Default Rumor: Ps5 (2018)

This should obviously be taken with a grain of salt but...

Sony PlayStation 5 Tipped For 2018 Release Date [REPORT]

By Christopher Morris on December 5, 2015 9:00 am in Technology

The latest rumors about Sony’s next generation PlayStation 5 indicate that we might see the new console as early as 2018. This would very much fit in with the belief of analysts that the PlayStation 4 generation is likely to be shorter than the lifespan of previous consoles. The main reason for this is that the current generation consoles are already somewhat out of date with available technology, and thus both Sony, and the competing Microsoft, are slaving away behind closed doors to work out what the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Two will look like.

PlayStation 5
Sony PlayStation 5 – Five times more powerful

With this in mind, rumors have emerged recently which suggest that Sony’s next generation PlayStation 5 will be five times more powerful in performance terms than the PlayStation 4. It is certainly essential for the Japanese corporation to pack the PlayStation 5 with as much power as possible, as this is one of the big Ppoblems that the PlayStation 4 is facing. Although Sony’s current generation console has massively outperformed the Xbox One, its inability to deliver state of the art gaming and features means that the PlayStation 5 will emerge sooner than Sony would perhaps wish for.

Central to the desire to improve the power of the PlayStation 5 will be delivering 4K graphics, and it is already suggested that this will be achieved via AMD technology. Sony has been something of a pioneer with regard to 4K, having already released the first ever mass-market 4K resolution smartphone. And it seems certain that this new display technology, already part of the entertainment landscape, will have gone mainstream by 2018.

So there are plenty of reasons to suppose that Sony may already be working on the PlayStation 5, and another such example emerged this week. A job listing was posted by Sony, suggesting that the company is seeking game game developers for a forthcoming video games console. The listing in question was for the position of Senior Game Programmer, with the job description giving away significant details about the proposed PlayStation 5.
Next generation programmer

The role of the programmer was to play a major part in developing a game for the Sony PlayStation, with this title ultimately be utilized in order to test the next generation gaming system. Indeed, the Sony advertisement notes that the game will be used “for R&D purposes related to our next generation gaming system.” The advertisement goes on to describe this job as a “very rare opportunity.”

Although the advertisement that didn’t specifically mention the PlayStation 5, it is a reasonable assumption that this is the device that Sony is indeed testing. It is obvious that the corporation would not require a game programmer for the existing PlayStation 4, so rumors are naturally already circulating that Sony is working on the next generation PlayStation 5. Although there is also the possibility that this advertisement could be related to the forthcoming project Morpheus Virtual reality system.

Reports this week have also suggested that Sony will be opting for upgraded AMD microprocessor when the PlayStation 5 is released. The inclusion of AMD would also enable Sony to ensure backwards compatibility from day one. This has been a complaint from gamers in previous console generations, and has become a weakness with recent console releases.

With the PlayStation 5 likely to embrace virtual reality in a big way, developers will have massive challenges with this new console. But these challenges shouldn’t be seen as a negative, it is also an exciting time for video game manufacturers, as they have the opportunity to reimagine the entire industry.
Yoshida speaks out

Confirming this trend, Shuhei Yoshida, President of Sony’s Worldwide Studios for Sony Computer Entertainment, has emphasized that the corporation will be providing full freedom to developers for the next generation console. Yoshida was keen to emphasize in an interview in California that game creators would not be inhibited at all when the PlayStation 5 is released.

Indeed, Yoshida suggested that Sony would collaborate closely with video game manufacturers during the development of the PlayStation 5 with the intention of ensuring that Sony ultimately produces the console that game creators desire. Yoshida implied that there would be a very open process in which the pros and cons of the PlayStation 4 were discussed in depth, with the intention of eliminating any weaknesses included in the current generation console when the PlayStation 5 is released.

Yoshida spoke of developers being able to “create their vision”, which in an era of ultra-fast processors, 4K resolution and immersive virtual reality technology is a very exciting prospect for gamers.
Physical media

In another recent report on the PlayStation 5, the editor of the PlayStation Magazine, Ben Wilson, told the electronics website TechRadar that there is a possibility that the PlayStation 5 could turn out very different from what many people are imagining. Far from the high-spec beast that many are predicting, Wilson suggested that considering the immense growth of downloadable games that there is at least a possibility that the upcoming PlayStation 5 console will place a greater emphasis on streaming.

