They are saying probably Christmas. It's a great move if so, because they'll get a huge lead on MS, which won't be able to respond for months if not a year or longer, due to just having released the X.

Industry sources: The PlayStation 5 is still a ways off

2019 or 2020.

Sounds more believable, to be honest.

Reading the article from Wired helps me not feel so bad for not currently owning a PS4. The PS5 will be backwards compatible with PS4 and PS4 VR.

All of the other changes currently announced including Solid State Drives sound awesome, too. I can't wait to see what other cool features they are adding, and what kinds of games developers are making for the system.

Tom Warren wrote:Sony is finally revealing what the PlayStation 5 looks like. After nearly an hour of PS5 game announcements, Sony revealed the hardware design after teasing it for the duration of its PS5 live event today. The PS5 console includes a white-and-black design to match the new controller that will be included in the box.

The PS5 stands vertically, like the Xbox Series X is primarily designed to be placed, and will include two versions: one with a 4K Blu-ray drive and a pure Digital Edition. The PS5 variant without the optical drive looks substantially thinner than the regular model, thanks to the removal of the drive.
