Like I said in a similar thread; No I'm not.
PS1, PS2 and most importantly PS3 backwards compatibillity would have made me, but without...
I'm going to wait until I can get the disc drive version for below 400€

You're a PC-gamer?

Nope, I'm a handheld first, home console second gamer.

Why do you ask?

1) most games

2) frame rate boosts possible.

3) resolution boosts possible.

We've known this fora few months already.

You only have to look at the PS4pro to know how BC is gonna work. It's the same thing but stronger.

I dont think its clear at all how it will work.

Can I get my Bllodborne straight out of the box and play it at 4k 60fps/4k 30fps/1080p 60fps or will I have to wait for a developer patch?

If it depends on a patch that I have no idea when it will come, and if it will come, and my only advantage will be to play it at steady 30fps (since the original game suffers with it) then it will be a huge disappointment.

I still can't play GTA4 on Xbox One X at more than 720p 30fps because the developer/microsoft never released a patch...

You were already explained this on a different thread.

PS5 BC shall cover and work on most of the over 4000 titles released. It also will have automatic improvements based on both GDC presentation and post from Sony clarifying. And sure there may be patches from devs to make it better than just the auto.

Back to OP, unlikely to ever consider a PS5 purchase if frame rates are still 30. Sorry, cannot do it, unless I decided PC gaming wasn't an option.

Framerates are what each of the thousand devs decides to use. And if you want to chose the fps you want to play then by all means stick with PC, because even though some games come with "performance mode" 60fps won't be the standard in consoles no matter how much MS have been saying it will (and in the same show presents AC Valhalla at 30fps)

Why shouldn't I preorder it?

I will still have the option to cancel the preorder or sell it through (probably for a higher price) if I don't want it.

Just because there are many older games you can play on it.

But you probably have a big collection of older playstation titles laying around.

Is August 6th the actual date preorders start?

Not only older PlayStation games, but also Nintendo.

I own every system from the N64 to the Wiiu, GBC to the Switch, PS1 - PS4 and even both PSP & PSVita.

But I know that they wont work forever and that it cannot be guaranteed that there will always be 3rd party replacement parts to fix those systems.

So if possible, I'd like to avoid any further wear down and preserve them, while they are still functioning.

This is why backwards compatibillity is such a huge deal for me.

Especially because I still buy games for those systems, and games want to be played :)

That's nice,depending on where you live i could ship my old games to you.(those that i have left)

And that will only cost you the shipping.



No. I am broke and preoccupied with grad school. My PS4 and Switch backlog should keep me busy through the end of 2021. I will probably buy one the next time I move from my current address.

Thread is a little misleading. SONY has not announced an actual preorder date, but high chances it will be on the 6th of August. I will do it mostly just to retire my PS4 as soon as possible; been crashing a lot lately and I have a feeling it wont last much longer.
