There has been a lot of focus on game streaming services which would enable players to stream console-level titles on even their mobile devices since all of the heavy lifting would be done in the cloud. Google and Microsoft are both working on such services. Sony feels that it’s necessary to follow up the PlayStation 4 Pro with new hardware and it has now confirmed a few details about the PlayStation 5.
Sony company president Kenichiro Yoshida has said that it’s important to have “next-generation hardware” after the PlayStation 4 Pro, which basically means there’s going to be a PlayStation 5. System architect Mark Cerny confirmed to Wired that the new console is going to have a third-generation AMD Ryzen CPU under the hood with eight cores built on the company’s 7nm Zen 2 microarchitecture.
