PS5: Next-Generation PlayStation Hardware Is “Necessary” According to Sony CEO

Share this:

Sony has finally spoken out on the next-generation PlayStation hardware, though it didn’t exactly say the term “PS5” or PlayStation 5, as it no doubt will most likely be called.

Talking to the Financial Times, Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida states, “At this point, what I can say is it’s necessary to have a next-generation hardware.” Again, there’s no mention of the word PS5, but Sony would be foolish to drop the PlayStation moniker given how strong it is. And of course, there’s no surprise that a successor to the PS4 is coming given how successful the console has been this generation.

Are you ready for the PS5? When do you think will it be released?
