This generation barely feels like it has gotten off the ground yet (and some would argue that it actually hasn’t), but we are already starting to hear rumblings of what comes beyond these consoles. We already know that Nintendo’s next generation system, the mysterious NX, is deep in development, but it appears they are not the only company working hard on new hardware- even the leader of this generation, Sony, has apparently started R&D for a next generation system.

How do we know this? We know this because of a new career opportunity ad posted by Sony Computer Entertainment, seeking a Senior Game Programmer. Specifically, they need ‘a senior game programmer to assist [them] in developing a game used for R&D purposes related to [them] next generation gaming system.’

So, yes, here we have it. A PS5 is coming, and work on it has either already started, or is starting soon. Hpw do you feel about this?

Personally, I think this is the right thing to do. Last generation was an aberration in how long it lasted, and especially given how dated all three of these consoles already are next to the wider context of available technology, I wouldn’t mind a full hardware refresh some time soon.

      Uh all companies immediately start thinking about their next product right after launch.

    So what? Ps5 r&d started before ps4 even launched. It has been that way since the Atari 2600 and will always be that way

    • Mark

      Exactly. I believe Microsoft started R&D right after 360’s launch……nothing new. I do think however that people spread the idea that Sony’s going full cloud streaming to TVs and such, for next gen. But who knows now.

  • Arcnail

    You know when they say their next gen system, then could just be referring to the PS4 eh? Its a 6 month contract job ffs.

  • No Problem, Sony is not Nintendo…

    Ironic Comment.
