Sony is planning to release at least seven new pieces of PlayStation hardware, according to a new report from Insider Gaming’s Tom Henderson. They include Project Leonardo, a highly customizable accessibility controller kit that PlayStation announced back in January, as well as a new PS5 with detachable disc drive, two new wireless audio devices, a Q Lite portable, and, perhaps most excitingly, a PS5 Pro that presumably features much more powerful hardware than the current version. The PS5 Pro is “100%” in development and tentatively slated for a Q4 2024 release, sources claim.
Rumored PlayStation Hardware
- New PlayStation 5 Console (September 2023)
- New Audio Hardware (End of FY23)
- Q Lite (Handheld Accessory) (Q4 2023)
- PlayStation 5 Pro (Q4 2024, tentative)
From an Insider Gaming report:
It’s been a hot topic of discussion as of late, but yes, Insider Gaming has previously revealed that Sony does have a PlayStation 5 Pro in development. Our report in March was dismissed as being inaccurate by many when it was first reported and although the PlayStation 5 Pro could be canceled at any given time, Insider Gaming can report with a 100% degree of certainty that the PlayStation 5 Pro is currently in development.
Whilst we cannot report on any more specifics at this time, we understand that the first dev kit prototypes will be going to 1st party developers within the next couple of months, with 3rd party developers receiving them by the end of the year.
