I guess I'm gonna have to claim PS11.

I feel its a smart move to name next consoles just by number. There's no confusion of it and its common in tech these days (ie. phones)

Iphone, Iphone 3G, Iphone 4, Iphone 5, Iphone 6, Iphone 7, Iphone 8, Iphone X, Iphone 11. I feel like Sony's the only company that know's how to count to 10 properly.

Releasing in 2020. Not surprising to hear this. I will be a senior citizen when the PS7 drops. I hope I'm still alive for PS10. :-D

I can imagine people playing upscaled PS1 games on the PS10 lol Gotta love that B/C philosophy.

Wasn't PS4 supposed to be the last PlayStation? Or at least the last traditional home console? I think Sony said something like that...

SanAndreasX (on 30 October 2019)

I have everybody here beat. I want a PlayStation 12!

Well, it goes to show that they're in it for the long haul.

Jaicee (on 29 October 2019)

So many imaginative console titles planned! ;-) In all seriousness, I actually do kind of like the simplicity with which Sony devises the titles of their systems: 2, 3, 4, 5, ...10 apparently. It reflects their comparative lack of superficiality, I think. Well anyway, this should reassure people that they're not planning on exiting the console biz any time soon.

Azzanation (on 29 October 2019)

I wonder if they are doing this due to website reasoning.. i mean trademarking names cost money especally to renew them every so often. After all we all saw that Fallout First webpage scenario.
