Patches and online play won't be a problem but if any DLC was a download you wouldn't be able to redeem it.

@Grumblevolcano Thanks for replying. I've been googling around and I'm 99% sure that the PS4 Borderlands DLC is all on the disc; it was a bit confusing because there are two versions for the PS3 - one with DLC included and one with a download code - which Google was happy to tell me about (I'm asking about the PS4 version, dammit!). Can anyone confirm this?

I ended up buying the Bioshock Collection instead. It wasn't even on my radar; this PS4 purchase is going to kill my wallet (so many games!).

Found Fallen Order for cheap on ebay so decided to get that. The general audience seemed to love it, so I imagine I will too.

Picked some more things up in the sale.

Dragon Quest Heroes - At this point I doubt the Switch version is making it west, so I figured why not.
Tetris Effect - for my PSVR.
Metal Max Xeno - Kinda budget looking JRPG (maybe an enhanced Vita port), but it's more techy than your typical JRPG (large emphases on tanks) so I decided I'd give it a try. Only thing is this is the kind of game that could pop up on Switch at any moment, and I'd probably rather play it there if it did.

Currently Playing:
Switch - Blade Strangers
PS4 - Kingdom Hearts III, Tetris Effect (VR)

I see PS5 is going to be backwards compatible all the way back to the the first PS . Or does that mean I can buy the first PS games on the PlayStation network. Great best PS games are all on the first PS.

@Ninfan that is just a rumor at this point. All we know 100% is that it will support ps4 games.

@Ninfan they aren't canceling anything since they have never actually announced that is would be backwards compatible with ps1 - Ps3 games. Like I said at this point in time it's a RUMOR.

I doubt it will be backwards compatible with the actual discs. As far as I'm aware, PS1 and PS2 discs were CD and DVD, so require different hardware to read them.

I'm not a hardware person at all though, so maybe I'm missing something. Maybe there's a type of disc reader that does all of them in one?

@Dezzy Blu-ray players can read DVDs and I'd assume CDs just fine. I was watching the OT Star Wars a few months ago with my PS4 a few months ago, and those were on DVDs and not Blu-ray.

In terms of BC, it'll be what's inside the actual PS4 hardware, not necessarily the discs if you ask me.

Metroid, Xenoblade, EarthBound shill

I run a YouTube/Twitch channel for fun. Check me out if you want to!

Please let me know before you send me a FC request, thanks.

@Dezzy @EvilLucario Sony patented some kind of emulator a while ago. So maybe it will be able to emulate PS1/2(/3) hardware to run the games off the discs. That would be cool, since that means that you can play all the games from day one. But O haven't read into the details yet.

PS4 games can be run natively of course, so that shouldn't be a problem.

@EvilLucario

Didn't Sony have a special proprietary type of DVD for PS2 though? I don't think they're just regular DVDs, are they?

BruceCM

Well, it does depend, @Dezzy .... Not just on the actual hardware, though! Certainly, some Blu-Ray players do play DVDs & CDs but it isn't guaranteed I'm not too sure if they did make 'special' DVDs for their games on PS2 but they certainly could include the ability to read discs from PS1, 2 & 3 easily enough
Hopefully, they can clarify exactly what they are planning before the PS5 comes out, anyway

Btw, is it a tradition we got a leak of developer kit model before we get the official looking of PS machine ?
PS5 developer kit model looked very hideous with V shape and LetsGoDigital logo. 🤨

@Anti-Matter don’t worry we can put cute stickers all around the ps5 and colour it pink. It will look so beautiful and princessissy 😀

I dunno. It's not as important, clearly, but it still commands a decent amount of attention. I get Sony not having a huge presence, but a video presentation, ala Nintendo, wouldn't hurt them.
