Sony says PlayStation 4 successor is coming, but doesn't call it PS5 yet

From CNET: Sony's president reportedly has confirmed that the company is working on the next PlayStation, but stopped short of calling it "PlayStation 5."

"At this point, what I can say is it's necessary to have a next-generation hardware," Kenichiro Yoshida told the Financial Times on Monday.

He didn't give a sense of the form the next PlayStation might take, but FT sources suggested that it wouldn't be a major departure from the PS4 and that its fundamental architecture would be pretty similar.

Sony didn't immediately respond to a request for further comment.

The report suggests Sony isn't quite ready to jump from consoles to cloud-based gaming, even as direct competitors such as Microsoft and potential ones like Google reveal game streaming services.
