Sony Says a Next Gen PlayStation is Necessary

Sony Says a Next Gen PlayStation is Necessary”

Sony previously shared its admiration for, and goals to offer, a fully functioning video game streaming service.

The second a new console is released a company immediately starts research and development on its successes.

"At this point, what I can say is it's necessary to have a next-generation hardware", said Yoshida.

According to a new interview with Sony's boss Kenichiro Yoshida, the platform owner is already stealthy working on aPlayStation 5 next-generation console, something that hadn't been acknowledged thus far. Now, for the first time, Sony has acknowledged the fact that PlayStation hardware will go beyond the PS4 Pro.

"Today, the games you play are very much dictated by the device you are using".

What was interesting was that several anonymous names within the Sony camp have stepped forward to say that it won't actually be that different from the PlayStation 4 other than a few tweaks in direction of potential portability and a renewed dedication to esports. A while back, there was talk of the regular, generational hardware cycle fading away to allow a more iterative approach, and we suppose it's possible the PS5 could be the turning point. Rather than focusing on streaming games over the internet - a la Netflix - Sony is apparently working on a more powerful box for running prettier games.

It clearly feels that the future of gaming remains with the home console.

Instead, it launched a remastering programme, but gamers are keen to see backwards compatibility return for the PlayStation 5.

The PlayStation 4 is the base model of Sony's current console, whereas the PlayStation 4 Pro is a visual step up.
