Sony PlayStation 5 : Comin Nov 2020

PS5 Release Date, PS5 Games, PS5 Power vs Xbox One X, PS5 Price Speculation - All the PS5 Info lets discuss


Here are all the rumors and speculation surrounding the PS5, including a potential PS5 release date, power, and launch games of Sony's inevitable PS5. Is the PS5 releasing in 2019?


What we Want From the PS5 Speculation aside, what would we ideally want from the PS5? Backwards compatibility for PS4 games would be brilliant, simply because you'd be able to carry over classics like the Shadow of the Colossus remake to the next console generation. We've seen how well Microsoft is handling backwards compatibility with its Xbox One consoles (including getting amazing results updating Xbox 360 games to run in 4K on Xbox One X), and something similar on PS5 would be great.

In terms of pure power, the PlayStation 5 has to significantly exceed the power of the Xbox One X. This means featuring more games running in 4K at 60FPS. If the PS5 can deliver about 10 TF of power we'd be happy, as this would allow devs to create games that look a generation ahead of what we've got now.

But what would the dream launch lineup be for the PS5? Death Stranding and The Last of Us: Part 2 are hugely anticipated blockbuster games, with the former especially looking to push the performance of whatever system it's on to the very limit. We've also mentioned Ghost of Tsushima and a sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn, and the latter would be the perfect way to kick off a new console cycle from Sony.

State of play is starting:

Again, no new PS5 announcements at this one, its just a PS4/PSVR focused one.

A form of boost mode for the fourth's games would be ideal! But if they patch each and every major release to 4k/60 that would be sweet!

The State of Play was an indicator of how bleak the future is for the "gimme ma' Spiderman Miles Morales without 'reshade presets'" segment of PS4 owners who won't be upgrading to PS5 at launch :ROFLMAO:

Miles Morales? Pffft. More people will be buying next-gen consoles for Cyberpunk 2077 than Spider-Man: Political Correctness Edition :ROFLMAO:

lol Spiderman destroys The Witcher 3 wrt to sales on the PS4. Had Cyberpunk 2077 been a next-gen only title, Miles Morales would've done the same.

lmao @ destroyed. Show us what difference is being called "destroyed" here? If anything, Spider-Man's sales wrt the PS4 install base isn't all that flattering.

Considering the decades worth of brand identity associated with Spider-Man, Witcher 3 sales at ~30million thoroughly destroy the shit out of Spider-Man.

Spiderman only falls short of 3 Call of Duty games, GTAV, and RDR2. No Witcher 3 detected. And while that doesn't represent global sales, it's safe to say the game sold about the same in other markets. On PS4, the Witcher 3's sales figures are destroyed by that of Spiderman.

Considering the decades worth of brand identity associated with Spider-Man, Witcher 3 sales at ~30million thoroughly destroy the shit out of Spider-Man.
On 4 platforms. And number of copies sold is a useless way to gauge success. For all we know, most of those sales happened when the game was sold for peanuts. Where does it stand in terms of Dollar sales?

    Plus being an RPG with many key bindings, im sure the huge amount of customization on the Steam Controller will make the control scheme way more intuitive than on these regular controllers

  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    It requires shooting so its mouse or Steam Controller for me

    Cyberpunk will probably play pretty well on a DS4 :p

    Thats where I use Steam Controller when i want to. Or anything heavily reliant on right stick movement

    Shooters continue to feel awful on a controller to me.

    its just more comfortable playing games with a controller

    no don't be sorry, but don't get upset if others point out the flaws/hypocrisy in them as much as you love pointing out how much of a 360 fan I was :p

    Yup, CDPR kept MS out of the loop. I'm sure they'd much rather have had a Cyberpunk themed Series X instead

    sure, so now your steam controller is collecting dust, one of the 3 is getting a short end of the stick one way or the other :p
    Its not though... see, all your oddities are you own assumptions lol

    Its an amazing looking controller with the best plug and play compatibility on PC and i already play games on it which aren't reliant on analogs stick so why not 🤷‍♂️

    That was a complete marketing failure lol. CDPR didn't communicate the delay to MS, and it put the latter in an awkward situation with that Special edition console lol
    weird to make a One X, instead of waiting for the Series X or S, considering the game itself is coming out *after* the new consoles, would have made a lot more sense.

    a/ you don't like analog sticks, b/ the game its themed after is a shooter which requires the analog sticks extensively c/ you're not even gonna use that controller to play said game it's branded for, but save it for some future use maybe (?)
