Sony Speculations Suggest Sony PlayStation 5 is Going to Hit the Market in 2018 By Argha Ghosh Posted on May 4, 2017 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Share on Tumblr We are slowly approaching the middle of the year 2017 and the news and update regarding the new gadgets which are going to be launched in the latter half of the year or even later have started flowing in quite frequently. And here is one such news which will certainly make the fans of video games go crazy. It states that the next generation gaming console from Sony is going to be launched before the end of the year 2018. PlayStation 5 from Sony might be launched much before its expected release date 2018 seems to sound a bit early. But speculations do suggest that PlayStation 5 or PS5 will come out on the market in the year 2018. Previous reports have suggested that the gaming console is going to be launched in 2019 or even 2020. However, the new update certainly makes the fans of the gaming consoles from Sony much more excited despite the fact that it has been not long that they have launched a new gaming console. The prediction has been cited by Damian Thong in one of the reports in the Wall Street Journal where the financial reports of Sony have been reported. Damian Thong is an analyst at Macquarie Capital Securities, and previously he had predicted quite a few things correctly. The unveiling of the PS4 Slim, as well as the PS4 Pro, has also been predicted correctly by Mr. Thong. It has been predicted by him that the new gaming console from Sony will be announced during the E3 2017. That’s a long time ahead of the predicted launch of the console, but it will set the stage up for an exciting competition between the gaming consoles from Sony and Microsoft which is also expected to be launch within a very short period of time. So it remains to be seen whether eventually, Sony comes out with any sort of announcement regarding the Sony PlayStation 5. If that happens, surely it will be something really special for the gamers for that will bring into prominence a gaming console which boasts of a number of new technologies which the currently available ones do not provide the gamers with.
