    Default Next Gen Consoles Might Come Sooner Rather Than Later!

    Despite both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles still going strong for Sony and Microsoft respectively, it likely seems that the next generation systems are already in the pipeline. The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Two (arbitary terms) are both anticipated before the end of the decade, and many video game analysts believe that the two new machines will arrive sooner than previous generations of the console series.

    PlayStation and Xbox consoles have existed in the mainstream for around seven years, with the overall cycle of a machine roughly lasting for a decade. But it is believed that the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Two could go on sale sooner than anticipated for several reasons. Above all else, both consoles will look out of date in technology terms by 2020, and both Sony and Microsoft are expected to announce concrete plans about their replacements before then. And the latest news on these two flagship Systems is that AMD is apparently already planning to offer a huge performance boost for both consoles. This will be considered essential for both systems as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Two both attempt to embrace 4K gaming. By the time that the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Two hit the stores, 4K resolution products will be considered mainstream. Indeed, Sony itself recently released the world’s first 4K smartphone; an indication that the Japanese corporation recognizes the prominence of this technology. But neither the PlayStation 4 nor Xbox One have the capabilities to deal with this resolution. Although both consoles are theoretically optimized to provide 4K, in reality they simply don’t possess the processing power to do so. This has led to suggestions in the media that the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Two could be revealed as early as 2018. This is an interesting proposition, as major titles have yet to appear on the Sony machine, with Gran Turismo still not having made its debut on the PlayStation 4, and the sixth instalment of the Grand Theft Auto series expected around 2018 as well.

    Nonetheless, it seems that both Sony and Microsoft will turn to AMD in order to provide their chipsets. Both the PS4 and Xbox One use custom AMD APUs, which are based on the Jaguar microarchitecture. The general feeling is that AMD has offered a platform which has enabled the cross-platform development of games to be carried out smoothly. And this makes it likely that the company will remain part of the manufacturing processes related to both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Two. Current estimates suggest that AMD will produce a processing unit with five-times the performance of existing consoles when the next generation comes to fruition. And central to the ethos of the production of the chipsets for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Two will be a focus on virtual reality. This naturally requires considerably more performance to be available to consoles than a non-virtual reality game running on an existing television set. This is doubly true if both consoles intend to offer 4K virtual reality. This may seem like a pipe dream at the moment, but it could be a reality in the not too distant future.

    AMD to offer backwards compatibility
    Another interesting aspect of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Two is that backward compatibility could be feasible from day one. This has been a criticism of recent consoles, with compatibility with previous generation games considered a significant weakness with both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. But with consoles moving to x86 architecture, and likely to stick with this for the next generation, this will ensure that PS4 an Xbox One games will continue to work on the new hardware. If video games fans doubt the fact that Sony is currently working on the PlayStation 5, then the fact that the Japanese corporation has already posted job listings that hint at this reality suggests otherwise. Sony has mentioned that there are exciting job opportunities available at Sony Computer Entertainment of America in an ad, and it is widely expected that this is related to the development of the PlayStation 5. In particular, it is suggested that Sony is seeking a senior game programmer in order to lead the research and development process associated with its next generation console. Although there is nothing concrete coming out of Japan on the subject as of yet, this has nonetheless led to feverish speculation that the PlayStation 5 is indeed already in development.

    Interesting! Although the source website in question reeks of click-bait the author has some strong foundation to his claim. And the websites he cited are also marginally respectable. Hehehe looks like Console equal to long lifetime is finally going to be over if this is true

    I have been reading this stuffs from early 2014s. In my opinion its all BULL. PS5 and the next XB are far into the future so no point in wasting any time fantasizing about it.

    For me i think that the next consoles are not going to be out for at least the next 5-10 years. Even the original Xbox was out for 4 years before the 360 was released.

    in pipeline, yes.
    production pipeline? no, hell no.

    they are just designing it. ps5 will not come until late early 2019, the only case in which i think i will be proven wrong is that sony gets crazy and wants to release ps5 too early to deal with their financial status.

    Both companies released the 1080p consoles pretty late. They should have done it in 2011 as being early adopters before the majority, but nope they were 2 years late. I hope the new console goes 500 USD, 400 right now is ridiculous and has no future proof value. Look at the recent gen consoles, their price has gone down significantly. Xbox One isn't worth the price unless they sell 1TB version at 350 USD, as they have proven it in real-time to be only 20% slower than the PS4 based on practical low level API use from both console
