While the PlayStation 4 releases this November, Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada is already talking about the future.
In an interview with Famitsu, Harada declared “I think in the future, it’ll will be a contest of services instead of hardware…When there’s the PS5, it will probably be just a controller and a monitor.”
While there is no indication of this as the future of console gaming, devices like the PS Vita TV are pushing this idea forward. Time will only tell whether or not the future of PlayStation and Xbox will see the loss of a box, replaced by a service.
Who knows, maybe Roku or Apple TV will be picking up PlayStation?
The PlayStation 4 releases on November 15th for $399.
