"Will the PS5 be backward compatible with PS4? What will the controller look like? Can the PS5 launch with The Last of Us Part II?
Isn't he also Nintendo Enthusiast?
Ditto for Xbox as well.
Okay thank you ☺
Another pointless article speculating about something only Sony knows the answer to.
Sometimes it's fun to spectate.
I love to spectate my remaining teammates, possible help them out if I spot something they don't, especially in BR.
Yes it's fun to speculate but not when it's the same 5 points you've heard from a million other youtubers lol, seriously we get it, bc with ps5 we'll duh, psvr2 with less wires well duh, it's gonna be AMD well duh. These youtubers are sprouting out the same shite, not just with nxt gen speculation but with games too. Do you want to hear some actual ps5 news, here you go share play 2.0 will have live streaming on YouTube, twitch etc where they can pass the controller to say a patreon live (playing a unreleased game maybe) Or allowing a ps5 user to share play a a ps5 game to a ps4 psn friend? Not all playstation fans give a dam about bc so apart from ps4 games (all ps5s play ps4 games) , ps1/2/3 will be subscription based with a evolved psnow. (also able to share play for a limited time with psn friend who doesn't use psnow) These are just some talking points for nxt gen systems not the same old dribble these youtubers talk about (to think patreons give them money) wtf.
I just really cant wait to see what they will be pulling off with this new era of CPUs. Last gen to this gen was pretty much just a brute force very linear step forward, we didn't have any breakthroughs like 2D to 3D or SD to HD. This time however we've had quite the breakthrough in CPUs thanks to AMD and the Zen based CPUs. just can't wait to see what that brings to the table. There's also Raytracing GPUs if they somehow figure out how to pull that off on the lower end GPUs that end up in consoles, would be insane if one of them manage to pull it off. Doubt it'll happen, but it'd be cool
Yes and VR which I expect would come along with the ps5 requires a lot more of the CPU than traditional gaming which relies heavily on GPU so next gen I'd expect to see a well rounded machine a zen CPU and and GPU with I hope at least 16 gb ram. However this will drive the actual consoles price sky high
Vr is not CPU intensive. It's GPU intensive and the reason is that you need at least 60fps PER EYE, essentially 120fps, though you can make 90fps work with some ticks. That's your min. And it needs to be BASICALLY locked there. It's all GPU. On PC you can play VR games on a decade old CPU if you put a nice graphics card in your box. Or prime example the ps4 which has a 6 + year old mid range laptop CPU but.. does VR.
So I’m not tech savvy in the sense of knowing the difference and power in all the chip sets and whatnot. Do you think the PS5 has the potential to make a significant leap in the advancement of video games? Any examples you can give that the ps5 might be capable of that we haven’t seen yet? I’m always wondering if we will ever see those big breakthroughs in the way we did in the examples you gave above.
In my opinion the breakthroughs have to come from the tools. Game development has scaled up to a point where hundreds of people are working in a AAA game for 5+ years. Better tech always results in a more complex workload which means more man-hours are invested to achieve the same goal. This raises the budget of the games. The higher the budget the higher the risk meaning more publishers are inclined to play it save. Even if continuing to raise the budget indefinitely would be an option, scaling up the dev teams even further becomes a logistic nightmare and waiting even longer for games to release will be hard to accept for both gamers and investors. Raytracing would certainly help with cutting down some of that development time but the tech isn't there yet to support more than a hybrid-approach between raytracing and rasterisation which still requires a lot of time intensive trickery to achieve a convincing outcome.
Imo ps5 will be a evolution of what's made ps4 so successful (2.0 share play etc) 1)More detailed worlds (not any bigger pls) 2) advancements in physics 3) advancements in AI (F. E. A. R should not be the best AI in a game from 10 plus years ago) 4) share play 2.0 5) psvr (ps1 level) will skip ps2 level psvr and jump straight to ps3 AAA games quality with psvr2.
Well a since the ps4/xbo came out, there was a pretty big breakthrough in CPUs which basically gives you 2x the power(not entirelyaccurate but for simplicity sake)for half the cost. So next gen systems should get a real leap in cpu power. This will greatly increase the simulations that can be pulled off next gen. So things like A.I. and physics will be able to greatly improved in both quality and quantity. We could see things like very densely populated cities, far more impressive destructive environments, more accurate/physics based animations, more effects going on on screen etc.
