Sony has followed the footsteps of Xbox, and through the senior vice president of PlayStation, Eric Lempel, it was indicated that, despite the launch of the PlayStation 5, the life cycle of the PlayStation 4 has not yet ended.
Like its rival, this also puts in the same bag possible exclusivities linked to the most powerful model, and that will not happen in the short term, so PlayStation 4 users will be able to play the same games as the PlayStation 5, but of course, at a lower visual quality and all with a lower framerate, but it ensures them to play any future launch of the platform without the need to acquire the most powerful console of the company.
“PlayStation 4 is a big part of everything we do and it will continue to be a big part of everything we do,” Lempel said. “There’s a lot more to come on PlayStation 4. I think, most recently, we’re seeing some of the greatest titles this generation have released in recent weeks, but that will continue. And, again, PlayStation 5 is the next-generation product, but again, we’ve got a lot to come for people on PlayStation 4. [There’s] still a ton of life in that product.”
