Sony PlayStation 4 & 5 with crossplay

Sony also confirmed that owners of a PS4 and PS5 can play the games together via crossplay. This should give you the incentive to switch to the PS5, because you just take the old games with you, continue to play with PS4 owners and at the same time enjoy the benefits of the PS5.

By the way, Jim Ryan from Sony also emphasized that they are currently only investigating whether cooperation with Microsoft (especially with streaming) is an option and there is still no specific contract for a product. A few days ago it was announced that they had formed a partnership.

Extremely strong hardware, the plan for more exclusive titles, a streaming service and backward compatibility sound pretty good so far. The PS5 could be a very good foundation for the coming years and who knows, maybe this generation will be enough in the streaming age and no PlayStation 6 will be needed anymore. It's going to be an exciting decade for the gaming market.
