    The PS4’s Strength is why We’ll see a PS5

    The PS4 has matured and blossomed into a beastly console that continues to sell better than anything else available. That’s exactly what a winning formula looks like. Let’s be clear; the PS4 is a console sitting in many homes around the world, and it’s not by coincidence. Sony has delivered at all levels; performance, games, marketing and value. However, given we are in 2018 and the PS4 is in its 4th year since birth, we’d…

    We've just had an impressive showing at E3 from the likes of Sony. We get to digest all of the information and content sent out at the conference, and it can tell us plenty.

    Should Sony’s Next Console be Discless?

    Without speculation and rumours, we would neglect the future possibilities. Pondering, wondering, dreaming are just three of the ingredients involved when it comes to speculation. So, let’s delve down this very avenue. The very suggestion that discs would become redundant hasn’t come to fruition as yet, and whilst we might be heading in that direction there is little evidence to suggest that Sony’s next console would swerve away from having a disc drive. Alert! Give…

    How Will the PS5 Support Esports?

    The PlayStation 5 will enter a video game industry much different to the games industry that facilitated the launch of the PlayStation 4. Although competitive gaming and esports was very much a presence when the PS4 first became available, esports has grown significantly in the time since the PS4 has been on the market and has massively shaped the industry that will meet the PS5.

    Sony is Well Equipped to Begin Progressing Towards a PS5

    Just reading the headline is probably enough for some, after all, those very words signal Sony’s next major step. It goes without saying, the PlayStation 4 has turned into a major success, trumping that of Microsoft’s attempt. With Nintendo entering the market with a niche machine, I think it’s appropriate to suggest that they are the best competitor – and their machine is refreshing, with some great games. With that said, the PS4 remains the…

    How Live-Streaming Could be Key to PlayStation 5’s Success

    We are only weeks into 2018 yet there has already been a huge amount of speculation regarding what Sony’s future console plans may be. With the PlayStation 4 continuing to sell well, the likelihood of a PlayStation 5 appearing anytime soon is thought to be fairly slim. Nevertheless, industry commentators believe that the release of the next generation of Sony’s gaming technology could still happen either in 2019 or 2020, with some suggesting that an…

    All Aboard The Hype Train! Next Stop - PS5 Town

    Given the current timeline of Playstation consoles, which have been released in 1995, 2000, 2006 and 2013 respectively, it's fair to say that most loyal fans will concede that waiting another couple of years for the release of the Playstation 5 isn't entirely unreasonable. As the PS4 continues to dominate Microsoft's Xbox One in the sales arena, Sony seem to be quietly going about their business with regards to developing and planning the release of…

    The Modernization of Worms: Will Retro Titles Survive the PlayStation 5 Era?

    There is something hugely appealing about the simplicity of the Worms franchise. The first and eponymous edition, a grainy, 2D turn-based game that took the gaming world by storm when released on PlayStation in 1995 was just the start, and at last count there the series has seen over 70 million copies sold and/or downloaded for free. Indeed, the series' latest addition, Worms W.M.D, is a world away from that mid-nineties simplicity and has proven a hit with…

That being said, the console is nearly four years old now. The PlayStation 3 lasted seven years, meaning – if we stick to a similar time period – that the PlayStation 5 could be due as soon as 2020. That…

    Might The 'PS5' Be '8K Resolution' Compatible?

    Taking on the assumption that Sony will actually release a PS5, which seems increasingly likely within the future, it feels important to consider which resolution such a console might be compatible with.
