Sorry but no, it is not going to be a “smooth” transition. Xbox is doing a smooth transition with cross gen launch games. Sony is basically saying “you want the newest games, buy the PS5”.
I guess PS1 to PS2, and PS3 to PS4, and WiiU to Switch were just 'rough' launch and transition periods.
Heh, sounds like Sony and Microsoft are in a giant game of chicken. First one to swerve has to set the price.
I mean, if you want to believe baseless assumptions on a vague comment sure.
