Sony PlayStation 5 : The Next Gen Begins

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.

And a Wii U game is more "next-gen" to CerebralTiger than open world games on far more powerful hardware 😂

Yes, imagine that. Nintendo has its priorities in the right place 🤷‍♂️

Meanwhile, Horizon Forbidden West still has pre-determined climbing spots. Heck, even the Assassin's Creed games are superior in this regard 🤣

Gran Turismo 7, after all, was outright advertised as a PS5 exclusive in December, although to be fair to Sony, I understand the decision to release a PS4 version was made only fairly recently. For Horizon Forbidden West and God of War, however, these games were always intended to release as cross-gen titles, I was told, but Sony did not mention the last-gen console during the announcement of either title.


So, Horizon and God of War were always intended to be cross-gen games, but GT7's cross-gen was decided late into development.

So its not about the hardware then?
It's both, really. The intent/vision has to be there for the hardware to be utilized. The Wii U cpu was good enough to allow the kind of physics system Nintendo EPD wanted, and the memory was enough for an open world game. Would it have run on the Wii? Hell no lol.

How did cross-gen (well, kind of lol) work out for CDPR btw? 🤣

Yeah, I think Jim Ryan hinted at GoW being cross-gen in an earlier interview as well. Question is, how on earth did Housemarque and Insnomiac get the privilege of making a PS5-only game. And why is Demon's Souls a PS5-only game, when all it really needs to be on the PS4 is proper loading screens for bonfire travel (besides the obvious downgrade in visuals) lol.

Fact is you don't know that. If it was a Switch only game you'd be saying it isn't possible on Wii U.

Can't blame cross-gen for lack of intent now, can we?

Imagine thinking a Housemarque game is developed on the same budget as God of War or projected to be a heavy hitter 🤣🤣🤣 (or even R&C for that matter)

Fact is, there isn't a major difference in the Wii U and Switch hardware capabilities. This is due to the Switch obviously also being a handheld. On the other hand, the difference between the Wii and Wii U is quite significant. So yeah, there's no chance BOTW could even run on the Wii at 480p, let alone run well lol.

Also, there has been no Switch-only Zelda game until now. BOTW2 is likely to be more of an incremental update over the first game (think OOT and Majora's Mask), but it'd be a pleasant surprise if that isn't the case.

So now you believe it a next-gen game? 🤣
Something on a technical level clearly doesn't scale well to last-gen hardware. No idea as to what it is tho. Required IO throughput, perhaps 🤷‍♂️

Kinda like there was no chance Watch Dog Legion would have to lower details to hit 60fps on PS5/XSX? :ROFLMAO:
Guess we'll never know in this case 🤷‍♂️

Nah, it's kinda like Watch Dogs Legion is a last-gen game that runs on PS5/Series X at higher settings, even at 60fps 🤣

Now explain to me how you would do instant transitions through portals in Returnal and Ratchet on PS4 lol.

PS5 SDK leaked via CDPR hack lmaooo 🤣

This will lead to piracy, exploits, cheaters using unsigned code in multiplayer games (aimbots, wallhacks), and last but not least, emulators.

Get f**ked, Sony!

Ah yes, the mythical PC that has been giving us Demon's Souls quality of visual fidelity for years now 🤣🤦‍♂️

I do agree that Demon's Souls is possible on 2018 PC hardware, though. If it gets a port today, it'll run better on a capable PC than it does on a PS5.

if you're coming from the perspective that ray tracing is the be all end all of graphics tech, then I guess I understand your point (even though I don't agree with it). If someone asked Necrokiller, he'd claim that Metro Exodus enhanced edition and Cyberpunk 2077 have the more impressive graphics tech 🤷‍♂️😄

For real 'next-gen' experiences, play Returnal or wait a few days for Ratchet & Clank: A Rift Apart.

The PSVR also had an OLED display. Why is Necrokiller so surprised? 🤣

I vastly prefer Valve's approach of using an LCD for the Index. The screen door effect on the PSVR was so bad 🤷‍♂️
