PS5 dev kits sent to third-party developers earlier this year – rumour

By Sherif Saed, Thursday, 8 March 2018 09:02 GMT

 

PlayStation 5 development kits have reportedly already been sent to some third-party studios.

 

Marcus Sellars, an industry insider who leaked several bits of big news over the past couple of weeks, such as Black Ops 4 being this year’s Call of Duty, the Nintendo Switch port of Diablo 3, and others has returned with a big one.

 

Most recently, Sellars also correctly called out the date of this week’s Nintendo Direct before it was announced.

 

Now, it’s important to note that most of his findings have yet to be officially confirmed, but the information seems accurate so far in that they were later corroborated by separate reports.

 

This week, Sellars revealed that development kits for the upcoming PlayStation 5 were sent to third-party studios earlier this year.

Continues...

 

Sellars is batting 2/4 right now with today's official announcement of CoD BO4 and a possible 3rd considering Blizzard's tweet two weeks ago and with the upcoming Nintendo Direct tonight...

 

Roll on gen 9 :D

If the PS5 is a powerful hybrid, the Switch's short success will go down the drain.

I think we're still at least 2 years away from the PS5. Sony have enough exclusives and sales to not worry about releasing a new console too early. 

 

The Xbox One X has been out for a few months now and I know MS weren't expecting it to sell by the bucket load, I haven't seen anything to suggest it's selling as well as they expected.

Maybe they will wait for the game's anniversary in May to announce it. I was just speculating that it might be shown at the Direct, that wasn't part of Sellar's info :p
