Importantly confirms 30FPS, no thanks.

That's not even close to how it works. 

The refresh rate of the server is the only thing that matters.

You do know that's not how it works? Do you think PC players are locked to the framerate of the lowest player. 60 fps and 30 fps can play together just fine. 

Internet connection is probably the main factor for online performance between two people's experience but that happens on every system.

This is good news, but it could mean that PS4 games run on PS5 without further enhancements (over the PS4 Pro settings, if these are available), as these could give PS5 players a competitive edge.

I wouldn't expect more than Pro enhancements on games. MAYBE additional upscaling, but that's about it.



And some people still don't believe Sony confirmed the BC with PS4.

This is good news from Sony and confirmation which everyone needs to hear but I would also say that the expectation was probably expected. I know I pretty much expected this to be the case but you never know.

So Sony DOES believe in cross-platform play?

To be fair, Sony pretty much INVENTED cross platform play back on the PS3. They raised the question back then when games were crossplay on PS3/PC. They extended the offer to Xbox and were turned down as it is something that potentially messes with sales incentive.....Sony returned the favor in spades this Gen while the undisputed market leader.

>I think that honor belongs to Sega.

>They did it to Nintendo as well. They seem to have walked back the cross-play concept entirely this gen. Thankfully, they no longer hold Fortnite accounts hostage.

Yea, I guess the best improvements could come in games with unstable/unlocked framerates and/or dynamic resolution scaling as long as the BC mode still has some additional power over the PS4pro unlike how the Pro initially handled PS4 compatibility (by clocking down and deactivating CUs down to normal PS4 specs).



The faster loading of screens on the ps5 will outplay the ps4 versions
