PlayStation5: Backwards Compatible PS5 Likely Coming 2019 Says Top Analyst
The latest word from Sony holds confirmation that the PlayStation 5 is currently in development. Hence, one industry insider is willing to bet that consumers can expect an official release date in 2019.
Backward Compatible PS5 Likely Coming 2019
Since the release of the first PlayStation 4 model, Sony has developed significant upgrades to the video game consoles core technology with the release of the PS4 Slim and the PS4 Pro. It was the latter of which crucially afforded consumers an upgraded GPU, a higher CPU clock rate, and 4K supported graphics.
Now, it would appear that Sony is intent on taking the next step forward in the gaming industry given with the PlayStation 5 officially under development - and with a potential release date window set for as early as 2019, as Screen Rant reports.
According to GamingBolt, the PlayStation 5 is currently under development and will be a major step forward for the brand that will represent a generational leap past the PS4. Just what that might mean for the average consumer is of the utmost interest and importance, to which Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter has surmised the following:
"I really like Shawn and I don't think he is attempting to mislead anybody. The PlayStation 4 Pro is better [from a technical perspective] than the PS4, so I think that's a half step towards the PlayStation 5. I think the PS5 will be another half step. So he is being honest when he said he is not doing a half step but the PlayStation 5...how much faster can it be? It will surely support 4K. Will it support 240 frames per second? Great. Will it play games that were made for the PlayStation 4 Pro? That's the question. I think it will. So I think they will build a console that will backward compatible with the PS4 Pro. So I think it will be perceived by the consumers to be a half step and I think Shawn is telling the truth when he says it's will be a full fledged console.
