Executive vice president Masayasu Ito said the device may only exist in the cloud without the physical processing system. “It could be a physical console, or it could be in the cloud,” he said.
“But even if the form might change, PS5 Games will be born,” Ito added. The Sony PlayStation 5 may still exist as a physical device that serves as a supplement to the console that receives video and sound from the server.
AMD CFO Devinder Kumar said that both the PS5 and the next generation of Xbox consoles may come sooner than expected. Sony has yet to comment on the release date of the PlayStation 5.
