As for the PlayStation 4 exclusives, Sony released quite a lot of them but maintained quality. However, that momentum has slowed down in 2019 and according to Sony, it’s on purpose.

Sony’s boss Shawn Layden has noted that the company will release fewer but better games in 2019 and onwards. This not only includes exclusive games for PS4 but also for the PlayStation 5.

As the exclusive developer for PlayStation, we always have to set the high-water mark, to push the technology further than anyone else.

Sony has confirmed that it’s working on PlayStation 5 but, it’s unknown when the next-gen console will launch. While Sony is quiet on details but AMD has confirmed that PS5 and Xbox Scarlett will launch in 2020.

According to AMD CEO, Lisa Su, the company expects “significant growth” in its APU sector starting from 2020 and onwards. Both PS4 and Xbox One and their respective upgraded consoles use AMD APUs.

Given that both Microsoft and Sony intend to support Xbox One X and PS4 Pro along with next-gen consoles, it’s highly likely that PS5 and next-gen Xbox will use AMD APUs.

This falls in line with the report that PlayStation 5 features an 8-core AMD Ryzen CPU. According to the report, PlayStation 5 is a solid 4K/60 FPS console. Not only that, developers already have access to PlayStation 5 dev kits.
