Expect the PS5 sooner than you think, says Sony

In an interview with Techradar Sony UK boss Fergal Gara has let slip some interesting information about the length of the PlayStation 4’s life-cycle.

Gara was asked whether the PS4 is in it for the long stretch, and he replied: "It’s probably a sign of the times and how much has changed in seven years, but I think the willingness and the appetite to pick up new technology fast has probably changed quite a bit."

Gara was quick to add that it’s very early days to be commenting on how long the PS4 will be around adding : "We’re going to have a much better feel for it once we’re a good few months in and we can see how the dynamics are emerging."

To muddy the waters even further, Gara finished the interview with this cryptic statement: ""What we do know is that the uptake [of the PS4] is going to be very sharp. Does that mean this is going to be a much bigger cycle? Maybe. Or it might mean that it’s just a bit more compressed into the first few years, that the latter years are a little softer."