I'm thinking Sony will be clever. The Cell processor had a(I believe it was real time) ray-tracing demo way back in the day. I wonder if certain dedicated ray tracing hardware can also open the door to emulate powerPC architecture like the Cell. I don't know the similarities. Just an observation. Ryzen will certainly be used. I expect with another unreleased GPU, and it will hopefully be a new class and not just another 7nm shrink of existing ones. @Pennywise138 I think 60fps will be the standard going forward, with few exceptions. If ray tracing is commonly implemented then we might see that leap. VR will also have better implementation with more performance for more ports and possibilities.
Want to know what the next gen will bring? More of the same. 60fps won't be the norm, that is purely up to the developer, not hardware. All games in this gen could be 60fps, it's just the devs don't want to tone down there games. Will their be ray-tracing? Possibly, but what I've seen it's not that impressive. Yes it looks pretty in screen shots, but in the heat of battle we won't notice it.
@shaggy2303: I agree there won't be a 60fps standard but I've no doubt that we'll see the norm shift more towards 60fps games next-gen. We are already seeing more 60fps games this gen and with higher resolutions hitting diminishing returns I could see more devs willing to invest those recources into higher framerate instead. VRR might also play a role as it gets more common on TV panels. We might see more games running with unlocked framerates. What you've seen from ray-tracing is still mostly based on rasterisation. It's a hybrid approach with some elements of the render pipeline being ray-traced. The samples per pixel are very low for now. That's why they need to denoise the output. Ray-tracing and hopefully Path-tracing will make the 3D graphics workload a lot more managable for the artists working in game development at the cost of a much higher workload for the GPU. It'll take much more than next gen console hardware to get us to that point though.
I don't think 60fps will be standard on next gen consoles. It will likely be somewhat more common--mostly on simpler indie titles--but it won't be the standard for demanding AAA games. Developers could have made 60fps standard any generation, but they generally choose to focus on better visuals and more engaging gameplay interactions.
I don't think we need an article for a guess.
Another pointless article and lets get this straight LOU 2, GOT DS will be releasing on the PS4 where Sony would want its over 100 mil customers (by then when these games release) to enjoy the games and Sony can earn a lot from over 100 mil customers than a hand few from PS5.. and Yes this games will release on the PS5 as well.
This is pointless,the PS5 will release when Sony officially announces it.
Rdr2 VR and I'm done with life.
My online hope is they make the DualShock slightly shorter in width. Uncomfortable for certain games. Xbox now rules Nintendo for the best allround controller IMO
There is a nice smaller official controller with Sonys stamp of approval out there you might want to look into, bought it my 11yr old nephew. Actually a really nice controller
I will look into it. Thank you.
They widened it to stop people's thumbs bashing together in the middle. IMO the DualShock4 is the greatest gaming pad I've used (apart from the battery life and the peeling thumbsticks).
I actually didn't know that. If they take it in just a tad it would be on point. I like to fully grip a controller and this is why the Xbox controller works so well for me. Sadly, there gaming efforts hit the rocks last 2 years so I got rid. Here is to the next generation.
I hope they focus on FHD & 2k resolution 60 fps with super upgrade on graphics rather than 4k resolution with small upgrade on graphics and less fps
since vr will be a very important next gen, the ps5 controller better be a combination between dulshock 4 and move so it works for regular and vr games as well. imo everything you need for vr gaming exept the headset itself should come with a regular ps5 purchase to keep vr upgrade costs as low as possible. best way i can think of the controller in my head right now is, cut the dualshock 4 in half and morph the 2 pieces into something that's similar to a gun so yo can easily hold and control it with one hand but have the option to put it together into one piece that's similar to the regular dualshock 4 right now.
That would be the most uncomfortable controller ever made.
I hope Last of U2 come out this year on the PS4. It's going to take me forever to save to get PS5.
Hoping the ps5 controller is exactly like the dualshock 4 with convex thumbsticks like the ps1/ps2/ps3
I want full BC with PS4, PS4 games to be available for download on PS5(without having to rebuy them, if I already own them), and PS5 patches from developers to incentivize purchases of old PS4 games. I want the PS5 to be the best version of the PS4 so I can buy it on day 1. Then I want new games on it.
People always post a shitty looking bananapad, every single time a new PS is near. What's with that? Banana obession?
holiday 2020 with an announcement summer 2019
That controller looks horrible, hope that's not the finished product
What exactly did I just learn?
Ps5 will be the next gen console that everyone wants
Symmetrical sticks suck
