During the week, Sony has teased the first details for its next generation console during an interview with Wired. In the interview, the lead system architect, Mark Cerny spoke about working on its next generation console, mostly likely named Playstation 5 but that hasnt been confirmed
In the interview, Cerny confirmed the next-gen PlayStation is partially based on PS4 architecture, which means that it will be backwards compatible. Cerny also revealed that it is not an all-digital device, and will accept physical discs.
Another key leap the next PlayStation will make comes through its hard drive. According to Cerny, developers let Sony know that what they want solid-state drives in the new hardware, as opposed to the slower equivalents used in current consoles. These SSDs are relatively prevalent now in laptops, and what Sony is bringing to the next PlayStation is described as being specialized for the hardware.
At this stage there is no date set for the release of this console, however we do know that Sony have a press conference booked for the E3 event later this year.
Stay tuned for more details
