Despite the PS5 on the Horizon, Sony will still push the boundaries of PS4 further.
After seeing GofT and TLofU2, I can believe it. After 106 million consoles sold and climbing, potentially 4 more years of console support, I wouldn't doubt it. There's still games and money to be made to offset the amount of launch PS5 owners of 1-5 million until that community grows over time.
As is the case with Sony and their strategy that has paid off every gen. They dont just stop selling or releasing games on the former once a new system comes out. That is what I admire most about them. They believe is support from beginning to end. I know not every company has to do the same thing but that is how you build consumer confidence in not only the product but the brand. Something MS should have taken notice of years ago. I can see the PS4 dropping to $199 after the PS5 comes out and they sell another 30+ million easily. In my house alone we have three (my kids all have their own).
I agree. Only thing I'm thinking is that they'll never reach PS2. The high price of current gen systems has taken so long to drop, that it has slowed up all sales. They made crazy money though because consumers kept buying at those prices. But systems should have already been at $199 one to two years ago. With this year being $149 for Christmas. Like the old days. Seems profits were more important to them than how many. They still reached 106 million so far. But I think they'd be at 120-130 million the old way. I guess the results of those profits means more risks like VR. So I'm not mad at them.
Holy sh*t man I finally agree with you on something. This can't really be darthv72
I mean there’s no reason to slow down, if the ps5 is backwards compatible (which they confirmed) then that’s all the better for the next gen console.
1 word - Dreams. ( I think it will be as good and as epic as LittleBigPlanet always wanted to.... but didn't have the install base or the marketing behind it... - I hope they market ithis thing properly!) Also I've always wanted a really good samurai sword play a game and onimusha just didn't do it for me back in the days. I think the new ghost game... Will be a big success.
Sony always supports their consoles to the very end and I welcome that.
Exactly. Every PlayStation gamer knows that.
Of course they will, thats how they will learn about ps5 and how to best utilise it.
Of course they will...with 11 big exclusive interesting titles releasing throughout this year & the possibility of some unannounced niche titles this year gaming should be fun for fans/owners of the PS4.
Lets be real, the PS4 is going to have another 2 years of games after the PS5 is released, 4 more if you include sports. I expect many of the first gen PS5 games to be PS4 games running at native [email protected] with PS5 features included. I expect TLofU2 to be 30 fps on PS4 pro and 120 fps on PS5.
I really want to see how ps4 games look vs ps5 games.
