Sony is quietly saying goodbye to the PS4 in 2023

by Ana Lopez

Almost ten years after the launch of the PlayStation 4 – which kicked off the eighth generation of consoles – Sony could finally say goodbye.

Now that we’re really embracing the gaming giant’s new generation credentials, Sony’s marketing suggests we’re ready to say goodbye to the PS4 with a major shift in focus to the PS5.

Is Sony finally ditching the PS4 to focus on the PS5?

A new trailer released on PlayStation’s YouTube channel seems to suggest that Sony is putting more resources into supporting the PS5, while quietly leaving the PS4 behind.

The trailer highlights a montage of upcoming games for both consoles in 2023, with 23 titles in total.

However, Kotaku notes that only eight of the highlighted titles have been confirmed to be supported by both generations, meaning the majority of them will be next-gen exclusives.

The level of support so far for the previous generation has been unprecedented, especially considering the PS5 released way back in 2020, but more and more developers are starting to make the switch.

While we still expect some games to appear on both platforms for a few more years, 2023 looks set to be the year the move to the PS5 is made official.

2023 is shaping up to be a huge year for gaming in general, with many highly anticipated titles delayed from last year finally seeing the light of day. PlayStation 5 owners also have a lot to look forward to as the trailer details the upcoming games.

FinalFantasy 16, spider man 2and Horizon VR: Call of the mountain are three examples of PS5 exclusive titles that Sony fans can look forward to.

Other games like Empty space, Suicide Squad, Star Wars Jedi: Survivorand Alone in the dark are next-gen exclusives that will grace the PS5.

And finally, Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Resident Evil 4and Hogwarts legacy are set for both generations, meaning PS5 owners can play the optimal version.

If you haven’t made the move to the next generation yet, maybe this is the year it’s finally worth doing. Well; me, if you can get your hands on a PS5.
