@Unlucky13 It is strange that Sony is saying it’ll be another year, given the state of the pandemic and how it seems society is significantly more stable now versus a year ago.
There is a certain comfort in having a little extra time to catch up on backlogs.

My plan is also to try to experience any last gen games that have a PS5 upgrade on the new system. Control has made me a believer in that. So I pushed FF7R down further into my backlog until Intergrade comes out in July. I’m not touching Cyberpunk until the PS5 version comes out (if even then). I’m also waiting on the inevitable PS5 upgrade for TLoU2. Etc, etc.

I have the luxury of waiting since I have so many games to play.

I am feeling like there are PS4 games that will end up dying in my backlog and I’ll never get around to as I prioritize PS5 games in the future. In happened for me with PS3 also. Even with backwards compatibility, I’ll eventually have enough current gen games that I’ll just never go back, I figure.

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

When hell freezes over that's when! Or when people stop wearing masks while sitting alone in their cars or walking down the sidewalk no where near another living person. Whichever comes first.

@Th3solution I see a lot of people say things like that, but I've never had any sort of backlog personally. I typically buy one game, put 80-200 hours into it over six to eight weeks, and then move on to another one. A lot of the time, there might be four to six games that come out in a year that I want to play, but sometimes fewer.

@Unlucky13 I admire your discipline. I sometimes feel like a virtual hoarder 😅, although thankfully I don’t let it take over my life (at least not too much). I play games slowly, more so than the average Joe. And I’ve come to the conclusion that I just have to accept that fact and that I’ll always be a little behind.

Do you subscribe to PS Plus? I think that’s part of my issue of having a constant drip-feed of titles that I want to play, even when I’m not buying them. Not to mention there was an immediate addition of like 4 or 5 games through the PS Plus collection when I got a PS5, in addition to the other PS5 exclusive games that had been given out in the months preceding my actual getting the console. So in addition to a few dozen PS4 games I had accumulated over the years that I want to play, I abruptly added about 10 more. And so far on PS5, two of my very favorite games that I’ve played over the last few years came to me by way of this kind of “free” avenue — Astrobot’s Playroom and Control. Both have been simply fantastic and I didn’t pay an extra penny for either one.
I do really like having Push Square which helps me to prioritize the backlog, based on what people say about their experiences.

Anyways, I got a little off subject there, but I guess it relates to the whole obtaining a PS5 issue.

@Th3solution I do subscribe to PS+, however it's been a long time since I've actually downloaded a free game that way. Its worked out for a while that about once every three months, they have a game that I love but already own, and the rest are ones that I'm not interested in. I think in the last year, the only other ones Ive actually played are Shadow of the Tomb Raider and the Uncharted Collection, which I already had in single game form on the PS3, and Street FIghter, which I messed around with for about two weeks before deleting.

I also play games MUCH slower than the typical person. I find that my playthroughs sometimes even triple the listed average for some games. I take my time, want to explore every nook and corner than a game has to offer and see and do all that I can before moving on. But for me, there are just fewer and fewer games being made that I can really enjoy that way, so its more a search for ANY that I'm going to buy, rather than ever having too many.
