There’s been news regarding the kickstart of Playstation 6 manufacturing now, but there’s no clarification on whether there will be a PS5 Pro
Since its release in November 2020, the PlayStation 5 (PS5) has enjoyed tremendous success in the gaming industry. The PS5 has outsold its predecessor, the PS4, in the same period of time despite supply chain problems and manufacturing difficulties caused by the pandemic.
According to Sony, the PS5 is the company’s fastest-selling console ever, having sold more than 13.4 million units as of July 2021.
The PS5’s impressive sales figures can be attributed to its upgraded hardware, which includes a faster SSD and innovative haptic feedback in its DualSense controller, as well as its remarkable lineup of exclusive games, including “Spider-Man: Miles Morales” and “Demon’s Souls”.
There’s no surprise that Sony managed to tap into an audience who wants one for the nostalgia and modern sensibilities, so much that scalpers even saturated the market with bumped-up prices, exploiting those who want one for themselves.
A tweet from WorryWartGamer, which claimed that a hardware designer for the console had been hired and that PS5 lead architect Mark Cerny was the candidate, sparked speculation about a new PlayStation 6 (PS6).
Sony cannot afford to stop the development of the PS6 because it is not anticipated to be released until 2028. The PlayStation 5 Pro, according to YouTuber RedGamingTech, may be discontinued as a result of Sony concentrating its limited resources on establishing business alliances, developing hardware and software, and marketing the PS6 internationally.
Additionally, there have already been rumors about a modular PS5 console, which might cause Sony to drop plans for a PS5 Pro or PS5 Slim.
Producing a rumored detachable disk drive model would enable Sony to launch a PS5-like console and move on to developing a new console that will meet fans’ standards because the foundation for the PS6 is already in place.
