Perhaps this is the beginning PS5, but we are already thinking about PS6 (also known as PlayStation 6).
It is unlikely that we will see another new primary console within a few years, but that doesn't mean we can't fantasize about what we would like to see on the next PlayStation, or to predict when we'll probably get our hands up. After all, we know that Sony is already thinking about the future by introducing the PS6, PS7, PS8, PS9 and PS10 titles.
So, we have collected everything we want to see on the PS6 and when we plan to get our hands on the next PlayStation.
PS6 Release Date - When do we expect it to be released?
PS6 is probably still a long way off. The PS5 was only released in November 2020, so it's unlikely that Sony plans to release a new PlayStation within a few years.
PlayStation consoles are usually released with a difference of six to seven years: The PS4 will be released in 2013, and the PS5 in 2020.
In an interview with Game Informer, Sony's executive vice president of hardware development Masayasu Ito confirmed that the life cycle of the PS5 is expected to be around six or seven years, which means we won't see the PS6 before at least 2026.
"In fact, in the past, the cycle of a new platform was from seven to ten years, but given the rapid development and development of technology, it's actually a platform cycle of six to seven years," Masayasu said.
"Thus, we cannot fully catch up with the rapid development of technology, so we think that within terms of the PS5 platform, it's a cycle of maybe six to seven years. But by making this the life cycle of the platform, we will be able to change the equipment itself and try to adapt to technological advances.
"It was an idea, and the test case for this idea was the PS4 Pro, which was released in the middle of the PS4 release cycle."
Sony seems to be following the same roadmap as the PS4, which means we'll probably see a PS5 Pro or PS5 Slim version in the middle of this lifecycle - around 2023 or 2024.
PS6: What we want to see
PS5 is a giant console. In fact, it is the largest console in modern history. But bigger does not always mean better, and the size of the PS5 does not allow those who do not have a shelf to place it, and, frankly, few of us do. We hope that with the PS6 (and maybe even the PS5 Slim Edition), Sony can learn from its mistakes by making the next-generation console smaller and more maneuverable while maintaining sufficient airflow.
The most accessible expandable internal memory
It will be possible to expand the PS5's internal storage by blowing up the sidebar and installing an SSD as soon as Sony releases a software update to activate it, but it's not that easy. The PS5 only accepts compatible NVMe solid-state drives that meet or exceed the specifications of existing drives, and they are not cheap. These types of SSDs tend to be quite expensive, which means gamers can use external storage, but unfortunately these external storage options don't use the raw power of the PS5. We expect that with the PS6, Sony will simplify the expansion of internal storage, possibly by applying a similar approach to the expandable Xbox Series X memory card.
Built-in Bluetooth sound support, so we don't need a key for official headphones
It's perplexing that a brand new gaming console has been released in 2020 that requires you to plug in a USB dongle receiver to use your own wireless headphones. Like, what is Sony? Let's talk about the aesthetic attack on our eyes and on the storage space under the TV. It only integrates the creepy stand on the PS6. Caramba.
Wireless charging for controllers/headphones - you can just put it on top when the power is off
Of course, Sony's PS5 DualSense controller charging dock works quite well and the controllers slide well over the charging pins, but we don't need any other hardware on our TV. Sony should take a leaf out of the smartphone manufacturing book and put a wireless charger on top of the PS6. This will allow you to place the controller on top of the console when you're not playing to charge, and you can even extend wireless charging technology to headphones, a multimedia remote control, and any other device.
Wireless (and without delay) connection to the TV
There are too many topics behind our media stations, and PlayStation 5 is to blame. We have power and HDMI, as well as a completely separate block of connectors for the dock to charge the controller. Add an HD camera and an extra cable for the PSVR 2 when it boots up and things get messy. With the PS6, we want only the power cord and everything else to be wireless, obviously without delays or delays.
Improving the user interface
The updated PS5 user interface definitely screams "next generation", but it also has a few bugs that we'd like to fix with the PS6. The PlayStation Store is difficult to navigate, especially when it comes to sales, trying to find friends and having a party is not as easy as with PS4, and to top it off, even
