    I tried to find something definitive but nothing showed up, so I'm not sure.

    If I had the technology, I would not nickel and dime the intermediate devices. Way too many devices to get to license. Also goes against driving mass adoption. Even worse if you go after it on an App-by-App-by-Platform basis. So Netflix on Roku is different from Netflix on PS5 is different from Netflix on iOS.

    To me the following makes sense, but of course content technology companies have their own thoughts.
    • CD: The device playing the physical media.
    • DVD: The device playing the physical media.
    • BluRay: The device playing the physical media.
    • Audio: The device playing the audio (TV, AVR, Headphones connected to console)
    • Vision: The device displaying the video (TV).

    Your list makes sense, but to me I wish it was baked into the cost of the media. Then the technology is incentivized to get it into client devices and encourages video/audio engineers to use it so they get their royalties. Then from a consumer standpoint I say I’m already paying for it, why shouldn’t I get a device that can display/process it?

    Maybe I am crazy though.

    I'm probably crazy but I don't expect PS5 to have DV and Atmos. Maybe HDR 10+.

    Too Funny if they're now using what Microsoft left behind from the X360 system, Avatar and Background Rewards. I think Ubi Connect had similar things too.

    Some got it right. Others still argued with all their blind brand loyalty against scalability.

    Sony's TVs do not support HDR10+, only Dolby Vision. So DV or bust.

    It kinda the same but it isn't. 1st party devs can still take advantage of PS5 faster SSD while XsX only games is practically non existent because of MS strategy.
    Also 1st party PS5 probably can make ray tracing only games (basically a game that needs RT without having a non RT mode) while the same thing would be hard on XsX (they can do it, but probably need to target XsS and scale up instead of targeting XsX and scale down).

    I would have been surprised if Sony dropped the bluetooth HID profile in the DualSense as that's what made DualShock 4 popular with PC owners, it supported the standard controller schema and the trackpad looked like a touchpad for cursor control. Super convenient! :yes:
