Just yesterday, we posted a report wherein Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida commented that he’s not sure if there will even be a PlayStation 5. While Yoshida made that comment way back in February of 2015, it’s still an interesting scenario.
With that in mind, we’ve decided to tackle the question head-on in this latest Now Loading entry. Now, some might be wondering why this is even a discussion since, y’know, the PS4 has been selling like it’s going out style. But with the recent PS4K rumors cropping up non-stop, the PS5 question is now more important than ever.
Will Sony develop a PlayStation 5 or will the company start to release upgrades to its existing consoles and re-brand it in some way, which it seems to be doing with the PS4K — assuming what we’ve heard so far is true, of course. Do bear in mind though that what we know of PS4K (or NEO) is all based on reports and rumors, which Sony has yet to address. There’s a chance that it could be a redesigned PS4 with just the ability to play 4K videos, and be given a slight power boost to be able to output all games at 1080p resolution and 60 frames-per-second (highly likely), or it could be the start of a new generation of the PlayStation brand — one where mid-generation upgrades are now a thing.
What do we think about it? Check the gallery below for the staff responses.
