PlayStation 5 – Tekken Producer Speculates Will Be A Cloud Service

Katsuhiro-Harada-2

In this week’s issue of Famitsu, Tekken Producer, Katsuhiro Harada, speculated that the PS5 will not be a piece of hardware, but rather a cloud service.

Harada said,

“I think in the future things will be played on the service, rather than on the hardware. The Cloud is often mentioned, and if cloud services progress, the time when only the name of the service will remain will come some day.

“The PS5 Probably Won’t Have a main console, but just the screen and controller. So what remains will be just the name of the service. It could be named just “PlayStation network”. Steam is defined a platform, but it’s not a hardware platform. It’s the name of the service.”
