This is the discussion thread for an article on GTPlanet:
The majority of indie devs is still releasing their games on PSN. In fact, there are quite a few indie games available only on PS and PC. Some of them were even released day one on PS Plus, like Fall Guys, Maquette, Oddworld: Soulstorm, First Class Trouble, Operation Tango, Hunter's Arena and Hell Let Loose.What makes me curious is how Sony is going to court indie devs and smaller companies for this, considering most indie devs have migrated to Microsoft in droves because of the benefits of Game Pass in getting the word out, and Sony has frustrated indie devs because their program is labrythine and impossible to get contact established with Sony.
PS1/2/P emulation should be easy, and I could potentially see them do that. I really doubt we'll see PS3 emulation, and it will just be streaming as we currently have with PS NowPS1-3 and PSP games? I assume this is through PS Now streaming and not actual emulation (which would be far, far better), but it's nice to see PSP games getting some love again. I wonder if we'll see GTPSP again? And hopefully we'll have Sacknana in 4K.
That would be great if they do because I don't care for the free games to much as long I can access multiplayer and get a discount from sale games I am good.I was/am hoping for a cheaper tier 0.5 that only gives access to multiplayer. Some of the "free" games are OK but I could happily live without them.
“I am Spartacus!” 😉
I was referring to when they tried to double the price to push people towards the game pass. That idea did not go down well and they changed their mind pretty quick. I just hope Sony doesn’t try and pull the same ********.When did they change the price for Xbox Live Gold?
Literally didn't notice this at all. So in short, it never happened? Sound's ok if that's the case and lends more to them actually listening to a playerbase, so that's good.I was referring to when they tried to double the price to push people towards the game pass.

It's literally in the article.How is this different than PlayStation Now?
It's literally in the article.
PS Plus = access to online multiplayer, free games monthly, demos etc.
PS Now = game streaming service
"Spartacus" base = PS Plus (equivalent to Xbox Gold)
"Spartacus" mid-tier = PS Plus + downloadable game library (equivalent to Xbox Gold + Xbox Game Pass)
"Spartacus" top-tier = PS Plus + PS Now (equivalent to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate)
Although that's just the reported functionality; nothing is finalised at this point.
In an ideal world (for me), PS3 and maybe PS2 (I'm not sure how good PS2 emulation is nowadays, and I've only played one emulated PS2 game on PS4) backwards compatibility would be through an accessory (think of the GameCube Game Boy player but with CELL) that connects to the PS5. That way I wouldn't have to deal with game streaming and have to pay a monthly fee to rent a game I already own. Luckily the PS1 is very easy to emulate so the PlayStation Player wouldn't be needed for it, but I'm not sure about PSP emulation. But really, would PSP games fit on the PS5? The graphics are so bad, especially on big screens, that it just would be more appropriate to have PSP games running on mobile phones or even a PSP2. Or the Switch.PS1/2/P emulation should be easy, and I could potentially see them do that. I really doubt we'll see PS3 emulation, and it will just be streaming as we currently have with PS Now
