We probably haven’t made it to half of lifespan of the current generation of consoles, but rumours about the next generation are already rife. It seems that we have some rather questionable bits of news regarding the successor the PlayStation 4, the PlayStation 5. What changes will this iteration bring?

PlayStation VR

According to rumours from Vine Report, the PlayStation 5 will be offered in two versions, and one of them will feature a virtual reality headset. This makes a spot of sense, considering PlayStation already has a virtual reality solution in the form of PSVR. Considering VR is here to stay, it makes perfect sense for the next PlayStation to ship with VR.

The really strange part comes when the Vine Report article says “the future consoles are reportedly going to be a lot less bulky given that it will be sporting the latest powerful chipset which enables it to work without a disc drive,” which makes me fairly certain that the article author doesn’t know what they’re talking about. A chipset ‘enabling’ the console to work without a disc drive? What?

What do you think should be a feature in PlayStation 5? Let us know in the comments below.

    It sounds like the PS5 will stream games instead of using a disk.
