PS5 Release Date: Sony’s New Console To Edge Out Nintendo and Xbox?

Rumor has it that Sony is planning to release a new gaming console called PS5. Recent reports claim that Sony’s PS5 will have new features. These features would edge up its rivals such as the Xbox and Nintendo consoles. With this, Sony is set to announce the release date in the coming months.

 

The company is expected to launch new games this year for its PS4 and PS4 Pro in 2018. While the Sony’s gaming consoles are selling well, other console brands are also competing well in the console market.

 

It can be recalled that back in 2013, Sony launched both the PS4 and Xbox One. This means that a new gaming console is likely possible. Sources claim that PS5 is expected to be released in 2020 while other reports hinted that Sony would announced the new console’s release date sooner.

 

Will Sony release PS5?

 

 

In fact, a recent report noted that the Sony has already released the PlayStation 5 developer’s kit to third-party developers. If this report is true then fans should expect an announcement from Sony the soonest.

 

Also, the reported release of the PlayStation devkits could be viewed as a positive confirmation of the planned PS5. Another indication of the planned PS5 is that both Nintendo and software giant Microsoft are looking forward to perform best in the console market. Thus, Sony is on the verge of expanding the success it has for PS4.

 

Meanwhile, Sony’s PlayStation Plus subscription service might be getting an upgraded service. The company wants to provide AAA games to their avid fans.

 

This information surfaced in the late 2017 during the Sony Corporate Strategy Meeting. In the said meeting, Sony discussed the company’s future directions and other plans including the upgrade of the PS Plus service.

PS5 Release Date: Rumors, Speculations and a New Rival?

PS5 release date might hold back ‘til 2020

PS5 release date might hold back, some analysts and tech websites have predicted. But this may change if Microsoft will move to release the Xbox Two a bit sooner than expected.

It’s certain that the PS5 will be compatible with a VR headset. And it will likely push for a good level of 4K support. But when it comes to release date, the PS5 might give way. Thanks to PS4 and PS4 Pro’s huge contributions to Sony’s sales.

This console’s release date announcement will surely be on the headlines. However, some rumors suggests that Google is up for something. And it could affect the performance of PS4 Pro, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One X in terms of popularity.

Is Google up for something?

Some speculates whether the giant company, Google, is getting ready to debut in the gaming industry. It is in connection with the latest news supporting the idea that a new venture is in the works. Big names in the industry like Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo will surely keep an eye on it.

The gist of this news is the company’s recent choice to hire the games industry veteran, Phil Harrison. Harrison is known for his long commitment as being the head of Sony’s games studios. And now, stands as the vice president and general manager at Google’s California headquarters. He played a major role in shaping the Sony PlayStation brand. And also spent a couple of years working with Microsoft’s Xbox team. With these background, he is the perfect person for a company planning to dive into a new course.

Well, Google might be preparing for the gaming industry. But there’s also a chance that they might be heading to a different direction.
Harrison will be reporting to Rick Osterloh, whose current hardware teams design Pixel smartphones. Not just that, they’re behind Google Chromebooks, smart speakers and Daydream virtual reality headsets.

“Google realizes it has a big opportunity in the intersection of augmented reality and artificial intelligence on smartphones”, Lewis Ward, the research director for gaming at consulting firm IDC said. “I suspect Phil is managing a team to pull together disparate internal efforts and focus it in direction that will answer where Apple is going and where Amazon could go.”

Be it Augmented Reality, or VR gaming, we consumers expect that these giants have a lot of surprises for us this 2018.
