does anyone know if you buy a physical ps5 game, can it be played on a ps4? 

 

i plan to give my son my ps4, so that would be a big factor for me. 

Why would a PS5 game work on a PS4?

Happy with this the hardware and the pricing, but there is little for me in the way of software right out of the gate. I really hope Deamon's Souls is at least launch window if not the day of launch.

Maybe not, but I really like they way it looks. It doesn't look bad at all, just maybe not what people are expecting from next gen. It really looks like a sequel to FFXIV and that is great. You could also say the art is similar to 12 which is also good.

God Of War 2 announcement was the coolest part about this for me. RE8 looks great yeah but the developer video thing they put out was a lot more interesting than this and at least showed a little bit of gameplay. 

 

As a Souls fanboy, I'll be honest and say I'm not into the Demon's Souls remake. It looks really impressive graphically but from what I've seen here, the gameplay itself and especially the sound design was really weird. Granted, I've played the game for hundreds of hours and mostly with headphones so it's probably nitpicky to most, but it 'feels' very different based on what they've shown so far, not really into it.

i thought some of these new games (COD for exmaple) are offering a nex-gen version but playable on PS4 as well. did i misunderstand that?

$100 seems like a big difference. If the price delta between retail and digital games remains what it is now, I'd certainly make that difference up.

I want the disc drive solely for blu rays. I was shocked by the price of standalone 4k blu ray players when I checked a few weeks ago. Like $170+. That $100 difference isn't so bad in that context.

Yes, but to be fair, I don't think anybody really understood it.

I'll probably wait until Summer anyway... the Harry Potter game is supposedly multiplat, and FFXVI has a pretty good chance of being a timed exclusive, and Demon's Souls isn't my thing. The only two games I'd be looking forward to are GoW2 and Ratchet and Clank, and R&C doesn't exactly make me want to run out and pick up a system.

 

By the time I get one, Miles Morales and R&C will probably already have a price drop.

I think if you bought the PS5 version they toss in the PS4 version as well... I think. Same with Xbox.

Then you're technically buying a PS4 game thatll upgrade to a PS5 game.  

 

Xbox Smart Delivery I think let's u use whatever disk.  I think Sony is going to have seperate SKUs so you'd prob need to have the PS4 Sku to work in the PS4 and PS5.

Hmmmm Final Fantasy meets Game of Thrones, eh? Those voices DO NOT fit those faces :lol:

 

I need a new Dragon Age.

 

 

I don't know how to feel about the action. But then, I haven't played the FF7 remake yet. I guess it works? Part of me kinda just wishes they'd go back to making old school rpg's.

No.. CoD isn't using Smart Delivery. It's the same bullshit... if you buy the XBO version, you can play it on the Series X and it'll work due to back compat. But it won't be the Series X version. If you buy the series X version, you get the XBO version as well... it's the same deal with PS.

I played a demo of FF 7 and the combat was... okay? Maybe it gets better the further you get into the game but this weird Hybrid of active time battle and real time combat didn't quite work for me.

I'm a little confused that the Miles Spidey game is coming to the PS4.  I thought they had said they were doing things in the game using the new hard drive that would not be possible on the previous gen.

It actually looked very Devil May Cry-ish to me.. FFXVI i mean.

I haven't played a new FF game since like FF9 and recently FF7R demo so for a while I thought this was some new medieval fantasy IP based on Devil May Cry combat actually.
