    They could easily blow it like they did with PS3. Sony had a much bigger stranglehold on the gaming market back then coming off the dominance of the PS2.
    That's going to be hard to do given how weak the lolbox has been for the last 7 or so years.

    Sony started trashing Microsoft by the end of the PS3 life cycle and completely anihilated them with the PS4.

    Sony would have to go full re +1 to undo the advantage they hold now.

    They went full re in 2006. XBox went full re in 2013. Seems to be a tick-tock pattern tbh. Pushing ray-tracing could be Playstation's full re moment for 2020.

    Microsoft ed Microsoft by bombing their console announcement and having nearly zero game exclusives.

    I would gladly pay an extra 100 if it means non stop triple A games that are not only exclusives but top notch . Microsoft has a studio and developer problem that goes beyond console pricing.

    There so much the corpse of Halo can do for you.

    yeah and the ps2 was the highest selling console ever, sold 5-6 timse as many units as the xbox, and they still lost a ton of ground to microsoft that gen (though it helped that the 360 came out a year before the ps3...)

    I'm just totally angry that the backwards compatibility stops at PS4, even though I expected no different all this time. I don't understand, what is the point in not supporting older games? This just takes away more value from the new system.

    Well today AMD unveiled Navi 10 as an RTX 2070 compe or at significantly higher power consumption and $450, so this hype about the PS5 being a system with a really killer gpu just got a ton of cold water thrown on it. That was going to depend on AMD making m ive efficiency improvements with the lithography shrink to 7nm, but they're not even as power efficient as the Nvidia gpus on 12nm. To even hit a $500 price point with the current gpu price inflation I can't imagine seeing anything better than GTX 1660 performance. So we're probably looking at PS5 being 40-50% more powerful on the gpu side than PS4 Pro.

    At least they recognize it and might go back to the drawing board or at the very least tweak their .

    The PS5 was rush, imo. I know they've been kind of working on it behind closed doors but they just officially announced it last year with a 2020 release in mind. That always had the potential to crash and burn to me.

    I'm happy with the PS4 and I will keep it as long as I can.

    The PS4 cpu just sucks and completely bottlenecks the gpu in the PS4 Pro. PS5's cpu should put 1080p60 on the table. What development was Sony doing though? AMD is the one who did the heavy lifting. Hopefully Dear Leader goes down in flames November 2020 and Sony is willing to take the hit for a few months until a new president cancels those re ed tariffs.

    that guy mentions a rumor that it might be backwards compatible beyond just the ps4. that would be insane. if i can pop in ps3/ps2 disks in the ps5... that definitely makes it worth a day 1 purchase for me imo

    I'd be absolutely ing floored if it had PS3 BC. And almost as shocked if it had PS2 BC since Sony wants you to buy the digital versions of PS2 Cl ics with trophy support added in, not using discs you picked up at Goodwill for a dollar.

    The proprietary SSD would also give me pause for using PS5 as a PS2/PS3/PS4 replacement, especially if the er is soldered in and/or bound to the console (like the blu-ray drive in the PS3 or the hard drive in the OG XBox), making it not something I could easily replace like we can the PS3/PS4 hard drives.

    I'm going to be pissed if my digital PS4 library doesn't carry over to PS5, since I just buy whichever is cheaper between digital and physical for my PS4 games.

    Also you don't have any digital PS3 games? I have about a billion of them. I only put CFW on my PS3 to play Japanese games I couldn't buy from PSN like 龍が如く維新!and Nier Replicant.

    I guess if PS5 supports replaceable internal hard drives then I'd consider moving my old libraries onto it.

    oh, i'm sure if it will play the discs, they'll honor the digital versions. i was just giving a dumbed down comment of "as long i can play my games on the console, i'm happy"...

    you know when in the movies, there's the smart guy breaking down all the potential problems with a new device, and then theres the idiot with the actual decision making power who says BUT WILL IT WORK? i'm that idiot.

    all the hardware mumbo jumbo doesnt move me. if the console lets me play good games, i'm happy with it.

    and to answer your question, i dont have many digital ps3 games. i have infamous 1 and a remaster of max payne, as far as i remember. that and some DLCs
