"PS5 May Arrive In 2nd Half Of 2018" says Analyst Damian Thong
There is one man who correctly predicted the existence of PlayStation 4 Slim and PlayStation 4 Pro even before the rumors/reports started the hit the internet, and he is none other than Analyst Damian Thong. Guess what this guy is back in action once again and this time around predicting things about PlayStation 5, the next big this coming from Sony is gaming division.
According to Damian Thong, PlayStation 5 is coming in the second half of 2018: "PS4 Pro? Wait, what about PS5? Macquarie's Damian Thong who correctly predicted PS4 slim and Pro says PS5 may arrive in the 2nd half of 2018."
If true, this is going to be a big and an early move from Sony to counter Xbox Scorpio, which is scheduled to launch worldwide in Holiday 2017. In my opinion, releasing PS5 in the second half of 2018 is going to be a bit too early considering the fact that PlayStation 4 Pro has just arrived, give it a run of at least three years, and see how things hold against Xbox Scorpio and then unleash PS5.
