Updated 4/18: We’ve updated our comprehensive guide to everything confirmed and rumored about the PS5 so far with additional details about the potential PS5 price point, the PS5 specs and what 8K gaming will actually need to work, and much more.
Read on for all the details, analysis, and more, and stay tuned for more updates on the PS5 as they develop.
With the beginning of every game console generation comes an implicit question: when will we see the next generation of consoles? With this in mind, we at IGN want to compile all the official information and rumors we know about the next PlayStation, which we’re naturally calling the PS5.
Especially in light of Wired’s interview with Mark Cerny about the next-gen PlayStation console. Read on for the information we know to be true about the PS4 successor, as well as the many rumors floating around it, and be sure to come back for updates as more PS5 updates arrive. (And note, while Sony hasn’t officially called the next-gen console by name and confirmed a title, we’ll be going by PlayStation 5 or PS5 for simplicity’s sake.)
