Next year we'll be witnessing the end of the fifth year of the current generation. Unlike Microsoft, Sony has released their "enhanced" console last year and it feels like they are now ready to jump into a next generation as they have nothing new to bring with the current PS4 hardware.

To be honest I could and would play my PS4 for a pretty long time. As someone who owns a pair of decent ~40" televisions that top out at 720p I'm not in a huge rush for consoles that are absolutely focused on the second generation of HD technologies. I'm not in a position to budget for a TV and I'm not interested in owning a console that I'm not getting what its designers intended me to get out of it; same reason I haven't bought a PS Pro and have no interest in doing so.

I don't think so either, it's too soon...

I don't want to buy a 4k TV, with PS4 pro specifically I woul love to have 1080p HDR one, but there are only a few aviable. I read Sony is bringing some in the future (LINK), which would be ideal. I am pro-framerate and the color depth improvement with more detail (in games that support a choice for that) in HD would be great.

Honestly, I'm not expecting an announcement until 2020. It would be real shitty for them to announce a new console so soon after launching their revised hardware because I just bought a Pro

I read this as Persona 5 not Playstation 5 so my vote was wrong. 2 years out minimum. It won't be so soon.

No chance.

Console generations don't last 5 years anymore. On top of that, there is no reason to bring out a new PlayStation or Xbox because the investment in this generation is a lot higher and sales continue to rack up. You don't break your own sales unless you have something you can sell to your entire install base reliably, which a new console architecture does not. A PS4 Pro update though? I could see it.
