Playstation 5: Mark Cerny would be back to maneuver for Sony’s next console

    Playstation 5 Mark Cerny The lead architect responsible for the Playstation 4 and PS Vita would return to the business of the Playstation 5. This is in any case what Eurogamer, who, through the pen of Richard Leadbetter, wonders about the period which the Japanese manufacturer will have sufficient technologies to trigger the launch of a new generation of consoles.

    While the PS4 is about to celebrate its five years of existence, its replacement occupies the minds of the small world of tech ‘for a week now. The rumors surrounding the release of the Playstation 5, which emerged initially with the analyst Michel Pachter, then with the site SemiAccurate, have taken such a magnitude, they forced the journalists of Kotaku to “press” their sources to get some answers. According to all this beautiful world, the next console Sony would not see the day, at best before the end of 2019, but more likely before 2020.

    Since you have to beat the iron while it’s hot, Eurogamer has looked through its Digital Foundry topic, on the potential architecture of the PS5, to determine what would be the best time to launch a new generation of console.

    For starters, a well-known figure in the industry would be in charge of the project. “We know that Mark Cerny has once again resumed contact with developers to discuss their needs for the next generation Playstation,” says journalist Richard Leadbetter.

    “Known” because the 53-year-old American is the lead architect of the PS4 and PS Vita, besides being the creator of the Knack license, and putting his hands in the grease of many other sagas like the Crash Bandicoot, Ratchet & Clank or the recent The Last Guardian. His involvement in the PS5 project is not surprising since his work on the PS4 has allowed Sony to impose that the iconic console of the eighth generation, besides being the best-selling, far ahead of the Xbox One.

    The search for a real generational gap
    But more than the headliner in charge of the project, Digital Foundry presents what it thinks are the future components of a Playstation 5. Thus, where a PS4 Pro embeds a TSMC FinFET chip engraved in 16 nm, the PS5 could integrate the recent FinFET chip in 7nm of the Taiwanese manufacturer. Indeed, smartphone manufacturers are the first to turn to these new chips, starting with Huawei, and as Richard Leadbetter recalls, it is common to see the consoles follow the trend in the year that follows. This brings us back to 2019 when Sony could consider acquiring the chips and thus offer a real generational gap in terms of power.
