Yeah they chose some unfortunate wording, because now I'm sure the "PS5 is coming 2019" people will rise up in volume again

Well...yeah. We knew this weeks ago when they predicted they'd sell less PS4s this year than last year. The curve has peaked and now we descend.

Of course PS4 is entering the final stage of its lifecycle. What was actually said seems to suggest that PS5 will likely launch in either 2020 or 2021.

@redd214 And y'all thought $80 for Switch's with gyro people actually use and NFC that is actually used and HD Rumble that is actually used was expensive!

This is a PS4 controller with the same features no one uses in any game.

Actually it doesn't mention anything about gyro etc, but it has ANOTHER touchbar? Come on people.

Doesn't look half bad! I'd use it, if I didn't already have plenty of controllers.

Oh god, they ruined the PS4 controller!

@YummyHappyPills I'd find it hard to swallow it not having gyro, given I use my normal PS4 controller's gyro on PC all the time. They probably just think it's not worth advertising because no one supports it.

@link3710 That's a funny notice. I got super hyped about Switch Pro support on PC as I love that controller feel and more importantly actual battery life.

When I mentioned I was hype to use gyro in stuff, people did say "You could have just used your DS4 for that".

I legitimately forgot it had gyro. I have not played a SINGLE game on my PS4 that uses it, the lightbar or the touchpad.

.. Even further

Buttugly thing tho. And what the hell do people do with those backpaddles that you absolutely can't get done with the regular controller again?

Twitter, not like there's anything interesting on there

@Tsurii from what I've read they are for the face buttons so that you wouldn't have to remove your right thumb from the analog stick to use them. May seem like overkill to most but I'm sure in professional gaming where split seconds matter, it would make a difference.

@redd214 I assume there's maybe people with disabilities that find them useful too, you never know!

It is expensive though...

Knuckles-Fajita

@Octane The irony there is my disability would GREATLY appreciate it if the right analog stick was above the face buttons so I dont have to shift my entire hand or painfully angle my thumb towards it.

But for general other hand issues yeah its nice.

But er….feature set wise for $200....nah im good.

"End of its lifecycle" seems like something they would've preferred to say only to investors and not to audience members.
I still expect the PS5 won't be earlier than christmas 2020. Possibly even 2021.
It doesn't seem like it's in Sony's interest to want to rush out of a generation where they're dominant. The decline they're projecting (from 19 million consoles to 16 million consoles) is a fairly minor one.

That's what I hope anyway. If the generation were to end in 2019, I think I'd seriously start questioning the value of buying consoles nowadays. PC would just be better value. If Xbox One ended in 2019 it'd be one of the worst valued consoles in history.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

PikPi

@Dezzy Especially with things like the PS4 Pro and Xbox X sorta giving new life into the generation. Them announcing there's yet another box to buy anytime before 2020 probably wouldn't go too well, not even from a business standpoint.

If they do decide to rush out of the generation where they're raking it in hand over fist against all conventional logic, I hope their next box plays PS4 games. They don't have the architecture excuse after this, unless they decide to do something like the nightmare that was the PS3.
