Sony’s PS4 and PS4 Pro line of consoles continues to sell well and isn’t likely be replaced this year.
A PS5 release date in 2018 doesn’t seem likely, especially when you look at how well Sony’s gaming machines are selling.
While the PS4 may have sold less near the end of 2017 than it did in 2016, The PS4 games lineup in 2018 looks pretty strong.
Fans already have the likes of Spider-Man and Days Gone being launched this year, and there could be another big release in the works.
A recent post on the official PlayStation Sweden Facebook page seem to suggest that the Last of Us 2 could be arriving in the coming months.
A translation of the video’s description suggests that the Naughty Dog game and Ghost of Tsushima will make 2018 an “incredible PlayStation year.”
This could of course be a mistake, but fans are hoping that this could be teasing another launch for 2018.
There’s a chance we might hear more during the upcoming DICE talk, featuring director Neil Druckmann.
The Crafting Narratives for Video Games, Film, and Television, talk will also feature 10 Cloverfield Lane director and writer Dan Trachtenberg and is set to place next week.
The official description teases: “Neil Druckmann, the Creative Director of award-winning games such as The Last of Us, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and the Director of the highly anticipated The Last of Us Part II and Dan Trachtenberg, Director and Writer of 10 Cloverfield Lane and the much-lauded Black Mirror episode “Playtest” about the chilling future of AR/MR, will appear on the D.I.C.E. Summit stage in a conversation about the creative process in crafting character-driven experiences for video games.
“Dan will lead a fireside chat where these two creative forces will be discussing the intersection of, and unique challenges presented by, the interactive and non-interactive mediums.”
Experts are predicting the next PlayStation could get released next year or in 2020, but not much else is known about the next-gen console.
However, one developer has teased what one of the main selling points of the PS5 will be.
Harold Vancol is the Creative Director at Grab Games, which has created the John Wick VR game and Knockout League.
And, judging by his latest comments, it looks like VR could be one of the main selling points of the PS5.
Speaking to Official PlayStation Magazine UK (via Wccftech), Vancol said he did not think the PS5 should be bundled with a PSVR 2 headset.
However, he said the two products should be seen as “essential” together.
He said: “Buying a new console is a big undertaking for a lot of people, and buying the headset that I think people want to see in the future of PlayStation can almost be like buying a new console.
“So having these purchases separated gives each thing its own time to shine. However, PlayStation 5 and PSVR should be considered essential together.”
Kingdom Come Deliverance developer Warhorse has outlined plans for the game’s next major update.
And it’s good news for players who don’t like the lockpicking system.
After receiving feedback from fans, Warhorse has promised to make improvements to lockpicking.
“We are absolutely ecstatic about the support and feedback that we have received from YOU, our fans,” reads a Warhorse post.
“We are focused, dedicated, and committed to making Kingdom Come: Deliverance a truly fantastic experience for everyone who plays the game.
“We have heard you all and lockpicking is something that we will be working on to make it better.”
The studio will also make changes to the save and quit system, while new anti-aliasing features will be added to the next patch.
