Change the title for clarification.
I came thinking this was a thread about someone confused xD

Well Shikamaru was confused about it, and some discussing on the thread he created were also confused.

Mr Puggsly: "Hehe, I said good profit. You said big profit. Frankly, not losing money is what I meant by good. Don't get hung up on semantics"

Assassin's Creed titles and a couple others from Ubisoft are also not compatible apparently:

This falls under the information Sony also released that some titles other than those 10 may be included and also that some titles could show errors, bugs and missing features (which would be the case for these games). Plus they can be patched by dev.

Incorrect.  Also that is the issue with creating this thread. It removes all the info from the previous thread.

Also the issue with why people need to actually read the things they link to.

That ubisoft blog post? Gone. Deleted. Taken down. It was wrong.

So instead read this thread https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread/243696/on-the-subject-of-ps5-backwards-compatibility/

Didn't know about that, thanks for the clarification



Also two games use boost mode being god of war and Ghost of tsushima so that you can play them in 60fps in resolution mode.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

You're welcome.  IGN did a better job of reporting the updates than others.

  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

I feel like we've been here before...have we been here before?

I mean seriously, the PS5 will be running most PS4 games. Maybe not all with enhancements, and maybe a small number will not run as smoothly as the native hardware...but it should be pretty obvious by now that the odds of the PS5 running you entire personal PS4 library are pretty damn high.

IGN, who would expect it right?

Kinda of, but the thread was closed.

Still confussed.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Don't forget to order you PS4 camera adapter (USB plug) if you have a headset
https://global.support.playstation.com/s/pscamera-adaptor?language=en_US

Unless you live in Canada like me, that version of the site is still not working. And trying to order from the link above (which does allow Canada as shipping address) you can't complete the form since it says "ZIP/Postal codes must contain letters and numbers only" for Canadian postal codes. (which contain only letters and numbers, yet 6 instead of 5 as in the USA, it doesn't accept 6)

This one https://global.support.playstation.com/s/pscamera-adaptor?language=en_CA does nothing.

That's super weird as it worked for me the day they announced this news and I am in Nova Scotia.
