    Eh, I've still got enough of a PS3 and PS4 backlog that I probably won't start caring about the 5 until at least the "Slim" revision and subsequent price cut. Especially since thus far, SquareEnix have said that FFVII:Remake will continue to release on the PS4.

    Same but I'm scared to touch Skyrim or Oblivion because they'll both take forever to beat and ruin my chance to play other PS2-4 titles.

    If a remastered or new Demons Souls with day 1 MP is a launch title, hell yes.

    Not PS5 specifically, but looking forward to new gen in general so developers can start going nuts again without having to worry about running on 7 year old potatoes.

    Looking forward to seeing what the launch offerings are. If PS5 has *full* PS4 BC, then that'll be nice.

    I think we already know Scarlett's BC capabilities. (Same as X1)

    I read the Game Informer article Thursday afternoon and the PS5 sounds like it's gonna be cool. I just really hope my 2yr old 4k tv isn't out of date for the games coming out for it and console connectors. Plus,.....I really hope the games are going to be still $59.99 and the PS5 console doesn't sell for more than $400. Since to me that is a whole lot better than what i paid for my PS3 60gig version. Which was huge $600 plus tax. Thanks for dvd trade in money that time from GameStop i was able to offset that price a little but still miss my Dukes of Hazard dvds.

    I'm expecting highish price at launch and a much longer then usual cross gen period this time round. The hardware they are talking about isn't console cheap at the moment and nobody will want to leave the massive current gen install base behind in a rush, especially when running the same games across both gens shouldn't be much harder then current gen base and pro in most cases if they've done a competent job designing the new systems.

    For those Graphic Savvy, the best takeaway will be Raytracing and 3D audio.

    Bigger GPU and switch from HDD to SDD will be a big jump in performance. AMD though, euw.

    On the fly raytracing is awesome though, PC video cards have had that for a bit now.

    Been looking to scoop up an RTX 2080 here soon .Games look phenomenal.
