Sony Wants People to Buy The New PlayStation Faster Than Ever Before

While the PS2 still holds the honor of being Sony’s best selling console ever, the PS4 is no slouch in the sales numbers. In the past, when a new console comes out, the transition is gradual, but this time Sony has other plans.

PlayStation boss Jim Ryan has gone on the record to tell people that the goal is a faster transition to the new PlayStation when it releases. How will they manage this? Let’s find out!

Sony Pushing Gamers to Jump on The PS5 Quickly

Speaking to, Jim Ryan expanded upon Sony’s plans to get PS5s into households faster than prior PlayStations (hint, it’s all about branding):

“These are gamers who are networked and sticky and engaged and passionate about PlayStation to an extent that we’ve not see in previous generations. As we move towards the next-generation in 2020, one of our tasks, probably our main task, is to take that community and transition it from the PlayStation 4 to the PlayStation 5, and at a scale an pace we’ve never delivered on before.”

That all seems well and good, but did anybody ask the PS4 how it feels about this aggresive strategy?

Didn’t think so. Jim Ryan didn’t expand on how Sony plans to do this, but my thinking is that it will involve cross-platform titles that come out on both systems. The confirmation that PS4 games are backwards compatible will also help ease things along.

Ultimately, the price and the launch lineup will be the deciding factors. As a hardcore PlayStation gamer, I’ll be there on day one, whatever it takes. Others may require more convincing, however.

How about you? Will you jump on the PS5 bandwagon as soon as possible? What could Sony do to make you hasten your transition to the new PlayStation?

I, for one will not be one of those who will by it in the first year. One, you know the price will be high. Two, when a new console comes out, it always have issues with them in their first year. It is always better to wait for all the issues to be worked out. As far as features I would like to see in the PS5, the ability to be able download video clips of movies unlike the PS4.
