Every few years, console makers like Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo will release new hardware. That’s just the speed of the cycle these days. Some think that streaming could be the future and that we will become less reliant on hardware, and while that might be true, but for now we are still using hardware. And it looks like Sony could be putting out new hardware soon, the PlayStation 5.
During an interview with the Financial Times, Sony’s CEO Kenichiro Yoshida confirmed that the company has plans to release new hardware, which is not a big surprise, but this is the first confirmation we’ve had. This pretty much confirms the PlayStation 5 even if Yoshida did not call it by name. The CEO said, “At this point, what I can say is it’s necessary to have a next-generation hardware.”
Sony has sort of confirmed the PlayStation 5 in the past, and a recent report from earlier this year saw Sony suggest that the next-gen hardware is about 3 years away. Consoles could be a thing of the past soon if things go the streaming route, but for now, Sony and Microsoft are still making them. Hopefully, we will hear more news about this new hardware very soon.
