I personally can't wait for 2020 holiday. Sooner even better...XD.

My ps4 been acting funny. Its way louder than usual too. And my controllers, all damn 5 of them is broken in some way. Either battery cant hold enough charge or L3 issues, where I cant press down to run or characters jiggle to the right.

God my life is filled with problems XD.

Hopefully ps5 wont sound like a car with muffler deleted mod.

I know that feel... To me, sometimes the L3 doesn't work right when I press up, and that's a pain in the ass in action games/rpg. 

But, that warrior is with me until today, and I intend to stay with it until the end. 😂

Come on people, we are all getting this new console as soon as we are able to. Let's be honest.

The vast majority of people end up waiting for a period of time. Otherwise a console's lifetime sales would be really front loaded, which doesn't happen with successful systems.

 

I've owned 11 different consoles throughout my life. The only one I owned at launch was the SNES; for all the others a period of time between 9 months and 4.5 years passed from launch before I got the system.

I am glad it's called the PS5. It'd be weird to suddenly have a name for it. I also hope like some other people have said that they try again with another handheld for this generation. I still love the vita. Though I don't expect much after how rough it went for the vita. Sad face. Probably will wait a while before buying a PS5 as I'm curious about how they will implement the backwards compatibility and I still have a lot of backlog games I'd like to finish first to help justify moving forward with my gaming career into the next generation. I just hope my old consoles hold on long enough. I'm not liking how my PS4 keeps crashing.

I’ll wait for a while before getting one, I have too many games on my PS4 and other consoles I have yet too finish. Unless some good games that really catch my eye come out in 2020 that are PS5 exclusive, i’ll pass.

Yes they can, that's what they did with the ps3 and with the ps4, they made a profit due to royalties and ps plus

True, PS Plus does add up a lot. I was just looking at Sony first-party titles and their attach rates with the PS4 being not as high as something like the Switch. But the membership cost probably makes up for that.

My price estimate is around 700 for a base model and 1,000 for a pro model considering its including an SSD and graphics processing with ray tracing

I don't think it'll be that much. It will likely be a little higher than PS4, but Sony needs to watch it with their intro price or there will be more than a few telling them to GTFO. I'd rather have the game prices be a little higher like $65 for your usual retail release.

 

Remastered games shouldn't be needed with the PS5. Just keep selling the PS4 version on PSN and offer a patch for PS5 owners with enhancements.

 

They should allow use of an external HDD at least for game saves. That would allow less write-cycling on the SSD. My concern with SSDs is their life span.

Some months ago I thought the PS3 compatibility was going to happen.

 

Nowadays, with the way they have been marketing PS Now, including its recent huge price drop, I believe that will not happen, as they will need it to keep the cash flowing by.

 

It’s virtually impossible because of how the PS3 was designed and coded. The PS4 uses a completely different system which is why PS Now is a thing. 

 

If I was a casual just starting to get into games and trophy hunting I would use it. But with dozens upon dozens of games on my backlog and the lack of time I have for gaming in general, I have no use for PS Now.

Well I know one thing. It's gonna be a long while before I own one.

 

My PS4 is only a few years old so it's gonna be a long minute before I'm ready to move on to PS5

Not really, the cell architecture is power PC just like the xbox 360, and they managed an emulator for the xbox one. Not saying it's not going to happen, but the money is too good for them to include it

6 pages and nobody here is wondering what shade of blue @Sly Ripper is going to use for the inevitable PS5 logo that will go on our profiles? :hmm:

Ok so PS4 backward compatibility but will it be for the entire PS4 library or just the main stream games, kinda like how the PS3 was backwards compatible to only a few games on the PS2?

Dunno. A while ago the tags were different on our profiles. (tags was the word I couldn't remember in my initial post I'm glad you used it lol)

Looking at it now, I see what you mean (Sony's are a grayish color). Perhaps a white tag with blue outline and text? :hmm:

The Wired article was a great read! It's definitely an interesting way they're choosing to tease the console this time around, but I like it - Kind of like the way games and consoles were teased back in the day

 

Here's hopes "Holiday" 2020 is the first holiday of that year - New Years 2020, Amirite? :ninja:

And all PS3s play PSone! That's more full gens than any current console. Xbone gets bits and pieces of games that can be resold digitally. Otherwise you get fuck all. [let me play Brute Force on my Xbone damn it]

Almost as laughable is the stupid 'retro' consoles like the PS1 Classic, the NES Mini and the Sega Mega Drive which all do a poor attempt at recreating the 'good old days' of gaming. There is nothing about those systems that stand out to me, and this is coming from a guy who has played emulators for over 15 years.

 

PC still reigns when it comes to backwards compatibility, nothing else comes close. Then again it's a PC which has the big advantage of customization, which consoles don't have.

 

The PS2 was able to play PS1 games so that's nothing new. I just want a system that can play different generations of games. None of this PS Now garbage.

I might get the PS5 at launch (or day one) when any of the two things will be launch titles: Uncharted and/or God of War.

Full Backward compatibility for PS4 library is a nice feature for PS5. But if not, not a deal breaker for me. I have my PS3 (9 years) and PS4 (3 years) still in pristine condition.

I thought Naughty Dog was done with the Uncharted series. I wouldn't mind a game starring Sam Drake, even if he was a complete shoehorn in The Lost Legacy.

 

Sony Santa Monica is probably developing a new God of War game as we speak. I would much prefer a prequel of sorts because we still don't know what happened to Kratos after the events of God of War 3. How exactly he ended up in a world of Norse gods and mythology, including his future deceased wife which is what much of the plot in God of War 2018 focused on.

PS1 Classic is a particularly poor excuse for one. Why did Sony use some system-on-a-chip hardware instead of just sticking PS VitaTV hardware in the shell? If they did it like that, they could sell you games from their PS1 (also PSP & Vita) library on PSN. What a great way to miss an opportunity. The lineup has some good games, but 20 leaves you wishing you could add more. And some games aren't NTSC versions- instead they're the PAL ones.
