Analyst Claims Next-Gen Xbox & PlayStation Will Arrive In 2020

Many are understandably curious as to what the future might hold for consoles. Could companies be looking to launch brand new consoles, or could it be like the analysts predict and that we might see incremental upgrades with every refresh? That definitely remains to be seen, but as far as one analyst is concerned, 2020 could be the year we see next-gen Xbox and PlayStation consoles.

According to a report from Gamingbolt, they managed to talk with Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter where according to his predictions, “You know, I think Microsoft could try isolated launches, but the Xbox One X pretty much process they’re not going to do that. It launched far too recently, so I don’t see a new Xbox launching in 2019, I don’t think so. And the thing is, both companies are pretty much aware of what the other guy is doing, so they’ll know if someone is working on a new console, and it’s coming. I think both the next Xbox and PS5 are 2020.”

The idea of the new consoles launching in 2020 doesn’t seem like a stretch. In fact it is in line with an earlier report which suggested that the PS5 would launch in 2020 at the earliest, if not possibly later. Given that it has only recently that Sony and Microsoft launched the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X respectively, we reckon they’ll want to give gamers some time before launching their next console.

Sony’s X-Mount Lets You Attach Your Phone To The DualShock 4 Controller

Full Article Here

There are games playable on our smartphones in which we are able to use a physical controller with. Given that there are some games that don’t play as well using touch controls, this is a welcome feature. In fact if you’re looking for a way to enjoy mobile gaming while using a controller, Sony might have something for you.

Dubbed the X-Mount, as you can see in the image above what this does is that it basically mounts your smartphone on a Sony PlayStation DualShock 4 controller. It’s not a particularly complex setup but basically if lets users see the screen of their phones while using the controller which could be more comfortable (and portable) than propping it up using something else.

While the page mentions Sony’s Xperia phones, given the design of the mount and clamp, we imagine it can probably be used with other smartphone brands and models as well. Unfortunately Sony does not mention pricing or availability, although based on the translation it seems that they are aiming for an early June release.

However given that the page is in Japanese, there is a good chance the launch could be limited to Japan but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more info.
