    Playstation consists of 4 home video game consoles, as well as a media center, an online service, a lone of controllers, two handhelds and a phone as well as magazines, was created and is currently owned by Sony Interactive Entertainment since December 3, 1994.

    The latest console, Playstation 4, which was launched in 2013, became the fastest selling console in history when it sold 1 million consoles in its first 24 hours on sale. Besides, Tiago Sousa, lead renderer programmer at ID software has said that 6 teraflops of power of 4k gaming is just a waste of resource. As per him, the same computing power could be used for higher fidelity gaming in 1080P instead of wasting it to achieve 4k gaming.

    As per rumors, then Sony will most likely launch Playstation 5 (PS 5) on June 5 this year at the Electronic Entertainment Expo. This sets off rumors that the Japanese multinational conglomerate corporation will not launch PlayStation before 2020.  Earlier reports claimed that it will release next year in 2018. Sony has not made any official statements so far, but according to reports, Sony Playstation 5 will be exceptionally different and way better than its previous counterpart, Playstation 4.

    The gaming console will offer a native 4K support while also supporting Virtual Reality (VR) headset at the same time. Industry rumors suggest that the console will offer two models, each having their own different specifications. It will be powered by AMD chips. Going by rumors, Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto 6 will be one of the first games to be launched for PS 5.

    Damian Thong, Macquarie Research’s analyst has said that the PS5 will feature 10+ teraflop of Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), which means it will have 6 teraflops of GPU more than the Scorpio counterpart. Therefore, Sony is expected to launch the console not before 2019 or 2020. On the other end of the road, Microsoft will launch Xbox Project Scorpio at the end of 2017 and they have claimed that it will be the most powerful console ever built and it will be the last generation of video game consoling.

    It will offer 4K gaming and will also feature 6 teraflops of GPU and high-fidelity virtual reality. However, Macquarie Research has quite the opposite to say. According to them, Playstation 5 will be stronger than the Xbox Project Scorpio. The price of PS 5 is being roughly estimated to be around $500. As per Thong, PS will arrive in the second half of 2018. But the shortcoming of this move would be that it will automatically shorten the life cycle for Playstation 4.
