It’s well known that we’re moving towards a future of streaming the way we play will drastically change over the few years, PlayStation 5 could be the last model of it’s kind.
Jim Ryan, the CEO for PlayStation had some interesting things to say in an interview with CNET. Jim Ryan wasn’t sure if a console after PlayStation 5 will exist, Ryan was asked whether the PS5 was “the last console”, and his reply to the question was “I actually don’t know. I’ve been around a while, and I sat there in 2012 and listened to all sorts of smart people tell me about mobile and that the PlayStation 4 was going to be the most terrible failure ever.”
“The logic was actually hard to fault. But we believed in that product then, we believe in this next generation product now”, Ryan added. “Who knows how it might evolve? Hybrid models between console and some sort of cloud model? Possibly that. I just don’t know. And if I did know, I wouldn’t tell you.”
Needless to say, there’s a high possibility that the PS5 will be the last to represent traditional consoles. PlayStation will probably be looking to adapt and do some changes, most likely introduce streaming and cloud software in the future, in an attempt to keep up with their competitors.
