I disagree about the XB1X myself but I will agree it is struggling to deliver the quantity of 'GotY' contenders that Sony are. I wouldn't say they are 'lacklustre' and still have a few 'stand-out' games that do well in both critic reviews and awards - maybe not your taste. MS had a good few years at the start of the gen with exclusives but the delays and cancellations, especially at a time when Sony's own studios all seemed to have their games coming to fruition. Just a few years ago, there were articles on where Sony's big games were, especially around the Holiday season and you were getting 1 or 2 big games in March/May where as MS had Forza, Halo, Sunset Overdrive, Tomb Raider, Gears etc. The Library of games on the XB1 isn't lacklustre as a lot are the same as PS4 and the X plays all the new releases at higher standards. It also has ~500 BC games and a LOT of those aren't lacklustre either. They maybe 'old' but they are still part of the library of games you can play on an XB1.

I don;t see backwards compatibility as being an "over rated gimmick" - in many ways it can be seen as one more reason to NOT jump platform. That's what went wrong with the PS3 as people couldn't take their PS2 games across and so people jumped to the X360. MS faced the same situation this time around as the PS4 was so much better than the launch non-BC XBox that many people jumped ship again. Whether you would use it or not, it means that the games that DON'T get remastered (where oh where are the Norrath games in the PS2 Classics?) can be retained and used by the player that wants them.

I think that besides PS5 having hardware that is capable of running games in native 4k at 60fps, it should, as mentioned in the comments, continue with great story-driven single player ips; and last but not the least, it should bring back backward compatablity, a vital feature considering that a lot of gamers purchased the remastered editions of already-purchased PS2 and PS3 era games in the current generation. Personally, I've already invested a lot in my PS4 libaray of games, so, B.C. is a highly important factor in deciding whether my future gaming machine would be a PS5 or not. I hope Sony is working on B.C. and on the release of PS5 would not pour ice water on my hands.

@OneMan I disagree about the XB1X myself but I will agree it is struggling to deliver the quantity of 'GotY' contenders that Sony are. I wouldn't say they are 'lacklustre' and still have a few 'stand-out' games that do well in both critic reviews and awards - maybe not your taste. MS had a good few years at the start of the gen with exclusives but the delays and cancellations, especially at a time when Sony's own studios all seemed to have their games coming to fruition. Just a few years ago, there were articles on where Sony's big games were, especially around the Holiday season and you were getting 1 or 2 big games in March/May where as MS had Forza, Halo, Sunset Overdrive, Tomb Raider, Gears etc. The Library of games on the XB1 isn't lacklustre as a lot are the same as PS4 and the X plays all the new releases at higher standards. It also has ~500 BC games and a LOT of those aren't lacklustre either. They maybe 'old' but they are still part of the library of games you can play on an XB1.

Talking of BC, one thing the X does do well, which to me is better than just Backwards Compatibility, is to transform a lot of those 'older' games by at least stabilising the frame-rate performance, improving load times and of course the 'baked in' 12x Anisotropic Filtering. Some do get extra enhancements - like 4k for example and you can't play RDR on PC - one of the best games of last gen.

I have no doubt that Sony will continue to deliver a great library of first party games. I doubt we will see too much of their 'longer' term plans - which Sony have been keen to show in the past with many games being revealed 18m+ before they are released because they are likely to be coming out on 'next' gen.

I wouldn't be surprised though if we do see games like LoU2 or Ghost of Tsushima on PS5 as a 'remaster' even though I expect it was built to native 4k standards and with animations suitable for 60fps but then scaled down to PS4/Pro. Some of Sony's biggest sellers this gen are 'remasters' - LoU, Nathan Drake Collection.

Sony know what works and what can affect their sales too. People may say they want BC for example but Sony know if they put all their efforts into making the 'best' console they can for the future without wasting money on making it compatible with older tech, that, combined with their first party games will sell. Maybe those who say they won't buy without BC, will buy 'months' later when Sony show what's coming later. Its not as if their PS4 library won't be playable on their PS4 after all. All Sony have to do is announce HZD2, GoW sequel etc and people will be looking to buy a PS5 regardless of BC, Cross-play or any other things that Sony may not offer or be strong on

We’re approaching a pivotal period for PlayStation, as work is reportedly now well underway on the PlayStation 5, and the firm’s going to have to manage the transition from its current format to the new one. The good news is that Sony’s first-party is stronger than it’s ever been, and we’d be shocked if teams like Guerrilla Games weren’t already hard at work on titles like to help sell the new hardware. It’s going to be an exciting couple of years.
