While fans wait on the official PS5 release date announcement, big news has been revealed about one of its competitors.

It has now been revealed that the Nintendo Switch outsold the PS4 in a key market in 2018.

“Nintendo Switch generated the highest December month hardware dollar sales for a single platform since the Nintendo Wii in December 2009, and achieved the highest December unit sales for a single platform since December 2010,” the NPD Group’s Mat Piscatella confirmed this week.

It was also confirmed that the Switch became the best-selling console in the US in 2018, smashing Sony’s PS4.

“Nintendo Switch ends 2018 as the year’s best-selling hardware platform in both units and dollars,” Piscatella added.

“Annual unit and dollar sales of Nintendo Switch are the highest annual total for any hardware platform since the PlayStation 4 in 2015.”

But that doesn’t mean that Sony PlayStation hasn’t had their own good news to celebrate.

A new demo recently shared by a Studio working closely with the tech giant may have given us a peek at what is being worked on for the PS5 release.

Gran Turismo Sport was recently used as a piece for a very impressive Sony showcase at CES.

An 8K display, 98-inch LCD television, called the Z9G was videoed running GT Sport in impressive visual form.

Using tech wizardry involving upscaling, it certainly shows the PS4 game in a great light.

However, while this demo looks impressive, it’s almost certain that the PlayStation 5 will not offer 8K support.

Without the real consumer need, it seems unlikely that Sony could package such a device for the mass market.

What it does show is a company working on new techniques to make their games look great.

The series creator Kazunori Yamauchi recently talked up what could be coming next and also offered some interesting insight.

Yamauchi reportedly told Finder.com: “It takes six months to create a single car.

“It’s over-specced for PS4 Pro. So we are building for future versions of the console rather than the one we see today. I think it would be no problem to run it at 8K even.”

It’s still unclear when we will learn more about the PS5 and when it will be released in the UK and United States.

Piscatella recently shared a new prediction on when we might hear more about the PlayStation 5 and it’s good news for gamers.

According to the NPD analyst, PS5 will be announced later this year, along with Microsoft’s next console. This will be followed by both consoles hitting shelves in 2020.

Sony themselves have confirmed that they are set to host their own tech shows this year, although they haven’t revealed in what form they will come.

As there will be no PlayStation presence at E3 in 2019, it would certainly seem appropriate for the tech company to show off their next gaming machine at their own event.

Fans have also spotted that Sony PlayStation has started advertising positions for ambitious sounding game projects.

Multiple positions need filling, and from the sound of some of the job listings, a new third-person adventure could be in the works.

Described as “the next chapter of cinematic storytelling,” it would make sense that something like this would be being made for the next-gen.

A Lead Character Artist is needed at Sony Interactive Entertainment PlayStation, with numerous references made to joining the teams behind hits like Uncharted and The Last of Us.

So if Sony is looking to make a generational jump within the next few years, it sounds like they will have some special projects to show off.

And with the latest predictions being made by analysts, it sounds like PS5 release new isn’t that far away.
