Forums - Sony Discussion - Ps5 still 3 years away

Was very happy to hear the news we are still a good 3 years off till ps5. should make the jump in tech a much more palatable upgrade. Are others also happy with the news, personally I never understood those that were desperate for an upgrade sooner as apart from lack of a 4k Blu-ray we just haven't advanced enough in tech to justify the move yet.

 

and for reference https://www.wsj.com/articles/next-playstation-is-three-years-off-sony-says-1527067818 (sorry don't have a non wsj link)

"TOKYO—Don’t hold your breath for the fifth-generation PlayStation.

Sony Corp. wants to spend three more years readying its next videogame move, the head of the PlayStation business said Wednesday."

sounding more like 2021. I know they are all very loose with the truth but 2020 is really 2 years, even the end of 2020 is at best 2 and half.



I'm in no rush to upgrade.



Nothing to see here, move along

Nah, 2 and a half years. Holiday 2020 it's going to launch. The whole "crouch down" thing is in reference to a forecasted drop in operating profit for PlayStation for the Fiscal Year ending 31st March 2021. As a console launch isn't usually a particularly profitable time for PlayStation I expect this to be the fiscal year the ps5 launches.

November 2020.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

No rush to upgrade here either, also, I think it was a mistake to announce that this early, it might deter people from buying a PS4 in the meantime.




Add a couple extra curves to that 3 to make an 8 and it would be even better



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

Hope you are wrong as that means a spec lockdown next year. We just aren't quite there tech wise yet, the extra 12 months would be really helpful.



I'm just wondering if we will ever get back to a time when the big three launch their main devices in the same year again? When will the XTwo launch or Switch 2?



2 years and half since it's probably going for the traditionnal holiday launch.
