What can the PS5 do to truly signal a new generation?
While Sony revealed strong sales numbers for the PlayStation 4 over the 2018 holiday, rumors and discussion of the next generation have already begun. But what can the next set of consoles really do to define itself as distinct from the current crop of systems?
On IGN’s weekly PlayStation show, Beyond!, host Jonathon Dornbush, along with panelists Lucy O’Brien and Brian Altano, discuss what they’d like to see from the PlayStation 5. Watch the clip above as the trio discusses what sort of leap, if not a graphical one, the PS5 could make from the PS4 to interest us, and how the system can learn both from the PS4 and the Xbox One, with the latter’s backward compatibility and Xbox Game Pass.
If you enjoyed this clip, be sure to check out the full episode from this week where IGN’s Beyond crew discusses whether we even need the PS5 just yet, and be sure to read Jonathon’s breakdown of when the PS5 could and should launch.
While there’s plenty more to look forward to coming to the PS4, including a wave of exclusives that has us pretty excited, Beyond has already discussed a bit about what dream PS5 launch games we’d like to see.
