Early PlayStation 5 adopters may not have to worry about a more powerful version coming down the line. According to Japanese journalist Zenji Nishikawa, who overheard some talk during the Computer Entertainment Developers Conference (CEDEC) this month, Sony will launch both the regular PS5 and PS5 Pro on the same day.

Pricing remains unknown, but the Pro version will obviously be more expensive and cater to gamers who want the most powerful hardware. Microsoft is supposedly considering the same tactic for its next Xbox, codenamed Project Scarlett.

As far as the rumor patrol goes, Sony is expected to reveal PlayStation 5 between PlayStation Experience 2019 and the first half of 2020. Microsoft will then follow by fully revealing Project Scarlett, leading to both companies launching their respective next-generation console (or consoles) in fall 2020.
