    Awesome I can save up to buy the ps5 pro if that's what they will call it while still play without being left out feeling.

      Crossgen will be harmful competitively

        Sony is just better. I still like Microsoft because competition is good and doesn't allow Sony to get too cocky. But I am never satisfied with what Microsoft produces. Playstation is much more fun!

          Aw yeah!! If it has backwards compatibility, I'll buy. One thing that kept me from buying the PS4 at launch was being broke. The other thing was not really having anything I wanted to play yet. If I can just update the system and still play my old games on it, then PERFECT. It's one of the things that most likely keeps the PC as the master race.

              The reverse effect is that it will cause many to stick with the PS4 for a while, because they know they can play with their friends on the PS5.

                I was going to get me a PS5 anyway but I was really interested in wanting to play with both of my sons if I get a PS5 and they have PS4s so I really love the idea of cross gen play

                  I would definitely buy the next gen consoles quicker if that was possible

                    Honestly I'm kind of Bummed we never got Backwards Compatibility on the PS4 and if you could play your PS4 games on the PS5 that would be amazing.

                          So Sony is doing what the Xbox one did with the 360

                              This is a step in the right direction. Though it should've been done a long, long time ago.

                                  I'm getting a PS5 regardless but I think this move is pretty inclusive to PS gamers. It can serve both those audiences effectively.

                                    Personally I’m just a single player guy, so it wouldn’t affect me that much. But I think it’s a great idea and don’t see anything wrong with Sony going forward with this idea.

                                      I'm going to be one of those people who's going to wait for a PS5 Pro to come out. It'll only be two or three years before that happens after its initial launch. I got PS4 Pro and I've been more or less happy with it ever since.

                                        Let’s say you are playing on a ps5 with that super fast loading time and against you some ps4 players with a slow loading time, I think this would be a problem

                                            Sony: "We'll enable cross gen play"
                                            Everyone else: "What about cross platform"
                                            Sony: "Its too hard"
                                            After all the stories of Sony's underhanded tactics and hobbling games because of their cross play qualities screw the PS5. I'll stick with companies that are willing to work together and not be dick's. Sony is actually convincing me to get an Xbox.

                                                    I'm pretty sure Xbox has been doing this for years 🤔.. But it's still good news none the less

                                                      Definitely. Knowing I'll still be able to play with mates on ps4 makes buying a PS5 day one a definite buy.

                                                          I'm glad to see someone is taking more information and aspiration form Microsoft and Nintendo keep up Sony I want another Sony Bravia TV but this time so the PS3 booting how many PS4 built-in that will be able to save

                                                            Biggest question here is
                                                            If the next gen players get the cometative advantage with better machine , it’s not fair or fun for those ps4 players trying to be ninja
                                                            After all ssd and HDD are gonna have massive load time difference alone before we even talk about processors

                                                            I’d love for it to happen but it must be fair

The chipset was removed in later PS3 models (even before the slim ones) because "nobody really cares about backcompat". (Actually, it was to reduce cost and increase profit margins.) Microsoft said nobody cared about backcompat between the original Xbox and the 360. (Actually, it was impractical to emulate the original Xbox on 360 hardware.) Nintendo had GameCube backcompat on the Wii (incorporating a GC chipset in the new hardware), and Wii backcompat on the Wii U. So, now that the next gen hardware for Sony and Microsoft will essentially be just higher-spec'ed versions of their current architectures, and backcompat is eminently practical, they're free to admit the benefits of the feature, and to acknowledge that, yes indeed, their customers really do want it. It's been a long time coming, but better late than never.
