    Honestly even though how shitty this is and how it sucks for us customers. I still think sony is going to win this next generation because more people are going to stick with what they know and that is going to be Sony. Personally I think Microsoft messed up with the Series S. I get it is supposed to be cheaper but come on man! 1440p displays? Not many people are going to be playing this on their monitors.

    Majority of the world still uses 1080p TV but 4K is on the rise the last year with prices dramatically dropping so they will go after the casual gamer but besides that outside of the few exclusives Xbox is the clear better deal with Ultimate+EA+XCloud+Backwards Compatibility that also improves games by adding Ray Tracing effect and AI to improve Graphics is next level $hit :yayone: sway the market and the games will follow ;)

    Not trying to start a console war but honestly the Series-X is the better system. However Sony will have the edge with exclusive content that is about it. I'm a Xbox and PS4 Owner for the PS5 I will get one but super late when all the games become dirt cheap. I'm going to probally keep my PS4 Just incase a new mod comes out for it. My XboxOne S I am going to trade it in for the Series-X if i get a good deal from gamestop.

    You can always buy a new one. Don't see the big deal about buying used.

    Is not 100% compatible with PS2 games and some PS1 games have problems being emulated on the PS3.

    There is also the fact that you can forget about playing online with PS3 games as many of their dedicated servers are gone.

    You can't buy a new backwards compatible PS3 if Sony no longer makes them. Plus I'm not willing to buy from a scalper either cos I'd curse them out

    Not to be rude but did you even read what I said. I'm not talking about compatibility I'm talking about not wanting to buy a used system.

    Oh, I get ya. You could buy a hacked PS3 Slim or get it hacked? I always wanted that, but never found anyone nearby to do it.

    This year has been an utter mess and what was cheap has increased in price, and so on.

    Take a look here:
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/hackable-ps3-models-and-information.538514/

    Previously unhackable PS3s can now be hacked but not by a permanent hack last I checked.

    My point is that the old fat PS3 that could run PS2 games is not that great to start with. Not to.mention you need an external HD since the one that came with it was quite small.

    You can get a chipped PS2 and a hackable PS3 instead. PS2s are not that expensive and a few new workarounds to hack them without chip have been discovered depending on the model, but you do need a memory card to make it stick.

    It would be way more beneficial for me if Sony would just add backwards compatibility to the PS5. Why buy or keep older systems when you can have everything on one system & get more functionality out of one system. In any case now that I know the route that Sony are taking its clear the Microsoft & Nintendo have won my money. I have no intentions of buying an older system just to take up space in my room

    At least with Slim PS3s PS2 games never have worked from an external. Not sure if it's the same with the original PS3s or not. Pretty sure you would need to upgrade the internal.

    Such an ugly console. Mind you it will blend in nicely to many chavvy living rooms, the 2-tone design matching the 2-tone DFS sofas of said households.

    We already have PS3 emulation on PC, where ~60% of titles are playable and more being added every day, and that's dev'd by a few randos on the internet. \

    With Sony's knowledge and documentation PS3 emulation would be an absolute breeze on the PS5, especially when the CPU being used isn't utter dogshit like the PS4's. There's absolutely nothing stopping Sony from doing PS3 emulation.

    They don't own 100% the codecs used in standard movie discs though, that's why most developer consoles don't play movies (and can't load the fake dvd player kelf to use actual DVD-Video or ESR discs)

    You may be thinking of the first Xbox where the official dvd player software is stored inside the optional remote receiver?

    the slims as silent gunner said can read ps2 and psx isos just rip your disc on the PC with some tools make an iso then ftp them to the slim ps3 i recommend an older cfw or cex2dex as the cobra ps2 emu is far superior than netemu used by sony for ps2 classics I got my cech 210x (a 120GB) at a b&M store for $100 though those are getting more scarce as time goes on if you want cfw just steer clear of chech 3000 slims and your mileage may vary with a 2500 2000's and 2100 are a safe bet for slims :yayone:

    Xbox Series X is far uglier. It's just a black big-ish box.

    Xbox Series S has the best design compared to PS5 and Xbox X.

    I honestly don't think that people are reading what I said. I'm NOT trying to buy a PS2 I said that it would be nice if I could use my PS1,PS2 & PS3 games on the PS5. I'm NOT interested in buying a old PS3 READ what I'm saying. I'm buying the Xbox Series X cos I hate Sony's idiotic decisions if I buy a PS5 its only for Little Big Planet & Ratchet and Clank.
