That's what Sony are saying, yes. Reports today are suggesting that it's a feature still being developed, but Sony are aiming for complete compatibility with PS4 titles, rather than a selection of games.
Oh god we don't want another boring Rockstar game do we?If it launches with GTA 6 then shut up and take my money!
Yes...Yes we do want another Rockstar game Why wouldn't we when there so amazing.Oh god we don't want another boring Rockstar game do we?
Sony said their original plan was full backwards compatibility so that you can play a game on a PS4, save it, then continue playing on a PS5 and then go back and continue on a PS4 - completely seamless cross generation. This might be where they are having troubles but I'm sure they can sort it even though backwards compatibility is a very tricky thing as seen on other consoles.
Cost-friendly to the mass market they don't want a repeat of the PS3 they learned their lesson, the mass market won't buy something that is deemed too expensive which at the time £425 for the launch 60GB PS3 was deemed too much.Cost-friendly according to who though...?
The "justification" for the price could be along the lines of "If you have this sort of kit inside a PC it'd cost you £1000* so the PS5 is really cheap in comparison!".

I really hope you're right!Cost-friendly to the mass market they don't want a repeat of the PS3 they learned their lesson, the mass market won't buy something that is deemed too expensive which at the time £425 for the launch 60GB PS3 was deemed too much.
Let's not forget a big percentage is parents buying for kids, that's why they went with £350 for PS4 at launch and why they will most likely go £400-450 for PS5.
You presume, that people all want to play UHD discs, as opposed to downloading them and / or streaming them...The Pro and no UHD.
Does Blu-ray have a place in the streaming future?www.techradar.com
"Sony's preference for its own components appears to have backfired when it comes to Ultra HD Blu-ray. The simple truth is that the company's own drive simply isn't ready."
People prefer to have one box that does everything under their TV.

Which is also possibly dodgy thinking. A standalone player might have better quality construction, smoother eject mechanism, nicer remote, offer SACD playback etc. What it probably won't be doing is giving "deeper blacks" or whatever. A console and a standalone both read zeroes and ones off a shiny disk and then send them to the HDMI socket. That's it.A one box solution is great, but those that are AV purists will still likely go for a separate unit, at the best possible quality. In fact they'll have already had one, before the adoption into a console.
Me too. I bought a Pro and a Samsung UHD player. They sit beside each other.I was a bit pissed that the Pro didn't have a 4k BR player when I got mine (day 1), but the truth is, I don't believe I'd have actually put a 4k disc in it to sit and watch if it did have one. I get my 4k fix a different way.
I'm thinking along these lines too, although sony doesn't currently support HDR10+ so I'm a little torn on this and there's also the issue of HDMI connections/frame rate as reported below:Just goes to show how good the PS3 was though in terms of being an all-in-one option (for me anyway) - was my go to player the entire time I owned one. Always got updated, no issues whatsoever.
I have a Sony 4K player currently but would have no issues going back to the all in one option (I know Xbox do this currently) if it had Atmos/HDR 10 (and Vision) support out of the box.
HDR10+ seems to going nowhere though it remains to be seen if Sony will even support Dolby Vision on the PS5.I'm thinking along these lines too, although sony doesn't currently support HDR10+ so I'm a little torn on this and there's also the issue of HDMI connections/frame rate as reported below:
PlayStation 5 Just Gave Most TV Brands - Including Sony - A Serious Headache
1. Hoping for a February reveal and then hoping E3 2020 will be solely dedicated to PS5 and its launch titles.Hmm I’m going to actually hold out, I think Sony are going to price the PS5 too high and Microsoft will undercut them, plus (1)Sony hasn’t announced a single PS5 launch game, Halo for Xbox Scarlett as we know is a day one release.
(2)I also wonder what the PS5 will look like! If it’s that dev kit erm no...
Can’t wait for Xbox’s event in London next month as I hope they talk about Scarlett and announce some more news.
Think I’ve gone back to being split on which to buy, only want one of them as I don’t have the time for both..
And I’m definitely NOT buying into this whole this dev said the PS5 is more powerful and this dev said the Scarlett is more powerful.. you need to wait for them to be released and fully tested first really.
Yes it does matter what it looks like when it’s in your view all the time... not everyone hides consoles away in a cupboard or stand.1. Hoping for a February reveal and then hoping E3 2020 will be solely dedicated to PS5 and its launch titles.
2. Does it really matter what it looks like? Most people put then in a cabinet under the tele never to be seen again.
They won't turn up at E3, think less and less will turn up each year. They'll hold their own reveal like last time, probably a month or few weeks before and then whoever does bother going to E3 from the games publishers can show off some of the PS5 games they are doing.Yes it does matter what it looks like when it’s in your view all the time... not everyone hides consoles away in a cupboard or stand.
I don’t think we can rely on a February announcement at present because of all these interviews Sony has been doing with Wired. We will see though, they really need to turn up at E3 though to get maximum press coverage I think.
yes they did it at the start of the generation killzone shadowfall was an early example where you could choose to install the single player or multiplayerFrom what I've been reading, the PS5 will allow you to download a portion of a game (Mutiplayer or Single Player) and then download the rest later on.
Has this been done before?
I remember that. Does seem like a good idea but as DF said they would use pretty much the same assets so only difference would be some code and a few textures etc... doubt it’ll save anything at all really.yes they did it at the start of the generation killzone shadowfall was an early example where you could choose to install the single player or multiplayer
