Cultured Vultures: We've got a bit of a shopping list of requests for the PlayStation 5 and its features. Sony, hear us out.
But no playstation n4g owner wants backwards compatibility ha ha. I don't want streaming, that's for sure
I'm pretty sure they do. Who would really be against the ability to play your old games? That's so silly.
Of course its a nice feature, but 80 million PS4s later, its obviously not a deal breaker. And Sony has been straight forward explaining why it happened. I think we all understand it wont happen again.
They said years ago that they wanted the ps4 os to be carried over to future consoles... Ps5 will have backwards compatibility due to having the same architecture.
I was making a jab at the idiots who downplay xbox for having backwards compatibility. It's just nice to be able to play any game on one box.
People say that because it's literally THE ONLY THING that xbox has going for it. Like great you can play your old games but how bout new ones made by talented studios that are exclusive for xbox?
Nobody downplay Xbox for having backwards compatibility. Don't play the victim.
"The buzz surrounding Microsoft’s plan to introduce backwards compatibility for the Xbox One going all the way back to the original Xbox shows that it’s a lot of effort but effort that ultimately pays off" .....yeah because the sales charts of Xbox One vs PS4 back this statement up as well
If you insert your XBox360 game that is on the support list into the drive of the XB1 for the first time you will get a download of the recompiled game that is X86_64 compatible and has been tested to your hard drive. It is this recompiled image that you can play. At no stage can you play an XBox360 game directly from your XB1's hard drive although you do need to put your XB360 DVD into the XB1 drive for authentification. Note: You do need an XBox Live account to allow the download of the recompiled XBox360 game for the supported XBox360 game. While this is not in the purest sense backward compatibility kudos does go to Microsoft engineers for coming up with an interesting solution. https://www.eurogamer.net/a...
Except most people are not denying that it's nice to have the ability simply that when it's the only thing happening for the system it's kind of a problem trust me most of us would not mind backwards compatibility but not with the trade-off of Microsoft situation with basically no games, in fact the only major announcement we've seen coming from these guys it's just articles about support of older games.
PS4 BC is likely gonna happen because the PS5 will likely use the same architecture as the PS4. You can forget about PS3 BC, it's never gonna happen. It's anybody's guess for PS1 and PS2.
PS5 will have enough power to emulate PS3's Cell processor. So, maybe.
PC can emulate a few PS3 Games. Sony has the actual specifications(and not just brute forcing) and talented engineers, of course they can make it happen on the PS5, which will be yet more power than the PS4 Pro.
With PS4. Sure, if the architectures are the same, I'd be pissed if it didn't and they instead pushed PS Now.
Why be pissed? What's stopping you from playing your current PS4 games 4 years from now?
Because if the PS5 had the same architecture, and fully capable of backwards compatibility(no emulation), then why would I need the PS4? I'll probably keep it, though. But, reason I'd be pissed is because it's them just trying to push PS Now subscriptions.
If the ps5 use a x86/64 cpu then there is no reason at all that it shouldn't have BC other then Sony trying to cash in on PS Now ..... @Z501 that's a pretty stupid question... I'm just glad consoles are no longer a factor for me sold my PS4 to my bro and I play the few ps4 exclusives by useing PS Now and PS3 games using emulators on PC ...Once you go to PC gameing you don't even wanna think about going back too consoles...
Which question? Why would 'I' be pissed? Nothing stops me from playing the games i already bought 3-5 years from now. Right?! Why would 'I' care that they're pushing psnow if I already own the games on psnow? ?We should be pissed because Sony didn't make something (they DIDN'T have to) convenient for us?
Support physical media.
^ This Physical discs
..optical media is dead.
@ marloc. For you and the younger generation it's dead. Not for old school gamers
Absolutely agree that us old school gamers love them.. ..going forward? No way. They do look great hanging from the rear view mirror though🙃
I'm an old school gamer but i ditched physical for digital and i regret nothing. I ran into cash problems and had to sell up but because i went digital, i still had my whole library when i repurchased...
