Imagine PS5 being backwards compatibility to all Playstation consoles, damn that would be sick!

Well it would be possible, PS5 should be powerful enough to software emulate the PS3. But it won't happen.



Predictions (Made July 2019)

LTD: PS4 - 130m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 52m       2019 : PS4 - 15m, Switch - 18.8m, XBO - 4.8m        2020: Switch - 22m (Peak Year)

They would have to fuck up pretty hard to not make it backwards compatible. The question is if they will bother to make the PS4 forward compatible.

spoiler: they won't because they're assholes

What? That would limit PS5 games. I want a true generational leap.

I want big leaps too but then Sony decided to make another console.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Stopped reading when I read 'Michael Pachter'



Not likely, but I can see a PS4 Pro slim coming in 2019....with 4K player :P



Well this just confirms that the PS5 WILL NOT release in 2019 since Patcher is predicting it lol.



The absence of evidence is NOT the evidence of absence...

I personally am expecting a PS5 release during holidays 2020.

It'd be awesome, but I don't ever expect that to happen.



We need a new concept before we need new hardware. What are we going to do with 32GB of RAM, 16 core CPUs etc.? Just more resolution - there are diminishing returns already.



Nah, too soon.
The games would look like they are now in ps4 pro.



...Pachter

So this is a good thing since the PS4 Pro is less than a year old.
