I’d like to own a PlayStation 5. I’m looking forward to owning one, but I have a strange feeling that as soon as I do, a new model will be announced. Sony has traditionally released multiple models of each console generation. I’m referring to major model changes such as the transition from the original PlayStation to the PSOne. Aside from the original PlayStation, the PS2, PS3, and PS4 all received a console refresh/redesign around three years after their initial release.
We’re approaching the three-year anniversary of the release of the current-generation PlayStation console. Because of how COVID affected everything, I now understand that the technological landscape is wacky. Even the production of console parts suffered greatly. This resulted in a console shortage, to the point where there are still many gamers who do not own a PlayStation 5. I understand they are much easier to obtain these days. But I have a sneaking suspicion that a new version of the console will be announced the moment my receipt becomes unnecessary.
I’ll see a tweet announcing a PlayStation Direct as soon as I’m no longer able to return or exchange my console. I’m not expecting a PS5 Pro, but I believe a smaller, more compact version is on the way. Not because of any inside information, but simply because of previous consoles. Furthermore, the PS5 is the same height as my desktop and would not fit in my current TV stand.
Perhaps this is my hope that they will soon announce a smaller Playstation 5.
