What Is PS6 Release Date? Everything you need to know

Although the most current PlayStation will be released in 2020, there is never a bad time to speculate about what will come next. Despite the fact that it is still several years away, the PS6 will hopefully allow you to more easily expand the internal storage, will be slimmer than the PS5, will not have a disc drive, and (if we are allowed to dream) will include enhancements such as a wireless charging pad and modular upgrade capabilities.

When Will the PS6 Be Released?

For years, there has been speculation that the typical video gaming console may be phased out. Is it possible that Sony will shrink to a flash drive-like device that connects into your television, similar to Stadia? Possibly. For the time being, let us presume that the PS6 is really under development.

Sony has produced a new PlayStation console every few years since the PlayStation 2 was introduced. Since the PlayStation 3, Sony has released a new system late in the year, and we anticipate the PS6 to be no different.

One indication that we will see this system is the fact that Sony has already obtained the trademark for generations of the device up to and including the PlayStation 10. Of course, this does not prove anything, but it does imply the possibility of a future in some form.

One further indicator is the association between when Sony starts designing a new PlayStation and when the system is actually released. Obviously, this is not evidence, but it is worth considering:

  • The PlayStation 4’s development began in 2008, and the console was launched five years later.
  • The PlayStation 5’s development began in 2015, and the console was launched five years later.
  • Given a job description for a new console in 2021 that signals the creation of a new system, we may anticipate that the PS6 will be released in the early 2026 timeframe.

In the meantime, if Sony follows the PS4’s release schedule, we’ll see a PS5 Pro or Slim before the PS6, maybe around 2023.

PS6 Price Rumors

The price of the most recent consoles has ranged between $400 and $500. It’s impossible to predict what type of hardware, new features, or upgrades the next-generation PlayStation will have, or how much their inclusion will affect its pricing in either direction.

For the time being, consider that it may cost up to $600.

Pre-Order Information

Pre-orders for the PlayStation 4 will begin shortly after Sony makes its formal announcement of the system. When the time comes, we’ll let you know what you may anticipate from us.

PS6 Features

There are no specifics at this point other than hopeful expectations and desires. We can, however, make educated guesses about certain aspects of a gaming console’s functionality since the console’s features vary with each new iteration. Just remember not to take everything too seriously for the time being.

Built-in wireless:

Wireless connectivity is already available on modern PlayStations, and wireless charging would be fantastic as well, without a doubt. In this case, though, we’re talking about something a little more realistic: a charging station located at the top of the console, or maybe accessible via an arm slideout. Place your phone, headphones, game controllers, or anything else that supports wireless charging on it. Even while it seems strange at first glance, taking use of the PS6’s always-plugged-in position to power your daily items (as well as the PS6 controller) might be quite beneficial. If you included the wireless adaptor for the headset in the console, you’d be able to get rid of both the DualSense charging station and the wireless USB dongle altogether.

Storage enhancements:

If the internal hard drive on your PS5 isn’t big enough for your requirements, it is feasible, although not simple, to increase the amount of storage available. We’re hopeful that Sony will make the internals of the PS6 more accessible so that replacing out the hard drive for something more important, such as a plug-and-play model, will be less complicated. Yes, you could use an external drive, but you won’t get anything near the read speeds that you’re accustomed to getting from the inbuilt NVMe SSD on your computer. If there isn’t a new means to increase the disc, a larger SSD would be sufficient for the vast majority of individuals.

VR integration:

This is the direction in which gaming is heading. At the moment, we must purchase separate gadgets in order to connect them to our current computers and consoles in order to profit from virtual reality games. Perhaps the PS6 will be the system in which Sony will combine motion controllers and headphones in the same package as the console. You never know what could happen!

Updated user interface

It’s not uncommon to see a refreshed user interface with a new version of any tech, especially when dealing with a console that has a cycle of half a decade. The PlayStation Store will get an upgrade, which should provide improved navigational options.

Smaller design

 The PS5 is tall. Depending on where you have it sitting in the room, you and anyone who glances over it is fully aware it’s there. And maybe you like that, but if not, a smaller console is in store. Hopefully, the PS6 downsizes a bit—and it probably will. We don’t expect an even bigger one—so that it will simply fit with your other items better.

Modular upgrades:

If the PlayStation is broken down into smaller pieces, each component might be switched with a newer one if an update was desired or required. Much like a conventional PC, you could add to your console over time as hardware improved, rather than having to replace everything every few years as it would with a standard PC. Is this something that will happen with the PS6? We can only hope for the best. However, there is absolutely no reason to assume that we will see it any time soon, but we can always dream. Right?

Digital-only console

Akin to phones without a charging port or headphone jack, disc-less consoles aren’t for everyone, but we might be moving in that direction. If you like to collect physical games and movies, you wouldn’t be happy with a PS6 that lacks disc support, but with faster internet speeds and an apparent move toward everything streaming, it would make sense to, at least one day, remove the disc drive altogether.

PS6 Specs and Hardware

In addition to the characteristics stated above, the PlayStation 6 will undoubtedly improve in other areas as well. However, since the PlayStation 6 will not be released for many years, it is difficult to predict what sort of hardware will be available at that time.

The PlayStation 4, on the other hand, should have a quicker, more powerful CPU and more responsive controls in general than its predecessor.

According to DZ Migo, one take on the console’s design may be seen in a fully made-up, just-for-fun concept film provided by the company. Like the creator’s earlier far-out conceptions, it depicts the PS6 as rough and gloomy, with components apparently borrowed from various iterations of the Xbox. This is in sharp contrast to the PS5, which is bright and colourful. Here’s another PS6 render that’s completely different from the last one.

Sony might, on the other hand, take a completely different approach and choose for a simple design that draws inspiration from past consoles and other sources. At least, that’s the gist of this Yanko Design PS6 concept, which is as follows:

We’ll know more about the console’s design, games, backward compatibility, controller and headset, and more hardware details as we get closer to launch.
