- what did you not like about the backward compatibility? So far, it has worked very well for my.
My biggest complaint is that you cannot PS5 games off external storage. You have to transfer the game to the internal hard drive before playing.
There really isn’t a killer app yet… other than you get to play the newer updated games on the PlayStation 5. I updated my PS4 to a PS5 because it (so far) plays all my old PS4 games… even from the external drive. It was super easy to move all PS4 games over to the PS5 with my 4TB external drive. They were also immediately playable.
I still have my PlayStation 3 for PS1, 2, and 3 games. That comes in super handy as we are still finishing some PS3 games such as Lego Pirates of the Caribbean.
I will say… it is a beast of a system. It’s large. It’s pretty quiet too. But it is large. You really have to have the real estate for it.
The other negative for me is the cash outlay to get into this system. After 4 controllers and the bundle… it was not cheap. I didn’t feel super excited that it took a solid year to acquire one that was not scalped. I too bought a bundle, but it was all very usable items… no headsets… etc… but there was a GameStop gift card, a 1 year ps plus subscription (at full price…..) and the rest were games.
