Any details on the PS5? Sony looking for anything?
The PS4 and the Xbox One are slowly ending their lifecycles, and both Sony and Microsoft have confirmed that they are starting work on their next systems. But outside of that, we don’t have much details. But, Sony has put out some interesting job listings that tease what their PS5 might be able to do.
One listing was for a Senior Network Operations Engineer, and it said this:
“As a primary member of the Network Engineering team you will be responsible for the development, support and mid to long term considerations of an advanced global IP network that adheres to the highest standards to provide robust, low latency game streaming services to PlayStation Now customers around the globe. You will help contribute to an automation first operations team (DevOps) to increase our efficiencies and ability to scale rapidly as we build the next generation PlayStation backbone.”
Another was a Staff Software Engineer, and said this:
“This is a high-visibility technical leadership position with Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) platform engineering organization to establish a highly available, fault-tolerant, globally distributed data platform and services,” reads the listing. “The next generation data platform serves the global, fast growing PlayStation Network customer base. This key role will lead the technology transformation of the network data platform including existing and new services supporting the dramatic customer growth on the platform.”
So it seems that Sony is working to make sure that their various features introduced on the PS4 will be even better on the PS4. But only time will tell what other details are revealed.
