Default The PlayStation 5 Probably Won't Be a Console, Says Tekken Producer

The PlayStation 5 Probably Won't Be a Console, Says Tekken Producer

Quote:




This fall, the PlayStation 4 will finally be released. Enjoy that physical media playing game console thingy! As one game producer says, it could be the last of its kind for PlayStation.


In a recent interview in Famitsu, Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada of Namco Bandai talked a bit about the future of the PlayStation, its network capabilities, and cloud services.


"I think in the future, it'll will be a contest of services instead of hardware," Harada said, adding that the cloud services will progress. For Harada, what he thinks will remain are the service's names.


"When there's the PS5, it will probably be just a controller and a monitor," Harada continued. "Then, the thing that will be left is the name of the service."
Continuing, Harada mentioned online services, like the PlayStation Network and Steam, of course.

Since the PlayStation 4 is coming out this fall, it's possible that the PlayStation 5 won't be out until around 2020 or slightly later. Everything Harada says sounds reasonable, but maybe we'll see devices that are closer to PS Vita TV than traditional home consoles. I would be surprised if physical game boxes were still released. Surprised, but also very happy.


Just wait until when the PlayStation 9 comes out. That's when stuff will get really interesting.
