Remember, these games aren't individual downloads, but are bundled together in the Nintendo Switch Online NES, SNES, GB, N64, Genesis / Mega Drive, GBA applications, which are 'free' to download. Each title benefits from save states (and the ability to rewind the action for the NES, SNES, and GB games).
Of those ROMs you have just how many do you actually play? I'm guessing only a small fraction, afterall, no two people like the same things. I could care less about sports titles but platformers and RPGs I love. Right now you have no control over what games you play on the service. At least with VC you could purchase only games you wanted and could play at anytime. Maybe they should've put more effort into getting the entire gaming library on the service. It would certainly cut down on illegally downloading ROMs if you could actually buy it. Will people still download illegally? Heck yeah but the majority will gladly pay for games.
NES games: Didn't even lookSNES: booted up Super Metroid but would rather have a game save that lasts forever, without a subscription, on my 3DS and mini console. No point investing time here. N64: Probably play, but that's what I thought about SNES before it came out. Gamecube: I'd rather buy the good games as HD remasters like Windwaker HDWii: Wii sports would be fun as a freebie, or the one on Wii U they thought people would subscribe to. Wii U: I'm not sure they released any games I wanted, except Windwaker HD
It's great to see these collections grow over time with some great titles available. There are a few shortcomings like many titles still being unavailable that would be great additions. And hopefully someday the ability to buy to own certain titles or collections. It would be cool if, but I doubt Nintendo ever would release a cartridge of the entire service or individual console compilations as they are at some point. Could you imagine say the Super Nintendo Collection getting a physical release and having games like Earthbound on a Switch cartridge? I'll dream.
Though not a native of the island, Sonic the Hedgehog would often find himself on its mystical shores, and more than once had he run into the evil doctor, foiling an untold number of schemes. Just as Eggman predicted, in no time at all does the blue hedgehog learn of the doctor's intentions, running at sonic speed to confront him.
The success of Sonic the Hedgehog has led to the game being released for numerous systems, and included in most compilations of Mega Drive games. The 2000s also saw the game sold through a number of download services.
During the 1990s and early 2000s, modifying Sonic the Hedgehog involved directly editing the ROM file with tools such as hex editors and Tile Layer Pro. Such efforts were somewhat crude by today's standards, and generally only produced straightforward changes to the game's data (graphics, levels etc.). In 2004 the first disassembly was produced, which allowed code and data to be restructured in any conceivable way, and then recompiled into a fully working ROM file. Subsequent years of refinement has produced a completely labelled and commented disassembly, which is hosted on GitHub.
Jump into the original Sonic the Hedgehog! Speed by in a blur usingthe supersonic spin attack at high speed, defy gravity around loop-the-loops and defeat Dr. Eggman as the fastest hedgehog of all-time. Gotta Go Fast!

At the time of writing, there are just 6 PS4 games will not be backwards compatible on PS5. On the PlayStation Store, these titles will be accompanied with a description reading "Playable on: PS4 only". The full list is as follows:
While the vast majority of PS4 games will work on PS5 without any errors, Sony has marked some games on the PlayStation Store with the following warning: "When playing on PS5, this game may exhibit errors or unexpected behaviour and some features available on PS4 may be absent." It's important to note that any PS4 games carrying this message will load and be playable on the PS5, but they may exhibit errors like minor graphical glitches or bugs. The full list of all PS4 games that may exhibit errors on PS5 is as follows:
Yes, physical PS4 game discs will play on PS5. You'll be able to insert physical PS4 game discs into the PS5 and play them, as well as download digital software you've purchased from the PlayStation Store. Note that you won't be able to use physical game discs on the PS5 Digital Edition (See Also: PS5 Digital Edition vs PS5: What's the Difference?), as it doesn't have a disc drive.
It would be great if it's BC all the way back, but Sony are blatantly having one eye on future sales whereby they release further remastered versions of old games etc. I think PS3 and PS4 should be essential because, if anything, you would then be able to download ALL games on PS Now. The connection on that service makes streaming unplayable a lot of the time, which means half the service is worthless. If you could download ALL the games then it's value would be so much better. Not bothered about PS1 or PS2 personally (as long as they release a remastered THPS3 of course)!
@Averagewriter the ps3 was tough as nails.i had my xbox 360 repaired 4 times before i gave up on the thing and bought a ps3 which never failed.i will admit freely at being very disappointed with a lot of game ports but first party games were pretty much spot on.to say the ps3 was a fragile console is not an accurate statement really as it was and still is a sturdy bit of engineering...operating system flakey as hell...
