Sony is Reportedly Considering Retroing the Original PlayStation From 1993

To materialize the future PlayStation 5, Sony seems to continue to work with AMD and will opt for an AMD Navi graphics chipset in tandem with an AMD Zen processor. The company says it has plans to further grow their subscription service through "PlayStationVR, the cloud gaming service PlayStationNow, the video services PlayStationVue and PlayStationVideo, and the music service PlayStationMusic".

Maybe that's why we're hearing so many reports about Sony doubling their efforts to court more first-party developers. Sony apparently realized that had a unique opportunity on their hands. For the first time, an official from Sony has commented on a PlayStation Classified Edition. Which leaves Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us Part 2 to effectively pick up the pieces for the end of 2019 and beyond.

In 2017 Nintendo was able to make a lot of money by releasing new versions of their older consoles such as the SNES. God of War has already surpassed 5 million sold so it remains to be seen what kind of milestone it will achieve within its first year.

It shouldn't be disregarded though exactly how well the PS4 is still selling. To develop a PlayStation Classic, Sony must consolidate the hardware and games into the console.

"I think the natural extension of that is the PS4 Pro becomes the default PS4, and they just knock that price down to $250 when they can and they keep selling it - a tonne of those".


"If it slows in 2019, they're probably launching in 2020".

This console generation has been a busy one for Sony.

Even if Sony decides to go forward with a retro console, it could still be more than a year away from release.

Rumors about a new generation of PlayStation consoles being revealed soon have been swirling around the web for months now and the company's CEO just added fuel to the fire.
