Sony Say a Playstation 5 Will Come When Developers Need It

With technology moving so fast and gaming becoming so advanced, hardware is always an issue for consoles. With this in mind when will Sony have to make that leap to the Playstation 5?

This is a question that was raised to Sony Worldwode Studios President Shushei Yoshida in a recent interview with Re/code. When asked when the company would look to move to the Playstation 5, he had this to say:

“It’s really up to the game creators,” Yoshida said. “If they still feel that we need more machine power — ‘We want to realize this and that and that, but we cannot do [it] with PS4’ — if that’s the case, there’s a good reason to have PS5, so that developers can create their vision. So, we’ll see.”

It should be noted of course that this wouldn’t be something that happened anytime soon, this would be years down the line. We do have to wonder though when will the hardware consoles are using now start to age? Hopefully not anytime soon.

While we can look to the PC and see how quickly these machines can be updated and provide impressive looks into the future, the only way to do this is by being willing to pay a lot of money. This is something that console users don’t have to do. The fact that being “cutting edge” with technology also runs the risk of more volatile systems is also something that makers of consoles have to be aware of.

For now, consoles are safe with the power they have. While there may be restrictions they still continue to impress, and provide the gameplay that gamers expect. As Yoshida said, if the developers aren’t crying out for more power, right now we don’t need it.

What are your thoughts on the future of consoles, when will we need a Playstation 5, or the next Xbox? Let us know your view on the subject below.
