I present to you today’s wild rumor! We don’t even know what the PS5 looks like yet but if a Japanese journalist is correct, Sony plans to launch both the PS5 and PS5 Pro late next year when their next-gen console is expected to release.
Japanese journalist Zenji Nishiwaka talked about it during his stream, which caught the attention of wccftech:
According to Japanese journalist Zenji Nishikawa, Sony is launching two different PlayStation 5 models next year, the base and the Pro model. According to the journalist, Sony has acknowledged the interest in a high-end model and wants to give players what they want right from the beginning of the generation.
Being a rumor, we have to take everything with a grain of salt until an official confirmation comes in, but there may be more than just some merit in what Zenji Nishikawa revealed, as he has proven to be extremely reliable, having talked about the Nintendo Switch Lite before the official announcement.
What do you think, Brah? Is Sony ballsy enough to pull off a move like this? Would you go Pro instead of the basic edition? How do developers feel about this possibility?
Next year is going to be one helluva’ interesting in gaming!
