Sony might announce the new version of PlayStation this year

The sources said that multi-year plans for projects are always shifting, but it may be too much of a stretch to think that the PlayStation 5 will arrive this year. For comparison, the PS3 launched over six years following the PS2's release in 2000, though with the PS4 Pro having given the console's games a graphical and performance boost, its technology isn't notably outdated.

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. Rumors have suggested that Sony gave PlayStation 5 "devkits" to some studios.

How powerful will the PlayStation 5 be?

What about the PS4 Pro? However, there are some people who believe a new console should be seeing the light of day soon, considering it has been quite a number of years since the eighth-generation system's release. Kotaku states that it's entirely possible that some kind of kit capable of developing console games that can't be run on the PlayStation 4 have been sent out, but that is not a great metric of how close we are to the release of the PlayStation 5.

Schreier goes on to claim that while information regarding the PS5 is "floating around", it's far less than what would be expected if the console was set for release in 2018 or 2019. That's according to a report today from Kotaku, which cites sources saying the PlayStation 5-or whatever Sony decides to call it-might not release until 2020.

But the whole memorial was down again within 20 minutes, removed by a man who called it an "insult" to Mr Osborn-Brooks. Most neighbours are reluctant to talk publicly, for fear of being drawn into a dispute that may not be over.

A dev kit is an early builds of a console's likely hardware, and early dev kits are usually just a PC built to a certain spec.

If we take a look at how Sony has done things in the past, we see that there was a gap of 7 years between the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

Rocketcat Games and Madgarden have announced that Death Road To Canada will be heading to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Switch later this month. The Pro launched in November of 2016, making it less than two years old.

If Sony has any hardware announcements to make or to tease, that could happen during E3 2018 in June.
