    Is the ps going to be cheap? Right now PCs can’t compare for the price that it’s rumored to be which seems crazy. Maybe prices will fall by the time new consoles come out.

    Think I’ll switch over from Xbox for the exclusives, namely the Spider-Man and Last of Us sequels.

    "DuelSense" sounds like a condom name, that looks hideous and cheap.

    I really don’t get console and pc gaming going forward. Consoles just don’t make sense anymore. They are trying to merge the markets with all the game passes and cross platforms. The ps will be powerful and probably better than pc at the start of the generation and then fall behind. What is the benefit of going ps this generation?

    Exclusives is the only real selling point of consoles now. I was going go get an Xbox for the next gen eye candy, but after thinking about it, a new PC is looking like the smarter option. You can play all the Xbox exclusive on PC anyway. Sony has so many development studio's, that you'll be missing out if you don't get a PS5. Phil Spencer's strategy leaves a lot to be desired.

    Over the weekend, Ubisoft published and then deleted a claim that the PS5 will not offer backwards compatibility with older PlayStation consoles.

    A post on Ubisoft's support site stated PS5 backwards compatibility would be available for "supported PlayStation 4 titles", but would "not be possible for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2 or PlayStation games,
    Sony is yet to discuss whether it might offer some form of backwards compatibility for older PlayStation consoles, so Ubisoft's statement raised eyebrows.
    PlayStation 5's support for backwards compatibility is still a little unclear. Sony has previously said it hopes to support "the overwhelming majority of the 4000+ PS4 titles" on PS5, though has avoided saying how many of these will be available at launch. Back in March, PS5 lead architect Mark Cerny said "almost all" of the top 100 PS4 games ranked by playtime would be available when the console arrives.

    There has been no mention of earlier PlayStation game support at all.

    That's basically everyone's dream broken then :joy: backwards compatibility playing PS2 and PS3 games would be mega nostalgia just make a PlayStation 5 in 2 years time that you can play old PlayStation games on then I'd say it's the best PlayStation ever so Sony please make it happen some way.

    So what exactly is the deal with there being separate consoles for digital and physical purchases?

    Just preferred choice if you prefer buying games on the PS Store buy the Digital while if you like the traditional way with the disc then it's a normal games console though I did read ages ago the Digital Edition has better picture quality than the standard PS5 interested to see if there the same price or the digital edition is more expensive I wish they'd include the memory card when buying the console they're like £70/€78 don't know if the PlayStation 5 will have one doubt it I personally don't know whether to wait a couple of years or so because I've got a PS4 Pro which is better than the original PS4 3 years later so Sony will probably release a PS5 Pro 2/3 years time.

    Gran Turismo 7
    My favourite was Gran Turismo 3 though this is more like GT4 which kept on freezing in the menu's when I played it so I didn't like it.
