I see some people saying that this means Playstation is getting ready for PS5 "sooner rather than later". Okay ... sooner than? What? 2021? That was never even on the table. 

To me this does not signal some kind of 2019 release, or even a 2019 reveal. We still have Days Gone and Dreams ... and while many would argue that The Last of Us 2 and Death Stranding will be cross-platform releases, given the fact that both were announced in 2016 and are closer to completion I really would assume a remaster for both is much more likely. 

Something like this makes sense, I think: 

Q4 2019 - TLOU2, possibly Death Stranding release

Feb 2020 - PS5 announcement, possibly Death Stranding release 

E3 2020 - huge blowout 

Holiday 2020 - release 

If I recall correctly that's basically how the PS3 ended it's run and how the PS4 was announced

 

Yep...PS4 was announced at a separate event in February 2013, 9 months in advance. It’s going to be similar this time. We’ll see if the newest Resetera rumours are true, but a reveal at the 25th anniversary PSX seems more likely than another separate event.

Yeah ... that's what my timeline says, Feb 2020 - PS5 announcement. 



Are they going the route that Nintendo took with their Direct's? If so, I don't think it's going to work as well. This will probably hurt both Sony and E3. I think Microsoft is the only one benefiting from this as they will be the only company selling consoles attending E3 now.

Are their PSX events or whatever they are called doing that well? Can't understand their reasoning.



Hope they do a Direct-like showcase for Ghost of Tsushima and TLOU2.

So because thats how the launched the PS4 it means thats hat they are going to do again?

We know this much. They have cancelled E3 next year. Tht completely takes a fabuary 2019 reveal of the PS5 off the cards or a possible 2019 launch of the PS5.

We also know that 2019 would make their 25th anniversary. Whats the single biggest thing you think they can announce at a PSX 2019 event? Another limited edition console? No.

7nm fabrication is going into full swing next year, which means whatever is going to be in the PS5 can and will be finalized next year. 

These all point to a PSX 2019 announcement of the PS5 along with the announcement of certain games already anounced fr the PS4 to be launced  alongside the new console by march 2020.

This not only allows sony to launch the console with a good number of games but als at a higher price of $499. And the have its first unofficial price drop just a few months later in its first holiday season if demand for their isnt as hot at that higher price point.

Wow this something I never expected. I honestly don't know how to react, I don't follow PlayStation religiously or anything but I still watch their big events out of interest. But man what does this mean? I mean in the long term it could be something positive out of preparation for the PS5 like Nintendo did in E3 2016 before the Switch. But short term wise it was not great for Nintendo either and at least they had something to excite fans on what is the biggest video game event of the year.

I guess E3 will be between Nintendo and Microsoft next year... that'll be fun.

Hard to say that 2016 really hurt Nintendo in any way. Yes, there was a draught in terms of software output but everyone knew that WiiU is dead in early 2015 already. So, it was understandable that Nintendo prepares their next console. I remember though, that I expected them to launch it in late 2016.
