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

If VR is baked in at the silicon level in PS5, will it be a burden for traditional games like Kinect 2 integration was with the reserved resources?

Its more like a co-proccessor, a small extra chip, so no.

You see that little box, where all the wires go, between the PS4 and the PSVR?

That would probably not be needed in the future for PS5, as a result, of whatever is in there, being inside the PS5 instead on-chip.

Less wires, easier setups, lower costs of PSVR.
(however I suspect there will be a PSVR 2.0)

I could imagine one developer utilizing the dev kit right now and that's Guerilla Game. I can insane and Third party as well especially Platinum Games now that Nier: Automata is out of the way over a year. Naughty might honestly be developing for both PS4 and 5.



If PS5 releases first then XboxNext might be a little more powerful. Are there any rumors on Microsoft side?

O yeah, so its more like an additional "onboard controller" then a reserved CPU-GPU pipeline - thanks;)



It won't launch this year, but 2019 makes perfect sense. When rumors of the Neo were floating around, naysayers were using the same arguments as they use now against a 2019 launch. It shouldn't be forgotten that Sony didn't deem the PS4 powerful enough to last a generation, so the PS4 Pro too is unlikely to have a longer life.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

2019 seems too early, but much more plausible. I don't really see the point of pushing the ceiling on graphical capabilities when so few are able to with what we have now.

Thank you!!!

I don't know why people can't use a little bit of logic 



I think this is absolutely asinine. For every obvious reason, but also the fact that this would mean they would be releasing a new console months from now, yet haven’t even announced it yet (and at this point it would just be announced at E3, just 5 months before it would release).

Ps5 releasing this year would be completely idiotic. Ps4 still has awesome momentum right now, with last year being its best year to date (even without a price cut), and this year having the potential to top 2017 if they do a price cut. Ontop of that, PS4 has 4 games releasing in the next 2 years (TLoU p2, GoW, Spider-Man, Death Stranding) that each have the potential to be bigger than every previous exclusive (save for maybe U4). Even just announcing ps5 would detract from the attention they want focused on their very profitable ps4 and all of its exclusives.



Yes, 2019, very much what i expect. People who think its to early, forget the pivotal VR, that needs a sound base. PS VR released Oct. 2016. It's 2018, 2019 PS5 release, 2020 PS VR 2. That would be a gap of 3-4 years. It was predicted it would be around 2-3 years between generations. HTC recently released a new Vive version.

When is Sony suppose to release PS 5? Q4 2020? PS VR 2021? Five years is a lot in the fast moving tech industry of today.



Hunting Season is done...

VR needs to get actual games that are worth it before it can be "pivotal". It ain't there yet.
