We already know that Sony Interactive Entertainment is working on another console installment, which will presumably be called the PS5. However, details around what it's cooking up, are currently scarce and mostly of the rumor mold.

However, a slew of new job listings has seemingly shed some some additional light on what the company is doing for the next-generation of consoles.

As you may know, throughout the PS4's lifetime -- and even more so with the PS3 -- Sony has been swamped with criticism over PSN. It goes down often. It randomly slows down and even stops working. And it's missing some highly-requested features.

But it looks like Sony is gearing up to attempt to remedy most, if not all, of this with the PS5. A few months ago, a rumor made the rounds that PS5 would make substantial upgrades in the PSN department. And a new job listing only further reinforces this claim.

Last week, Sony posted a job listing for a Senior Network Operations Engineer at PlayStation's Alison Viejo offices located in sunny California. The listing featured the following snippet:

"As a primary member of the Network Engineering team you will be responsible for the development, support and mid to long term considerations of an advanced global IP network that adheres to the highest standards to provide robust, low latency game streaming services to PlayStation Now customers around the globe. You will help contribute to an automation first operations team (DevOps) to increase our efficiencies and ability to scale rapidly as we build the next generation PlayStation backbone."
