    Going all the way to the PS1.
    I wonder how they'll do this, will it be through emulation or will they replicate the CPU/GPU of the original consoles.
    This also includes the PS3 so I doubt it's all emulation.

    It says rumor in the link and it's a marketing gimmick, not gonna happen.

    So what they said that about ps3 too and it ended up only on a special version that they promptly discontinued. You think they are gonna set you up to spend time on all your old games instead of selling them to you again thru downloads?

    Sony more like SJedily. That reminds me of the time we got lol sporty convinced to vote for Scott Weiner

    I wonder if PS7 will be compatible with PS5 games?

    My hubby has a PS4 (maybe it’s a PS5, idk), and he can now play COD with my son on his Xbox. That’s pretty cool.

    I know you all probably know this, but I thought that was cool.

    yeah but most games don't support cross platform play because microsoft, sony and nintendo are all huge faggots

    While us fortnite players get the shaft

    They're using an architecture now that operates similarly to pcs, meaning no more exotic designs exclusive to each generation and a more unifies approach, thus ps4 games work right out of the box without any workarounds needed.

    You better be waiting in line and get the first version out the door then or you may end up fucked like those people who waited to purchase the ps3 only to get the later versions that didnt support backward compatibility.

    That doesn't happen in this day and age.
    Back in the 00s only whites and asians had access to gaming and the companies could get away with only having enough for a few million people at launch.
    Now days there are dozens of millions of useless eaters to cater to.

    I hope there will be a diaaster report for the ps5.
    Would be interesting to see a game like that make use of the new technology.
