The well-known video game analyst Michael Pachter, Has recently released an interview to the magazine "GamingBolt". Fulcrum of the same, as you will understand, the future PlayStation 5. Everything starts from two weeks ago by the boss of PlayStation America, Shawn Layden, with whom he confirmed that the PlayStation 5 is under development. Here are the highlights of the interview.
"The PlayStation 4 Pro is technically better than the PS4, representing a step towards the PlayStation 5. PS5 will thus be the other half step.
How Much Better? Surely it will support 4k. Will it support 240 frames per second? Great. Will it be compatible with games for the PS4 Pro? This is the question. I think so, which will make it perceive consumers as a step forward. "
He could not miss it a market analysis, much more lucid and objective or less "imaginative".
"I do not think I can go out in the 2018. 2019 or 2020, most likely the 2019. Sony is taking good measures because they are going to produce a 4K compatible device when the 4K TV market reaches 50% in the US and 35% in the rest of the world. In any case, I think they already know how to move. "
Personally, 2020 could be more likely than a "premature" 2019. Going back in time, PS1 to PS2 passed 6 years, from PS2 to PS3 about 8. In addition, the medium with the PS4 Pro (as he defines it and on which we can also agree) may delay the output instead of anticipating it, buffering the expectations. Time will tell.
