    It's been interesting to see people talk about buying a series X to play the 3rd party games due to an assumed performance boost and a few extra pixels - I would have thought the whole user experience needs to be taken into account

    Utterly baffling to buy a new console just to play old games at a bit better resolution. Games companies have realised that people are willing to pay a lot of money for lazy "remasters" of old games and are churning them out at the moment. I blame the Switch for this mainly. The number of lazy ports/re-releases at full price is pathetic.

    I think for me it's more that I trust Xbox with a digital library than Sony. I'm literally starting from scratch again moving from PC and I have more confidence that these games I buy will be playable on future Xboxes. Who knows what will happen with PS6.

    It's not really that far fetched. Each time I buy a new GPU for my PC I put older games back on to see how much better they run and often enjoy revisiting older games.

    Looking forward to playing GOW this time all the way through and not have a jet engine in my living room PS4 Pro - i heard they fixed that for free but i sold mine anyway. Oddly it was only that game that really pushed it. Also i skipped LOU2 just so i could play it on PS5 so hopefully naughty dog do something special and update it somehow. Doubtful but i can hope.

    It's what I do, currently playing halo mcc for the umpteenth time but now at [email protected] and it's devine. Probably do the GTA5 campaign again soon.

    So from reviews it seems apparent that new Watchdogs is painfully average (not that I expected anything else) I really hope AC:V has more going for it.

    Depends what reviews you read. Its reviewed as one of the best watch dogs thus far. Going to keep an eye on it though but really can't expect anything groundbreaking from games these days. Same goes for AC:V from the gameplay trailers i've seen it just looks like a reskin which would be just like Ubisoft. Will wait for sales to pick that up. Watch Dogs i will get for PC for those RTX effects i probably won't even notice :D

    Kids are asking for a new console so think I'll advise they go for a PS5, used to have a PS4 so already have a few digital only games that can start them off.

    I've had an XBox more recently, but we've got Gamepass on the PC so I think a new Series X might be a waste.

    Best of an average bunch though. I've not seen one that really praises it that highly. The recruitment system seems cool but I agree with the reviews that London just seems a bland setting the way they have made it. I only really take note of ACG review and I skim the main ones. No doubt I'll get it on a sale for sure, I quite enjoyed the first but cant recall anything about it other than the guy was called Aiden.
    I agree about reskin too on AC but this is what Ubisoft do, I think I'll jsut enjoy the setting more than Egypt or Greece.

    I imagine more boroughs of London coming in a DLC :D :D

    Agree i can't see anything remarkable in it. Fetch this and go here quests are mostly what these type of games are about these days with a back story thrown in somewhere along the lines. Really nothing new coming in terms of ideas for gameplay. Doubt we will see any real thought in these types of games really. Devs get lazy when they know it will likely sell anyway.

    I don't mind playing old games again, I don't like the fact that there seems to be these remakes coming out at a ridiculous rate at what seems like the expense of new IP. Other consoles aren't so bar for it but the Switch just takes the pee. Hes a 15 year old game with the same graphics, a few old DLC packs, please pay £40+ for it.

    Although I'm Xbox this generation, it's going to be interesting to see more details about the PS5 once the embargo's begin to lift!

    There has been a real lack of information compared to the Series X

    Interesting post by Ubisoft claiming that Assassin's Creed Syndicate won't work on PS5.

    https://ubisoftconnect.com/en-US/news/ignt.23726

    There's some web script that identifies whether PS4 games work on PS5. The official list from Sony has Hitman Go as "NOT COMPATIBLE," AC Syndicate as "BOOTABLE" and Resogun as "COMPATIBLE" as examples. I wonder how many games have a "BOOTABLE" status which suggests not 100% compatible.

    EDIT: Someone on ResetEra has done a list of "BOOTABLE" games.

    We’ll just have to wait and see what actually happens when these games are tried on the ps5.

    Sony are saying 99% of the games will work. This list in the spoiler tag looks way too big.

    They will probably be playable but have minor errors or glitches or something. Nothing that will stop you from completing the game in all likelihood.

    That list doesn't even make up close to 1% though. So it's entirely plausible.

    Either that or Sony are still working behind the scenes with regards to BC.
