As we already know that Xbox One X is coming from Microsoft, and it is set to be the world’s most powerful console, and because of this gamers are wondering if Sony has something up their sleeve as well or not. Is PlayStation 5 coming? What is the release date for PS5?
In an interview, Golem.de asked Shawn Layden, president and CEO of Sony, if PlayStation 4 Pro is a replacement for original PlayStation 4 and that if there will be any game which runs on the PS4 Pro – but no longer on a Playstation 4?
Shawn Layden replied that will never happen, he added that, The Pro is really only to offer advantages such as 4K resolutions and HMD for players who can and want to use that. Add to this a more stable image rate and larger hard disk space.
But people who have a standard PS4 have no real disadvantages. Each of our games will continue to run on the classic PS4 and possibly slightly better on the Pro.

Golem.de asked Shawn Layden, if Playstation 5 is coming and whenever that will be? Shawn replied that “Yes. It will probably be some time.” That confirms that it’s just matter of time until they make any announcement about PlayStation 5.
The question is when is PlayStation 5 coming? What is the release date for PlayStation 5? The analysts who predicted the PlayStation 4 Pro and Slim’s release date are predicting that we could see the PlayStation 5 anywhere between 2018 and 2019. according to them the console would arrive in the latter half of 2018.
While speaking to GamingBolt, another analyst Michael Pachter said that, We might need to wait a little longer than we expect. He thinks the Sony PS5 will be a half step and will be backwards compatible with the PS4. According to him we should be seeing PS5 in somewhere around 2019.
He also added,it would make more sense as it would fall in line with predictions for when the 4K TV market in the US will reach 50%. “I think Sony has probably got the next console cycle lined up already”, he says, “I think they already know what they’ve got to do.”
Aside from what we mentioned above, the Golem.de’s interview with Sony president and CEO, Shawn Layden, mostly covers Sony’s presentation on E3. Which they showed highly anticipated games such as Days Gone and upcoming Spider-Man game.
