Sony clarifies new PlayStation is more than a year away


Japan based electronics and gaming entertainment company Sony has given an update about its earning announcements and the targets for the year. The Interactive Entertainment arm of the company has commented on the future of PlayStation from its gaming segment and that there is no chance of seeing a successor to the PlayStation 4 in stores any time between now and April 2020.

Takashi Mochizuki, a reporter of a leading daily Tweeted on the comments that came from a SIE spokesperson after the Sony’s investor call earlier on April 26, 2019. Sony once again reminded about its reduced profit goals for the next year but has also promised that it would invest the difference (31.1 billion yen or $278 million) between last year’s operating income and its current outlook for 2019 in to developing in its next PlayStation console.

Mark Cern in an earlier interview had noted that the console will not be coming any time this year but it is likely to be launched later in to the year than many fans would have hoped. Looking at the market it seems like it is turning in to an interesting period for the console gamers, as Nintendo is working on the upgraded Switch consoles and Microsoft has also ventured in to the world of disc-less games machines. Moreover gamers will also be able to stream game services from the likes of Google and Sony surely knows the challenges and is also taking it very seriously.
