PlayStation 5 "Necessary" Now, Says Sony

"At this point, what I can say is it's necessary to have a next-generation hardware", Yoshida told the magazine.

Sony isn't done with its traditional consoles just yet, however, as CEO Kenichiro Yoshida revealed to the Financial Times that a PlayStation 4 (PS4) successor is now in the works. In the mean time, let us know what you think about this news, and what the next PlayStation should be.

The PS4 launched back in November 2013 alongside the Xbox One, meaning both consoles are nearly five-years-old.

From there, the Financial Times made public a few key rumors about the next generation, including the ability to stream on more devices, "as online streaming of games becomes more widespread and the company seeks to derive ever greater synergies between its games and movie divisions". Each was its own hardware "generation", more capable than the previous generation. Whether that is true or not, it does not appear Sony is eager to move away from traditional game consoles. It also costs $100 more. Some believe it's an indication backward compatibility is returning to the brand, courtesy of the PlayStation 5.

So, there you have it - the latest clue, if one was needed, that we'll be getting the PlayStation 5.

"We will use the next three years to prepare the next step", PlayStation head John Kodera said back in May, according to The Wall Street Journal, in a reference to the PlayStation 4's successor. As long as the PS4 continues to sell, it wouldn't make much sense for Sony to start talking about how the console will soon be antiquated.
