Playstation 5

I was thinking about picking up a PS4 and some games with some of my Trump charity. But I know PS5 is suppose to be coming out this fall or winter.

Does anyone else feel skeptical about that projected release time? What games are they going to launch it with? I guess Cyber Punk should be coming out around that time. I've been figuring the Last of Us 2 is getting pushed back so it can launch with PS5. I've seen people speculate that Horizon Zero Dawn sequel might be announced.

Also, they havent confirmed backwards compatibility which would be a huge issue for me. It's part of the reason i bought a PS3 first. There were a ton of games i wanted to buy and play. I have about 30 PS3 games and i've only played like 6 and completed. lol.

PS4 has quite a few titles I'd like to play also and if Sony fucks up again and doesnt to backwards compatibility, then I'll have the PS4 for somewhat cheap. If they do have backwards compatibility, then at least i'd have the games when i get around to buying a PS5.

I've also considered a switch, but PS4 just has more games that i really want to play.

Anyways, what have you heard or think about the PS5. I have a hunch that it will get delayed into 2021. I read somewhere they were still having really bad overheating issues with it. Who knows.


It dont matter who did what to who at this point. The fact is, we went to war. And now there aint no going back. It's what war is you know? Once you're in it, you're in it. If it's a lie, then we fight on that lie, but we gotta fight!

To answer some of your questions:

It's backwards compatible. But just with the PS4. No PS3 or 2 games will be played.

Today's news in regards to consoles is on the grim side is that roughly 5-6 million PS5s will be made in the first 2 quarters come launch time due to the 'rona. But Sony is saying it's because they're still kicking around the price an the components will be hard to come by. So unless you get a preorder the second you hear about it, they're likely gonna be tough to come by. 7.5 million PS4s were sold in the first 2 quarters of launch.

I think they'll launch when they're supposed to. If not a tad later. They'll no doubt want to be right there with Microsoft when their new Xbox launches.

Launch titles? No idea.

They will absolutely launch just before or on Black Friday so they can push those sales going into the holiday season. The lower console numbers at launch is them copycatting what Nintendo did with the Switch launch to artificially drive up demand and build more hype for the system.

There's been a couple games announced for the launch window, but nothing from the major 1st party franchises. Godfall is the best looking confirmed launch game. Speculating that Last of Us 2 and Ghost of Tsushima will also have PS5 versions as launch titles. Usual slate of 3rd party games will prob be announced too, like CoD, Battlefield and Assassins Creed. Maybe Cyberpunk as well.

Theres a big PS5 event streaming online next month though, will prob get the deets on some of the launch titles there as well as the official unveiling of the system itself.

All that said, unless you absolute need a PS4 right now out of sheer boredom, I'd wait for the 5 due to the backwards compatibility with the 4. Unless you can catch a really good deal on the 4 used right now or something.

Those overheating issues with it were bullshit rumors being passed around xbox fanboy sites btw and then rereported by minor gaming sites. It literally all comes from one anonymous reddit account saying "I KNOW A BUNCH OF DEVZ AND THEY SAY IT GETS TOO HOT".

Honestly dunno how anyone can even report those rumors with a straight face. Prob why none of the major gaming outlets have reported it. The devs at this point are most likely not working with the final consoles, they are working with development kits that are not indicative of the final consoles exact specs or form factor. If there were actual launch PS5s out in any capacity then we would have the final specs and pictures of the console itself by now. Nobody can keep anything quiet these days.
