Following confirmation from Sony that all but 11 PS4 games will be playable on the PS5, Ghost of Tsushima developer, Sucker Punch, has confirmed that the game will get quite the boost on the PS5, including 60 FPS performance, and you’ll have the ability to easily transfer your progress to the PS5 and pick up exactly where you left off.
#GhostOfTsushima will be playable on PS5 on day one via backward compatibility, and you’ll be able to transfer your save from PS4 to pick up where you left off!

Running Ghost of Tsushima at 60 FPS comes courtesy of the PS5’s Game Boost feature that will make PS4 games look just a bit better. But, that’s not all, as the Game Boost feature will also enable faster loading, something confirmed in a subsequent tweet:
“PS5 owners playing with Game Boost will see an extra option to allow frame rates up to 60FPS, and while loading...
Sony has finally spilled the beans on backward compatibility, and we have some good news. In a blog post, Sony has confirmed that all PlayStation 4 games, with the exception of 11 games will be playable on the PS5. That’s 11 unplayable games out of more than 4,000, so we’re going to go ahead and write this one off as a win.
Of all the games that aren’t compatible with the PlayStation 5, the only one that you’ll probably even recognize is Hitman Go: Definite Edition. The rest are, well, not important anyway.

Just to make sure that you’re aware, when Sony updates the PlayStation Store for the PS5, these 11 games will be marked as “Playable on: PS4 only.” It should also be noted that not all games will function exactly the same way the do on PS4.

Now that Microsoft has announced pricing for the Xbox Series X and digital-only Xbox Series S, the world is waiting for Sony’s answer. From the look of things, you might want to prepare for disappointment as a new leak paints the Sony PS5 as the more expensive console, and considerably so at that. According to the leaked image posted on Twitter (shown below) the PS5 will be priced at €499.90, which comes to $594 or £460 at current exchange rates. The PS5 digital edition is listed at €399.90, which converts to $475 or £369.

If these prices are, in fact, accurate, that means you’ll have to pony up an extra $100 for the more powerful PS5 or $176 of the digital-only PS5 – something that would give the Series X quite the edge. Of course, when you look at sales history between the two companies, this price difference probably won’t be enough to paint the next-gen Xbox as the king...
First of all, it looks like Diablo 4 will be the best one of its series. In Diablo 3 we got to see a celestial battle between angels and demons, but nothing all that scary. Now looking at the new trailers (embedded below,) from the first seconds we can feel the lack of hope; the fear crawling down our spines. From the trailer, we already get symbols like 3 men required, only 3 survive. The game also presents to us, at the gate, a symbol of the main demon of Diablo 4, the boss, the biggest and the dangerous creature we can find in the game - Lilith. So when will Diablo 4 be released and what you can you expect? This guide covers everything we know so far.
(9-13-2020 - we've updated this guide to cover everything that's happened over the last 8 months in Diablo 4's developement, so be sure to check out what's changed below!)

Less than two weeks ago, Sony launched a dedicated PS5 pre-order registration page, which wasn’t for pre-ordering but to put your name into a pool to be considered worthy of pre-ordering the PS5 and a limited number of each accessory. Now, a new rumor suggests that pre-orders could open as soon as September 9th, 2020, but is there any truth to the rumor or is it just vaporware?
The rumor that the PS5 will move into pre-order status on September 9th comes courtest of @IronManPS5 on Twitter. And, that’s part of the reason why this rumor isn’t all that believable. He has accurately leaked (or predicted) some things in the past, but he’s also made a fair number of mistakes as well. With the pro-order opening date being just two days away from now, you’d think Sony would have confirmed the date, but there’s still zero confirmation from Sony or PlayStation.

Despite on-going rumors that the Sony PS5 was experiencing performance issues and may be delayed, Sony has recently confirmed that the PS5 wouldn’t be delayed into 2021. However, another rumor claims that the PS5 may be in short supply, so much so that Sony will have to limit day-one stock to avoid such a delay. Now, Sony has opened registrations for pre-orders which will give you the chance to be selected as one of the lucky folks that will get to pre-ordered a PlayStation 5. If you needed more evidence that the console would be in short supply, this news ranks right up there.
If you want to register to pre-order, you’ll need to head over to Sony’s newly launched registration webpage. From there, you can input your PlayStation Network member id into the system. From there, your number will be put into a pool with everyone else. There is no guarantee that you’ll be able to pre-order a new PS5- only the chance that you’ll be selected. You know, kind of like a raffle...
Back when the first Crysis Remastered Trailed launched, we all got excited. Of course, we all know that Saber and Crytek likely rushed the trailer out the door after the leak that popped up just days before. Then, another leak of a second trailer in July had everyone up in arms over graphics and a number of other things. When the game was delayed, the studio confirmed that they had “seen all the reactions - the good and the bad - and we're listening. We're still working on a number of things in game, as well as the storefront.” Now, a new trailer has arrived, and boy does it look like it is going to be worth the wait.
First and foremost, the trailer above confirms that Crysis Remastered is, in fact, launching on September 18 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Outside of that, we also get to see a rather convincing comparison between the graphics of the original Crysis and the remastered version. This tech trailer shows off “high-quality textures upt o...
The COVID pandemic has been devastating to just about every industry out there from automotive to healthcare to gaming. We’ve definitely seen more than a few game delays, but now Sony has come right out said that the PS5 will launch on time, and you can still expect to see it in time for the holiday season.
Of course, this comes following recent news that Sony is having issues with the PS5 and true 4k, and older rumors that Sony would be forced to limit day-one PS5 stock to avoid delays and that the PS5 has performance and overheating issues. This, however, is a breath of fresh air, especially when you consider that most gave developers are working from home with deadlines and release dates for games almost constantly changing. Just recently, Halo Infinite was delayed beyond the launch of the Xbox Series X and Cyberpunk 2077 has now been pushed back to November instead of September.
That latest confirmation that the PS5 will be on time comes from Eric Lempel, SVP and Head of...
Remember back in the late 2000s when the PlayStation 2 had a plethora of horror games? We didn’t realize it then, but we were very lucky. Sure, there are a few good horror games these days, and Capcom has done right by remastering the old Resident Evil games, but we’re still waiting for a new Silent Hill game. In all honesty, things will probably never be the same. The good news is that you will soon get some old-school thrills, thanks to a game call Tormented Souls.
Tormented Souls is being developed by Dual Effect and Abstract Digital, and will be published by PQube Limited. It looks like a weird blend between the first Resident Evil, Silent Hill, and Clock Tower. In fact, these games are what developers look to for inspiration. The game is set in an old mansion turned hospital (hello Resident Evil) and you’ll play as Caroline Walker, a woman that is investigating the disappearance of twin girls in a town known as Winterlake (hello Silent Hill.) The games official description on...
Aesthetic Gamer has a pretty good history of accurate leaks, but they are usually associated with games. This time around, he’s claiming that not only with the PlayStation 5 cost more than the Xbox Series X but that it will struggle with delivering 4K – something Sony is said to be combating with “Fake 4K,” whatever that means. With AG’s experience in leaking Resident Evil information, with the most recent leak being that Resident Evil Village will be the longest of the series thus far. That said, it shouldn’t be surprising that this leak about the PS5 is directly related to Resident Evil Village (RE8).
(2/3) But people are should get ready for the really real possibility that the PS5 is going to end up being the more expensive console between the two, I'm trying not to say much here as I was asked not to but prepare yourself, which does put Xbox X in a position it'll be the— AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem (@AestheticGamer1) August 12, 2020
