Ex-Sony boss: PS5 is likely in an 'advanced state of design'

Sony's next-gen PlayStation 5 is most likely in an 'advanced state of design'

We should expect Sony to release their new PS5 in the coming years, with an exclusive source of TweakTown telling us during Computex last year that the PlayStation 5 will rock a discrete GPU, and not a super-weak APU like all consoles now with very under-performing CPUs.


Speaking with Polygon during the recent GamesBeat conference, former Sony Interactive Entertainment boss Andrew House said: "I'm very bullish on longer life cycles for consoles. Consoles are so under-represented and under-penetrated in so many markets around the globe. There's so much potential. Let's not forget that China is still largely (untapped)".

Sony needs to make the PS5 a truly next-gen console, where I expect 4K 60FPS as a minimum. By then, PC gamers will be enjoying NVIDIA's surely-a-smash-hit BFGDs, which will arrive as huge 65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR gaming TVs. 4K 120FPS gaming on the PC, should hopefully mean next-gen consoles offer bare minimums of 4K 60FPS with HDR, but I'm hoping 4K 120FPS that would allow next-gen PSVR experiences, too.