I really hope Sony won't let us charge again with "remaster" treatment to benefit both 4K/60 at least especially from PlayStation Studio games. It's odd if we want to play Ghost of Tsushima in 4K/60 in PS5 without a "free upgrade" even if we have the PS4 version already. Microsoft is already doing this via Smart Delivery, best example of it is Gears 5 running in 4K/60 via free update without having to pay again to benefit those features.
@Darylb88 PS5 WILL PLAY 99% OF PS4 GAMES via BC so if on ps4 disc just insert it will play better version if have digital games just download on ps5 all ya ps4 games regardless if own or from ps plus can just download simples.
Assassin's creed Syndicate: you have Shadow issues on the world.Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash: you have some shader issues on characters BUT only on certain Stages like Peach Beach (Night)Modern Warfare (2019): Refuses to work when you own the Disc version. will tell you to reinstall the game every time you restart the console. only fix is to download the game to the SSD and keep it there. moving the game to the SSD when it's already installed does not work
Sony needs to up their game. My son has the Series X and Far Cry 5 and several other game from last gen run at 60fps and look like totally new games. I wish they would implement something similar on the PS5. Far Cry 5 as an example looks the same on the PS5 as it does on the PS4 Pro but on Series X looks like a new game. Hopefully that changes in the next few months if not sooner.
During his many adventures, Sonic has traveled from the ends of the world to the far reaches of space and time, facing countless trials that have tested him to the fullest, earning him many titles, allies, and the scorns of several foes. Well-known for his legendary attitude and somewhat short temper, yet strong sense of justice, compassion, and love for freedom and adventure, Sonic's countless victories over the villains he has faced and his extraordinary set of abilities both have given him somewhat of a celebrity status, having many fans who yearn for his cool lifestyle. However, he does not care about that at all and continues to run freely to this day.
In April 1990, Sega requested a game that involved a mascot for their company. They wanted a character to rival Nintendo's flagship mascot Mario; Sega president Hayao Nakayama in particular wanted a character as iconic as Mickey Mouse. Sega had previously used Alex Kidd as their mascot, but because he was considered too similar to Mario, he was deemed unsatisfactory. Several character designs were submitted by its AM8 research and development department. These included a wolf, a bulldog, a robot, and a warrior character. However, the team put emphasis on speed for the game, which came from Yuji Naka attempting to get through Super Mario Bros.'s World 1-1 as fast as he could. Due to this, Sega started to only consider fast creatures, such as kangaroos and squirrels, while scrapping designs not associated with fast animals. One of these ideas involved a rabbit who could grab objects with prehensile ears. It showed potential, but was too complex for the Sega Mega Drive's hardware. Afterward, the team narrowed its search down to animals that could roll into a ball, based on the idea for an attack-based move, which led them to consider armadillos and hedgehogs. The hedgehog character, which was proposed by Naoto Ohshima, ultimately prevailed. After that, Ohshima went on vacation to New York, taking sketches with him. There, he went to Central Park, where he would ask locals for their opinions on them, which led to the hedgehog character being deemed the favorite.
During the design of his debut game, Sonic was originally colored teal, though he was later given a light shade of blue, but that got changed to dark blue fur so he would stand out against certain backgrounds and so that he would match the color of Sega's logo. According to Ohshima, Sonic's basic design was created by combining Felix the Cat's head with Mickey Mouse's body. He was also designed so he could be easy for children to draw and look familiar, as well as to exhibit a "cool" attitude, representative of the United States at the time. His shoes had buckles that drew inspiration from Michael Jackson's boots on the album cover for Bad and Santa Claus' red and white color scheme, whom Ohshima deemed the most "famous character in the world". Meanwhile, his personality was inspired by then-future president of the United States Bill Clinton's "get it done" attitude, who Ohshima felt embodied a modern sensibility of wanting to get things done right away, righting wrongs as they presented themselves instead of letting them linger. According to Yuji Naka, Sonic's color was also meant to symbolize peace, trust, and coolness, which are the attributes of his character. Sonic's spikes were emphasized to make him look sleeker, and he was given the ability to spin while jumping so that attacking and jumping could be controlled with a single button. However, Sonic was created without the ability to swim because of a mistaken assumption by Naka that all hedgehogs could not do so. 2b1af7f3a8
