The PlayStation 5 may be added to some cars in the near future. Gaming is now everywhere thanks to phones, portable gaming devices like Steam Deck, cloud streaming, and of course, consoles. It is surpassing almost every other major industry and becoming a force to be reckoned with in the entire entertainment industry. Of course, to get some of the best games, there is a barrier to entry. Consoles are expensive and very hard to come by, even though the newest generation started over two years ago. Things are starting to look up, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that they are still very expensive and probably will be for years to come.
However, Sony is trying to make gaming a bigger part of everyone’s life, as both he and Honda are considering putting PlayStation 5 units in new cars. Sony is looking to enter the auto industry courtesy of Honda and is open to including some of its best products in its electric vehicles. in a interview with Financial Times (via jalopnik), president and COO of Sony Honda Mobility, Izumi Kawanishi, noted that it is possible that the PS5 could be integrated into its upcoming line of electric vehicles, which is expected to launch in 2025. He even named Tesla as a direct competitor of his ambitions for a car that can also entertain its passengers, whether parked or while some kind of autonomous system takes over.
Either way, it’s not a concrete plan and it seems to be more that Sony is considering it as a possibility. As of now, it’s also unclear how much this would cost. One has to imagine a car that can also play the latest and greatest titles won’t come cheap. With the cars still a few years away from launch, one has to hope that the PS5 shortage is either resolved or in a better state to allow Sony to be able to add the console to the cars.
