We are aware that Sony and Microsoft have been both working on next-gen systems, but neither have officially revealed anything yet, and the former has been especially tight-lipped about what will presumably be the PS5.
That said, some PS fans think Sony may have just teased the PS5 for the very first time.
Last week, Sony Interactive Entertainment sent out a free holiday PS4 theme to a large number of PlayStation users.
“We wanted to thank you, the PlayStation community, for a glorious 2018,” wrote Sony at the time. “Together we’ve embarked on new journeys, battled heroic fights, and saved the world. The power of play is what brings us together.”
Look at the S in "Holidays."
Now look at the S in "PlayStation."

But what does this free PS4 theme have to do with a tease for PS5? According to some, it’s in the theme that said tease is hiding.
This was discovered by Mike Peterson on Twitter, who pointed out that the “S” in “Holidays” and the “S” in PlayStation are not the same. More specifically, while the former looks like your standard S, the latter doesn’t look like an S at all, but a 5.
Is this a tease for PS5? We don’t know. Peterson is definitely correct in his observation: that’s a 5, not an S in “PlayStation.” And what else could this be a tease, if not the PS5? Some have even pointed out this is the 5th holiday season for the PS4, but this isn’t true, it’s actually the 6th.
So, that simple explanation is out the window. And that’s really the only other explanation that has been provided. In other words, it seems like it’s actually the first tease of PS5 and a very subtle one on that.
