The PlayStation 5 Pro Could be in Stores Surprisingly Early!

The PlayStation 5’s half-generation update hasn’t even been announced yet, and now it looks like there won’t be much time between the console’s reveal and its release, which seems rather odd given Sony’s strategy.


The Verge has reported that Sony wants all PlayStation 5 games to be certified to support the PlayStation 5 Pro. That’s not a big surprise, but the timing is, with the process set to begin as early as August. That means the console could be released in the last month of summer, but that’s unlikely. Rather, the PlayStation 5 Pro could reach consumers in one of the following months, following Sony’s history.

The PlayStation 3 hit stores in November 2006, the PlayStation 4 in November 2013, the PlayStation 4 Pro in November 2016, the PlayStation 5 in November 2020 and, exceptionally, the PlayStation VR in October 2016. Therefore, the fall release date is now an established strategy, and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see the PlayStation 5 Pro released in November 2024.

The Verge has also confirmed the PlayStation 5 Pro’s specs, but we’ve already heard and reported on them: a more powerful graphics chip, a slightly higher processor clock speed, improved ray tracing performance, and better storage capacity with more bandwidth. Following the example of the PlayStation 4, it is likely that a date for the reveal of the console can be worked out…

Alongside the PlayStation 4 Pro, the PlayStation 4 Slim was unveiled to the public in September 2016. There’s not much chance of a Slim version of the PlayStation 5 (the redesigned version available now, which doesn’t have the Blu-ray drive built in as standard, can’t be considered as such), but there’s a chance that Sony will unveil the new, unseen console alongside Nintendo’s in September.
