The Sony Playstation 5 is perhaps one of the hottest topics pertaining to the world of video games now with gaming enthusiasts all over the world awaiting the new console by Sony giving way to a large rumour mill surrounding the device and what it might have in store for us. But then one of the biggest questions surrounding the Playstation 5 is regarding when the high-end console from Sony will actually be launched. Sony is reportedly working on shorter timeframes between its PlayStation launches which means we won’t have to wait too long for the next Sony console. Now how much is too long? Sony’s PS4 Pro has just very recently been introduced into the market and judging by the pattern in which Sony tends to launch their consoles, we can hope a PS5 being possibly rolled out by 2020.
The first Playstation was launched in 1994, followed by the PS2 in 2000, the PS3 in 2006 and finally the PS4 in 2013. Judging by the year gaps, the tech giants have consistently maintained more or less a 6 year gap between the launch of the gaming consoles. The PS4 Pro was made available to consumers in November 2016 and based on the said pattern, the PS5 release date could even extend further to a possible 2021.
The Playstation 5 is supposed to come with technology unparalleled to anything we have seen in the world of console gaming so far and that is saying something. The upcoming console is pegged to be a true 4k console allowing Playstation enthusiasts to play their preferred games in perhaps the best digital format available and incorporating a host of these features under hood does take up quite a bit of time. Also, with the advent of Virtual technology, VR enabling is also one of the key features associated with the upcoming PS5. Sony has already moved forward with leaps and bounds when it comes to the Virtual Reality experience with their own company VR headset, the PS VR. However, the Playstation 5 is pegged to sport all the specifications pertaining to Virtual Reality with various reports suggesting that the new console will have a spate VR headset designed specifically for it.
All this being said, there is a lot of time before any of the speculations surrounding the upcoming beats of a console from Sony will even materialize. One can only have faith in the fact that Sony would shed light on the release date of the Playstation 5 soon giving gaming enthusiasts something to look forward.
One thing though, that is absolutely certain for now is that the PS5 is coming. And it will change gaming as we know today for sure.
