Several investors have said game consoles are on the way out but Sony still thinks there is life left in that type of business. Microsoft is still building next gen consoles so maybe Sony believes it needs to keep up. The previous launch of the PS4 did fine so the next version should also do well.

Specs: AMD 1920X Threadripper, Samsung SM961 M.2, 32GB Corsair RGB Vengeance,  ASRock X399 Taichi MB, Corsair 1000D PC case

    Just cause he says next-gen hardware doesn't mean exactly without a doubt he's talking about a PS5. It could be about anything, even peripherals for the PS4. However as is typical with the game community and game journalists they will take his words out of context and instantly think he means they're working on a new console. It's best to wait it out and see what they exactly have planned instead of jumping to conclusions.

    Context is boring. We're in a post-context world in 2018.

    I'm sure they have it whiteboarded out by now... but will wait for exact hardware as long as possible.
     
    Maybe it will be called something better, like  Playstation Pentagram

    So, they confirmed the 5th gen PlayStation, and didn’t call it the PlayStation 5. Maybe the editor of this site needs to get their story together before posting.

    Yep, Journalists seem to be getting smarter by the day!
    Maybe its not a true Playstation, so they are not sure what to call it.
    Could be a Nvidia Shield type Clone, that lets you upgrade GPU's?
    That would probably be pretty cool, especially if your able to play PS games as well as PC games!

    They'll just keep appending words to Playstation 4, a la Capcom with Street Fighter. "Playstation 4 Pro Ultimate EX+ą Champion Hyper Edition".
