During a recent interview with Famitsu, Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada of Namco Bandai talked about the future of PlayStation and its network capabilities and of course, cloud services.




Harada said: "I think in the future, it will be a contest of services instead of hardware. When there's the PS5, it will probably be just a controller and a monitor. Then, the thing that will be left is the name of the service." Personally, I don't think we'll see a PS5 in the way that most think we'll see one, but maybe a smaller, less capable console with more of the computational and rendering side being done on the cloud - heavily compressed - and sent back to your 'console' or device at home.


What do you think? A PlayStation 5 that isn't a normal console.