Yes, this! I still prefer to have all my AAA games on disc. I don't buy much indy crap, so I don't mind if the few indy games I buy are digital.
lol this times 1000
Backward + physical disc
I think VR is going to be big, in particular online persistent worlds. The next gen will push for it, no doubt, while being an option of course.
I'm definitely wanting to see improved VR. But at the end of the day.. I could care less what the console is made of.. I know it will be next gen worthy and what matters is the games.. they know that now.. so as long as they keep pumping out masterpieces we've been blessed to play over the last generation.. i'm all in.
A faster HDD would be splendid
Even if it’s just a small ssd for OS, it would still benefit everyone in the end.
I wish developers would set a mode for SSD or scalable to Avg. Read/Write performance. I'd buy a 1TB right up.
Wouldn't matter. Developers/Firmware devs would have to assume a wide spectrum of read and write performance for various brands and models, they have to consider this if the HDD is user replaceable, and program with that in mind, for parity. Notice how load times don't improve much with SSD, you know that's BS.. it's a software limit.
Ehhh as I agree... I like the fact that they make it easy to change and leave that up to the consumer. Saves money and allows them to use it elsewhere in the design.
Give me games!! They can leave out crossplay, I don't care for it. I don't even use that feature on my PC
Exactly the only things I actually want to be honest are just games if they make their system features the same like we see on PlayStation 4 just more powerful they still have a day one purchase from me.
-Backwards Compatible PSN Digital Library (Including PS3 and PS4 Purchases) -Gift Friends Games Through PSN -4K 60FPS -Multiple colors/shades at launch (white, black, grey)
Omg I really want to be able to gift friends on psn. It makes no sense to me that it's not already available!
Seems as though PlayStation is leaving money on the table by not implementing such a feature.
Agreed. They could be getting more by way of birthday and Christmas presents. My nephews always want psn cards. If I knew what games they wanted, I could just buy them and add them to their library right away. I'd also like to be able to recommend specific games to specific people on my friends list within PS store.
That would be amazing
1, 2, 3, 5, 7 are completely useless for me. I'm not so demanding, I guess.
Give me a please insert disc 2 option
I'd like a PS5 and PS5 pro. Make 4k60 capable PS5 and a pro model with a beefer GPU for the enthusiasts(me).
The main thing I want from the PS5 is what PS is known for exclusive compelling interesting games first & foremost,a reliable capable system & native 4k resolution.Everything else is secondary.
All PS4 features Day 1 on PS5. Yes please.
A better disc capacity for 4K textures. And power enough for real VR games.
Only thing i would like to see from new consoles and they are doing it amazing already is lots of quality GAMES !. And they already look amazing now so i for one am good at least another 5 years with the PS4 and PRO.
This article is whacky. First off It starts by saying that the 360 one last generation in terms of sales. A statement that simply isn't true. Then is says the PS4 had a slow start, and owes it's current success do to Microsoft having messing issues at the start. The list. 1. Upgradable components. That's fine... but then he says make the hard drive easier to change. What?.. It couldn't be easier. Open the door, take out 1 screw, pull out hard drive, slide new hard drive in, replace screw, close door. Sound tough to anyone? 2. Games as a service. No thanks. 3. Get rid of physical media. Again... No thanks. 4. Backward comparability. Okay. 5. Cross play. No thanks. 6. All features of previous console day one. Yes please. 7. More exclusives. I don't think you have to worry about that with PlayStation.
Yes to crossplay
No to crossplay, if they want to play with us it must be on a PlayStation.
@ Michilim. I have a PS4 n XB1. Whu should I buy the same game for both systems although I can? Let me be more specific crossplay on consoles
BC imo is a must. To many great games on the PS4 I would want to be able to play on my new PS5.
