Does anyone see Next-Generation (PS5 & Series X) coming this year or next year because of the virus?

Would you be okay with next-generation being delayed?

For me, I have a funny odd feeling we won't be seeing any type of next-gen because I'm assuming the factories are shut down or probably not. Also now that Microsoft cancelling events like GDC, I don't see E3 happening at all. I have a feeling we will see it in 2021. Hopefully, I'm wrong and just making assumptions.

def has a chance if factories close and cause shortage of supplies.

i would be okay, am kinda broke right now and have lots of games to play.

EDIT: and yes, safety and health REALLY comes first. workers unite.

If they are delayed there’s nothing I can do about it. But I’d prefer they came out this year in limited capacity.

Health comes first. It's possible that the next-gen consoles could launch in Q1 2021.

I think the most likely outcome will be extremely limited supplies over the holiday, but honestly it would be better for humanity to just delay and let workers avoid getting sick

They may be in short supply, but they will release this year. And no I wouldn't mind, doubt I'd buy one this year anyway.

/mutters annoyingly under his breath about the thread title question being different than the poll question.

Obviously everyone should be fine with a delay. Ridiculous that people voted otherwise.

But I think severe supply constraint is far more likely.

I'm totally okay with it, people's health comes before entertainment, but I wish at least one of the two consoles would come this year.

The boxes are going to still come this year. Games, on the other hand, might be delayed if the virus stays for a while. (But if it does, we might have bigger issues than videogames)

I'd be ok for it to be delayed.

But I don't think it will.
If anything there will be a lot fewer units to buy and getting a hold of one will be a nightmare or priced stupidly.

Voted no; because I wouldn't be okay with it? That's what's fucking wrong with me, i-Lo. But it is what it is, things could turn bad, but it doesn't make me ok with it.

I would be ok if next gen consoles had to be delayed, but dont think it will. The virus thing is previsted to be controlled by the end of April. In China is pretty much controlled, its just still growing in other places.

For sure. Health comes first and launch windowe are usually anemic so a spring launch wouldnt be a big deal to me.

As for whether or not they will do it, I think it’s still too early to tell. Guessing if this is as bad as it gets they’ll just go for a soft launch with a low amount of units or stagger the launch to ease availability in NA & EU with Japan getting the short end of the stick. If it gets worse though then yeah I can see them pushing launch back to spring to avoid a weak launch lineup/availability.

I would be ok with a delay in the context of health and safety concerns, but I don't believe the consoles will actually get delayed into 2021.

It really doesn't feel like next gen is coming this year, at least at the moment.

Xbox I could see launching 2020 but It won't surprise me if PS5 if delayed.

I think the only people who wouldn’t be ok with the delay are really spoiled kids and the aforementioned companies stockholders... That puts the stockholders attitudes in perspective

If they gotta do it then do it (delay them). I bet the China close downs will definitely impact them, either that or there will be a lot of shortages.

It does seem more and more likely as the manufacturing in China seems to really have taken a hit. Even if they do launch, they will be insanely supply constrained if the virus does not slow down when the summer arrives.

I can't say I'm on edge for either of these things to come out. It's not like they have some great exclusives unveiled that I am dying to play.

I'm totally ok if a delay happens and not only for the obvious reason, the health of the workers should be priority, but also I m ok with my ps4 pro for some more months , there are enough great games that I have not played yet and there are still some awesome games releasing this year.

I can imagine launching being hard with everything going smoothly let along having this virus thing affecting it.

Actually would fit better for me if it delayed, But is ok if it delayed because the virus world wide health issues is first.

Who can disagree ?
Besides spoiled, insensitive and hypocrites who don't care about the health of people working at Foxconn and other factories of course.

But again, too soon to tell, between the cold season ending, research on the virus, efforts to contain it etc

These consoles will hit their launch dates this year. Quantities may not be at desired levels, but it will happen.

I think both consoles definitely come but wouldn’t mind a delay if it’s in the best interest of everyone

I cannot personally see there being a delay at the moment, but if there was a delay due to the virus then I'd be fine with it.

Even if I wasn't fine, it's not as if I have any sort of choice. We'd have to all just accept it and move on. Health is more important than a game console.

I don't expect it but for all I care they could come in 2023 if it needs to, health always first.
