Rumours about the upcoming PlayStation 5 have been circulating the interwebs for a while. Older information suggested that Sony wouldn’t release the PS5 until 2020/2021. However, new information reveals that Sony may just drop a bomb on everyone by announcing the PS5 at E3 2019 and launching the console the same year. The catch is that Sony will do this if they can stock enough PS5 for launch. The 2019 launch information comes from Japanese firm Ace Economic Research Institute. The launch will only take place if enough units of monolithic ceramic capacitors (MLCC) can be acquired by Sony, the firm notes. These chips are in high demand as they are used in 5G smartphones and cars. Manufacturers of MLCC can’t keep up with the demand. If reports are to be believed, Dev kits of the PS5 have already been seeded with developers.
