The rumor mill around the PlayStation 5 continues to simmer at full speed: Now job ads from Sony spark the speculation for a new console.
Sony is still very covered in PS5. Behind the scenes, however, the work on the next console seems to be taking big strides. That at least suggest current job offers of the company. According to a job advertisement , Sony is currently looking, among other things, for a campaign manager for the next generation PlayStation. This is explicitly stated by Sony in the job advertisement. This would give job prospects the complete planning for the presentation and introduction of the next console. Such planning phases usually start long before the actual product release. A first presentation in the coming year, such as the E3 2019, seems rather unlikely. Starting in 2020, on the other hand, would be realistic.
PS5: Developers wanted…
Further conclusions about the status of the development or details to the console does not allow the job posting. The situation is similar with another ad . Sony is looking for a senior software engineer, an experienced software developer. He wants to develop platforms that enable “the transfer of intelligent experiences to the next generation of PlayStation devices”. What that means exactly, remains unclear. It seems to be about the development of cloud-based network services. One thing is certain: Again, there is talk of the next generation of hardware – a potential PS5. In recent weeks, the evidence of a new Sony console increased. Gamblers is probably an exciting future into the house.
PS5: Sony confirms the existence of the console
That the PlayStation 5 comes sooner or later, is considered secure. Sony has also indicated several times that a new generation of hardware is on the plan. As concrete as on days ago, however, the company has never spoken to the console. Compared to a business magazine confirmed Sony boss Kenichiro Yoshida , according to a media reportrecently indirectly the existence of a new PlayStation. “At the time I can only say that it is necessary to have a next-generation hardware,” said the Japanese in an interview.Thus, there is no doubt that Sony is already working on a new console.
PS5: Sony boss rejects the label
However, the name for the console does not seem to be set in stone yet. Yoshida himself stated that he refuses to call the new hardware a PlayStation 5. In parallel to the statements of the Sony chief, a recent patent application heats speculation about a possible next-gen console. Under the name “Remastering by Emulation”, Sony presents a possibility for the technical realization of backward compatibility. The new technology is supposed to brighten up textures of old games in real time. Is Sony planning to implement PS4 games for the PlayStation 5? Possible! However, the original application is from 2016. This suggests that it is more of a patent for the current generation of consoles.
PS5: Note in Unreal engine
When and in what form the PlayStation 5 appears is unclear. Recently, Sony boss Tsuyoshi “John” Kodera had stated that the PS5 will be released in three years at the earliest. A recent discovery in the source code of the graphics engine Unreal Engine 4 supports the assumption that Sony is already working on the new console. It found users of an Internet forum next PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Switch a previously unknown gaming platform called “Erebus”. What’s behind it is uncertain. Gamers speculate, however, that this could be a code name for the PS5.
PS5: codenamed Erebus?
The reason: In Greek mythology, Erebus refers to the god of darkness. Anyone who has closely followed Sony’s previous hardware developments knows that the manufacturer has in recent years always given its unannounced projects names from Greek mythology. That’s how the PS4 Pro was baptized into the temporary name Neo and PlayStation VR were long traded under Project Morpheus. That could fit! However, as the source code does not allow any further conclusions about the mysterious gaming platform, you should use this information more carefully.
PS5: Developer are still unaware
Some time ago industry analyst Jason Schreier from Kotaku spoke to numerous companies in the gaming industry. He came to the conclusion that no developer knows anything specific about the PlayStation 5, not even important first-party studios such as Naughty Dog , Guerrilla Games , Insomniac Games or Sucker Punch . There is currently no information about a new Xbox. Digital Foundry already took a look at the technology a few weeks earlier.
PS5: technical highlight
In a detailed analysis, the experts talked about the possible technical conditions of the PlayStation 5 Although Sony’s Lead System Architect Mark Cerny is currently traveling and asks the developers for their needs and desires, but a release is – as already mentioned – still far away. This is mainly due to the necessary hardware, which is not yet marketable and is currently under development. These include new chips from Taiwanese manufacturer Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company(TSMC) in the 7 nanometer process. Behind the possible CPU and the graphics card from AMD are also still big question marks. Allegedly, Sony aims at up to 15 teraflops, which is currently not yet feasible. Another factor: the high costs incurred by the new manufacturing processes.
