Sony Calls PS5 The ‘World’s Fastest Console’ In Job Ad

Sony Calls PS5 The ‘World’s Fastest Console’ In Job Ad

Though it’s not exactly a formal declaration, a recent job listing for a Senior Cloud Engineering Manager at Sony Interactive Entertainment has used an interesting phrase in its description.

While, disappointingly, it turns out the job has nothing to do with evaporation and precipitation management, it does involve working on ‘the upcoming world’s fastest console (PS5) in 2020′.

Despite the low-key nature of something like a job ad, that seems like a pretty big call from Sony. Especially when neither Sony nor Microsoft have revealed the capabilities of their new machines in full as of yet.

Until Sony officially come out and spill the tea, it’s all speculation for now, but speculation is fun!

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
