A POWERFUL new PlayStation console could be here in less than two years.
So says a top gaming YouTuber who claims Sony is hard at work on a PS5 sequel.
The rumor mill is described as PS5 Pro.
For a long time it was assumed that Sony would eventually launch a PS5 Pro.
Now, YouTuber Paul Eccleston said on his RedGamingTech channel that the PS5 Pro is already in development, as spotted by GamesRadar.
He claimed the information came from inside sources.
The console is said to be about 2.5 times more powerful than the current PS5.
And the release date could land in late 2023 or early to mid 2024.
The creation of a “Pro” console would not be unprecedented.
Sony followed the PlayStation 4 from 2013 in 2016 with a PS4 Pro – a three-year gap.
The PS5 launched in November 2020, which could bring a PS5 Pro release in 2023 or 2024.
Xbox has taken similar steps with its Xbox Series S (less powerful than the Series X) as well as the previous generation Xbox One X.
However, gamers will be happy to hear that Sony is still working to boost the performance of its consoles.
PC players get graphical improvements from new hardware very regularly, but consoles are harder to update.
However, it’s unclear whether Sony will have its storage issues resolved in time for the PS5 Pro.
It’s still extremely difficult to get hold of a PS5 more than two years after launch.
The console was plagued by high demand and supply constraints.
And the same goes for its Xbox rival.
Whether Sony is actually working on a new PlayStation console is also unconfirmed.
Sony won’t reveal details about new products until they’re ready – which could be years away.
Until then, all rumors about a PS5 Pro should be treated with caution.
