PS5 Confirmed Backward Compatibility

Forums - Sony Discussion - PS5 Confirmed Backward Compatibility

At the same time it seams like a very strange annoucement. I see it as " Don't worry, we hear you, we won't be at E3, cause we are hard at work. Just wait a little bit for some real news, anyway PS5 is a real Monster". 

Anyway that interview gave a lot of info, so it seams the specs are set in stone at that point, and with more and more dev kits going out they wanted to cut all the speculations. The march 2020 lunch seams now more and more probable. Cerny even hints that a lot of games gonna be cross gen.

Give me TLOU2 with ray tracing and i will be in heaven.

Uhm..... that whole article reads like a marketing fluff piece written by Sony themselves. They're getting really desperate to sell it as something revolutionary when it's a mere simple hardware upgrade. Nothing wrong with a straight upgrade, but I can't take all the marketing bullcrap.

Its a short interview about whats next. I cant see any marketing bullcrap you are talking about. 



More importantly, Death Stranding will not release until around PS5 is out; mostly the case for FF7R as well. PS5 : Launching with Death Stranding and FF7R

With how FF7R has gone I wouldn't be surprised if it is a mid-gen release on the PS5 at this point.



At least we wont have ppl claiming the PS5 wont possibly have PS4 BC

Just need pricing!

That's just viv being viv. Probably lost a string of matches in Rocket League today or something.



 

 

 

 

 

this is all well and good But i really wanna improvements in controllers battery life, quick charge or wireless charging pad and most of all Haptic Feedback, Nintendo Switch HD vibration should be the standard next gen

I couldn't agree more on the controller battery life.  I usually have vibration turned off so that point to me is meh.  Even my Spider-Man edition PS4 controller is already dying much faster than I would want it to when I use it wirelessly. 



Since PSVR will be supported, I wonder if it will allow supersampling by default or native 120fps for ps4 VR titles. I just hope there will be a better solution for VR controllers which will still work with the old titles once PSVR 2.0 arrives.

I think the entire point is that everything is going to work going forward. PSVR with its current controls will work on PS5 PSVR games but will obviously be limited by what PSVR 2.0 will be (which should include different controls).

Controller change is most definitely going to happen. Current PSVR only works the way it does because someone was experimenting with Move tech at Sony.
