Video Games: While the new Xbox One Scorpio is about to be presented, the speculation continues about the release of the PlayStation 5 …
Sony has not leaked the release date of the long awaited PlayStation 5. This situation obviously does not prevent rumors from spreading. According to Damian Thong of Macquarie enterprise, the new Sony console could come out in the second half of 2018.
The analyst uses the financial projections of the company that provides a 13% increase in profits over the period 2018-2019. An analysis that seems more or less relevant given that the Japanese company does not manufacture only in the video games market but also in the photo and smartphones markets as well.
Console of ‘incredible’ power
Damian Thong goes even further by announcing that the “Playstation 5” proposes a power of 10 teraflops, where its competitor, the Xbox One Scorpio – to be presented this year – shows 6 teraflops. “IMPOSSIBLE” according to some media specialists explaining that such technology would cost far too much for a console to be able to offer a price corresponding to the market.
According to Michael Pachter, another analyst specializing in video games, the Sony console is to be released in 2020, so it remains to be seen which of the two will be right.
