Sounds great in every respect, especially how its backwards compatible with ps4 games.

What if it was backwards compatible with every ps1, ps2 and ps3 game as well? That would be sick.

Microsoft will need to seriously step up their game, if they don't wanna get brutally outmatched in sales like they were with the Xbox One.

I don't mean as far as murdering Splinter, but think of the possibilities if censors were not an issue.
Shredder and Krang combined had the biggest arsenal of any villains in all of the cartoons.

I swear I remember reading articles a year ago or so that the PS5 was set to be backwards compatible with PS1-PS4... but now I can't find them.

Atleast for ps1 and ps2, there will be zero issues since those consoles are so old that most home computers can emulate their games perfectly nowadays.

The real issue will be emulating ps3 games straight out of the disc, something the ps4 couldn't do because of the ps3 games running on complicated architecture.

I just wish they'd be backwards-compatible AND region-free. Lots of Japanese PS1 and PS2 games I want to get but modded systems are expensive.

Boring console name if it just will continue like that, Playstation 5, Playstation 6 and so on.

wtf is wrong with that? It's the first console where you always know exactly what generation of the system you're on.

On one hand, it is fun to see what Nintendo comes up with, and I'd geek out at a "Playstation Mega" or something, as corny as it sounds.

But I think the numbered path they've taken is solid. Clean, classy, and clear. Much better than the mess Microsoft ended up in with the confusing X-Box names.

We're not that far away from the zombifying PS9!

Wouldn't the theoretical release of PS9 be closer to 2048 than 2078?

The backwards compatibility thing would be huge for me. But after what they pulled with the PS3, I don't trust Sony anymore to maintain it on the PS5. And honestly, I don't do so much gaming at all anymore. But if I could easily throw in an old game I loved for an hour or so, I'd be much more inclined to get into a modern game here or there.

I think the companies wanted to market their new systems as 10-year generations at the front end. For the PS2, that worked out about right.

The Sega CD, on the other hand...
