    Default Remasters of PS4 games to PS5 games are honestly a rip off

    After the showcase, seeing GTAV and Uncharted 4 looking exactly the same as the PS4 version except in 60fps and 4K. To me it feels like a scam. Yes we had the same on PS3 to PS4 Remasters with Last of Us, and a ton of other games like Bioshock, but at least the PS4 wasn't backwards compatible and PS3 architecture was completely different so you knew developers were putting effort converting the games to run on PS4. But with these PS5 remasters even Mark Cerny said developing a game on PS5 is no different than a PS4. Both PS4 and PS5 share the same architecture. Developers like Neverrealm and Respawn have made native versions of there games for free. Even a non native 4K60 patch would suffice. I honestly wouldn't mind a remaster if it was like Spiderman with RT support, new textures and models, improved graphics etc but Uncharted just looked higher resolution and 4K.

    Seconded. I wouldn't be surprised if PS4 versions get delisted so PS5 ports can be sold at premium prices.
    *PSA* Wii Redump collector's can now unscrub ISO files. So scrubbed games can now be verified. You can find the program to do this here

    Sony just doing what Nintendo has been doing for years.

    I remember when PS5 was just about to be released (well, before it was delayed by covid stuff), some employees at an EB near me (not my regular, another one) were raving on about how PS5 will have BC just like XB1 has had for several years. Basically arguing that PS1/2/3/4 discs could be used in PS5 to download an updated digital version, even though no specifics were ever given about BC back then afaik. I wasn't arguing that it wouldn't happen at all, I was just saying that because it was just talk at that point and given Sony's record with PS4 (plus them being Japanese and more likely to follow Nintendo's example of raping customers) I thought it was pretty unlikely.

    I think that whole conversation started by me asking why they stocked way more PS4 games than XB1... "PlayStation is better" Such views are only based on exclusives and nothing else.

    Sony moved their HQ out of Japan .

    Edit: SIE, not the parent.

    Are you telling me it isn't a Japanese company now, like the Chinese bought them?

    No. They might get some decent games out the door if that were the case.

    I made a correction to my previous post.

    I agree. I mean GTA V on PS5 doesn't look any better than the PS4 port. Is Rockstar even working GTA VI at this point? Lol. At least more Sony First/Second party games are coming to PC.
