Gamescom is underway and Sony hasn’t participated in the event. Microsoft however had a conference where they revealed a bunch of things including a Minecraft edition Xbox One X and a Project Scorpio edition Xbox One X. Sony on the other hand put out a teaser on its social platforms with the tagline, “getting geared up for the reveal of something new”. What this could be is anybody’s guess. Will it be a new handheld console? A successor to the Vita? Well, the success of the Nintendo Switch has shown us that the market for handheld gaming isn’t dead provided the console bring with it interesting innovation.
Could it be the PS5? Well, we doubt it considering the PS4 Pro hasn’t been out in the market for too long and Sony doesn’t want to shoot itself in the foot by launching a new console prematurely (yes Dreamcast, your example is still valid!).
Could it be a Death Stranding Limited edition console? Yes, that makes sense. If the game has been in development for nearly a year, it’s time we got to see some gameplay and maybe a release date.
Could it be a limited edition PS4 or PS4 Pro? Yes, that can be the case. With Microsoft Design Labs and various limited-edition Xbox One’s launching its possible Sony want to launch some cool customzed PS4’s.
Sony has a press conference scheduled for October 30 at Paris Games week where we think the red vail will be lifted and the suspense surrounding the teaser will end. Sony also has its own PlayStation Experience scheduled for December 9 and 10 2017 where we think we will get to see a lot of games in action.
