Gaming is one of the best perks of living in the 21st century. Hardware is now more potent than ever and games are looking more and more realistic as the years pass. Many people have memories of spending countless nights in front of a TV screen hooked to their PlayStation while playing the latest AAA title where they made friendships that sometimes ended up lasting for a lot longer than expected.
Migration to the PlayStation 5
However, technology evolves at a rapid pace and games are becoming more and more demanding, so developers have to optimize games to the maximum in order to make use of the limited resources of a console to their full potential.
The PlayStation 4 was amazingly successful but its days are numbered as there is less than one year separating us from the launch of the PlayStation 5.
The main concern for Sony is the fact that they can’t simply leave behind a community of more than 100 million players that they have established so they have to think of a way to convince people to convert to the PS5 faster than they have ever done it in the past.
CEO Jim Ryan said: “When we look at this transition and the ambition to do things at a scale and pace that we haven’t seen, we have to look at ourselves and make certain changes.” He also said that they are already working on ways to make people switch to the PS5 fast. There is a possibility that gamers will have the option to port their PS4 games to their PS5 by paying a small fee. More details will be revealed soon, as Ryan confirmed that there is a lot more to be shared regarding this subject.
