When you are talking about rumors related to Xbox Two and Playstation 5, you can be sure that Xbox Two is happening. However, Sony doesn’t seem to be sure about PS5. Phil Spencer of Microsoft said that there is no doubt about the fact that Xbox One is the most important gaming device in the company.
He also said that people should fully expect to see another console from Microsoft. Meanwhile, Shuhei Yoshida, the President of Sony Worldwide Studios had an interview with Recode. From the interview, it seems like PlayStation 5 will release in time. Yoshida said that it all depends on the game creators.
If they feel that they need more machine power, for instance, if they want this and that, and it’s not possible with PS4, then Sony has a good reason for developing PS5. By doing so, developers will be able to make their vision come true with a brand new platform. Shuhei Yoshida was asked several questions by Lorne Lanning, Odd World creator, and the entire conversation was posted by a NeoGAF user.
When asked about the PlayStation 5’s looks, Yoshida hinted that it needs to be agiler. We don’t know what the future holds for us, so how can we adapt to it faster? It was exactly the way in which Yoshida was thinking.
The concept of releasing a device that will last several years in the future is slowly degrading. At the same time, a person from AMD hinted that new console platforms are coming out.
Ever since the birth of PlayStation, Sony has already sold more than 100 million units worldwide. Xbox is not far behind when it comes to the competition.
It is clear that both these consoles will be better than its previous generations. According to Robbie Bach (Ex-Chief Xbox Officer), upcoming consoles will look a lot different. Devinder Kumar from AMD suggested that next-generation consoles are on their way.
Keep in mind that AMD supplies processors for both PlayStation and Xbox consoles. VR technology is rising, and there are a lot of VR devices in the market already. People are currently wondering how well these games will perform on VR consoles. It is possible that Xbox Two and PS5 will be taking the VR route.
Further reports indicate that the next console from Sony is the PlayStation 4.5 that will support 4K gaming. The console is expected to release in September this year.Therefore, PS5 could, in fact, be the PlayStation 4.5 or PlayStation Neo as some like to call it.
PS4.5 seems like a mid-generation upgrade that will offer 4K output and excellent graphics performance. Sony confirmed that this console is real, just days before it was supposed to take the stage on E3. Others confirmed that we wouldn’t see it at E3 2016.
PS4.5 will be compatible with all PS4 titles. You can expect the cost to be more than the PS4. PS4 Neo’s main rival, Xbox One S was revealed in E3. Feel free to check it out!
The PS4.5 console will be greatly suited to VR and graphics-heavy games. With the upgraded hardware in the new mid-generation console, gamers won’t need a secondary box to power the VR headset, which is presently required on the PS4. Giant Bomb reported that the NEO would feature a higher clock speed than the PS4.
