PlayStation 4 Still Has “A Lot More To Come,” Says Sony
Although the release of the PlayStation 5 is just over the horizon, the PlayStation 4 has proven that it still has plenty of life left to live, with Ghost of Tsushima’s recent accolades providing testament to that fact. The folks over at Sony seem to be in agreement, with the PlayStation company recently confirming that the PlayStation 4 will continue to be supported long after the release of the next-gen console.
Worldwide head of PlayStation Marketing Eric Lempel said as much in a Summer Games Festival discussion with Geoff Keighley, with the former confirming that the PlayStation 4 will still hold a place of high importance following the release of the PS5. “We believe that all of these things combined, as well as all the other great PS5 features we’ve spoken about, really lead to a next-generation experience,” Lempel said. “And in many cases, we can’t take everybody with us from previous consoles into that experience. You need new hardware, you need new devices to experience what these developers want you to experience.”
PlayStation 4 is a big part of everything we do, and will continue to be a big part of everything we do. There’s a lot more to come from PlayStation 4. I think we’re seeing some of the greatest titles of this generation release in recent weeks, and that will continue. PlayStation 5 is the next-generation product, but we’ve got a lot to come for people on PlayStation 4. There’s still a ton of life in that product.”
If this year’s first-party releases are any indication, the PS4 will undoubtedly be alive and kicking for at least the next couple of years. All in all, the console will have had quite the impressive run. Sony’s PlayStation 5 is slated to launch in Holiday 2020.
