Also, we’ve got the rest of the PS5’s spec sheet.
Will have to measure in the morning but damn it's big and might not fit in my unit.
Not a chance, gow2 will definitely come out on PS4"Additionally, we know that the PS4 community will transition to PS5 at different times, and we’re happy to announce PS4 versions of some of our exclusives. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sackboy A Big Adventure, and Horizon Forbidden West will also launch on PS4. While these three games were designed to take advantage of PS5 and its unique next-gen features like the ultra-high-speed SSD and DualSense controller, PS4 owners will also be able to enjoy these experiences when they launch."
Have to admit I was surprised at Horizon. No mention of GOW2 though. Will that be PS5 only? Can't wait to see that in action
Guess we are just going to have to wait to see what Digital Foundry saw when they compare ps5 to ps4 versions of those games. There HAS to be more to the experience than just some nicer reflections and faster loading surely?if so they will sit on it until the last moment most likely.
@Robohamster - totally I posted that months ago, I am pleased its borne out but annoyed the information was sat on since it was shown, What we think the devs turned around last week and said, you know what , we could actually get this working on a PS4 ! Call Japan now !
Sorry this reads like a rant but this is to me the definition of treating your customers in a shady way, what is going on in Sony at the moment ? Still, game will hopefully be different enough from the last one to justify the £50 price tag.
I seriously doubt it. We have seen for generations and it has been said by many developers that games that have to release on older consoles are held back. The only difference will be glitter. The SSD, which has been SONY's big sell - will just load the levels a bit faster. None of the design will be based on what this can actually do to change how we play. Looks like we will have to wait a long time to see anything in this space and personally I think we are looking at a small handful of games that even go there.Guess we are just going to have to wait to see what Digital Foundry saw when they compare ps5 to ps4 versions of those games.

Totally agree. I'm always sucked in by the hype, but genuinely have no 'fear of missing out' this time around. Perfectly content to wait. I think for me too, the mid-generation console updates have also dented the jump from this gen to the next. If they hadn't come along the upgrade would be more pronounced. It's all about the games though and neither PS5 or Series X have much I can't play already.You pay a premium to get a console at launch. Usually worth it IMHO but it's all a bit meh this time round.
I agree, and then there is the retailer chaos, eg, games “my account” has been down since their preorders seemed to go live 8 hrs early...and is still Up/down...PS5 will sell by the bucketload but Sony aren’t handling this launch as smoothly as I’d hope. Mixed /poor messaging on a number of things, pre-order chaos in the US...
I'm very tempted to go down the PC route, some of the PC game footage I've seen recently has been absolutely stunning, even something like shadow of the tomb raider it looked photo realistic in places. Really haven't got a clue though how easy it is to use a gaming PC on a big TV in the lounge , there's no way I'm using a keyboard and mouse on my lap on the sofa put it that way. The idea of building my own gaming PC does appeal though especially with gamepass on PC in the equation...been out of it so long though I haven't got a clue what I'd need these daysThink I will wait for a Black version, nothing I want to play yet. Have a 3080 to order today anyway.
I think they already said there would be a free adapter.As long as I can play Fall a Guys then that’s all that’s important
Seriously though they need to announce how VR will work and an adapter ASAP. Loads won’t be able to replace their PS4s if there is no way to plug their VR kit in.
