PS5s may soon be added to select cars

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 virtually every other major industry and becoming a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry. To get some of the best games out there, of course, there’s a barrier to entry. Consoles are both expensive and very hard to get, despite the latest generation now starting over two years ago. Things are starting to get better, but that doesn’t change the fact that they are still very expensive and will probably last for years to come.

However, Sony is trying to make gaming a bigger part of everyone’s lives as both Sony and Honda are considering putting PlayStation 5 units in new cars. Sony is looking to enter the automotive industry courtesy of Honda and is open to incorporating some of its best products into its electric vehicles. In a interview with the Financieele Dagblad (through Jalopnik), Izumi Kawanishi, president and COO of Sony Honda Mobility, noted that it is possible that the PS5 could be integrated into the upcoming electric vehicle lineup that is expected to launch in 2025. He even cited Tesla as a direct competitor to his ambitions for a car that can also entertain its passengers, whether parked or while some sort of autonomous system takes over.

Anyway, it’s not a concrete plan and it seems more like Sony is considering it as a possibility. At the moment it is also unclear how much this would cost. You have to imagine that a car that can also play the latest and greatest titles will not come cheap. With the cars still a few years away from launch, one has to hope that the PS5 shortage will be resolved or in better condition so that Sony can add the console to cars.
