"There is information about the PlayStation 5 floating around at both first- and third-party companies, but it's far more limited than it would be if the console's release was imminent". We chose to abstain from talking about it at the time because a PS5 launch in 2018 sounded laughable, particularly given that the PS4 Pro has only been out for around 18 months. Of those, two people said they were directly familiar with plans for Sony's new console. At some point, Sony's probably looked at every possible date. We hear from folks all the time who want to play those games again. That's according to a report today from Kotaku, which cites sources saying the PlayStation 5-or whatever Sony decides to call it-might not release until 2020.

"Super early devkits are often PCs with the CPU and GPU", said one of Schreier's sources, who said that while early PlayStation 5 development kits may be in the wild, it does not necessarily mean that the console is launching soon.

BLAME GAME: Russia says Israel was behind Syria airstrike
SANA first said the missile strike on the Tayfur base was a "suspected U.S. attack", but later withdrew all reference to America. The Israeli planes were met with a barrage of missiles fired by Syria, one of which hit an F-16 jet that had a crew of two.

The report comes in the wake of recently surfaced rumors that claimed Sony might release the PS5 this year.

Last week, we posted a report from SemiAccurate which focused on the upcoming PlayStation 5 hardware; the rumor also suggested that several development kits had gone out and as such, the console's launch date could be closer than expected. As it stands, the earliest release date for the PlayStation 5 at this moment seems to be sometime in the year 2020.

Motive behind van attack in Germany still a mystery
Muenster police president Hajo Kuhlisch said the man had four apartments and several cars, all of which were searched by police. A witness told German newspaper Bild: "I heard a loud, thumping blow, and suddenly people were yelling "Oh my God".

Those developers that have formed the tier 1 of the circle and even Sony's own studios have the impression that a 2019 release is out of the question, unless Sony is making some drastic roster changes. Since we are discussing the PlayStation, let's have a quick glance at pricing details of the now available version of PlayStation which is the PS 4 pro.

To recall, Sony's PlayStation is one of the best gaming consoles in the global market right now and it has fierce competition with Microsoft's Xbox and the Nintendo Switch.

Volkswagen boss could be replaced in restructuring
But he also faced skepticism about whether he was a credible change agent since he started working for Volkswagen in 1978. Volkswagen is controlled by the Piech and Porsche families, which have 52 percent of voting rights.

If Sony has any hardware announcements to make or to tease, that could happen during E3 2018 in June.
