Now that the PlayStation 5 console design and a ton of exclusive games were announced in today's stream. I think it's fitting for the PS5 to have it's own dedicated discussion thread. Will update with PSNs of those with a PS5 when that day arrives.

What'd you guys think of the event?

The new Ratchet looks amazing!
Project Athia looks cool.
3D Platforming Sackboy a big adventure was a cool surprise!
Kena Bridge of Spirits looks like a cool open world game, similar to horizon
Ghostwire is a cool FPS, giving me slight Bioshock vigor vibes
Astro's Playroom looks like another 3D platformer with VR (presumably)
Deathloop a cool bethesda FPS
Village looks like cool first person horror
Horizon 2 now known as Horizon: Forbidden West is finally unveiled and looks beautiful!

I think PS3s were going for like $2k on ebay at launch and PS4s like $1200.

Did I miss any details about improvements to PS4 games running on the PS5? Besides the SSD likely helping load times.

They're really not said anything about BC since Cerney said that they're testing some games to be playable for PS5.

some framerate improvements. It's the same architecture mostly, so it's sort of like running the same PC game on another machine with better graphics card, CPU, etc.

They expect most PS4 games to be automatically playable for the most part, but they are testing the PS4 Top 100 to ensure complete compatibility for those titles at least.

BC is actually a really complicated thing to implement for a number of reasons so its hard to just do in a wide scale. I listened to an interview with Bill Stillwell (head of Xbox BC team), and he said that any game that runs any different than it did on the original hardware requires for them to go and get permission to do whatever it is that is being improved from the original rights holders. There are also instances to where certain gameplay elements are tied to frame rate so they can't just improve the frames without breaking the game so that has to be tested and figured out as well. Any bugs that were in the game also can't be touched and have to be reproduced on a 1:1 scale. In some games they had to ensure that bugs happened at the exact same rate that they did in the original game even if that meant that a bug only happened at a 2% rate. Another tricky part is that when they go to the devs for permission to make their games BC they would sometimes say no unless they received payment for it which holds things up considerably. Copy right is another issue as some parts of various game's rights were literally written on restaurant napkins. MS's BC team has a few hundred programmers working full time to solve these things, so its not cheap.

I've been reloading my PS5 search today and they're adding games that I've not seen before.

There was a console link but it got removed and was never available. I bet it's gonna be up by 2am CST (when Amazon typically ends their day and refreshes) but maybe sooner.

That PS5 showcase was solid. Demons Souls, Spidey Miles and Sackboy leading the charge for 1st party launch titles too. Ryan confirming 99% of all PS4 titles will be BC on PS5. PS Plus including full 1st party classics to play included at no additional charge. Not too shabby. I think I am going to still wait to get any next gen consoles if my will is strong enough, but it is going to be a mighty exciting next gen indeed. 👍

So it turns out I got really lucky with BestBuy, I went there as soon as I got the email but I checked a few other places first then went back. The site was smooth. I went back and pre-ordered. Checked EB and that site was hammered, even Walmart is not doing well it at least not right now and BestBuy is now sold out.

I may try to get in on a Amazon Pre-Order BestBuy says I will get it on November 17th.... I will see if Amazon is better if so I will cancel if not it's 5 days but at least I still have it.

They didn't do that when I got my PS4 so I doubt they would now... plus people collect the boxes sometimes so highly unlikely.

Walmart is still tweeting this to people. They don't say what time zone, just "midnight". Assuming they mean Eastern, that gives you around 10 minutes to get ready.

They said the same thing about Death Stranding and that turned out to be false. I'm guessing they don't want people to think its coming to PC and other platforms (probably PS4) to generate PS5 preorder sales then once those ship they'll release it the other intended platforms. If they said that every one of their launch titles are PS4 and PC, then how many PS4 owners would upgrade? Its purely marketing smoke and mirrors.

Until they outright come and out and say that it will not come to PC or any other console at any point in the future in any way, shape, or form then I think theres reason to be skeptical.

The real issue is how crapty they are made for the price. I've gone through five fudging PS4 controllers because the sticks and the triggers are crap. I would then say I only have one xbox controller. But I also play that system far less overall, so it gets way less wear and tear. However the quality of that controller is much higher as well. So I hope the DS5 is not as a crap product as the DS4 is.

Archer, do you mean the rubber peeling off? I have had 4 controllers and only one with issues. Another though (red left thumb stick) glitched and seemed to be an issue with that entire set of Red controllers worldwide.

It would be nice if they sold removable tips to put on the analogs.

My Day One edition X1 controller still works just as good as the day I got it. The only issue with one of their controllers I've had an issue with (out of the 5 I have) is the Forza special edition where some of the grip on the back came unglued. Other than that, the sticks and triggers still work perfectly.

I can't believe no less than 13 people looked at this listing and said "Yeah, seems legit". That's two months they get to run off with the money before people are like "Hey, where's my overnight shipping? I'm starting to think this wasn't on the up and up!" Which is, btw, beyond eBay's guarantee window.

Yeah on the sticks, the rubber wearing off. Also my kids somehow broke an entire left stick on one. Just snapped it in half. They also had issues with triggers falling out of the controllers. And thinking about it, my personal controller only had issues with the rubber wearing off. And I ended up putting stick pads on mine and it was fine.

So actually, since this new console will be just mine (kids don't care about console gaming really at all any more now that they are almost out of high school), I probably wont have any issues. My issues with them were most likely 95% the kids and not the controllers themselves, lol.

Once Demon Souls or Ratchet comes out, then I'll be interested. But I'm guessing those are summer 2021 at the earliest right? I have no plans for either next gen console so I'm not upset about potentially "missing" anything.

Oh nice. Won't be paying scalper prices though. If it comes up for pre-order then I'll think about it. Still not super excited to spend $500 for a launch console. Man I gotta sell a whole bunch of my crap before I feel like jumping in to a purchase like that.

Personally, I stopped paying Souls games a few years ago because they play too much the same for my tastes. The gameplay is incredibly slow and you die over and over again until you finally get good enough to get past certain parts. Its not appealing to me at all any longer even though I did enjoy DS1 back in the day but I can't bring myself to play other one. It kind of drags out 10 hours worth of content into 100 because of the "get gud" mechanics. Tons of fans of the genre though.
