Rumours have been circulating the web of the past few days regarding PlayStation hardware and what could be in store over the next couple of years.

One analyst has predicted that we could see PlayStation 5 (or whatever it might be called) as early as next year.

The prediction comes from Macquarie Capital Securities analyst Damian Thong, who himself has had a rather good track record when it comes to predicting Sony’s next move. He correctly predicted the launch of the PS4 Slim as well as the PS4 Pro which is why the gaming community is taking notice.

Damian’s thoughts were features in the wall street journals report on Sony’s recent financial earnings which saw the company reveal it has now shipped an outstanding 60 million PS4’s. The analyst said he expects the PS5 to be release before the end of next year which should it turn out to be correct then we could see a reveal as early as E3 this year.

We do feel that the prediction is a bit premature as the PS4 Pro is not even a year old yet so it doesn’t make sense to us for Sony to have another console refresh so soon. We’ll keep an eye on this story though to see if it gains anymore traction.

What do you think? Should Sony release another console so soon?
