Most of my games are on external drives on the XB1 and no problems with performance.

Yup, I see no performance difference as well. If I recall, they say that running an external 7200RPM drive on the XBox is actually faster. I didn't do any tests though. I'll do the same for the PS4. I'm going to order a 7200 drive and an enclosure for it. I have a couple of drives laying around, but no clue if they are USB 3.0 or not.

Why buy an external HDD for the PS4 when the Playstation 5 is coming out next year?

Agreed. I thought it was funny. Sony would be crazy to release a new console next year.

Well, to be fair (and I know you were making a joke), if it works like the XBox, you can unplug it from your PS4 and plug it into your PS4 Pro and then into your PS5, if the architecture stays the same.

It's like moving your steam library to a new machine, just move the drive over.

It would be nice if the consoles moved in that direction, although who knows. Nintendo was doing that for a while, with the Gamecube --> Wii --> Wii U.

I can't tell if they're serious. The PS5 will be coming out in 2019 or 2020. They've already got big releases for the PS4 scheduled well into next year and into 2019. There's no way MS and/or Sony are going back to the 5 year console cycle. The iterative consoles are there to keep the generation going for an extra 3-5 years.

They are basically just drumming up clicks, which I guess I inadvertantly helped. A few sites reported on the PS5 rumors, but like you said it's not coming next year. Maybe 2019 depending on the market, but I think 2020 is more likely.

Remember when 2020 seemed so far off in the future? Jeez...

This isn't the right thread for it, but I remember when 2020 seemed like a year that more than a few hundred thousand humans would be alive to see.

And if Horizon Zero Dawn is anything to go by, we don't need a new console. It looks and plays great on my launch PS4. Same with Uncharted 4, and I'm certain Last of Us Chapter 2 will look and play amazing.

If anything it will be an update of PS4 architecture. We won't see a "new" console like the Switch form either Sony or MS. The current idea is more like how an iPhone works. Just release a new one with better specs

But yeah, I don't see a new one happening that soon either. Pro is just out. And Sony would be crazy to cut up their market with too many options.

I agree, I don't need one. I will only buy a new one when this one breaks.
