Cross Gen Gaming between PS5 and PS4
Good morning gamers and welcome back and for you new people I hope you enjoy the content. Nice weekend was had but now we are back with the gaming news you deserve. Today we get the word about the PS5 yet again which has been a hot new topic for a while now. Keep in mind folks developers have the dev kits which are just PC’s, but we are coming close to a release date.
PS5 can play with PS4 no problem!
I believe this was a conversation back when I was working at a particular game store with the PS3 and PS4 having the same games, but you could not play with someone who is on the PS3 if you have a PS4 and vice versa. It was weird since a lot of games were released on both consoles. This time Sony is stating that they will have the crossplay between the two consoles this time around. We already got the word about backwards compatibility features and a video showcasing how fast the loading will be on the PS5 vs. the PS4.
We all know that Sony is committed to keeping their systems alive far longer than the 5-year life span. This is good and can help gamers plan their finances in picking up a PS5 later on instead of a Day One system. However, this might be the second time I grab a system on Day One and I am still on the fence on how much they can improve. After seeing that loading time improvement it has me thinking about games like Anthem with horrible loading times and GTA at times.
This is all coming from an investors meeting and John Kodera, Sony Vice President is keen on crossplay between consoles. This is good and there are many people that do not want to give up their systems even if it is a small majority. But what say you on this topic? Are you excited about this news? Will you be trading in your system for a new PS5? Keep in mind it might not be called that, but share your thoughts below.
My final thought
I say bring it on now because a few years back when some people were asking for a new system but could not give a reason on why they need a new one. I feel it is a right time now for a next gen console, even though during this current system era there has been an upgrade already with the Pro. So if you are considering getting a PS4 Pro this late in the game, I would say wait as long as you can. – Beast Out –
