Nothing. I usually wait a year or 2 after a new system. More game choices and at cheaper prices. Having said that Bloodborne 2 or Star Wars battlefront 2 ps2 remake might get me close or looking for PS5 sales.

Crash Bandicoot 4
TimeSplitters 4
Shenmue 4
X Com 3
A Star Wars game Amy Hennig is allowed to finish

Or, like always, some exciting new IPs.

There was a game idea here. It's gone now.

I don't think there is a singular game that would make me buy it, but I will most likely buy it at launch regardless.

Death Stranding 2
Bloodborne 2
Horizon 2
L.A. Noire 2
Ratchet & Clank 2
Sekiro 2
The Last Guardian 2

In short: something with a 2 in it.

Asked my wife about this and without hesitation she said Knack 3. I should stress that she wasn't joking. But more like the first one.

A little later she says a new Ratchet and Clank. So there we have it.

@Tirus666 Agreed on Resistance.
I'm ready to buy the PS5 on release day nonetheless, probably with a new 4K TV as prices would have dropped by then.

ICO, Shadow of the Colossus and The Last Guardian are all so different from each other that I would expect something very different next as well. @Kidfried

@Ryall I'm thinking we will get a new game but still set in the same universeworld like the previous 3 games.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

@Ryall Didn't want to ruin my combo of 2's.

Buying a PS5 doesn't really come down to a case of any particular launch games for me but I would love for CDPR to do a full remake of Witcher 1&2 once Cyberpunk 2077 is in the can. I would probably actually have a stroke or something.

Where I would definitely buy a PS5:
The Last of Us Part II
New Deus Ex Game

Most Wanted:
-The Last of Us: Part II
-New Deus Ex Game

First and foremost japanese games, like Yakuza, Persona, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy and Nier. New episodes of Y's and Legend of Heroes would be appreciated, too. If they manage to propose a suitable portable solution, then great stuff like Dangan Rompa and Zero Escape would be greatly appreciated too.

And other fun stuff, like a new Mass Effect, a Spider-Man sequel and another God of War.

I forgot about this one. Whatever Ueda is working on. Maybe it's late PS4, but it could be early PS5. Whenever it comes out, I'll be there.

Horizon 2, Spider-Man 2, etc. are all fine, but I hope they shake up the formula a bit. I hope it's not just more of the same. Otherwise I prefer new ideas and IPs, and with so many sequels all but confirmed, I hope there's still room for that.

I do find it funny that people are mentioning games that would make them buy a PS5 but in reality, I bet the majority here would buy a PS5 regardless.

Looking ahead, the likelihood of the current generation being around indefinitely is undeniably very slim to none. The current base models are already struggling to run games at a consistent full HD with methods such as Dynamic Scaling utilised just to keep the frame rates from dropping too much. Its no secret that the XB1 is struggling more, that's down to being more than a complete Switch less powerful (well apart from the CPU) than the base PS4 so its no wonder that its struggling more. Regardless of the fact the PS4 is the stronger, it too is showing its age so its inevitable that gamers, if they wish to remain gaming, will have to upgrade at some point in the near future.

Unless these people are considering the PC or whatever MS brings out instead of the PS5, I cannot see people 'refusing' to or not buying unless certain games are released. If the games they mention aren't released, will they buy Xbox instead? Will they go without 'new' games that can't or won't be scaled right down to PS4 whilst waiting for specific titles to release or be announced?

For me, I don't really care what games the PS5 has or at the very least announced. It makes NO difference to my decision what so ever. I doubt very much that whatever games Sony is prepared to share, what launch titles are released etc will have any influence on my decision. I am a 'console' gamer (not PC) and want the 'best' platform to play games on. Even if the 'best' console (lets be honest here, games are dependent on power - the more the better games look AND run!!) is the next Xbox, the best way to play Naughty Dog, Guerilla Games, Sucker Punch etc will ALWAYS be the Playstation and so I will buy a PS5 regardless as I know that Sony's Studios will be making games I want to play. If the PS5 is also the 'best' console for 3rd Party, I will still buy the next Xbox for any Exclusives they have too. If they are both equally matched, PERFECT as that will at least stop some of the pettiness and not 'force' me to buy games on a certain platform just to get the 'best' experience.

