There’s still no news when the PlayStation 5 will come out. However, we do know that it will not be released in the first quarter of 2020, likely hitting the market sometime in the fall next year.

Sony analyst Hideki Yasuda has similar sentiments as he recently predicted that the PlayStation 5 would be available in November 2020, Winfuture reported. It’s speculated that the next-gen console will provide Sony with a massive sales performance given the specs that have been outfitted within the device.

PlayStation 5 lead architect Mark Cerny revealed these details last month, which got fans roaring in excitement. Complete with a solid-state drive, 3D audio, ray tracing technology, an eight-core CPU on AMD’s third-gen Ryzen series, backward compatibility, and 8k resolution support – this next-gen console is set to take the gaming world by storm.

It’s for this reason that Yasuda is predicting that the PlayStation 5 will sell around five million consoles in its first year while tripling that figure in its second year. Regarding its price, the Sony analyst touts that the next-gen console will be priced at $499, mirroring other predictions.

Although the PlayStation 5 is rocking all these enhancements, Sony isn’t expected to overprice the console since it already learned its lesson with the PlayStation 3. That incident was quite the misstep for the company as it heavily contributed to them losing the battle against the Xbox 360. And speaking of Xbox, it’s expected that Microsoft will once again be bumping heads against Sony, with the Xbox 2 their champion for this upcoming match.

Regarding the overall reception of the PlayStation 5, the gaming community has been buzzing with excitement ever since Cerny’s reveal in April. The SSD and ray tracing technology, in particular, are still being heavily discussed as it will herald a new era for console gaming in the years to come. Hopefully, the development of PlayStation 5 goes swimmingly as literally millions of people are dying to get their hands on this incredible device.
