The full potential of the PS5 has not yet been exploited. Sony’s Jim Ryan estimates that it will be until 2022 for the Next-Gen games to arrive in the market.
In a conversation with the Russian outlet TASS, Ryan was initially confronted with the question of when the developers would start “using the new generation of consoles to their fullest, developing games specifically for the next cycle.” It is also about games that “maybe cannot be run on the PS4?”
In response, Ryan stated the following:
History will tell you that it’s in the second or third year that the developers really hit their stride. Developers typically need a little bit of time to familiarize themselves [with the hardware]. But it’s probably 2022 that you’re going to see some wonderful things in the same way that it was 2015-2016 for the previous generation, when the generation defining-games started to be published.
So if you expected a little more from the Next-Gen games, then you just have to be patient. As it was already reported, curiously, the new console prioritizes the PS4 version of a game, which can be turned off manually.
In recent news, Sony confirms that it might be working on PlayStation’s answer to the Xbox Game Pass service model. On the other hand, the PS5 Share Factory app with 4K HDR support is now available for download.
In Europe and the rest of the world, the PS5 has been available since yesterday. However, not all interested parties came into possession of the new Sony console. It could not be ordered for months due to shortages.
And the third wave of sales that started yesterday also ended in disaster. While even the store giants like Amazon were brought to their knees, there was an immediate sell-out. According to Sony, larger deliveries of PS5 can be expected before and after Christmas.