I want full BC for the entire PS family, forward compatibility with all PS family games including games bought from the PS store, Full 4K with 60 to 120 fps support, 4TB Harddrive, Nov 5, 2021 release $500. I can only dream
How about a 4k Blu-ray player that should have been standard on the Pro
Because that's why we buy gaming consoles....
All in one media hub yes to 4K drive
Ya actually it's a big factor, for the majority it's also their primary media source.
Play digital games offline, that's all I need. I dgaf about b/c or physical discs or any sort of special blu ray player I just want to have all my existing digital library playable and able to download and play offline. And hold strong support for vr as well, the rest is pointless crap.
Power, advancement and less remasters, multi media playback in a large variety of formats
What I want to see: 1) 10+ TFLOPS, 16 GB GDDR6/GDDR5X plus some extra DDR3 for system functions(maybe 14GB GDDR6 and 4GB DDR3 or something?), and a 2TB HDD. Even if it's $459-499 for everything. 2) Good subtitle support. Plex has to burn in some subtitles when streaming from my computer. 3) Smooth OS. A little eye candy as well, but overall I want to be able to access PS Store and my streaming apps without it taking forever. 4) Backwards compatibility with PS4 games and a clause for charging no more than $10 for a simple res/fps update. 5) rating system for themes and search functionality, along with looking at themes via artist. Also better quality demo videos for them. 6) Freesync with the ability to set FPS. I like HFR but I'd rather play at 40-45 FPS. Especially if I buy an OLED in the future whereas the lack of motion blur makes some games look really fucking gamey. FFXV for instance looks too damn superimposed and sterile, not organic on an OLED screen at 60fps for instance, and strains my eyes as well. Even if no OLED gets Freesync in the future, the ability to play at 40fps is still inherent because of the 120hz refresh rate(40x3=120).
PS1, PS2, PS3 and PS4 backward compatibility (4K BluRay lens can read CD/DVD/BRD and UHD), there's no excuse this time. In terms of specs, 15TF, 32GB GDDR6 or 16 GB HBM2 with the last gen AMD CPU and GPU and 4TB HDD. Price: $499 or $399 taking a loss the first 2 years.
No excuse? The Cell has to be emulated on it which is damn near impossible for every game. It would turn into the same scenario where Xbox has a development team to gain compatibility with every game. Infact PS1/PS2 would be the same way, although much easier. The only BC that's native is PS4 because it's the same architecture. Also, the fact almost nobody owns a PS1/PS2 disc makes this an extremely tough prospect. If they reverse engineer to get the games running they'll likely be resold on the PS Store. I think it's not worth it personally. Most people would rather play a remake. I'll be open to PS3 emulation but to say there's "no excuse" if they don't is just laughable. The only thing there's no excuse for is PS4.
Backwards compatibility is a nice feature to re-visit your old game library,but I only seriously invest time in new games.I trade all my unwanted games and consoles and move to the next big thing,so unless I have it digitally I'm not going back
Everything except for cross play. Oh and physical copies need to be an option for all future consoles. I don’t care how many people downloaded games in the last’s year or whatever. Game collectors collect GAMES, not a PURCHASED sticker in a digital store
I want to be able to encase the console in leather, a drink holder, maybe an affixed dish to hold snacks, every action initiated to change screens with a star swipe motion, and a little awning over the disc drive to prevent rain from getting in... All joking aside, id like for the controllers to have a longer battery life and backwards compatability would be awesome.
Backwards compatibility for PS4 digital and physical discs would be great to have, as would features like being able to change your PSN name, and downloading the multiplayer portion of a game like Killzone which I believe was advertised but never materialised. More exclusives are definitely welcome, as well as more VR content, but I personally do not think Sony is going to suddenly change their stance on crossplay from what it is now.
You forgot to mention the thing you want the most: CLICK BAIT! What a sad website...
1. Physical (UHD Blu-ray). 2. Backwards compatibility (with PS4 at least, but preferrably with PS1 to PS4) 3. Dualshock 5 with longer battery life and no touchpad.
I just bought a ps4 pro 20 days ago though.
