The PS6 is coming, that's a given. When and how will it surpass the PS5?

The PS6 will be Sony’s followup to the PlayStation 5, a console that, despite being well-received, has seen its launch characterised by how hard it is to get.

Hell, some gamers probably feel they may as well wait for PS6 news, considering how long they’ve already waited for a PS5.

All jokes aside, the PS6 is likely still a long way off, which isn’t to say that we don’t know anything about it.

Sony has always learned from how their previous consoles faired, meaning there are things we can logically deduce.

The first thing, before we get to the nitty-gritty of it all, is that the PS6 will not be the next console Sony launch.

Sony actually released three different iterations of the PlayStation 4: the PS4, PS4 Pro and PS4 Slim.

Reworking models and releasing them as new technology became available was a popular with players. Those who couldn't afford the PS4 at launch might buy a cheaper model later.
