ugh, I don't want to play with those lame PS4 peasants.

Hey, you're using the same logic as Sony when they rejected crossplay with Xbox and Switch.

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

It was officially confirmed. You don't have to acknowledge the ignorant.

But Sony shouldn't bother, they already said nobody uses BC when trashing the X1's BC.

sony is doing so many things right. what can possibly go wrong?

They still have time to announce digital only don't worry.

which would contradict what they said to their shareholders just a few weeks ago



Why wouldn’t it work like this?

They asked what could go wrong.  I gave an answer.  Not a likely one, but still an answer.

This would better explain why Lockhart may exist and why it may be around 4TF. If Pro is going to become the 'base PS5', it's going to be a 4.2TF console for $299 by that time most likely. If MS sticks with XB1X specs, it'll be at least $349 if not $399, which won't be good for them up against a cheaper PS4 Pro that works with the PS5 ecosystem. You would have to assume in this case that Lockhart would have at least 8 cores, 8 Ryzen cores probably, but if it happens to only have 4 or 6 Ryzen cores, a casual will see the 8 core Pro and very well may assume it's better because more cores, which wouldn't be good for XB either.

I'm not so convinced that all cross gen games will necessarily be 30fps. If they are already set at that on PS4, then sure, they will stay that way even on PS5, but for the PS4 games running at 60fps, I think they will remain at that as well on PS5. What we may see is that with new upcoming cross gen games, the PS5 version may be able to play full 4k/60, while the PS4 version will be 900p/60, and Pro being 1440p/60.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

Kind of expected ... I mean everyone else will do the same moving forward ( Xbone to Scarlett, Switch to SuperSwitch)

Is there actually any reason to get the PS4 Pro when PS5 is coming with BC?

Price point would be the only reason now

You can never underestimate the power of a low price point. It helped PS2 sell over 155M units. My guess is the PS4 will be $199 by the time PS5 launches. Maybe even $179. And the Pro will be $299. The PS5 is probably going to be $150-$200 more than that. Budget shoppers will buy the PS4 or Pro, since they both will be supported for another 2-3 years after the PS5 launches.



Interesting. Makes me wonder how many people will wait to upgrade. Last gen had titles getting ported to 360 and ps3 with only graphical downgrades for a good 2 years or so. As Mentiel and others pointed out, I see many a consumer being cheap and waiting on next gen until prices fall. And that's not counting if Switch sales stay strong and affect Sony/Microsoft.



How about announcing some LoD Remake now?
