Recode’s Kara Swisher has a look at what Amazon is up to for the new console and what it may mean for the digital publishing ecosystem.
We’ve been hearing a lot about the PS5 since it was announced back in March, and that excitement has been building for the console.
But with a new generation of hardware now in its hands, Amazon seems intent on giving the console a real shot at staying relevant and attracting new gamers.
“We have no plans to release this hardware in the foreseeable future,” an Amazon spokesperson told Recode in an email.
“I would be lying if I said we haven’t heard from the consumer side, and we’ve heard feedback from customers, but we haven “reached a point where we can no longer keep building the hardware in order to meet their needs.
“We can’t say that the PS4 Pro is going to win a game-by-game award.
It’s still a beast and has an awesome gaming engine.
The biggest challenge is how we balance the need for high-end graphics with the need to play at low framerates.
The Xbox One X and PS4 S are the first consoles to have both the Scorpio GPU and the 4K UHD support built in, but Amazon is likely aiming to make the Scorpios hardware even better.
We have been hearing rumors that Amazon is working on a new console that will feature a new type of HDMI port, but this hasn’t been confirmed.
We’ll have to wait and see what Amazon has in store for us in terms of new hardware.
Amazon is looking to improve the design of its PS4 console and its digital publishing business, but the new model seems more geared towards developers.”
This isn’t a new machine. “
And that means a new hardware design for the company and a new way to build content and games.
This isn’t a new machine.
It will be a new thing for the platform.”
While Amazon will likely focus on the console’s higher-end specs, the company may be able to make a similar jump on the hardware market with the new PSX model, which is expected to be released this fall.
Swisher notes that Amazon may be selling a new version of the PSX as well, which could include a new gaming console.
“So you might see a PSX with a lot of hardware upgrades, a lot more powerful CPU, more RAM, a bigger GPU, a higher-res screen,” Swimmer said.
“If you have a game that’s a high-resolution version of a game, then maybe you might get an upgraded console, but that would be on a different price point.”
