This is an unlikely scenario if the console is indeed arriving this year, because if it was coming, it would already be in manufacturing, and game creators would be developing for it. This may be very good news for new console players, but it might a deal breaker for some PlayStation 4 owners who just wants to upgrade their systems while still being able to play their favorite PlayStation 4 titles. The original report does not mention backward compatibility between PS4 and PS5.
Kotaku's extremely well-connected Jason Schreier has recently spoken to dozens of developers, both first and third-party, about the next generation of consoles, and most knew nothing about it. However, one of these insiders did note that Sony's plans are always subject to change.
"We're thrilled to announce the console release date for Death Road To Canada", said Kepa Auwae, Co-Founder of Rocketcat Games.

Cynthia Nixon Says She Wants to Legalize Weed in NY
I believe it's time for NY to follow the lead of either other states and DC, and legalize recreational marijuana . And it is: the state's medical marijuana program does not even allow the drug to be smoked.
Sources told Kotaku that Sony was looking at "every possible date". It would be nearly suicidal of Sony to steal the spotlight out of PlayStation 4 right when it's more profitable and some of the best games are just coming out. "It's all about what they think is the best sweet spot in terms of hardware". Considering the time gap between each release, it seems likely there will be no sign of a PS5 before the end of 2019.
Last week, SemiAccurate claimed that Sony had shipped a large number of PS5 development kits to game developers.
What's even more telling is the fact that many people in the industry aren't talking about the PlayStation 5 at all or are otherwise seemingly unaware of it.
Over the last couple of weeks, some wild rumors have been floating around suggesting that PlayStation 5 dev kits are already in the wild, with the console set to release either this year or next year. As it stands, the earliest release date for the PlayStation 5 at this moment seems to be sometime in the year 2020. According to a source, early devkits would find similarities with a PC, with test versions of CPU and GPU for the final product.
