Some of us or many of us know that the PlayStation 5 is due to launch in late 2020, however, some rumors have been cropping out which also suggests that it won’t be the only next-gen console to launch in that kind of window.

Rumors of the second console was first cropped up in the year 2019 when the Japanese games journalist, Zenji Nishikawa, claimed that PlayStation 5 pro will be launching at the same time as their base-model PS5, Zenji claimed that in a video on his own YouTube channel, and while that kind of thing would not be normally be considered a rock-solid lead, Zenji has been proven correct in the past with his predictions about the PS4 Pro and his Switch Life.

These rumors are also then resurfaced in February 2020, when the NeoGaf user named FXVeteran added fuel to the fire by also claiming that Sony plans to release two more PlayStation 5 models at the same time a PS5 Pro and also a PS5. According to the poster, the PS5 will be 9 teraflops, while on the other hand, the PS5 pro will be on the ‘top of the line’ to be competing with the Xbox Series X.

Now, while a PlayStation 5 Pro is very much likely on the cards, we are not at all convinced by these rumors which also claim that it will release alongside the PS5 and some of the reasons are given below. ‘

It is Meant to be mid-cycle refresh- This might be the most obvious reason we likely won’t be seeing a PS5 Pro release alongside the PlayStation 5 is that typically hardware upgrades like this are introduced in the middle of the console generation as a way of giving the console a bit of a refresh and also offering the players a more premium option to upgrade to.

For example the PS4. The PS4 Pro also released three years after the PlayStation 4 bringing with it a larger hard drive, 4K gaming and also a price tag to match. This also gave the owners of PS4 the option to upgrade, while reducing the price of the original console and also giving the players more incentive to jump into PlayStation. Microsoft also did something similar with the Xbox One X.
