The PS4 Pro has barely been out for six months, so it’s hard to imagine another new game console from Sony in the near future. However, if the release of the PS4 Pro itself, along with the upcoming Xbox Project Scorpio, has shown us anything, it’s that Sony and Microsoft are no longer sticking to a 5 to 7 year lifespan for their systems. With this in mind, it should come as little surprise that there’s a new report on the next PlayStation launching as early as 2018.
This news comes from the Wall Street Journal, which refers to a prediction from Damian Thong, an analyst with Macquarie Capital Securities. Thong believes that Sony is planning to release a “next-generation PlayStation” by the end of 2018.
