I have yet to see anything from either Sony or Microsoft that feels like a must have. Nintendo switch is still the system to beat for this user who is contemplating another purchase

You will eventually fall under the spell of the marketing machine to upgrade. What will it take? Rocket League in 8k?

Yeah I would say neither of them have shown me I need a console at launch. After that, we’ll see. The only one I really want to play is Halo Infinite but I can do that on my Xbox One.

Isn't that almost always the case? The PS4 has arguably one of the best libraries of any console of all time, but it didn't really get going until 2015 or so.

Sure, but they’re trying to sell you need it right away (especially PS5, since they want to separate generations) and right now, nothing shown is selling me on it.

Do we know what PS4 games are going to be compatible with PS5? That some already beautiful games like RDRII, GOW, LOUII, and Sekiro are playable and upgraded on PS5 is enough for me to get it ASAP.

Also 4K blu ray player. 4K OUATIH is waiting.

Do we know if they are going to look and run better? I assume so.

That is the assumption, though it will likely fall on the developers to release a full blown patch to maximize the upgrade in hardware. I imagine it will be similar to the jump from the base PS4 to the Pro for these older titles. I'm sure they will have announcement of how exactly it will work later this year. It will surely be confusing.

Playstation has not been very clear at all about what’s compatible or will be at launch. They said the most popular games will be but nothing has really been made official. Maybe that gets detailed when we finally get launch dates, etc.

100% agree, in fact I'm already hoping for a 'remastered' version or 'patch' to Ghost of Tsushima on PS5 so it looks more like the 2018 gameplay premier rather than the downgraded (but still gorgeous) version we just got for PS4. I'm also assuming that for all of the above mentioned games, PS5 could probably handle 60FPS if not higher in 4K.

They can take my money, no-brainer Day 1 purchase for me. Though I do agree (if previous gen's are any indication) with all that the next gen games don't really hit their stride on the new hardware until 1-2 years in. Horizon and new Ratchet games are the only ones that have really wowed me thus far from the limited amount of footage we've seen.

Have you actually played Ghost? I've been playing it this week. It is incredibly beautiful.

I did though only briefly so far, and you're right it is beautiful, I'm just being nit-picky.

This story also spurred my dipshit graphics comments 8-)

Next PS5 event is August 6 at 4:00 PM. Rumor: It will focus on 3rd party games.

I assume Call of Duty heavy. This is definitely the longest we’ve gone into the year without a confirmation on the game, although the leaks are out there.
