Sony PlayStation 5 : The Next Gen Begins

PS5 Release Date, PS5 Games, PS5 Power vs Xbox One X, PS5 Price Speculation - All the PS5 Info lets discuss



Here are all the rumors and speculation surrounding the PS5, including a potential PS5 release date, power, and launch games of Sony's inevitable PS5. Is the PS5 releasing in 2019?


What we Want From the PS5 Speculation aside, what would we ideally want from the PS5? Backwards compatibility for PS4 games would be brilliant, simply because you'd be able to carry over classics like the Shadow of the Colossus remake to the next console generation. We've seen how well Microsoft is handling backwards compatibility with its Xbox One consoles (including getting amazing results updating Xbox 360 games to run in 4K on Xbox One X), and something similar on PS5 would be great.

In terms of pure power, the PlayStation 5 has to significantly exceed the power of the Xbox One X. This means featuring more games running in 4K at 60FPS. If the PS5 can deliver about 10 TF of power we'd be happy, as this would allow devs to create games that look a generation ahead of what we've got now.

But what would the dream launch lineup be for the PS5? Death Stranding and The Last of Us: Part 2 are hugely anticipated blockbuster games, with the former especially looking to push the performance of whatever system it's on to the very limit. We've also mentioned Ghost of Tsushima and a sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn, and the latter would be the perfect way to kick off a new console cycle from Sony.

We happy to see die hard basement dwellers meltdown on twitter over losing exclusivity. Way more fun than the actual games 🙌
oh you already own a PS4 and have played all of the exclusives anyway so you're not exactly part of those happy few people are you :p


So how many exclusives from first party studios have been lost so far? How thick is this gravy? lol

Just one?

The gravy is real thin but the Kool-Aid must be real thick in these parts :p

PS5 cries in the corner :ROFLMAO:
At the raye pre-orders are disappearing, I think they're going to be just fine, we both know that the both of us are going to become PS5 plus PC gamers in a little while anyway :p

more likely in your case that you will become a PS5 plus PC gamer and I will become a PS5 gamer.

In just a few tweets Geoff Keighley became a better Sony spokesperson than anyone on the company's PR team, announcing that, actually, some of these fancy games we had thought were PS5 exclusives... weren't.

Remarkably, Sony pulled its trailer from the PlayStation YouTube channel, re-uploading it to remove mention of PC. This was "human error", we were told.

Last night, there was a lot of human error flying around at Sony, wasn't there?
What happened to all Sony's guff about believing in generations? It was a load of old rubbish, it seems. Whether you believe in Microsoft's philosophy of launching its games across generations (I have concerns about the Xbox One holding games back, as I know some in the development community do), at least the company was honest about it.
The suggestion at the time was that Sony's announced PS5 exclusives were just that - PS5 exclusives. Sony, we were led to believe, was taking a different approach to its rival, Microsoft, which had for months taken flak for its cross-gen strategy. Today, Ryan's quote comes across as a misleading statement designed to score a cheap PR win in the war with Microsoft.
Cheap PR win sounds about right. Sony seemed to have purposely kept the communication confusing during the event. The average gamer probably still wouldn't know Miles Morales is on PS4 until the ads bring it up near launch lol

Interesting enough official comments from Sony since yesterday talk about games like Horizon FW being built for the PS5, which would mean the PS4 ports were likely a later decision and those ports may be more like down-conversions ala Rise of Tomb Raider on the 360 was compared to the XBO version.

Ah well, in either case no one looked at those trailers and thought "yeah this looks like a PS4 game" compared to some other notable examples which shall remain nameless :p

Built from the ground up for SSD and I/O...

still functional on PS4's HDD without gameplay compromises.

ohkay. scalability ftw!

Looks like no BC for PS3/2/1 games

:(



https://www.siliconera.com/jim-ryan-ps5-no-backwards-compatibility-with-ps3-and-older-games/

Famitsu: We were also surprised when we heard that it will have 99% compatibility with PS4 titles. By the way, will there be compatibility with PS1, PS2, and PS3 titles?

Jim Ryan: We keep in mind the engineering specialized for the PS5, as we produced the device. In the midst of that, the PS4 already has 100 million players; we thought they ought to want to play PS4 titles on the PS5 as well indeed, so we included compatibility with the PS4. While implementing that, we also focused our efforts on taking in the high-speed SSD and the new controller DualSense at the same time. So, unfortunately, we couldn’t reach the implementation of such compatibilities.

Man, this is just a flat out lie. Jim should've spoken the truth here that the decision was made due to financial feasibility. No one would've hated him for it.

If a game needs to run decent on 8GB of RAM/VRAM and low-spec CPUs, let alone vastly inferior I/O, it's definitely holding back a machine that's capable of much more.

Picture this: a potential PS5-only Horizon Forbidden West that primarily targets 30fps and has a world sprawling with NPCs with complex AI routines, more interactive environments, more procedural animations and complex physics, robosaurs you can ride that dash or glide through densely packed environments at blazing speeds. You could make the NPC count scalable, but toning down or doing away with the rest of the stuff just makes it a different game.

But Jim's justification would be, "Hey look, higher res textures, 60fps, and ray traced reflections are only in the PS5 version". With the exception of 60fps, these are superficial gains that may please the PC audience, but it's not what I expect from a game that takes advantage of a new piece of fixed hardware.

I'd really like Jim to tell everyone why Ratchet isn't on the PS4 lol.
