Rich from Digital Foundry said that a next gen console will be revealed this year.



Lol. This would literally be the stupidest decision in the history of stupid Sony decisions if true. 100% rumor fodder though.



Reads to me that a 2018 release is possible if Sony wanted it to be. But obviously that isn't happening.

I think he said we would see next gen console "technologies". 

At the time I understood as Zen and Vega V2 APUs .

But maybe he was also talking about real-time Ray Tracing and other AI improvements on consumer level hardware.



I think they are making sure they will be ready to release when they have to, they don't want to get stuck on PS4 and have Microsoft release before them like with PS3.

I think still think they are end of 2019 at the earliest, probably sometime in 2020 though.



I'd prefer 2020 or even 2021, although I think 2019 or 2020 are likely (late 2020 release date is the most likely to me).

I'm not interested in VR and I'm also not ready to waste more money.

Zero percent chance. What even games would they have to sell it?

Confirmed: Microsoft releasing Xbox 2 this year, lack of exclusives due to secret game development for next gen.



Having Dev kits go out early just means that Sony wants a strong launch lineup for PS5. I'm still expecting holiday 2020 for PS5 launch.
