Alongside the Microsoft Xbox, Sony’s PlayStation is perhaps one of the most used consoles in the gaming world.
It was founded in the wake of World War II after Masaru Ibuka started an electronics shop in Tokyo, Japan.
And the business has grown to be extremely diverse.
This includes professional electronics, entertainment, financial services, the music industry, gaming, and the TV industry.
They own the largest music entertainment business in the world.
So it’s certainly safe to say that they are a company that knows what they’re doing.
Their iconic PlayStation.
And fast-forward twenty-five-years, the PlayStation has since had 8 different generations including many other pieces of hardware and add-ons.
And this was also when the PlayStation App was introduced, allowing users to use their smartphones and tablets as a second screen to enhance gameplay.
The technology now used is truly amazing…
And Sony is now one of the leading technology companies in the world.
Fans have been eagerly anticipating the release of the new generation PlayStation.
And now, the wait is finally over.
In April last year, it was announced by video game designer Mark Cerny that the PlayStation 5 will be coming in 2020.
The PlayStation 5 website went live a few months ago.
“We’ve begun to share some of the incredible features you can expect from PlayStation 5, but we’re not quite ready to fully unveil the next generation of PlayStation,” reads the company’s statement on the website.
“Sign up to be among the first to receive updates as we announce them, including news on the PS5 release date, PS5 price and the upcoming roster of PS5 launch games,” the website goes on to say.
Sony’s chief financial officer Hiroki Totoki explained why it’s still early days to determine the cost of it.
“First, we must absolutely control the labor cost, the personnel cost, it must be controlled,” he said, “And the initial ramp up, how much can we prepare initially, we will work on the production and the sales and we will have to prepare the right volume as we launch this.”
So it looks like fans have a little longer to wait for those answers…
“What is not very clear or visible is because we are competing in the space so it’s very difficult to discuss anything about the price at this point of time, and depending upon the price level, we may have to determine the promotion that we are going to deploy and how much costs we are prepared to pay,” he went on to say.
But, with a huge thanks to the internet…
Details about the new console have been leaked online over the last couple of months.
From what the leaks have been suggesting, things sound pretty interesting…
Allegedly, the PlayStation 5 will support 8K gaming and work with all old PS4 games when it launches later this year.
But now, we are so close to formally finding out these details.
Because, today, Sony has revealed the date of their highly anticipated Playstation 5 event.
Because June 4th is the day the brand new Playstation 5 will be revealed, in all it’s glory.
The event is scheduled to take place at 1 p.m. PDT, and will be live-streamed – it will also give us a first glimpse at some of the games that’ll be playable on the PlayStation 5.
We can’t wait.
