We believe that the new PlayStation 5 will launch in early 2010 and we have seen speculations on multiple sites with suggested specifications. It will use the new AMD Jaguar CPU and have two standard hard drives in place of the Dual Slots. There are also rumoured features such as USB 2.0 and HDMI out ports. The PlayStation 5 will be equipped with the new Eye camera, which will allow for the first time on-line video gaming.
The rumor is that a launch window of late next year or early 2009 has been discussed and there will be a new display format known as LCD. The rumors also suggest that a first series of two games will be launched before the end of next year. This would be the first game console to offer the new image loading technology. Following this, it is believed that there will be an announcement of several new features that will be supported by the PlayStation 5.
A source close to Sony has confirmed to Developing that there will be a PlayStation 5 during the second half of 2009. He went on to state that the rumor which suggests the release date of the next console launch is not confirmed and is only an unconfirmed rumour. This statement contradicts statements made by Sony executives during a meeting with financial analysts. These analysts had suggested that a release in late 2010 was possible.
There is no confirmation regarding when the release of the PS5 will take place, but the rumour that there will be at least five games launching during the 2020 timeframe seems to be well confirmed. It has also been suggested that there will be another two games available for the console in the second half of the 2020 timeframe. These games will then replace the main numbered launch titles. We have known that there will be at least two main titles for the PlayStation 5, but this does not mean that there will be no other downloadable games available for the system.
It is believed that the first wave of five games will launch in late next year. The rumour is that these games will support the Move controller, which will be an upgrade for the current PlayStation Move controls. It is also believed that the first controller to be released will be the redesigned PlayStation Move controller. It is not known when the other controllers will be available for purchase and how many games there will actually be.
