    The only reason I'm torn is I have 2 PS4s one on 6.72 obviously I'm keeping another on 7.51 with a 1.5 TB. I can get a few hundred dollars for this on Ebay I'm sure. It helps with the cost a lot.

    But if I wait a year or two I won't get this much for the PS4.

    Sell the one with the newer firmware, I guess?

    Xbox gamepass is a killer, 100 games for like twenty bucks a month in an age were games are gonna cost 70?

    Even paying it for two years and with price increases is still a very good deal.

    Heck I would go for it if I had a decent Internet connection and didn't have to do house repairs.

    That's what I mean sell the one with the newer firmware get a couple hundred bucks get a PS5 for $300 something and it will have b/c with those games on the PS4. Kind of a hard deal to pass up since I know I will buy one eventually.

    Did you not read when I said Xbox? The PS5 doesn't have the gamepass deal.

    No I ignored that. I was responding to you saying "sell the one on the newer firmware" I don't care about Xbox Game Pass.

    Consoles do break down. For that reason i have multiple of the same console. And i continually learn how to service them.

    PC gaming can also be a pain in the ass also. when the next os comes out you always have games that refuse to work. I hated the fact that all the dos games were unplayable when windows xp came out. Now we do have virtual machines and emulators like dos box but, the games still never worked as good as they did on native dos running on a processor with a speed they were designed for. Thankfully all the rts games i like to play work on windows xp. and the ones that need the IPX network protocol for multiplayer lan mode work also since windows xp has that feature.

    It's worth noting that the Xbox BC team is coming back after the X|S launch. So they'll be adding new OG and 360 games to the BC list again. (Even on XB1.) They'll also make patches to increase lods, framerate, and resolution for older titles. Phil already confirmed this. They only took a break in the first place to ensure everything was still working properly on X|S.

    that only happened once, as opposed to pretty much every every gen like consoles (with exceptions like wii, ps2, 360, etc), though i will admit some games do break every so often (fallout 3 for example) even then, there are patches in those cases

    People are complaining that PS5 is not backwards compatible with PS1 discs, which is stupid to complain about now imo. Also, read the title of the thread. Your post is completely irrelevant to the topic at hand.

    Aren't we discussing backwards compatibility?!

    Quoted from link : "When we say backwards compatibility, it does not mean that PS5 will support games from PS3, PS2 or earlier."

    My link has everything to do with the op's topic.

    Ps3 i can understand but there is no reason why the ps5 shouldn't be able to use/play ps1 and ps2 disc/games. Especially ps1 games.

    Man, SONY denies its customers the ability to play PS1, PS2 or PS3 games on PS5 while Microsoft is going all-out with the Xbox Series X featuring all of the generations.

    To add to that, they run amazingly!



    This was actually pretty neat to watch.

    Microsoft has the deal of Game Pass Ultimate that bundles Xbox LIVE and Game Pass as one, so you pay one sub for both. Oh, and the EA Play has (or will) merged with Game Pass.

    Meanwhile, users on PS5 will have to pay for three subs if they want all that (PS Plus, Now, EA Play). I hate to say it, but Microsoft is more consumer-friendly than SONY is.

    It does sound like Xbox might have won this round sadly.

    PS5 still has the exclusives going for it, but aside that, Xbox does it better by the looks of it.

    I agree. Playstation exclusives is the only reason why I buy Sony. The Microsoft stuff I can get with 4k and raytracing on my gaming PC. It would have helped Sony sell if they would have made backwards compatibility with all previous units. Oh well... I'm still buying one.

    Yeah the only problem is microsoft doesn't have modern day exclusives that people are interested in at the moment. They do everything else right outside of that but some people don't want to give credit where credit is due.
