Forums - Sony Discussion - PS5 Confirmed Backward Compatibility

Mark said on Spiderman it took 15sec to load a new area, and with this new SSD it took 0.8sec. holyshizzles!

In this case at least (though I'm sure Xbox will also have it now), I was wrong about Raytracing (though we'd need to see more). Hearing that it'll pack an SSD faster than my PC is capable of is the bananas part! O_O

from what I understand is that the raw speed will be achieved in tandem with faster some sort of custom I/O boosted by SW

All speculative till spec reveal anyway.



                                                                                                                                            

I wonder if Sony will bother with a new controller? I skimmed the article and didn't see any info ( might have missed it though ). I'm mostly happy with the DS4. The overall design and ergonomics are lovely. But I have had issues with durability.

I saw some info floating around about confirmed info about PS5. I thought it was clickbait nonsense, but looks like it came from this interview with Cerny.

I only skimmed through it for now, but the part about the section in Spiderman that took 15 seconds to load, only taking 0.8 seconds on a "low-speed" version of the PS5 dev kit, was really impressive.

Being based on the PS4 architecture, I hope there won't be many remasters of PS4 games that were remasters of PS3 games. The the PS5 itself sounds promising though...



If true it will have SSD and a lot of our forum experts were fooled by sony on this /joking.

So the previous leak are almost 70% true,  bigger Hard Disk but at the same time include small SSD/Nand flash memory , Zen 2, and Navi (probably Navi 10), backward compatibility, integration with the cloud gaming lke remote play,  beside the performance number like 14 - 12 teraflop, all leak has been confirmed . So YES I am excited.

its BC, boost mode probably carries over, so probably not as many considering how big digital is these days.

That said, I can see the potential for PS5 paid patches, that is if you want an upgraded PS5 version of a PS4 game you just pay for the update myself. just bouncing an idea

Will this be the end of remasters that are only 1 gen apart?? lol

If indeed this is true then honestly this is great news as my backlog is taking awhile to complete but would love to move forward as well.

Probably not. I can think of those kinds of remasters that have happened before even when the new console was backwards compatible at least.

Well I can understand moreso if it was from PS2 games to PS3 because of remastering to HD resolution.  But how much better do we really need from PS4 games upscaling to whatever PS5 will be?
