Honda and Sony could put a PS5 inside one of its electric cars

Sony and Honda's newly-signed joint venture might make it possible for future gamers to play PS5 games literally on the go.

If helping to save the planet, tax incentives, and slashing a percentage off of your usual car maintenance costs aren't enough to convince you to buy an electric car, Sony and Honda's latest proposition might just do it for you.

We're hoping that Sony and Honda can find a way to implement this potential feature in its EVs during this console generation.

According to Sony Honda Mobility president and COO (via Financial Times), Izumi Kawanishi, integrating a PS5 into Honda cars is part of its bid to manufacture entertainment-driven vehicles.

It's worth noting that this has been done before to some extent.

Tesla, in particular, added larger horizontal screens to the Model S and X vehicles last year. More importantly, Tesla also upgraded its hardware to include an AMD RDNA 2 graphics chip. Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, compared its performance to a PS5 and promised to let gamers enjoy playing Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3 on the go.

So far, this hasn't happened yet, and we're pretty sure Musk has his hands full with Twitter at the moment. But, if it's Sony who's talking about the promise of a literal PS5 integrated into one of its future vehicles, we can assume that it will eventually happen.

Unfortunately, we'll have to wait for the PS5-on-wheels for at least three years. Sony and Honda's latest joint venture is aiming to release its first car model in North America by 2025. Even then, the PS5 integration might not happen until they've worked out the kinks on its first batch of production vehicles.

Of course, the better question is, will people actually want to spend time gaming on the road?

Electric vehicles are the future, that much is for sure. But, it'll be interesting to see if safe and fully autonomous vehicles are going to happen.

Keep in mind that safety concerns were raised last year after gamers started playing video games while driving a Tesla. We can only imagine the outrage once Sony implements this "feature" in one of its future vehicles and we see people playing "violent" games and they get into an accident.

If it's any consolation, it'll be a while before this will all happen and that's a big if. Until then, maybe Sony can work on continuing to improve the PS5 stock availability after things got a bit better earlier this year.
