SGO Inside Drive 6/6: PS5, Stadia & More!
The Future of PlayStation
New console generations can be a painful transition. It is often met with reluctant purchases and a bit of doubt when it comes to new features or the removal of old ones. Rest assured, Jim Ryan’s latest interview seems to put a lot of the typical doubts at ease. There still has not been a release date, nor an official announcement of the next console’s name, but Ryan was very adamant about the console’s direction to not isolate the growing fan base. The PlayStation 4 is the highest selling console to date; Sony promises to not over look this. Whether it’s through backward compatibility or cross-generational play, the new generation will not leave behind its predecessor in terms of games and the friends you made along the way. The idea is for this new generation to have a seamless transition that only leaves the competition in the dust.
Stadia Looks to Connect Players Everywhere
Google’s new console-less way to play games promises to virtually eliminate the hardware restrictions that gamers have had to contend with for over 25 years.