Anyone who says Resolution doesn't matter is partially right but that is just one 'spoke' of a much larger wheel. Its been sacrificed in current generation because the multitude of other 'graphical' settings are already at the lowest and turning off 'shadows' or 'Ambient Occlusion', reducing draw distance of certain objects, texture quality, shadow quality etc would look visually even worse than dropping the resolution and having to put up with a bit of upscale blur - a softer looking image. I bet no-one here would have voted for God of War as Game of the Year had it been only 240p. If you have the opportunity to play a Full HD ultra standard visual settings (as PC gamers can) and a locked 30fps on one console or the same game at 720p medium visual settings and a locked 30fps for the 'same' money, I bet everyone would opt to buy the Full HD version. If you have SkyHD (or equivalent) you don't watch the SD channels if there is a HD version available. the console that only delivers 720p is going to need replacing sooner as its going to reach the point where games can't be scaled down and still be HD or playable - the Full HD console has a lot more headroom. I know that's a lot more extreme than we see between the two current consoles but the point is that the PS4's advantage in power is giving it more 'headroom' than the XB1 but its still not powerful enough to continue offering the games that are being made at the highest possible standards and overall, these standards are having to be scaled down to work. The 'highest' standard in visuals is 1080p, visual settings on max and at 60fps - that is the maximum the PS4 'could' offer - same as the XB1 too. Whether you care if you have to play a game mostly at 900p with 'medium' settings and mostly a 30fps whilst the XB1 is mostly at 720p with mostly medium settings and an average frame rate a bit lower is not up for debate, this is indicative of the fact that 'soon', games won't run on base XB1 - not in HD anyway and soon after that, the PS4 will also reach that point.

As I said above, unless you do upgrade, regardless of what games have released or been announced, you will have to upgrade to continue playing 'new' releases. If the games you say will make you buy a PS5 aren't announced or released, will you not buy a PS5? Will you stick with your PS4 clearing up the backlog whilst waiting for certain games? I know I didn't buy my PS4 for Horizon: Zero Dawn or God of War - I can't say I didn't buy it for Killzone or Infamous 2nd Son as I knew of these beforehand - not that they had a big influence - it was Sony's history, what they had given me as a gamer in the past and the potential they have from their numerous studios for the future that made me buy and will make me buy a PS5.

If they don't release LoU2 or Ghost of Tsushima on PS5, I would still buy a PS5 for whatever comes next from ND & SP. If H:ZD sequel isn't next from GG, I will still buy a PS5 regardless of whatever they have in store, same as the devs of games like God of War, Days Gone etc. The only place to play these is on Sony so I will buy a PS5 regardless of what games I know of at the time. 3rd Party games may well be bought on PS5 too, maybe on the next Xbox - either way, I will have both consoles to play them on because as a gamer, I want the best gaming experience possible. Some of that is 'visual' and some of that is physical too - the responsiveness of the controller, the input lag, the consistency of the frame rates. If the visual is blurry, with objects, textures etc popping in at certain distances, these affect my immersion - like screen tear, judder, sluggish response of the controller etc that's caused by incorrect frame pacing and/or unstable frame rates do as well. I am not saying a game has to look ultra-realistic to be 'impressive' but that it has to at least conform to realistic properties - things like Shadows don't just suddenly go from a low res mess to a hi res, defined shape just because you are 1 step close, objects don't materialise and dematerialise depending on your proximity. It doesn't matter if its ultra realistic or some artistic, cel-shaded stylised representation - the core principals that are often determined by 'visual' settings which can be 'sacrificed' to make a game run on consoles - these things need powerful GPU's and CPU's as well as RAM to work as the developer intended or envisioned - often these can be quite different levels too.

Anyway, the TL:DR is that I honestly can't see many here not buying a PS5 at some point whether the Games they say will make them buy have been announced, let alone released!

A pessimist is just an optimist with experience!

Why can't life be like gaming? Why can't I restart from an earlier checkpoint??

