Theres been a few rumors about the PS5, and thought it would be fun to see feedback from vgc on these, so here they are (ones Ive seens so far):

1  Blu-ray XL drives & discs.  Rumors are saying these are able to store 125 GB.  4k Textures = game sizes go up, so its needed.
    RDR2 could fit on 1 disc.

2  Backwards Compatabilitiy patent "Remastering by Emulation" ei. run older games at higher resolutions/ect maybe newer textures.

3  Built-In VR Functionality That Tracks Player Movement Without External Device.

VR2 Tech With Rotating Camera, Brings Motion Tracking Bracelets. (arm & finger movements)

So alot of people where saying PSVR is a gen 1 device, and by the time the PS5 launches VR devices of next gen will be hugely better and it looks like that much is true.  You ll wear bracelts that ll track your "arms & finger" movements inside VR.... This is what people have wanted, to be able to not just "see" inside a gameworld, but interact with it by reaching out and "touching" it with your own hands. The player movement tracking too, means you might see games that ll be able to have your avatar jump/squat/kick whatever as  you do so IRL inside the VR game.

Then theres the 125 GB disc, that ll be the savior of gameing for people that want to collect their games and not have to download them, with sizes of games ever increaseing.

Finally theres the backwards compatability thingy, it sounds like with how emulators on pc can run old games at higher resolutions ect + with texture packs and such, will be comeing to the PS5.


What are peoples thoughts on this? good start for the PS5?
