    Honestly, it's been that way from the beginning in regards to first party, both in quality and quantity, IMO. Microsoft has Halo, Gears of War, Forza and...nothing else is coming to mind atm. They did a good thing with splitting Forza into two series, Horizon is a fun series. Halo is Halo and it does it well.

    But, imo, Sony tries to hit more genres, they don't shoehorn a company into just pumping out sequels, and they take risks with their properties . The team that made Killzone made Horizon. The team that made Uncharted made The Last of Us. From what I've read, the newest God of War is nothing like the button mashing fun of the prequels. Uncharted has a game that doesn't have the protagonist from previous four games in it. These are just a few examples

    Looks like we are FINALLY going to get a release date for Kingdom Hearts 3 next month.

    Beat God of War, what an awesome game.

    Started TLoU, and it has got to be just me but the game is really hard to get into. Does it really pick up soon? I’m about an hour or two into it and am finding it pretty boring. Maybe just not the right game for me..

    Not really. The game itself isn't very good, just depends on how invested you get in the story.

    I think the game was awesome for what it did on the PS3 at the time, but I can’t see myself enjoying it if I was to play through it a second time five years later.

    Yep. I would have joined it ages ago if I lived closer to one.

    Ugh. Bet it won’t be backwards compatible.

    It's pretty much guaranteed at this point that it will still have an x86 processor and use an AMD GPU, so with that it should be backwards capable no issues.

    Here it comes!

    I'm still thinking 2020, myself.

    Of course not. If it was, how could we get Skyrim Remastered Remastered? :laugh:

    Hopefully you’re right. I buy pretty much all of my games digitally now, so if they will stay associated with my PSN account and I get to install them on my PS5 that would be great.

    That’s true. Or the upcoming classic “The LAST Last Of Us.”

    As Solid Snake said though, there shouldn't be any technology barriers this time (assuming they don't come up with some crazy design), so the only reason not to would be money. Which is pretty good reason.

    While the PS2 was originally released in Japan in March 2000, every other PS release has come out in late fall (Nov/Dec). I don't see the PS5 being a Spring release.

    I hope not, I just bought this damn thing LOL.

    And The Last of Us has picked up and I’m really enjoying it. The starting portion with Tess was really slow paced though, just had to make it through that..

    Well if it's backwards compatible the endless remasters might not sell as well, so there's an issue.

    They would just do upscaling for both resolution and graphics with just a patch, similar to the Pro patches. The remasters were more necessary because they couldn't do BC from PS3 to PS4.

    It wouldn't surprise me at all if they made the first version backwards compatible and then removed it for the eventual slim or whatever version, like they did with the PS3. That would put more pressure on people to buy the console right away, when the price is at its highest point.

    I was hoping for “The Second to Last of Us” myself.
