Sony confirms next-generation Playstation console is in the works

Sony confirms next-generation Playstation console is in the works

But we've all suspected for a long time that the next Xbox and PlayStation consoles couldn't be more than a few years away from announcement. Currently, details on the new system were not disclosed and Sony refuses to give the console a name for the time being.

In an interview with the Financial Times, Sony president and CEO Kenichiro Yoshida claimed that his company is working towards their next console.

The PlayStation 4 is the base model of Sony's current console, whereas the PlayStation 4 Pro is a visual step up. It also costs $100 more.

According a recent leak regarding that commentary, "People in the games publishing industry with knowledge of Sony's plans for a future console said that early indications were that it might not represent a major departure from the PS4, and that the fundamental architecture would be similar". That's not such a surprise: More than ever, players are demanding that their digital game libraries carry forward.

It stopped short of calling it a PlayStation 5, but Sony has acknowledged it's busy creating new video games hardware.

The biggest question of all though is when the PlayStation 5, assuming that's what it's called, will be announced and released. Microsoft's Xbox One is in a distant second place, and Nintendo's Switch is in a league of its own. The PlayStation's strength comes from the catalog of exclusive games, which included Marvel's Spider-Man and God of War in this year alone. It plays the same games, but makes them look prettier and load more quickly.

Regardless of what Sony declined to say, we now know that new hardware is in the works.
