Backwards compatability clarity is all i want to know honestly.
They are as clear as they were ever going to get. They playtested the top 100 PS4 games and they work. Every other PS4 game "should" work, but they are not going to guarantee all of them.

That's how BC had always been like since the dawn of time. Literally nothing ever, offer 100% compatibility. And the financial costs to come close to that is unreasonable. PS5 would run PS4 games about as well as anyone expect it to run. No more and no less.

You would only expect more than that, if you never experienced Backwards compatibility with any other console before.

EDIT: Unless you were expecting PS3 emulation? Well, if they could get it to work it would be nice. But i don't expect it.

Internally delayed, yet again... For whatever reasons. I asked, about 2 weeks ago, but my friend knows nothing.
My guess is either optimization hell (frame pacing + covid) or Bamco sitting on it waiting for the most profitable moment to release it.
I wouldn't expect news at a Sony event (unless the marketing deal with MS expired and Sony used some of those 750m to steal the renewal from MS, but I doubt it, Sony doesn't seem interested in marketing deals with no exclusive content, temporary or not.)

10 hours out and 1000+ people are waiting on the stream to start?

We are hours away from two scenarios.

Either PS5 fans crying or Xbox fans crying. Either way, It's going to be entertaining.
You forget the third possibility: both crowing that it was the best/worst showing ever, both utterly convinced the enemy is either lying to themselves or blind.

EDIT: I just want to see the next gen pretties and feel the hype. Alas, it'll be 5am here and I have to work tomorrow. >=(

I was almost going to say I hope we see Rocksteadys new game. Totally forgetting all the Batman games were just revealed a few weeks ago. They really bombed the excitement for that

Maybe we will see gameplay though

They didn't show anything worthwhile during their 2 hour show that was watched by millions online, why do you think they will suddenly turn tables during this 40 min presentation?

Some people never learn.

Sony, this is your chance to convince me to get a PS5 instead of Xbox.

they only got 2 months left so they need to start talking. an exact release date and price would be nice.

Maybe if you keep saying it over and over again somebody will agree with you

Not likely, but keep trying

Pretty impressive that essentially nothing has leaked this time around
Covid probably accidentally raised security. Everyone is only ever where they need to be, everyone else stays home. And gathering of people are at a minimum. Chinese Factories are not going to let people come and go as they please either, you had to go through temp checks and there are staff maximum quotas per building.

I genuinely believe Xbox is leaking like a sieve because Xbox wanted it that way. Pity it didn't work out for them.

Either they're just terrible at keeping things quiet or it was intentional. The optimist in me wants to believe it's the former, the cynic in me thinks they had nothing worth talking about game-wise and decided it would look weird to have another event just for the price so they just leaked it instead.
