Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony president on PS4 successor: “It’s necessary to have a next-generation hardware”

Why are we still talking about smartphones? They're not affecting them. Sony have done better this gen than last gen when there were less smartphones.

Sony have broken their own records twice this year in game sales, whilst smartphone gaming has been at it's biggest. Jesus.

 Sony president on PS4 successor: “It’s necessary to have a next-generation hardware”

Early indications reportedly claim future PlayStation is not a major departure.

Sony president and CEO Kenichiro Yoshida has suggested that the company is planning the release of a next-generation PlayStation.

“At this point, what I can say is it’s necessary to have a next-generation hardware,” Yoshida told Financial Times. He declined to formally name the future console “PlayStation 5.”

Yoshida’s comments were in response to debate over how Sony should address the rising global smartphone games market and the shifting habits of consumers as it readies game studios and the global market for a PlayStation 4 successor.

Financial Times relayed rumors within the industry that Sony might also be planning a tablet that would connect to multiple devices “as online streaming of games becomes more widespread and the company seeks to derive ever greater synergies between its games and movie divisions.”

The publication also cited “people in the games publishing industry with knowledge of Sony’s plans for a future console” who said early indications were that the next-generation PlayStation might have a similar fundamental architecture to PlayStation 4 and not represent a major departure from the console.

Back in April, several game development sources indicated that a PlayStation 5 would not release until 2020 at the earliest.

At my rate, I don't see myself buying the new PlayStation less than three years after its release.

thank you Sony



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

Lads I'm talking about the uniformed less hard-core Gamer who might be thinking of getting a pro or a ps4. Obviously they won't directly pick this random quote up but if all the mainstream media picks this up and word spreads amongst the casually informed consumer they might be put off buying a ps4. Just a thought. Imo Sony would be better saying nothing to the media until they are ready to announce. Now maybe they want Microsoft to think they're coming sooner then they are. Possibly forcing ms to jump the gun too soon after the xbox x.



Sweet! I can't wait to see what kind of power the ps5 will run in hardware. Really would be cool if they made a portable handheld that could run all ps5 games in 1080p and the main console in 4k



I truly believe PS5 will be released in Nov 2020, and it will be at least 3 times more powerful than XBoxOne X. I'm ready to place a bet on it.

ps5 will release xmas 2019 and will get ahead on the xbox scarlet. would be amazing releasing sooner than the next xbox

 

i also think next gen consoles will be 4k 60fps gaming, would be difficult recomending a casual gamer on getting a pc over a console if thats the case



...not much time to post anymore, used to be awesome on here really good fond memories from VGchartz...

PSN: Skeeuk - XBL: SkeeUK - PC: Skeeuk

really miss the VGCHARTZ of 2008 - 2013...

No.

Why not? Imo people will say oh ps5 coming why upgrade to the ps4 Pro. Or next year they might just say not buying ps4 at all. 

Price is key. If the PS5 hits next year, we're going to have a PS4 at $199, a Pro at $299, with the PS5 hitting shelves at $399-$449. People who are budget conscious will still pick up the cheaper PS4 or Pro.

Very true. Smartphones only affected the dedicated HH market, which makes sense. It's why Nintendo adopted the hybrid model. 



I just want the PS5 to be backwards compatible since there will be a lot of PS4 games i will not have finished by the time it comes out, (heck i sitll have PS3 games i havent touched yet).

MS just announced xCloud. Their future streaming plans. Just by chance... PS right now makes it clear that next gen hardware will be necessary. PS is simply trying to make XB look bad. MS says our future tech is streaming, which you all know won't be quite as good as dedicated hardware, even though it'll be much cheaper, and PS is saying your going to need even stronger hardware than you have now, for the games that are coming in the future, regardless of the price. This is PS flexing a bit, sort of like when the PS4 was announced and performed better than the XB1 media box strategy. It's also PS trying to get early mind share when it comes to next gen and how streaming won't be enough to properly enjoy those future games, so they seem to be hinting. It also makes me think PS isn't going to release a streaming only box anytime soon.



2020 is my bet. The hardware jump on the GPU side will be pretty minimal all things considered... AMD's GPU's are just hot, slow, inefficient and large. (expensive) and AMD isn't investing enough R&D to improve their designs.

The CPU and Ram side of the equation is another matter entirely, that is where we will get the biggest benefits.

If Microsoft skips Navi and goes with AMD's Next Gen, they will have a big advantage.
