Michael Pachter is an analyst who divides opinion. Though often criticized for stating the obvious , some of Pachter’s predictions do actually hold some weight. he has had a mixed bag of records and despite this he remains one of the most famous analyst associated with the industry.
Speaking with Gaming Bolt Pachter recently gave an insight into PS5 ,
He also believes that the console will come out in probably 2019 , due to the fact that 4K technology will be readily accessible by then and Sony will time it according to accessibility of 4K devices around the world.
Sony has always been one step ahead of Microsoft when it comes to software , with a backwards compatible PS5 though that could all change and they could be on par with the hardware as well. This generation of consoles mid-cycle upgrades have meant a shorter life span for consoles, and this has changed the game entirely. With the Xbox One X Microsoft has perhaps unveiled a beast of a console, but a even more powerful PS5 would make the console wars even more interesting.
