Instead of figuring out when the PlayStation 5 will be launched, gamers should instead enjoy what the PlayStation 4 offers.

Two people that were directly familiar with Sony's new console said it is unlikely to arrive before 2020, although Sony's plans could change depending on what Microsoft does.

Sony PlayStation fans may have been rather rather eager for the advent of the next console, but it now appears that the Japanese company has no plans to introduce the console before 2020. With the PS4 still enjoying incredibly healthy sales and blockbuster first-party games such as The Last of Us 2 right around the corner, that the PS5 isn't on Sony's immediate radar isn't much of a surprise. With over 73.6 million units sold worldwide, including an impressive 5.9 million consoles sold during the 2017 holiday season alone, it is clear to see that the PS4 is still immensely popular and there would be no need for Sony to try to rush release a PS5 device in 2018. "On a multi-year project, a lot can happen to shift schedules both forward and backward", one source said.

Kotaku is reporting that the PlayStation 5 will not be released in 2018 as some rumors have suggested. "It's all about what they think is the best sweet spot in terms of hardware". The PlayStation 3 was available for seven years before being followed up. After all, those early kits are often generic pieces of hardware that aren't specifically tied to the final design of a next-gen console. So even if a studio did have its hands on a devkit, not everyone at a studio might know about it.

Despite the launch of the PS4 taking place almost five years ago, iterative upgrades such as the PS4 Pro should ensure that this console cycle lasts longer than usual. The game will also ask players to make "tough, sometimes hilarious" decisions either in single-player or two-player co-op. Since we are discussing the PlayStation, let's have a quick glance at pricing details of the now available version of PlayStation which is the PS 4 pro.
