Riding on the success of PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro Sony is working hard on PlayStation 5 for all PS fans to watch. The launching date is, however, not certain but industry analysts believe the release will be sooner than later. With all the speculations of the new PS version, here are some of what to expect and when it is likely to be launched in the market.

What To Expect From PS 5?

PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro are definitely riding the success train. Dozens of games are lined up for PS4, which means multi-million sales are to be raked up by the company.

There is a special reason why Sony has to disrupt the existing market despite a clear advantage its own brand enjoys over the other. This has to do with how Microsoft and Sony release their consoles – the mid-cycle hardware updates of PS4 and Xbox One – that has changed how we view the consoles in general.

Considered a standard in console generation is five to seven year. This was not the norm that was seen with PS 4 Pro and Xbox One X they were merely upgraded versions from the original.

Given this scenario, fans must expect a PS 5 that is more powerful than the existing PS generations – PS 4 and PS 4 Pro. The games could be all be the same but will be experienced at higher frame rates like that of 4K.

Sony is silent on what to expect from PS 5 at this time. The PS fans can rest be assured that Sony, based on the company’s history, is working on better technical specifications of its console.

Sony has not marketed the new PlayStation so far. This does not prevent some analysts, however, to believe that PS5 will be released in 2018. Macquarie Capital Securities analyst Damian Thong has this forecast: the PlayStation 5 will be released in the second half of 2018. Thong is known for his on-target predictions of Sony consoles in the past.

This likely date of release is not at all without basis. Considering that the Nintendo Switch is climbing the sales chart and the Xbox One X by Microsoft dominating the market, Sony might be moving with the new product soon.

Market wise, however, the 2018 release appears a long shot. For one, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro is enjoying high sales with marketing leading towards the fall. Also, there are games already lined-up for PS 4 and PS 4 Pro.

A later 2019 release date, therefore, is more feasible than 2018 because other analysts believe, more people will be owning 4K TV by then. The 4K TV market in the United States alone is expected to reach 50 percent in 2019. PlayStation 5 is widely seen as the most compatible console to deliver a high-quality gaming experience.

The year 2020 is quite a long time to keep the PlayStation fans waiting. Here is the catch though: if nothing will come out in 2018 and 2019, 2020 would be the year of the release because PS 4 and PS 4 Pro is predicted to fall behind Xbox One X.
