The First Details Of The PlayStation 5?

There will be a new PlayStation, that’s for sure. However, there is now information starting to spread out regarding the next Sony console…

SemiAccurate says that their information is not clickbait, but we decided to put a question mark into everything, because we may never know. Let’s see, though, what they came up with: in 2013, they said that the PlayStation 4 would have three cycles (PS4.1/4.2/4.3) – and now, five years later, both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One got a stronger version (PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One X). They might be knowing something that we don’t.

Thankfully, Jeuxvideo-Live revealed the information that SemiAccurate put behind a 1000-dollar annual subscription paywall. Apparently, Sony might be building the next PlayStation on AMD’s Navi architecture, but they wouldn’t use the Navi chip itself as they struck a custom deal with AMD. Instead, they’d use their Zen processor, which makes sense, if we can believe the recent rumors (third-party developers getting devkits earlier this year). The console, which would continue supporting VR, could launch even this year, but 2019, 2020 seems more realistic at the moment.

So Sony isn’t going for a brand new console after all? Evolution, not revolution?
