    The playstation now that I heard almost no one ever talk about ever since it came out despite sony promoting it like it's the main gimmick since playstation tv was announced... and later discontinued?

    What part of this is popular? Ever since I known it to exist, i hear no one on this forum or anywhere else ever talk about it at all.

    I'm just saying that it's not like it would hurt them to make the games they have on playstation now playable by just owning a retail disc of the ps3 game. Of course is nothing as good as the xbox one playing older games but I guess you are all right that sony wasn't planning anything. :ninja:

    It took PS4 five years to get to 6.0, while the Switch is already there after a year and a half. In 5 years the Switch will be at 25.0

    This is clearly an update month. WiiU got an update, Vita got an update, Switch got an update, and PS4 got and update.... I think XboxOne got an update, but I wouldn't know since mine hasn't powered on in 3 years

    Would be great to see PS1 (and maybe PS3) games/remasters on PS4.

    We already have PS2 and partial PSP :)

    I hear some people talk about it, but it'd be maybe an interesting pool to make and see how popular it may actually be.

    Either, Sony is Sony, it'll remove features from your console or cut down on how.many consoles you can own with the same account, if it thinks it'll milk the market some extra cash.

    Well that says little, could be relative how they interpret semantic versioning or how they join newer features into the console. Though the Switch did came out with little functionality and seems to have much to increment.

    Because secretly it says "5.55 exploit available soon, you can now play "backups" that contain update files up to 5.55"

    As I recall, the XBox One was tested to see what it'd take to have XBox 360 games run on the system and they made sure to keep some texture formats in the GPU and some part of the audio engine to drastically reduce the system requirements for emulation. Without those changes, it sounds like that support would have been subpar at best and possibly non-existent for a lot of games. I presume Sony could have possibly did something similar with the PS4 (or their Pro version), but I've no idea how viable that would have actually been without substantial hardware inclusion.

    Well, technically Gateway can still be used on 3DS too for it's .3DS file reading but that doesn't mean anyone recommends using it either.

    Yeah we'll see if Rez Infinite's BS mode still crashes this unstable pile of silicon.