This is something that would clearly appeal to game manufacturers, who are generally opposed to physical media for several reasons. Piracy can still be an issue with DVDs and Blu-rays, while the hassle of manufacturing physical discs is not something that game developers relish.

Furthermore, streaming services would make it more feasible for the industry to switch to a revenue model based around subscriptions rather than ownership. Many gamers oppose this, but at the same time aspects of the contemporary gaming industry, such as downloadable content, have somewhat prepared then for this unpalatable prospect.

Nonetheless, Wilson also predicts that physical media will not be phased out completely with the PlayStation 5, despite the success of Steam on the PC. Many gamers continue to prefer special editions and exclusive packaging to what Wilson describes as “invisible downloads”, and this predilection should ensure that the beloved boxed game remains part of the makeup of the PlayStation 5.

according to the article it will be 5x as powerful and be 4k ready, means it will have to have at least 12GB of GDDR5 ram for 4k gaming

by 2018 it had better be 100% 4K complaint, and actually have headroom for advances beyond that as well.

and there had better be a Destiny 5 special edition.

by 2018 1080p will be completely obsolete. If the PS4 only runs at 1080p it would be an outright failure.

2019 is my bet, or 1 year earlier than customary for Sony (7 years between gens typically).

$399

X86 architecture
AMD CPU/ GPU
16Gb HBM Ram (unified)
2Tb standard HDD, or possibly 1Tb SSD if prices fell enough
4K Blu Ray

Uggggh, I just bought a PS4 today with some Kohl's cash even though I have no interest in the bundled game. But if a new one is out in 2-3 years that's backwards compatible...bc I really only wanted it for FFXV and KH3! But it's probably just for streaming...I don't want a million consoles, lol. I still have my PS2 and PS3!

2018 seems to early as some of Sony's big games haven't even been announced yet. I don't see a GOW game coming out in 2017 and than a year later we get a new system. 2019 at the earliest IMO.

4K should be a no brainier. I just hope it's more of a graphical upgrade than the PS3 to PS4 generation was. Don't get me wrong I think PS4 games look amazing but the jump from PS3 to PS4 wasn't as big as PS2 to PS3. Though we also added HD in between them. Unlike this gen.

When ever they do decide to release the PS5 Somy needs to let us be able to plug in an external hard drive instead of making us switching the hard drive out and updating it

I said that this gen would go back to the old days of 5 to 6 years between consoles, and I hope it does. Last gen went on for way too long, we used to do just fine with the 5 to 6 year gap, someone's even less than that so why should we be sick with out dated tech for the next 8 years.

Keep em cheap and more regular staying in touch with more recent tech seems to be the best way forward.

Agreed. And for gods sake Sony, include all of the features we already have on PS4 AT LAUNCH instead of making us endure 2 years worth of updates just to get it on par with the previous console (PS4 still isn't on par with PS3 in those terms). Besides that, I expect the following...

Full PS4 backwards compatibility

Full transfer of all game saves and PSN digitally purchased content on PS4 to PS5, including wallpaper/themes.

4k compatibility is nice but I expect improved performance at 1080p for those who still don't have 4K. If a game is 30fps at 4K, it should be 60fps at 1080p.

Better multimedia support at launch. Lossless audio format support, better app support for things like ESPN, NFL Network, etc.

Custom Folder creation in the UI.

Better battery life for the controller.

External HDD support.

Video Chat support.

LOL, right, just like DVD's have become obsolete since Blu Ray's came on the market.

I still don't believe that next gen consoles will do 4k gaming, at very best we will have 1080p 60fps. These consoles will be out for example in 2018 but will be made of parts from 2016. I don't think they could make an affordable home console that will deliver 4k games by then

I'd rather have diversity of gaming than technical specs. I don't know why people still rave and crave technical abilities when we have what we have already.

Past generation release in North America.

PS1 - Sept 1995
PS2 - Oct 2000 (5 year gap)
PS3 - Nov 2006 (6 year gap)
PS4 - Nov 2013 (7 year gap)

Each generation seems to be lasting a bit longer than the prior one. If that continues the PS5 is more likely in 2020 or later than 2018.

This is nothing but a rumor because, nobody on this earth don't know what's going to happen the very next day, lest 3+ years from now.
