The Daily Moot: PlayStation 5 Backwards Compatibility

News Picks

1. Sony's Cloud-Based Backwards Compatibility

Sony has apparently filed a patent for a cloud-based backwards compatibility system for the PlayStation 5. Sony had previously announced that the PS5 would be backwards-compatible with most PS4 games, but this new system would enable players to enjoy PlayStation games dating all the way back to the PS1 era. It’s unclear exactly how this new feature would work, or if it would be tied to Sony’s PlayStation Now service, but this new patent certainly provides some hope for those who are looking to play previous-generation games on their next-gen system.

  2. CS:GO New Anti-Cheat   CS:GO’s latest update introduced a new anti-cheat system called “Trusted Mode,” but it seems to be doing more harm than good. Trusted Mode appears to be flagging many normal processes, such as OBS, Discord, and Spotify, as cheat systems. Not only is it booting players from the game for innocuous programs, but it doesn’t actually mention which process is causing the issue, making solving the problem a troubleshooting nightmare for players. The new anti-cheat also prevents players from playing in community servers or custom game modes, both of which are major aspects of CS:GO. While it’s clear that these issues need to be resolved soon, Valve has not yet released a statement regarding their plans.

  3. Epic Freebies   Another week of freebies from Epic Games is here. This week’s free games are Killing Floor 2, Lifeless Planet: Premier Edition, and The Escapists 2. You can grab your free copies of these games directly from the Epic Games Store from now until July 16. As long as you claim the games by July 16, they will stay in your library forever.   4. Comic-Con at Home   IGN has announced a collaboration with San Diego Comic-Con for an upcoming digital event called “Comic-Con@Home.” The event will be completely free and will include many of the features SDCC is known for such as interviews, celebrity panels, and cosplay events. Some of the confirmed media attendees include The Walking Dead, The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, Adventure Time, Archer, Bill & Ted, and more. Comic-Con@Home is set to kick off on July 22.

  5. Warzone Juggernaut Mode Removed   After just one week in circulation, Infinity Ward has removed the popular Juggernaut Battle Royale mode from the Warzone playlist. The 200-player battle royale mode, which was around for 2 weeks, has also been removed from the playlist. Although it was clear that both modes were limited-time events, most players expected them to be around for quite a bit longer, especially considering their popularity. In their place, Warzone has now added a regular Quads mode and a “Stimulus Trios” mode to the mix. Although there’s no timeline for the return of the Juggernaut and 200BR modes, it seems likely that both LTMs will make their way back into the playlist in the future.

    When is Conan gonna be free mannn

  • Green LV.31 Legend Jul 10, 2020, 05:00 AM

    It won’t, they announced it on Twitter a week or so ago I think

  • SwivelChair LV.17 Carry Me Jul 10, 2020, 05:22 AM

    What the hell are you talking about? Conan and his team haven’t said anything about this on Twitter and neither has Valve. He definitely could still be voicing the popular Half Life protagonist in future games and/or other media. He’s already been a big fan of games like Fallout and GTA for years so I definitely think that O’brien is a perfect candidate for the role and I’m positive Valve agrees with me. We’ll just have to wait and see. Stop telling people lies.
