Naomi Matsuoka, who’s a big shot at Sony, talked about the importance of finding a sweet spot between cashing in and selling lots of consoles as the PS5 grows older. “Looking forward,” Matsuoka shared in a Bloomberg chat, “we’re thinking the PS5’s yearly sales numbers might start to wind down starting with the next financial year.” Ever since the PS5 first showed up in stores in November 2020, it has had the upper hand over its competition, the Xbox Series X|S. Sony’s not slowing down though; they’ve just put out a new look for the PS5 that comes with a disc drive you can take off.

There’s some buzz about a souped-up PS5 Pro, but Sony’s keeping any news about what’s next under wraps. That being said, some papers from Microsoft from last year are hinting that the next PlayStation, number 6, might pop up by 2028. There’s a little bit of a mix-up: while Matsuoka’s words suggest the PS5 is approaching the last stage of its time, Sony’s official word to the public says the console is hitting the final half of its lifespan. Gamers all over are on the edge of their seats for what comes next, but one thing’s for sure: the PlayStation 5 isn’t done leaving its mark on the world of video games. 🎮🌟
