Reading some of those blurbs and the way he talks gives me a headache. I'm assuming it's transcribed from the video, Jesus.

Jokes aside, has this dude ever gotten anything right?

I remember him from the good old 360/PS3 days and he was basically always wrong.

Does he have a decent track record?
It's all nice and all, too nice even, but to me he sounds like an overhyped fan and not much else.

I just want PS1, PS2, and PS3 games ALL to be playable on my PS5, and not through fucking streaming.
This is why they pay Ryan the big daddy bucks, and not you. Making PS1-3 games exclusive to PS Now is the only way I would subscribe. I wouldnt mind having some shitty PS2 games on my digital platinum trophy wall.

another thing
that's supposed to happen is new system settings specifically for ps now that
deals with accessibility graphical options and save states so i'll break
down what that means so when it comes to accessibility options um a lot of uh
machine learning um neural neural networks is being used on playstation's
platform so when it comes to accessibility right you have a lot of people a lot of these access accessibility options they wasn't available in older games you understand what i'm saying so
they're actually trying to utilize certain features and functions to be
able to work with all the games that didn't have them as well as they using
them for games that's right now going forward so i thought that was really
cool to not just have like you know backwards compatibility or
preserving your catalog but also having some sort of some sort of current gameplay implementations to go with the old school uh titles you know i'm saying?

Sir, I do not know what you are saying.

How are people feeling about HHG once more doubling-down on his previous statements regarding BC, PSNow Revamp etc as discussed here?

P.S. Dark Cloud is indeed listed as a PS4 game on PS5 PStore. I literally just checked.


PS1 (later PS2) games on PS5

Backwards Compatability, Graphics Settings ("Remaster Engine" I believe HHG has coined this in the past)

Save States

PSVR2 on PC / AR

GamePass Competitor, Netflix Deal

"Lost Soul Aside" game

Metal Gear Returning

RockStar <3 Sony

This is ALL INSANE! I wish at least half of it were true though.

I can only see PS1 games that already run on PS4/PS5 coming to PS Now. Emulation is hard to get right. Even MS, with their beefier BC approach, only certifies games on a case-by-case basis.

So, FF7, FF8, and FF9 could come to PS Now and be downloadable on PS5 (due to already running on PS4), as well as some others, but I don't see anything else happening.

I wish Hip Hop Gamer wasn't such a clout chasing clown. Dude fumbled an amazing lane of mixing hip hop and gaming. And honestly, gaming media needs more representation and perspectives from people that aren't pale unhealthy socially awkward nerds with no personality.

Is it "Hip Hop Gamer" because it's word diarrhea without any interpunction?

I wish there was a platform that gives me a summary of YouTube videos without me contributing to the algo or the ad revenue.

What did he say about the Netflix deal?

Personally still think it was just a couple of placeholder materials.
It's called Brave browser

Did this guy ever predicted something right or is he just reading Gaf/Reddit and 4chan and gives us the summary ?

The latter.

Although by doing so, he's regurgitating some accurate informations as well, like the Metal Gear stuff for instance, which is an already well known rumor that is actually happening. Sony's also looking at bringing some sort of PS1, PS2 & PS3 BC through PS Now, although I'm afraid that their solution would be streaming-based rather than native PS4/PS5 apps.