This is what I say I'm going to do: I'm going to wait and see what Xbox has, and wait and see what PS5 has, and then make an informed decision on which one I'm going to buy based on factors including but not limited to exclusives, price, and features. And then at a later date I might pick up the other if there's enough justification for owning both.

This is what I'm really going to do: I'm going to get excited around launch time and just order a PS5 with nothing to play on it but Knack 3 because it's new and exciting.

@johncalmc I did exactly this for the last two generations. The ps3/360 era I did come in a couple of years late, so was able to make a bit more informed decision.

I will most likely do the same next gen, but Sony will have drop an almighty clanger and MS to really knock it out of the park for me to swap this time.

That's kinda where I am. I'm used to PlayStation. I like the ecosystem. I like trophies. I like the exclusives. Xbox could be £100 cheaper next gen and I still wouldn't switch. It would have to go the extra mile and just be better in every way, and it's probably not going to happen. Xbox has a problem with games, and I buy consoles to play games, so I'm probably not going to get an Xbox.

@johncalmc @JohnnyShoulder The hardest decision for me is which to buy first - if they release simultaneously like they did in 2013 - well a few weeks apart anyway.

This generation was very difficult for me to decide. They also released month's after moving into my new house after separating from my partner so I had to furnish my house as well - I didn't have a bed for a week or two...

On the one hand you had Sony's PS4, easily the most powerful of the two - more powerful than both the 360 & PS3 combined (numerically on GPU computational power), Significantly faster RAM but a 'slightly' slower CPU. Killzone looked great and I enjoyed 2 and 3 (to a lesser extent - 2 had the best campaign and 3 the better MP) but Knack had no appeal at all. Infamous was months away so XB1 had more games that appealed. Sony also were now copying MS in charging for Online gaming - something else to factor in to my decision as I had never bothered with PS+ before. The PS4's extra HP under the hood also split a lot of my Xbox friends too who were jumping across from the 360.

On the other hand was MS, the weaker of the two, messed up big time with E3 and the merging of a 'gaming' console into a multi-media 'box' that used Kinect in a similar way to Alexa or Google - perhaps too forward thinking for those traditionalists wanting 'just' a dedicated gaming console. Just look at how popular and how synced in Alexa is now. That wasn't the 'only' issue I know - DRM too was too premature for the console market - especially as Digital gaming wasn't as popular then. All of this, inc the fact that MS were insistent you had to buy Kinect too so the price was higher for a multi-media focussed weaker console, didn't bode well - but I did have around 12months of Gold and a CoD: Ghosts Season Pass that would transfer up. Coupled with a stronger launch line-up of games to play and Titanfall to come soon all needed consideration.

In the end, the decision was made for me by finances. I saw an Xbox One bundle with 4 games for £50 more than 'just' the PS4 console. Adding up the cost of the 3games in that bundle that I would play - inc CoD: Ghosts and a Season Pass, PS+ subscription to play CoD & Battlefield 4 online would have ended up costing around £200 more and still furnishing my house meant that it made much more sense to buy the XB1 first. Killzone could wait until I was in a position to not only buy PS4, but to also buy software and a year of PS+ to actually get full access to any game I bought. That's why I was a bit later to jump over from my PS3. By the time my X arrived though, my PS4 library grew and overtook my Xbox library.

For me, the hardest decision will be deciding which console to buy first. Its not a question of which has the 'best' or most exclusives at all. Its not a question of which is the most powerful, has the most headroom to make the games look and run the best, which has the 'best' controller etc. I will still buy both as I know the ONLY way to play all the exclusives of both on console (not PC as I don't have room for a typical PC set-up and so only care about 'consoles') at their best is to buy both. If one ends up more as an exclusive box (as my Pro is right now), so be it - at least I can still play any exclusive, take advantage of any exclusivity/marketing deals if I choose, take advantage of any 'free' games via subscriptions, take advantage of any 'deals' that crop up in their respective digital stores etc. There are still advantages to owning both for me. At least this time I will have PS+ so that won't factor in negatively to my decision...

@BAMozzy This gen was pretty easy for me, once MS had fooked up E3, were making Kinect mandatory and I realised how bored I was of most of their exclusives, my mind was made up.
