Well, it is too early for any rumour to be trusted at the moment but given Thong's past predictions for the PS4 Pro and PS4 Slim, we can take this in due consideration. That's the word according to Macquarie Capital Securities analyst Damian Thong over on the Wall Street Journal, the fella who correctly predicted the PS4 Pro and PS Slim according to VG247. Surviving and soaring off the back of Microsoft ruining the 360's momentum with one of the biggest clangers in gaming history, millions flocked to Camp Sony to feel the warm embrace of PlayStation branding.

However, it should be taken into account that the PS4 has reached the average lifespan of a console, 4 years. The brand is expected to postpone such an announcement and wait for Microsoft to brief their Xbox Scorpio console during the Electronic Entertainment Expo this year. Damian Thong, in the meantime, remains certain about Sony's impending launch of the next-generation of the PlayStation, since all it did previous year was to release two mid-generations.
