BREAKING! The PlayStation 5 is on the way

There’s no doubt the Sony PlayStation 5 is going to blow our minds in every way: games, graphics, sound, software, and more. Every leak and report we’ve seen so far indicates that Sony is working on something truly special in the PS5, something to ensure that its dominance in this generation is followed through into the next.

Along the way that means scalping Microsoft’s next Xbox, codenamed Scarlett, with a bombastic series of blows that leaves the various versions of the Xbox Two reeling.

Of course, with such an impressive list hardware, features and games incoming, you should expect a level of hype like you’ve never seen before for a console launch. Everything should come to a head in the next year or so, and we’ve got a full and comprehensive look at what’s coming right here.

As the PlayStation 3 came out in 2006, and was followed by the PlayStation 4 in 2013, rumours circulated for months that the PlayStation 5 would launch around 2020.

Comments made by President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment America, Shawn Layden, who stated that “there will be no new hardware announcements at E3” in 2018, seemingly indicated at a sooner rather than later release date, too.

However, on 22 May 2018, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment John Kodera confirmed to The Wall Street Journal that there would be no PS5 before 2021, putting a dampener on hopes for an imminent PlayStation 5 release.

Since then, Sony seems to have shifted its thinking. With the Xbox Two aka Xbox Scarlett tipped for a 2020 launch, the PS5 launch date seems to have been adjusted to before Christmas 2019. Is that the reason Sony has pulled out of E3 2019? Maybe…

We think all the signs point to a 2019 launch for the PlayStation 5, no matter what Sony executives say. They’ll want to beat Microsoft to the punch for sure. If not in 2019, then definitely 2020 – some analysts think the PS5 will go head to head against the Xbox Two at E3 2020.
