Sony Working On A New PlayStation Console Alongside PlayStation 5
The highly anticipated next-generation gaming console from Sony might be joined by another Sony PlayStation console according to the latest report. While the Japanese gaming console giant is yet to unveil the PlayStation 5, it appears that they are also developing another new PlayStation console. If the latest claim is accurate, then gamers might see a couple of devices from Sony in the coming years.
SegmentNext recently reported that Sony filed a very interesting patent in August. The patent application was filed for a cloud gaming system last August 29 at the United States Patent Office. The application notes that methods and systems are offered for cloud gaming. One of the systems comes with a plurality of computing resources in one more data centers.
The patent application also explains that the range of computing resources was developed to provide instances of games for remote client devices from one or more data centers. Every instance for each executable game is linked with a processor, a memory, and a graphics processing unit.

In August, it was claimed that the revamped PlayStation Now service will receive a massive push with the launch of the PlayStation 5. Google is preparing to launch the Google Stadia streaming console while Microsoft is rumored to be working on its xCloud games streaming service. For now, take this information with a barrel of salt and with great skepticism.
