Sony is preparing for the PlayStation 5 that has been announced, but has not yet been revealed. At the heart of the system there will be an AMD 8-core chipset that uses the third-generation Ryzen architecture and a Radeon Navi GPU. Combined with an SSD for storage, and you have a fast machine. With that machine, Sony now plans that its new console be compatible with previous versions of at least the era or the PS4 games.
According to CB, there are conflicting reports about whether it will go beyond the PS4 games, but I love it if they did. In addition, Jim Ryan, CEO of PlayStation, recently added that the compatibility with previous versions is considered incredibly important. What I need to know is why it's important for the PS4, but now it's for the PS5.
Backward compatibility is not the only way that PlayStation will try to win over players. At the end of the day, there is a metric that stands out above all others: exclusive games. If you have exclusive games or good exclusive games, you will not sell your system. It's as simple as that.
Once again, CB reports on this saying that says that Sony wants to invest only in its independent developers through organic growth, but also plan to acquire more studies. This is possibly the easiest way to acquire exclusive. Find a studio that makes games that you like, buy them, now your games are only on your console.
I love the idea of compatibility with previous versions, but I'm about to buy more studies. First, you can force me to buy and PS5 when it is released depending on the games. Second, because they really fuck me when someone buys another company in the same market. What do you think about the current PlayStation impulse for the PS5?
