All the important PlayStation news you missed in a TLDR format every Tuesday and Friday mornings at 7am EST.
PlayStation 5 (not the official title but Sony seems pretty set on sequential numbering) information was revealed by Mark Cerny in talking with Wired.com. Here’s what we do know:
- Backwards compatibility with PS4
- Unclear if with other generations at this time
- Current PSVR headsets will work with PS5
- PS5 will ship with a SSD
- Spider-Man’s fast travel went from 15 seconds to .8 seconds in tests
- There will be a disc drive
- The price will be appealing – whatever that is supposed to mean
- PS5 will not launch in 2019

Anyone else remember XIII? We are getting a remake this November, November 13 to be exact. For those that do remember XIII, did you remember that David Duchovny (The X-Files’ Mulder) voiced the protagonist? Hopefully, he makes a return in all that cel-shaded glory.
