The only exciting things about PS5 for me is its controller and software 3D audio system that even works on stereo headphones.

So is this thing bc with PS4 or what? I know they've danced around by saying that it'll be bc on the majority of titles but I don't want a 360 situation on me where the games I wanna play don't actually work on it

So any idea what they're not gonna let me keep so they can sell it again as a PS5 version?

You can keep everything but if some game does not work like on PS4, then you cannot sue them for false advertisement. And I would not expect remasters of PS4 games. Rather updates with new features.

Some of the publishers are offering free patches that take advantage of the ps5 power but some of them are releasing a new version and selling them like GTA V. I think there's a boost mode so all PS4 games should benefit from higher fps whether the developer releases new patches or not.

I shall probably wait for the new Spider-man. I'm definitely intending on getting this and the next-Box, just a matter of the when. Definitely not on launch, but Spider-man for PS, Halo for Xbox.

Why don't you just play Halo on PC instead?

Most of the PS5 'exclusives' are being released on PS4 or PC as well. As of right now I think there's only Ratchet & Clank and God of War Ragnarok that are actually PS5 exclusive (and GoWR hasn't been confirmed, though it's extremely likely).

I know about it. Just letting Corporal Hicks know that he does not need to get PS5 yet if he has PS4. Unless he wants all bells and whistles i.e. better frame rate, higher resolution, better textures, ray tracing effects, etc. The same with Halo and Xbox Series S/X.

It's a fair question. I have been playing MCC on the PC, but then I switched back to the Xbox and honestly, I just like playing it downstairs on the big ass TV with an Xbox controller in my hands. Just feels right playing it on the actual console. Just a mental thing.

Indeed. Thanks for the reminder. I likely will get Miles on the PS4, but Spidey 2 will be further down the line and I'm hoping we'll be seeing a price fall or special edition consoles by then.
